Aqueous buffered solution containing ≤0.09% sodium azide.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with BD Horizon BV750 under optimal conditions that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.

Recommended Assay Procedures

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes (including BD OptiBuild Brilliant reagents) are used in the same experiment.  Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation.  The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions.  More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794).

Product Notices

  1. This antibody was developed for use in flow cytometry.
  2. The production process underwent stringent testing and validation to assure that it generates a high-quality conjugate with consistent performance and specific binding activity. However, verification testing has not been performed on all conjugate lots.
  3. Researchers should determine the optimal concentration of this reagent for their individual applications.
  4. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  5. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
  6. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at
  7. Please refer to for technical protocols.

Reacts with platelet-endothelial cell tetraspan antigen-3 (PETA-3), a 27 kD membrane glycoprotein, expressed on platelets, megakaryocytes, lymphocytes (weak), monocytes, endothelial cells and epithelial cells. PETA-3 (CD151) associates with β1 integrin in certain tissues. This has also been shown with other tetraspan superfamily members, like CD9, CD63 and α5β1. Reports indicate that this association or colocalization of CD151 with β1 integrin in tissues suggests a functional role of this molecule, however, this role has not been elucidated yet. It has also been reported that antibody 14A2.H1 is capable of platelet activation in vitro. Studies showed that different clones of CD151 monoclonal antibodies display strikingly different patterns of binding to human haemopoietic cells and tissue sections, and that this is due at least in part to the presence of the protein in complexes with different integrins.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV750 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 with an Ex Max of 405-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 750-nm. BD Horizon Brilliant BV750 can be excited by the violet laser (405 nm) and detected with a 750/30 nm filter with a 740 nm long pass. Due to spectral differences between labeled cells and beads, using BD™ CompBeads can result in incorrect spillover values when used with BD Horizon BV750 reagents. Therefore, the use of BD CompBeads or BD CompBeads Plus to determine spillover values for these reagents is not recommended.

The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 750 (BV750) dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a BV421 donor with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 409-nm and an acceptor dye with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 754-nm. BV750, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 750-nm (e.g., a 750/30 nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
