BV421 Hamster Anti-Mouse CD3e
BV421 Hamster Anti-Mouse CD3e

Two-color flow cytometric analysis of CD3e expressed on mouse splenocytes. BALB/c splenocytes were stained with APC Rat Anti-Mouse CD4 (Cat. No. 553051) and APC Rat Anti-Mouse CD8a (Cat. No. 561093/553035) and either BD Horizon™ BV421 Armenian Hamster IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 562601; Left Panel) or BD Horizon™ BV421 Hamster Anti-Mouse CD3e antibody (Cat. No. 562600; Right Panel). The two-color flow cytometric dot plots showing CD3 (or Ig Isotype Control staining) versus CD4 and CD8 were derived from events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable splenocytes. Flow cytometry was performed using a BD FACSCanto™ 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 BV421 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon BV421 were removed.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  3. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.

145-2C11

The 145-2C11 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the 25-kDa ε chain of the T-cell receptor-associated CD3 complex that is expressed on thymocytes, mature T lymphocytes, and NK-T cells. The cytoplasmic domain of CD3e participates in the signal transduction events that activate several cellular biochemical pathways as a result of antigen recognition. Soluble 145-2C11 antibody can activate either unprimed (naive) or primed (memory/preactivated) T cells in vivo or in vitro, in the presence of Fc receptor-bearing accessory cells.  In contrast, plate-bound 145-2C11 can activate T cells in the absence of accessory cells. Soluble 145-2C11 antibody has been reported to induce re-directed lysis of Fc receptor-bearing target cells by CTL clones and can also block lysis of specific target cells by antigen-specific CTL's. Under some conditions, T-cell activation by 145-2C11 antibody has been reported to result in apoptotic cell death. The 145-2C11 antibody does not cross-react with rat leukocytes. Preincubation of thymus cell suspensions at 37°C for 2-4 hours prior to staining reportedly enhances the ability of anti-CD3ε and anti-αβ TCR mAbs to detect the T-cell receptor on immature thymocytes.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon™ Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes.  With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max at 421-nm, BD Horizon™ BV421  can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the standard Pacific Blue™ filter set (eg, 450/50-nm filter). BD Horizon™ BV421  conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue™ conjugates..

BV421
The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 421 (BV421) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This polymer-technology based dye has an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 407-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 423-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BV421 is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 420-nm (e.g., a 431/28-nm or 450/50-nm bandpass filter). BV421 is an ideal alternative for V450 as it is approximately ten times brighter with less spillover into the BV510/V500 detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
