BB515 Mouse Anti-Human CD278
BB515 Mouse Anti-Human CD278

Flow cytometric analysis of CD278 expression on stimulated human peripheral blood lymphocytes. Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells were cultured with Phytohemagglutinin (PHA; Sigma L-1668) for 3 days. The stimulated cells were then stained with either BD Horizon™ BB515 Mouse IgG1 κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 564416; dashed line histogram) or BD Horizon BB515 Mouse Anti-Human CD278 antibody (Cat. No. 564549; solid line histogram). The fluorescence histograms were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable lymphoblasts. Flow cytometric analysis was performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ Cell Analyzer 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™ BB515 under optimum conditions and unconjugated antibody was removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

BD™ CompBeads can be used as surrogates to assess fluorescence spillover (Compensation).  When fluorochrome conjugated antibodies are bound to 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 CompBead to ensure that BD Comp beads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

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).

For optimal results, it is recommended to perform 2 washes after staining with antibodies. Cells may be prepared, stained with antibodies and washed twice with wash buffer per established protocols for immunofluorescence staining, prior to acquisition on a flow cytometer. Performing fewer than the recommended wash steps may lead to increased spread of the negative population.

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. 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.

DX29

The DX29 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to human CD278, which is also known as Inducible Costimulator (ICOS) or Inducible T-cell Costimulator. ICOS is a homodimeric type I transmembrane glycoprotein with an approximate molecular weight of 50-60 kDa. It is a member of the CD28 family and is highly expressed on activated T cells. CD278 is the receptor for ICOS-ligand (also known as, CD275, B7-H2, B7RP-1, or LICOS). Like CD28, ICOS can provide a costimulatory signal for T cell activation, proliferation and cytokine production. It is not expressed on resting or activated B cells, monocytes, NK cells, granulocytes, dendritic cells or platelets. Unlike the constitutively expressed CD28, ICOS is de novo expressed upon cellular activation. Reports describe similarities between CD28 and ICOS in T cell activation, such as the costimulation of cytokine production. However, it has been suggested that ICOS may play a greater role in IL-10 production. In the presence of IL-10, purified recombinant human ICOS protein significantly increased in vitro B cell growth stimulated by pokeweed mitogen (PWM) and enhanced production of IgG.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BB515 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue family of dyes. With an Ex Max near 490 nm and an Em Max near 515 nm, BD Horizon BB515 can be excited by the blue laser (488 nm) laser and detected with a 530/30 nm filter. This dye has been exclusively developed by BD Biosciences and is up to seven times brighter than FITC with less spillover into the PE channel. Due to similar excitation and emission properties, BB515, FITC, and Alexa Fluor® 488 cannot be used simultaneously. It is not recommended to use BB515 in cocktails that include Streptavidin conjugates as it may cause high background.

BB515
The BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue 515 (BB515) dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue family of dyes. This dye is a polymer fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 490-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) of 515-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BB515 is designed to be excited by the blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520-nm (e.g., 530/30-nm). BB515 reagents are significantly brighter than equivalent FITC or Alexa Fluor™ 488 reagents with less spillover into the PE detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
