Biotin Mouse Anti-Human TCR γδ
Biotin Mouse Anti-Human TCR γδ

Two-color flow cytometric analysis of TCR γδ expression on human peripheral blood lymphocytes. Human whole blood was stained with FITC Mouse Anti-Human CD3 antibody (Cat. No. 561807/561806/555332/555916) and Biotin Mouse Anti-Human TCR γδ antibody (Cat No. 555716). Secondary staining was carried out with PE Streptavidin (Cat. No. 554061), and erythrocytes were lysed with BD FACS™ Lysing Solution (Cat. No. 349202). The two-color flow cytometric plot showing the correlated expression of TCR γδ versus CD3 was derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact lymphocytes. Flow cytometric analysis was performed using a BD FACScan™.

Preparation And Storage

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

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  3. 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.
  4. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.

B1

The B1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the γδ T cell receptor (γδ TCR). This receptor complex consists of two disulfide-linked transmembrane glycoproteins, a γ chain (45-60 kDa) and a δ subunit (40-60 kDa). The γδ TCR is associated with the signal-transducing CD3 complex. The γδ TCR is expressed by thymocytes and by peripheral T cell subsets (γδ T cells) that are located in the blood, liver, skin and various lymphoid and mucosal tissues. γδ T cells contribute to both innate and adaptive immune responses to infections and tumors. Reports suggest that γδ T cells may also play roles in antigen presentation and the regulation of autoimmune responses.

Biotin
Biotin is a ubiquitous co-factor (also known as Vitamin B7) that has many properties that make it extremely useful for molecular biology. Biotin has an extremely high affinity for the Avidin family of proteins (Kd = 10-15 M), making it the perfect tool to link two molecules. Biotin labeled antibodies can be combined with any number of Avidin-conjugated probes in order to customize an assay to a particular need. This is especially useful in the case of magnetic cell separation using streptavidin/magnetic bead conjugates, or in the case of flow cytometry using streptavidin/fluorophore conjugates.
