Aqueous buffered solution containing ≤0.09% sodium azide.

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 BUV496 under optimal conditions that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.

Recommended Assay Procedures

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes (including BD OptiBuild Brilliant reagents) 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).

Product Notices

  1. This antibody was developed for use in flow cytometry.
  2. 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.
  3. Researchers should determine the optimal concentration of this reagent for their individual applications.
  4. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  5. 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.
  6. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at

The GIR-208 antibody recognizes the extracellular region of CD119 which is also known as the alpha chain subunit (80-95 kDa glycoprotein) of the human interferon-γ receptor (IFN-γRα).  The functionally active-form of the human IFN-γ receptor consists of two (or more) subunits, with IFN-γRα responsible for IFN-γ binding and both the IFN-γRα and β chains required for the transduction of biologic responses.  The IFN-γ receptor α chain (CD119) is expressed on the surface of most human cells (except mature erythrocytes) including monocytes, macrophages, T cells, B cells, NK cells, neutrophils, fibroblasts, epithelial cells, and endothelium.  Binding of 125I-labeled GIR-208 antibody to IFN-γRα+ cells is reported to be specifically inhibited in the presence of excess IFN-γ.  GIR-208 does not cross react with IFN-γ as tested by ELISA. The ability of this antibody to bind to IFN-γ receptors of species other than human has not been determined. The immunogen used to generate this hybridoma was human IFN-γRα purified from human placenta.  The GIR- 208 has been reported to block the binding of 125I-human IFN-γ to IFN-γRα+ cells as well as purified, soluble human IFN-γRα. GIR-208 is a neutralizing antibody that has been shown to neutralize the anti-viral activity of IFN-γ on WISH cells in a dose-dependent fashion.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BUV496 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BUV395 with an Ex Max of 348-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 496-nm. BD Horizon BUV496 can be excited by the ultraviolet laser (355 nm) and detected with a 515/30 nm filter with a 450LP. Due to the excitation of the acceptor dye by other laser lines, there may be significant spillover into the channel detecting BD Horizon V500 or BV510 (eg, 525/40-nm filter). However, the spillover can be corrected through compensation as with any other dye combination.

The BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet 496 (BUV496) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a BUV395 donor with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 350-nm and an acceptor dye with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 496-nm. BUV496, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the ultraviolet laser (355-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 500-nm (e.g., 515/30-nm bandpass filter). The acceptor dye can be excited by the Violet (405-nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
