Alexa Fluor™ 647 Mouse Anti-Human CD7
Alexa Fluor™ 647 Mouse Anti-Human CD7
Two-color flow cytometric analysis of CD7 expression on peripheral blood lymphocytes. Whole blood was stained with BD Horizon™ BV421 Mouse Anti-Human CD3 antibody (Cat. No. 562427/562426) and with either Alexa Fluor™ 647 Mouse IgG2a, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 565357; Left Plot) or Alexa Fluor™ 647 Mouse Anti-Human CD7 antibody (Cat. No. 568094/568095; Right Plot). Erythrocytes were lysed with BD Pharm Lyse™ Lysing Buffer (Cat. No. 555899). The bivariate pseudocolor density plot showing the correlated expression of either CD7 [or Ig Isotype control] staining versus CD3 was derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable lymphocytes. Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ Cell Analyzer System and FlowJo™ software.

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 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 cell and CompBead to ensure that BD® CompBeads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

Product Notices

  1. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  2. Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for allophycocyanin (APC).
  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. 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).
  5. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  6. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.

4H9

The 4H9 (Leu-9) monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes human CD7 which is also known as T-cell leukemia antigen, T-cell surface antigen Leu-9, and  LEU-9. CD7 is a ~40 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that has an extracellular region with an N-terminal IgV-like domain followed by an extended O-glycosylated stalk region, a transmembrane region and cytoplasmic tail. The CD7 antigen is expressed throughout T-lymphocyte differentiation. It is present on 85% to 90% of peripheral blood T lymphocytes. In normal individuals, CD7 is expressed on all CD8+ lymphocytes, approximately 90% of CD4+ lymphocytes, and most NK cells. CD7 is weakly expressed on monocytes but not on granulocytes or B lymphocytes. It is expressed on hematopoietic progenitors and 50% of thymocytes. In leukemias, the CD7 antigen is present on the majority of T-lymphoid lineages. CD7 may function in cellular adhesion and play a role in interactions between T cells as well as T cells and B cells.

Alexa Fluor™ 647
Alexa Fluor™ 647 Dye is part of the BD red family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 653-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 669-nm. Alexa Fluor 647 is designed to be excited by the Red laser (627-640 nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520-nm (e.g., a 660/20 nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
