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 R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

To minimize non-specific staining via Fc receptors, Mouse BD Fc Block™ (Cat. No. 553141/553142) is recommended.

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.

R3-242

The R3-242 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to aminopeptidase N (APN), which has been reported to be the mouse CD13 homologue. APN is expressed in a variety of mammalian tissues, including intestinal and renal epithelial brush border, endothelium, liver, lung, and brain. In lymphoid tissues, R3-242 mAb is reported to detect APN on monocytes, macrophages, mast cells, dendritic cells, and B lymphocytes, but not on T cells, and thymocytes. However, the reported reactivity with B cells may be non-specific, via binding to the Fcγ receptors (CD16/CD32). This observation is in agreement with reports using different antibodies to mouse APN. APN may play a role in antigen presentation in the immune system. R3-242 mAb does not inhibit the enzymatic activity of APN.

PE
R-Phycoerythrin (PE), is part of the BD family of Phycobiliprotein dyes. This fluorochrome is a multimeric fluorescent phycobiliprotein with excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 496 nm and 566 nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 576 nm. PE is designed to be excited by the Blue (488 nm), Green (532 nm) and Yellow-Green (561 nm) lasers and detected using an optical filter centered near 575 nm (e.g., a 575/26-nm bandpass filter). As PE is excited by multiple lasers, this can result in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover on instruments with various combinations of Blue, Green, and Yellow-Green lasers. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
