The HIB22 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD22. CD22 is a 130-140 kDa glycosylated type I integral membrane protein present on the surface of mature B cells. CD22 is expressed in the cytoplasm of virtually all B cells except plasma cells. CD45RO antigen on T cells and CD75 antigen on B cells have been identified as ligands for CD22. CD22 has been reported to participate in B-cell activation and also as an adhesion molecule. Although the immunobiology of this antigen has not been fully elucidated, reports indicate that ligation of CD22 induces constitutive internalization of the molecule followed by complete degradation.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BUV395 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. This dye has been exclusively developed by BD Biosciences to have minimal spillover into other detectors, making it an optimal choice for multicolor flow cytometry. With an Ex Max at 348 nm and an Em Max at 395 nm, BD Horizon BUV395 can be excited with a 355 nm laser and detected with a 379/28 filter.
