V450 Mouse Anti-Human IgM
V450 Mouse Anti-Human IgM

Flow cytometric analysis of IgM expression on human peripheral blood lymphocytes. Human PBMCs were incubated in complete medium overnight in order to minimize subsequent nonspecific immunofluorescent staining. The cells were harvested and stained with BD Horizon™ V450 Mouse Anti-Human IgM (Cat. No. 561286) and APC-H7 Mouse anti-Human CD19 (Cat. No. 560727) antibodies. A two-color flow cytometric dot plot showing the correlated expression of cell surface IgM versus CD19 was derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable lymphocytes. Flow cytometry was performed using a BD™ LSR II Flow Cytometer System.

Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with BD Horizon™ V450 under optimum conditions, and unreacted BD Horizon™ V450 was removed. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

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. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  4. 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.
  5. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  6. BD Horizon V450 has a maximum absorption of 406 nm and maximum emission of 450 nm. Before staining with this reagent, please confirm that your flow cytometer is capable of exciting the fluorochrome and discriminating the resulting fluorescence.

G20-127

IgM is an important component in the first line of defense against foreign pathogens, but may also play a role in autoimmune diseases.  IgM monomers consist of two light and two heavy chains.  Unlike the heavy chain of an IgG antibody which contains 3 constant Ig domains, the µ heavy chain of IgM contains 4 constant Ig domains.  Five IgM monomers complex with a small polypeptide (J-chain) to form pentameric IgM that can be found in human plasma.  In an immune response, the binding of IgM to a cell surface antigen enables C1q to activate interactions with downstream components in the classical complement pathway.  Mature B lymphocytes express IgM.  The G20-127 monoclonal antibody binds to the heavy chain of human IgM. The G20-127 antibody is not thought to react with other immunoglobulin heavy chain isotypes.

The antibody is conjugated to BD Horizon™ V450, which has been developed for use in multicolor flow cytometry experiments and is available exclusively from BD Biosciences. It is excited by the Violet laser Ex max of 406 nm and has an Em Max at 450 nm. Conjugates with BD Horizon™ V450 can be used in place of Pacific Blue™ conjugates.

V450
BD Horizon™ V450 Dye is part of the BD Horizon™ violet family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 405-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 450-nm. BD Horizon™ V450, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405 nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 450-nm (e.g., a 450/50-nm bandpass filter). The dye can be excited by the UV (355-nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and spillover. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
