RB545 Mouse Anti-Human CD138 (Syndecan-1)
RB545 Mouse Anti-Human CD138 (Syndecan-1)
Flow cytometric analysis of CD138 (Syndecan-1) expression on U266 cells.  Cells from the Human U266 (Myeloma, ATCC® TIB-196™) cell line were stained with either BD Horizon™ RB545 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 569284; dashed line histogram) or BD Horizon™ RB545 Mouse Anti-Human CD138 (Syndecan-1) antibody (Cat. No. 569745/569773; solid line histogram). DAPI (4',6-Diamidino-2-Phenylindole, Dihydrochloride) Solution (Cat. No. 564907) was added to cells right before analysis. The fluorescence histogram showing CD138 (Syndecan-1) expression (or Ig Isotype control staining) was derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable (DAPI-negative) cells. Samples were acquired on the BD FACSymphony™ A5 SE Cell Analyzer and spectrally unmixed using FlowJo™ v10.8 software.

Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze. The antibody was conjugated to the dye under optimum conditions and unreacted dye was removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

BD® CompBeads can be used as surrogates to assess fluorescence spillover (compensation). When fluorochrome conjugated antibodies are bound to BD® CompBeads, they have spectral properties very similar to cells. However, for some fluorochromes there can be small differences in spectral emissions compared to cells, resulting in spillover values that differ when compared to biological controls. It is strongly recommended that when using a reagent for the first time, users compare the spillover on cells and BD® CompBeads to ensure that BD® CompBeads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

Product Notices

  1. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  2. This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
  3. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  4. Please observe the following precautions: Absorption of visible light can significantly alter the energy transfer occurring in any tandem fluorochrome conjugate; therefore, we recommend that special precautions be taken (such as wrapping vials, tubes, or racks in aluminum foil) to prevent exposure of conjugated reagents, including cells stained with those reagents, to room illumination.
  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 www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  7. Please refer to http://regdocs.bd.com to access safety data sheets (SDS).
  8. Human donor specific background has been observed in relation to the presence of anti-polyethylene glycol (PEG) antibodies, developed as a result of certain vaccines containing PEG, including some COVID-19 vaccines. We recommend use of BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer in your experiments to help mitigate potential background.

MI15

The MI15 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD138 (Syndecan-1), an 85-92 kDa single chain transmembrane protein, which is strongly expressed on multiple-myeloma-derived cell lines and malignant plasma cell populations. It is also expressed on pre-B cells, immature B cells, and plasma cells, but not on mature circulating B-lymphocytes. Syndecan-1 is a member of the transmembrane heparan sulfate proteoglycans family. It is also expressed on some non-hematopoietic cells, including embryonic mesenchymal cells, vascular smooth muscle cells, endothelial and neural cells. CD138 binds to many extracellular matrix proteins through its heparan sulfate side-chains, like fibronectin, collagen types I, III, and V, tenascin, thrombospondin, and antithrombin III. It is considered an extracellular matrix receptor that may serve as a co-receptor for fibroblast growth factor and related molecules. Monoclonal antibody MI15 blocks the binding of clone B-B4 but not clone DL-101 (other anti-syndecan-1 antibodies) by flow cytometric analysis.

RB545
The BD Horizon RealBlue™ 545 (RB545) fluorochrome is part of the BD family of blue (488-nm) laser dyes. It is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 496-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 545-nm. Driven by BD innovation, RB545 can be used on spectral cytometers and is designed to be excited by the blue (488-nm) laser with minimal excitation by the 561-nm yellow-green laser. RB545 has minimal spillover into yellow-green detectors and a brightness level similar to FITC.  Given its unique emission max, on a spectral instrument RB545 can be used simultaneously with FITC and PE to provide an additional color off of the blue laser. Please ensure that your instrument configuration (lasers and optical filters) is appropriate for this dye.
