PE Hamster Anti-Mouse CD103
PE Hamster Anti-Mouse CD103

Two-color flow cytometric analysis of CD103 expression on mouse lymph node cells. Lymph node cells from a C57BL/6 mouse were preincubated with Purified Rat Anti-Mouse CD16/CD32 antibody (Mouse BD Fc Block™) (Cat. No. 553141/553142). The cells were then stained with FITC Hamster Anti-Mouse CD3e antibody (Cat. No. 553061/553062/561827) and either PE Hamster IgG2, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 550085; Left Plot) or PE Rat Anti-Mouse CD103 antibody (Cat. No. 566844; Right Plot) at 1 µg/test. BD Via-Probe™ Cell Viability 7-AAD Solution (Cat. No. 555815/555816) was added to cells right before analysis. Bivariate pseudocolor density plots showing the correlated expression of CD103 (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus CD3e were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable (7-AAD-nrgative) leucocytes. Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD FACSCelesta™ Flow Cytometer 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 with R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were 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. Please refer to http://regdocs.bd.com to access safety data sheets (SDS).
  6. Although hamster immunoglobulin isotypes have not been well defined, BD Biosciences Pharmingen has grouped Armenian and Syrian hamster IgG monoclonal antibodies according to their reactivity with a panel of mouse anti-hamster IgG mAbs.

2E7

The 2E7 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes CD103 which is also known as the α chain of the heterodimeric αIELβ7 (also known as, αEβ7) integrin. CD103 is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is encoded by Itgae (integrin alpha E, epithelial-associated). CD103 has a unique and fairly restricted tissue distribution. It is expressed on almost all intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes (IEL), dendritic epidermal T cells (DEC), subsets of peripheral T cells, and distinct subsets of fetal, neonatal, and adult thymocytes. E-cadherin is the epithelial cell ligand for αIELβ7 integrin. The ordered expression of αIEL during thymocyte development (which occurs under the influence of the thymic epithelium), high level of αIEL expression on peripheral T cells in epithelial tissues (IEL and DEC), and expression of CD103 on a subset of CD8+ lymphocytes responding to allogeneic epithelial cells, suggest that αIELβ7 integrin has a common role in the interactions of T lymphocytes with epithelia during T-cell maturation and effector functions. CD103 is thought to play a role in allograft rejection. The 2E7 antibody recognizes a different epitope than that recognized by the M290 antibody. Ligation of CD103 by 2E7 reportedly induces intracellular signaling activity in a redirected lysis assay and can costimulate anti-TCR antibody-activated IEL and CD8+ T cells. The 2E7 hamster antibody does not crossreact with rat leucocytes.

PE
R-Phycoerythrin (PE), is part of the BD family of Phycobiliprotein dyes. This fluorochrome is a multimeric fluorescent phycobiliprotein with excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 496 nm and 566 nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 576 nm. PE is designed to be excited by the Blue (488 nm), Green (532 nm) and Yellow-Green (561 nm) lasers and detected using an optical filter centered near 575 nm (e.g., a 575/26-nm bandpass filter). As PE is excited by multiple lasers, this can result in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover on instruments with various combinations of Blue, Green, and Yellow-Green lasers. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
