FITC Rat Anti-Mouse Ly-6D
FITC Rat Anti-Mouse Ly-6D

Flow cytometric analysis of Ly-6D expression on BALB/c mouse splenocytes. BALB/c mouse splenocytes were simultaneously stained with FITC Rat Anti-Mouse Ly-6D (Cat. No. 561148, Left Panel) or FITC Rat IgG2c Isotype Control (Cat. No. 560893, Right Panel) and PerCP-Cy™5.5 Anti-Mouse CD3 (Cat. No. 561108) antibodies. A two-color flow cytometric dot plot showing the correlated expression patterns of Ly-6D versus CD3 was derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable splenocytes. Flow cytometry was performed using a BD LSR™ II Flow Cytometer 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 FITC under optimum conditions, and unreacted FITC 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.

49-H4

The 49-H4 antibody specifically binds to the ThB antigen (Ly-6D), a 15-kDa GPI-anchored protein of the Ly-6 Multigene Family. ThB has been detected on cortical thymocytes, small sIg- Thy-1- and sIg+ lymphoid cells in the bone marrow, thymic medullary epithelial cells, all epidermal layers (except the stratum corneum), and on peripheral B lymphocytes (but not peripheral T lymphocytes).  There is strain-to-strain variation in ThB antigen expression on splenic B cells. Strains with the Ly-6.2 haplotype (e.g., AKR, C57BL, DBA/2, SJL, SWR) stain more intensely with anti-ThB reagents than Ly-6.1 strains (e.g., A, BALB/c, CBA, C3H/He, NZB); B cells of Ly-6.1 and Ly-6.2 hybrids stain with intermediate intensity.  The proportion of ThB+ B cells to thymocytes do not differ significantly among strains.

FITC
Fluorescein (FITC) is part of the BD blue family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 494-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 518-nm. FITC is designed to be excited by the Blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520 nm (e.g., a 530/30-nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
