V500 Mouse Anti-Human CD8
V500 Mouse Anti-Human CD8

Flow cytometric analysis of CD8 expression on Rhesus macaque peripheral blood lymphocytes. Rhesus macaque whole blood was stained with BD Horizon™ V500 mouse Anti-Human CD8 antibody (Cat. No. 561618; solid line histogram) or with a BD Horizon™ V500 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 560787; dashed line histogram). The erythrocytes were lysed with BD PharmLyse™ Lysing Buffer (Cat. No. 555899). The fluorescence histograms were derived from 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

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™ V500 under optimum conditions, and unreacted BD Horizon™ V500 was removed.

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.
  4. BD Horizon V500 has a maximum absorption of 415 nm and maximum emission of 500 nm. Before staining with this reagent, please confirm that your flow cytometer is capable of exciting the fluorochrome and discriminating the resulting fluorescence.
  5. Species cross-reactivity detected in product development may not have been confirmed on every format and/or application.
  6. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.

SK1

The SK1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD8 alpha (CD8α). CD8α is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein and a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. CD8α is expressed by the majority of thymocytes, by subpopulations of  αβ T cells and γδ T cells and by some NK cells. Cell surface CD8α is expressed either as a disulfide-linked homodimer (CD8αα) or as a heterodimer (CD8αβ) when disulfide-bonded to a CD8 beta chain (CD8β). CD8-positive αβ T cells coexpress both CD8αα homodimers and CD8αβ heterodimers whereas some γδ T cells and NK cells express CD8αα homodimers.  CD8 plays important roles in T cell activation and selection. The extracellular IgSF domain of CD8α binds to a non-polymorphic determinant on HLA class I molecules (α3 domain) and enables CD8 to function as a co-receptor with MHC class I-restricted TCR during T cell recognition of antigen. The cytoplasmic domain of CD8α associates with Lck, a Src family protein tyrosine kinase that is involved in intracellular signaling.

The antibody is conjugated to BD Horizon V500, 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 with an Ex max of 415 nm and Em Max at 500 nm. BD Horizon V500 conjugates emit at a similar wavelength to Amcyan yet exhibit reduced spillover into the FITC channel. For more information on BD Horizon V500, visit bdbiosciences.com/colors.

    

When compensating dyes in this spectral range (such as BD Horizon V500 and AmCyan), the most accurate compensation can be obtained using single stained cellular controls.  Due to spectral differences between cells and beads  in this channel, using BD™ CompBeads can result in spillover errors for V500 and AmCyan reagents.   Therefore, the use of BD CompBeads or BD CompBeads Plus to determine spillover values for these reagents is not recommended.   Different V500 reagents (e.g. CD4 vs. CD45) can have slightly different fluorescence spillover therefore, it may also be necessary to use clone specific compensation controls when using these reagents.

V500
BD Horizon™ V500 Dye is part of the BD Horizon™ Violet family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 415-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 499-nm. Driven by BD innovation, V500 is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 500 nm (eg, a 525/50 nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
