Preparation And Storage

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

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  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.

OX-86

The OX-86 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the OX-40 antigen (CD134), also known as OX-40L receptor. CD134 is a 50-kDa type-I membrane glycoprotein that belongs to the NGFR/TNFR superfamily. Mouse CD134 is expressed on activated CD4+ and CD8+ T lymphocytes and has been shown to be the sole receptor for the OX-40 Ligand (OX-40L). In the brains of mice with actively induced experimental allergic encephalomyelitis, the expression of CD134 on CD4+ T lymphocytes correlates with disease progression. The OX-40/OX-40L system supplies a costimulatory signal for T-cell proliferation and B-cell proliferation and differentiation. In addition, OX-40 antigen provides a costimulatory signal that induces T cells to proliferate in a CD28-independent manner. In the intact animal, CD134 does not appear to be essential for many T-cell responses, but it seems to play a major role in the pathogenesis of some autoimmune diseases. The OX-86 mAb stains both CD4+ and CD8+ activated T cells, and this expression pattern has been confirmed using OX-40L-Ig fusion protein. CD134 was also detected, using OX-86 mAb, on B cells after stimulation with anti-IgM plus anti-CD40 mAb HM40-3 (Cat. no. 553721). OX-86 mAb does not block binding of OX-40L to OX-40, and it stimulates T-cell proliferation mildly.

Biotin
Biotin is a ubiquitous co-factor (also known as Vitamin B7) that has many properties that make it extremely useful for molecular biology. Biotin has an extremely high affinity for the Avidin family of proteins (Kd = 10-15 M), making it the perfect tool to link two molecules. Biotin labeled antibodies can be combined with any number of Avidin-conjugated probes in order to customize an assay to a particular need. This is especially useful in the case of magnetic cell separation using streptavidin/magnetic bead conjugates, or in the case of flow cytometry using streptavidin/fluorophore conjugates.
