BV421 Rat Anti-Mouse CD1d
BV421 Rat Anti-Mouse CD1d

Flow cytometric analysis of CD1d expression on mouse thymocytes.   Thymocytes from BALB/c mice were stained with either BD Horizon™ BV421 Rat IgG2b, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 562603, dashed line histogram) or with the BD Horizon™ BV421 Rat Anti-Mouse CD1d antibody (Cat. No. 562712, solid line histogram). The fluorescence histograms were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable thymocytes. Flow cytometry 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 BV421 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon BV421 were removed.

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.

1B1

The 1B1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to mouse CD1d, a 48-kDa glycoprotein with structural homology to major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecules. The structure, expression, and functions of CD1 antigens are complex and have been reviewed. MAb 1B1 detects CD1d at varying levels on most types of bone marrow and peripheral leukocytes and on epithelial, dendritic, and lymphoid cells in the thymus. It appears to recognize CD1d only in association with β2m. CD1d has been reported to be expressed by gastrointestinal tract epithelium and in the cytoplasm of hepatocytes via immunohistochemical staining of frozen sections with mAb 3C11 (Cat. No. 559871, for the purified antibody), suggesting a possible role for CD1d in mucosal immunity. However, CD1d expression was not detectable via flow cytometry on intestinal epithelial cells in studies using the anti-CD1d mAbs 3C11, 1B1, and 9C7. The 1B1 antibody competes with mAb 3C11 in binding to mouse splenocytes.  

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon™ Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max at 421-nm, BD Horizon™ BV421 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the standard Pacific Blue™ filter set (eg, 450/50-nm filter). BD Horizon™ BV421 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue™ conjugates.

BV421
The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 421 (BV421) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This polymer-technology based dye has an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 407-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 423-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BV421 is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 420-nm (e.g., a 431/28-nm or 450/50-nm bandpass filter). BV421 is an ideal alternative for V450 as it is approximately ten times brighter with less spillover into the BV510/V500 detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
