BV421 Mouse Anti-Human CD11c
BV421 Mouse Anti-Human CD11c

Multiparameter flow cytometric analysis of CD11c expression on human peripheral blood leucocytes. Whole blood was stained with either BD Horizon™ BV421 Isotype Control (Cat. No. 562438; Left Plot) or BD Horizon BV421 Mouse Anti-Human CD11c antibody (Cat. No. 566877; Right Plot) at 0.5 µg/test. Erythrocytes were lysed with BD FACS Lysing Solution (Cat. No. 349202). The bivariate pseudocolor density plot showing the correlated expression of CD11c (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus side-light scatter (SSC-A) signals was derived from gated events with the forward and side-light scatter characteristics of intact leucocyte populations. Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ Cell Analyzer System and FlowJo™ software. Data shown on this Technical Data Sheet are not lot specific.

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 unconjugated antibody and free dye were 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 cells and CompBead to ensure that BD Comp beads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes are used in the same experiment.  Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation.  The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions.  More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794/566349) or the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer Plus (Cat. No. 566385).

BU15

The BU15 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD11c, which is also known as Integrin alpha X (αX Integrin) or p150,95 Integrin alpha chain. CD11c is a ~150 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is encoded by ITGAX (Integrin subunit alpha X) which belongs to the integrin alpha chain family. It is variably expressed on monocytes, macrophages, granulocytes, NK cells, dendritic cells, and subsets of B and T cells. CD11c associates with CD18 (Integrin beta 2/β2 Integrin) to form the heterodimeric CD11c:CD18 complex, which is also known as p150,95 Integrin, or the Type 4 Complement Receptor (CR4). CD11c:CD18 binds to fibrinogen, iC3b, ICAM-1 (CD54), or lipopolysaccharide (LPS). CD11c:CD18 functions as an adhesion molecule that mediates cellular binding to ligands expressed on stimulated cells including epithelium and endothelium found during inflammation.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max near 407 nm and Em Max near 421 nm, BD Horizon BV421 can be excited by the violet laser (405 nm) and detected with a 450/50 nm filter. BD Horizon BV421 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific BlueTM conjugates. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, BD Horizon BV421, Pacific Blue, and BD Horizon V450 cannot be used simultaneously.

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.
