The H202-141 monoclonal antibody specifically reacts with CD98 (4F2, Ly-10), a heterodimer composed of an 80-kDa glycosolated heavy chain covalently linked to a 34-kDa light chain, which is reported to be involved in amino acid transport. H202-141 mAb detects high levels of antigen expression on activated lymphocytes and established cell lines and lower levels of expression on resting leukocytes.
This antibody is conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV605 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max of 602-nm, BD Horizon BV605 can be excited by a violet laser and detected with a standard 610/20-nm filter set. BD Horizon BV605 is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 and an acceptor dye with an Em max at 605-nm. Due to the excitation of the acceptor dye by the green (532 nm) and yellow-green (561 nm) lasers, there will be significant spillover into the PE and BD Horizon PE-CF594 detectors off the green or yellow-green lasers. BD Horizon BV605 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting brightness equivalent to PE conjugates and can be used as a third color off of the violet laser.
