The 25-9-17 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes the β chain of the I-A[b] MHC class II alloantigen. It crossreacts with cells from mice of the H-2[d], H-2[p], and H-2[q] haplotypes. Reactivity with other haplotypes (eg, a, f, g7, k, r, s) has not been observed. The strain distribution of the antigen recognized by this reagent is similar or identical to that of anti-I-A[d] (Aβ[d]) mAb 34-5-3.
This antibody is conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV605 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max of 602-nm, BD Horizon BV605 can be excited by a violet laser and detected with a standard 610/20-nm filter set. BD Horizon BV605 is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 and an acceptor dye with an Em max at 605-nm. Due to the excitation of the acceptor dye by the green (532 nm) and yellow-green (561 nm) lasers, there will be significant spillover into the PE and BD Horizon PE-CF594 detectors off the green or yellow-green lasers. BD Horizon BV605 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting brightness equivalent to PE conjugates and can be used as a third color off of the violet laser.
