BUV395 Rat Anti-Mouse Blimp-1
BUV395 Rat Anti-Mouse Blimp-1

Multicolor flow cytometric analysis of Blimp-1 expression in activated mouse splenocytes. Mouse splenic leucocytes were stimulated for 3 days with lipopolysaccharide and stained with APC Rat Anti-Mouse CD45R/B220 antibody (Cat. No. 553092/561880). The cells were subsequently fixed and permeabilized with the BD Pharmingen™ Transcription Factor Buffer Set (Cat. No. 562574/562725) and stained with either BD Horizon™ BUV395 Rat IgG2a, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 563556; Left Plot) or BD Horizon™ BUV395 Rat Anti-Mouse Blimp-1 antibody (Cat. No. 567832; Right Plot). Bivariate pseudocolor density plots showing the correlated expression of Blimp-1 (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus CD45R/B220 were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact activated splenocytes. Unstimulated splenocytes show a staining pattern similar to Ig Isotype stained cells (data not shown). Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ Cell Analyzer System and FlowJo™ software. Data shown on this Technical Data Sheet are not lot specific.

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 to the dye under optimum conditions and unconjugated antibody and free dye were 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. This will ensure that BD® CompBeads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer should be used anytime BD Horizon Brilliant™ dyes are used in a multicolor flow cytometry panel. Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation. The BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions. When BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer is used in in the multicolor panel, it should also be used in the corresponding compensation controls for all dyes to achieve the most accurate compensation. For the most accurate compensation, compensation controls created with either cells or beads should be exposed to BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer for the same length of time as the corresponding multicolor panel. 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).

5E7

The 5E7 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to mouse B lymphocyte-induced maturation protein 1 (Blimp-1). Blimp-1 is a 98 kDa zinc finger-containing protein that is encoded by the Prdm1 gene and functions as a transcriptional repressor. Blimp-1 is essential for regulating the terminal differentiation of activated B cells into plasma cells. In this process, Blimp-1 suppresses genes involved in B cell proliferation, such as Myc and Bcl6. It controls other genes, such as Xbp1, that are required for upregulating the plasma cell's protein synthesis machinery which is essential for antibody production and secretion. Blimp-1 is an important regulator in other cell types as well. It functions in the regulation of T cell activation and homeostasis and NK cell maturation. Blimp-1 is expressed in activated T cells and can function to inhibit IL-2 production while enhancing the differentiation and expression of several molecules produced by effector T cells.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BUV395 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. With an Ex Max near 348 nm and an Em Max near 395 nm, BD Horizon™ BUV395 can be excited by the ultraviolet laser (355 nm) laser and detected with a 379/28 filter. This dye has been exclusively developed by BD Biosciences as an optimal dye for use on instruments equipped with the ultraviolet laser and has virtually no spillover into any other detector.

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.
