FITC Mouse Anti-Rat CD6

Two-color evaluation of splenic T lymphocytes. LEW splenocytes were simultaneously stained with PE-conjugated anti-rat CD3 mAb G4.18 (Cat. No. 554833) and FITC-conjugated mAb OX-52 (right panel). Flow cytometry was performed on a BD FACScan™ flow cytometry system.

Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with FITC under optimum conditions, and unreacted FITC was removed. 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-52

The OX-52 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes CD6, a 95-120–kDa antigen expressed on T lymphocytes and thymocytes expressing αβ and γδ Tcell receptors. Rat NK cells express low levels of CD6 and are CD8a+, CD8b-, CD5-, and CD3-. In immunoprecipitation experiments, CD6 has been shown to co-precipitate with CD5 and to play a key role in CD5 tyrosine phosphorylation.

FITC
Fluorescein (FITC) is part of the BD blue family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 494-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 518-nm. FITC is designed to be excited by the Blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520 nm (e.g., a 530/30-nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
