Biotin Mouse Anti-Rat CD3

Flow cytometric analysis of CD3e expression in rat spleen and thymus. LEW splenocytes (left panels) were simultaneously stained with PE Mouse Anti-Rat CD4 (Cat. No. 554838), PE Mouse Anti-Rat CD8a (Cat. No. 559976/554857) and Biotin Mouse Anti-Rat CD3 (Cat. No. 554831, bottom left panel) monoclonal antibodies, followed by Avidin FITC (Cat. No. 554057). Please note that CD3-CD4+ monocytes and CD3-CD8a+ NK cells may be found in the rat spleen. LEW thymocytes (right panels) were stained with either Biotin Mouse IgG3, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 559805; top right panel) or Biotin Mouse Anti-Rat CD3 (bottom right panel), followed by Avidin FITC. The fluorescence contour plots/histograms were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scattering characteristics of viable cells. Flow cytometry was performed on a BD FACScan™.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with biotin under optimum conditions, and unreacted biotin was 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.
  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.

G4.18

The G4.18 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes the T-cell receptor-associated CD3 cell-surface antigen found on thymocytes, peripheral T lymphocytes, and dendritic epidermal T cells. It has been reported that CD3 expression is down-regulated within 24 hours in concanavalin A-stimulated rat T cells, and soluble mAb inhibits the allogeneic mixed-lymphocyte proliferative response and cell-mediated cytotoxicity to allogeneic target cells. In vivo treatment with G4.18 mAb prevents cardiac and skin allograft rejection, resulting in donor-specific tolerance. Pre-incubation of splenocytes with the alternate anti-rat CD3 monoclonal antibody, 1F4, blocks staining with mAb G4.18.

Biotin
Biotin is a ubiquitous co-factor (also known as Vitamin B7) that has many properties that make it extremely useful for molecular biology. Biotin has an extremely high affinity for the Avidin family of proteins (Kd = 10-15 M), making it the perfect tool to link two molecules. Biotin labeled antibodies can be combined with any number of Avidin-conjugated probes in order to customize an assay to a particular need. This is especially useful in the case of magnetic cell separation using streptavidin/magnetic bead conjugates, or in the case of flow cytometry using streptavidin/fluorophore conjugates.
