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 BV421 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.

JY/93

The JY/93 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes Lyb-2.2 and Lyb-2.3 (CD72 b and c alloantigens, respectively). CD72 is a 45-kDa type-II membrane protein containing a C-type lectin-like domain, an ITIM and ITIM-like sequence in the cytoplasmic tail. Recently, CD72 has been shown to negatively regulate B-cell receptor signaling. Analysis of CD72-deficient mice supports these results and shows that CD72 is involved in B-cell development. CD72-stimulated B cells show a transient association of CD19 with CD72, as well as an increase in Tyr-phosphorylation of CD19. CD72 is reported to be a ligand for CD5,5 although this is controversial. The CD72 alloantigens Lyb-2.1 (originally identified as Ly-m19.2), Lyb-2.2 (originally identified as Ly-32.2), Lyb-2.3, and Lyb-2.4 are encoded by the Cd72[a], Cd72[b], Cd72[c] , and Cd72[d] alleles, respectively. Lyb-2.2 (CD72b) is expressed on B lymphocytes, a subset of peripheral T cells, activated thymocytes, and activated T lymphocytes in A, BALB/c, CBA/H, CBA/N, C3H/He, C57BL, NZB, NZW, PL, and 129 strains. Moreover, expression of CD72b on T cells is dominant in F1 hybrid mice, and its level of expression increases upon activation. Lyb-2.3 (CD72c) is expressed on B cells of AKR, CE, SJL, and other mouse strains. Although staining of a small percentage of splenic T cells has been detected in CD72c mice, northern blot analysis has shown no expression of CD72c in T lymphocytes of these mice. JY/93 mAb does not stain cells from CD72a mice (e.g., CBA/J, DBA/2, SWR), and it does not stain resting thymocytes, splenic CD11b-positive cells, or NK cells. Five serological specificities of CD72 alloantigens have been described and the nomenclature CD72.1, CD72.2, CD72.3, CD72.4, and CD72.5 proposed.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max at 421-nm, BD Horizon BV421 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the standard Pacific Blue™ filter set (eg, 450/50-nm filter). BD Horizon BV421 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue conjugates.

BV421
The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 421 (BV421) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This polymer-technology based dye has an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 407-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 423-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BV421 is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 420-nm (e.g., a 431/28-nm or 450/50-nm bandpass filter). BV421 is an ideal alternative for V450 as it is approximately ten times brighter with less spillover into the BV510/V500 detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
