Pacific Blue™ Mouse Anti-Human CD3
Pacific Blue™ Mouse Anti-Human CD3

Flow cytometric analysis of CD3 expression on human peripheral blood lymphocytes. Whole blood was stained with either Pacific Blue™ Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 558120; dashed line histogram) or Pacific Blue™ Mouse Anti-Human CD3 (Cat. No. 558117; solid line histogram). Erythrocytes were lysed with Lysing Buffer (Cat. No. 555899). Fluorescence histograms were derived from events with the forward and side light-scattering characteristics of viable lymphocytes.

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 is conjugated to Pacific Blue™ under optimum conditions, and unreacted Pacific Blue™ was removed.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  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.
  4. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  5. The Alexa Fluor®, Pacific Blue™, and Cascade Blue® dye antibody conjugates in this product are sold under license from Molecular Probes, Inc. for research use only, excluding use in combination with microarrays, or as analyte specific reagents. The Alexa Fluor® dyes (except for Alexa Fluor® 430), Pacific Blue™ dye, and Cascade Blue® dye are covered by pending and issued patents.
  6. Pacific Blue™ has a maximum absorption of 416 nm and maximum emission of 451 nm. Before staining with this reagent, please confirm that your flow cytometer is capable of exciting the fluorochrome and discriminating the resulting fluorescence.

UCHT1

The UCHT1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the human CD3ε-chain, a 20-kDa subunit of the CD3/T cell antigen receptor complex. CD3ε is expressed on 70-80% of normal human peripheral blood lymphocytes and 60-85% of thymocytes. Studies from the HLDA Workshop show that this antibody is mitogenic for CD3ε-positive cells when used in conjunction with costimulatory agents such as pokeweed mitogen or anti-CD28 antibody. CD3 plays a central role in signal transduction during antigen recognition.  The UCHT1 antibody stains both surface and intracellular CD3ε unlike the other CD3 clone, HIT3a, that stains only extracellular CD3ε.

Pacific Blue
Pacific Blue™ is part of the BD violet family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 404-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 455-nm. Pacific Blue is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 450-nm (e.g., a 450/50-nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
