BV650 Rat Anti-Mouse CD185 (CXCR5)
BV650 Rat Anti-Mouse CD185 (CXCR5)

Two-color flow cytometric analysis of CD185 (CXCR5) expression on mouse splenic leucocytes. Splenic leucocytes were preincubated with Purified Rat Anti-Mouse CD16/CD32 antibody (Mouse BD Fc Block™) (Cat. No. 553141/553142). The cells were then stained with PE Rat Anti-Mouse CD45R/B220 antibody (Cat. No. 553089/553090/561878) and either BD Horizon™ BV650 Rat IgG2a, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 563236; Left Panel) or BD Horizon BV650 Rat Anti-Mouse CD185 (CXCR5) antibody (Cat. No. 563981; Right Panel). Two-color flow cytometric dot plots showing the correlated expression of CD185 (CXCR5) [or Ig Isotype control staining] versus CD45R/B220 were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable splenic leucocytes. Flow cytometric analysis was performed using a BD™ LSR 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 to the dye under optimum conditions that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.

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).

2G8

The 2G8 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the mouse C-X-C Chemokine Receptor type 5, CXCR5. CXCR5 is also known as CD185, BLR1, NLR and MDR15. CXCR5 is a seven-transmembrane, G-protein-coupled receptor that is specific for the CXC chemokine, CXCL13/BLC/BCA-1. The expression of CXCR5 has been detected in spleen, lymph nodes, tonsils, brain, bone marrow, T cells, B cells, cerebrum, cerebellum, hippcampus and pituitary. In mouse spleen, CXCR5 was strictly expressed by mature B cells and a small subset of T lymphocytes. CXCR5 plays a role in directing the migration of B and T cells to B cell follicles with the spleen and certain other lymphoid tissues. The immunogen used to generate 2G8 hybridoma was a recombinant protein containing N-terminal amino acids of mouse CXCR5 (GST-NmBLR1).

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV650 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 with an Ex Max of 405-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 650-nm.  BD Horizon BV650 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in a filter used to detect APC-like dyes (eg, 660/20-nm filter).  Due to the excitation and emission characteristics of the acceptor dye, there will be  spillover into the APC and Alexa Fluor® 700 detectors.  However, the spillover can be corrected through compensation as with any other dye combination.

BV650
The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 650 (BV650) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a BV421 donor with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 406-nm and an acceptor dye with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 649-nm. BV650, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 650-nm (e.g., a 660/20-nm bandpass filter). The acceptor dye can be excited by the Red (628–640-nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
