R718 Mouse Anti-Human IL-3Rα (CD123)
R718 Mouse Anti-Human IL-3Rα (CD123)

Multiparameter flow cytometric analysis of IL-3Rα (CD123) expression on human peripheral blood leucocyte populations. Human whole blood was stained with FITC Mouse Anti-Human CD45RO (Cat No. 555492/561887; Lower Plots) and with either BD Horizon™ R718 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat No. 566928, Left Plots) or BD Horizon™ R718 Mouse Anti-Human IL-3Rα (CD123) (Cat No. 567287/567288; Right Plots). Erythrocytes were lysed with BD FACS™ Lysing Solution (Cat No. 349202). Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ Cell Analyzer System and FlowJo™ software.

Upper Plots: Two-parameter pseudocolor density plots showing the correlated expression of IL-3Rα (CD123) [or Ig Isotype control staining] versus side light-scatter (SSC-A) signals were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact human leucocytes.

Lower Plots: Two-parameter pseudocolor density plots showing the correlated expression of IL-3Rα (CD123) [or Ig Isotype control staining] versus CD45RO were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact human lymphocytes.

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 to the dye under optimum conditions and unreacted dye was removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

BD™ CompBeads can be used as surrogates to assess fluorescence spillover (Compensation). When fluorochrome conjugated antibodies are bound to BD™ CompBeads, they have spectral properties very similar to cells. However, for some fluorochromes there can be small differences in spectral emissions compared to cells, resulting in spillover values that differ when compared to biological controls. It is strongly recommended that when using a reagent for the first time, users compare the spillover on cells and BD CompBeads to ensure that BD™ CompBeads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

Product Notices

  1. This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
  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.

6H6

The 6H6 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes the Interleukin-3 receptor alpha chain (IL-3Ra) which is also known as CD123. IL-3Ra (CD123) is a ~70 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is encoded by IL3RA (interleukin 3 receptor subunit alpha) which belongs to the type I cytokine receptor family within the immunoglobulin gene superfamily. This receptor chain consists of an extracellular region that contains an immunoglobulin-like N-terminal domain (NTD) with a fibronectin type III (FnIII) fold followed by two more FnIII domains that form the cytokine receptor module (CRM), a transmembrane region, and an intracellular tail. IL-3Ra (CD123) binds IL-3 specifically and with low affinity. IL-3Ra (CD123) forms a high-affinity signaling receptor for IL-3 (IL-3R) with the ß common chain (ßc; also known as, CD131) that is shared with the heterodimeric IL-5 and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) receptors. IL-3Ra (CD123) is variably expressed on certain hematopoietic progenitor cells, basophils, eosinophils, mast cells, monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, megakaryocytes, and on some B cells, endothelial cells, and leukemia cells. Bound IL-3 can signal through IL-3R to promote the activation, proliferation, differentiation, and viability of these cells. Amongst monoclonal antibodies specific for human IL-3Ra (CD123), the 6H6 and 9F5 antibodies do not block IL-3 binding to the IL-3R whereas the 7G3 antibody does block IL-3 binding to its receptor in a dose-dependent manner.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ Red 718, which has been developed exclusively by for BD Biosciences as a better alternative to Alexa Fluor™ 700. BD Horizon™ Red 718 can be excited by the red laser (628 - 640 nm) and, with an Em Max around 718 nm, it can be detected using a 730/45 nm filter. Due to similar excitation and emission properties, we do not recommend using R718 in combination with APC-R700 or Alexa Fluor™ 700

R718
The BD Horizon™ Red 718 (R718) Dye is part of the BD red family of dyes. It is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 695-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 718-nm. Driven by BD innovation, R718 is designed to be excited by the red laser (627–640-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 720-nm (e.g., a 720/40-nm bandpass filter). R718 is a brighter alternative to Alexa Fluor™ 700. R718 is also a bright small molecule alternative to APC-R700 with lower spread into the APC detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
