PE Rat anti-Mouse CD197 (CCR7)
PE Rat anti-Mouse CD197 (CCR7)

Flow cytometric analysis of PE conjugated anti-mouse CCR7. Freshly isolated mouse spleen or thymus cells were stained with PE-conjugated anti-mouse CCR7 (Cat. No. 560682), FITC-conjugated anti-mouse CD4 (Cat. No. 553047) and APC-conjugated anti-mouse CD3e (Cat. No. 553066). The left and middle dot plots show staining of the splenocytes while the right dot plot shows staining of the thymocytes.  Flow cytometry was performed on a BD LSR™ II flow cytometry system and the dot plots were derived from the gated events based on light scattering characteristics of viable splenocytes or thymocytes.

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 R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were removed.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. 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.
  3. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  4. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  5. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.

4B12

The monoclonal antibody 4B12/CCR7 reacts with the mouse C-C chemokine receptor type 7 (CCR7). CCR7 is also known as CD197 (previously known as EBI1, Ebi1h and CMKBR7) and plays a central role in mediating homeostatic B and T lymphocyte trafficking to and within secondary lymphoid tissues. CD197 is a seven-transmembrane, G-protein-coupled, 43 kDa glycoprotein receptor that is specific for the CC chemokines, MIP3ß/Exodus-3/ELC/CKb11/Scya19/CCL19 and 6Ckine/Exodus-2/SLC/TCA4/CKb9/Scya21/CCL21. The mouse Ccr7 gene is located on chromosome 11. CD197 (CCR7) is differentially expressed by subsets of thymocytes. Positive CD197 expression appears to be involved in the cortex-to-medulla migration of positively-selected thymocytes wherein they complete functional maturation including the establishment of central tolerance. It is most highly expressed by some mature medullary single-positive thymocytes. CD197 is also expressed by subsets of mature peripheral CD4+ and CD8+ T lymphocytes including naïve and regulatory T cells and central memory T cells. In addition, it is differentially expressed by subsets of B lymphocytes, dendritic cells, and Langerhans cells. CD197 serves as a homing receptor that helps guide these various cell types to and within lymphoid tissues. In this way, CCR7 supports protective immunity while safeguarding self tolerance. Reportedly, the 4B12/CCR7 antibody is not agonistic, is not blocked by CCL21 nor by physiologic levels of CCL19, nor does the antibody block the binding of CCL21 to CCR7. The immunogen used to generate the 4B12 hybridoma was a mouse CCR7-transfected rat cell line.

PE
R-Phycoerythrin (PE), is part of the BD family of Phycobiliprotein dyes. This fluorochrome is a multimeric fluorescent phycobiliprotein with excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 496 nm and 566 nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 576 nm. PE is designed to be excited by the Blue (488 nm), Green (532 nm) and Yellow-Green (561 nm) lasers and detected using an optical filter centered near 575 nm (e.g., a 575/26-nm bandpass filter). As PE is excited by multiple lasers, this can result in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover on instruments with various combinations of Blue, Green, and Yellow-Green lasers. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
