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 that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.

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 to ensure that BD® CompBeads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

Product Notices

  1. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  2. Please observe the following precautions: Absorption of visible light can significantly alter the energy transfer occurring in any tandem fluorochrome conjugate; therefore, we recommend that special precautions be taken (such as wrapping vials, tubes, or racks in aluminum foil) to prevent exposure of conjugated reagents, including cells stained with those reagents, to room illumination.
  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
  5. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  6. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  7. The production process underwent stringent testing and validation to assure that it generates a high-quality conjugate with consistent performance and specific binding activity. However, verification testing has not been performed on all conjugate lots.
  8. Researchers should determine the optimal concentration of this reagent for their individual applications.

The APB5 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes CD140b, the Platelet-Derived Growth Factor Receptor beta chain (PDGFRβ). CD140b is a single-pass type I transmembrane glycoprotein that contains an intracellular tyrosine kinase domain. This receptor is encoded by Pdgfrb and is widely expressed on cells within embryonic tissues and cells of mesenchymal origin in the adult mouse including fibroblasts and vascular smooth muscle cells. CD140b forms homodimers or heterodimeric receptor complexes with CD140a (PDGFRα) upon binding various dimeric Platelet-Derived Growth Factors (PDGF) isoforms that lead to receptor activation. Upon activation, CD140b is autophosphorylated at multiple tyrosine sites and, in turn, initiates several signaling cascades by binding and activation of cytoplasmic SH2 domain-containing signal transduction molecules, such as GRB2, Src, GAP, PI3 kinase, PLCγ, and NCK. These signaling pathways regulate cellular growth and proliferation, survival, differentiation, and migration involved in the development of embryonic tissues, blood vessel formation, wound healing, and in a range of diseases including fibrotic conditions, atherosclerosis, and malignancies.

The BD Horizon RealBlue™ 780 (RB780) Dye is part of the BD family of blue dyes. It is a tandem fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 498-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 781-nm. Driven by BD innovation, RB780 can be used on both spectral and conventional cytometers and is designed to be excited by the Blue laser (488-nm) with minimal excitation by the 561-nm Yellow-Green laser. For conventional instruments equipped with a Blue laser (488-nm), RB780 can be used as an alternative to PE-Cy7 and we recommend using an optical filter centered near 780-nm (eg, a 780/60-nm bandpass filter). For spectral instruments equipped with a Blue laser (488-nm), it can be used in conjunction with PE-Cy7. RB780 is on average brighter than PE-Cy7 and has minimal spillover into Yellow-Green detectors.
