BUV395 Mouse Anti-Human CD31
BUV395 Mouse Anti-Human CD31

Flow cytometric analysis of CD31 expression on human peripheral blood leucocyte populations. Whole blood was stained with either BD Horizon™ BUV395 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 563547; Left Panel) or BD Horizon BUV395 Mouse Anti-Human CD31 antibody (Cat. No. 565290; Right Panel). Erythrocytes were lysed with BD FACS™ Lysing Solution (Cat. No. 349202). Two-parameter flow cytometric contour plots showing the correlated expression of CD31 (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus side-light scatter (SSC-A) signals were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter signals of intact leucocyte populations. Flow cytometric analysis was performed using a BD™ LSR II Flow Cytometer System.

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 BUV395 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon BUV395 were removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes 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. 563794/566349) or the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer Plus (Cat. No. 566385).

Product Notices

  1. 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).
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  4. 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.
  5. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.

WM59

The WM59 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to platelet endothelial cell adhesion molecule-1, (PECAM-1, PECAM1), which is also known as GPIIA', or EndoCAM. CD31 is a 130 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the Ig gene superfamily.  CD31 has wide tissue distribution and is expressed on platelets, monocytes, granulocytes, NK cells, T cell subsets, and in high amounts on endothelial cells. CD31 functions as a vascular endothelial cell adhesion molecule and is involved in the transendothelial migration of leucocytes in inflammatory responses. It might be involved in thrombosis, angiogenesis, and wound healing. The WM59 appears to recognize an epitope proximal to extracellular domain 2 of CD31.

Clone WM59 also cross-reacts with peripheral blood platelets and leukocytes of baboon, and both rhesus and cynomolgus macaque monkeys. The staining intensity of WM59+ platelets is similiar to that observed with peripheral blood platelets from normal human donors. Lymphocytes, monocytes, and granulocytes react less with WM59 than normal human leukocytes.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BUV395 which has been exclusively developed by BD Biosciences as an optimal dye for use on a 355 nm laser equipped instrument. With an Ex Max at 348 nm  and an Em Max at 395 nm, this dye has virtually no spillover into any other detector. BD Horizon BUV395 can be excited with a 355 nm laser and detected with a 379/28 filter.

BUV395
The BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet 395 (BUV395) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. This base dye is a polymer fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 348-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 395-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BUV395 is designed to be excited by the ultraviolet laser (355-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 380-nm (e.g., 379/28-nm bandpass filter). BUV395 is the ideal dye when using only one detector on the ultraviolet laser as it spills into no other detectors and no other fluors spill into it. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
