BD Pharmingen™
Mouse (QC Testing)
Rat WI, also known as Wistar (outbred) IgG2a, κ
BCB10 mouse pre-B cell line
Flow cytometry (Routinely Tested)
0.2 mg/ml
Aqueous buffered solution containing ≤0.09% sodium azide.

Preparation And Storage

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. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

Recommended Assay Procedures

We recommend the use of Mouse Fc Block™ (anti-mouse CD16/CD32, mAb 2.4G2, Cat. No. 553141/553142) to reduce non-specific staining.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to 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.

The KY/8.2 mAb reacts with mouse syndecan-4, a cell-surface heparan sulfate proteoglycan. Although the ligand(s) for this molecule is unknown, syndecans are known to interact with the heparin-binding domain of growth factors, chemokines, and extracellular matrix components. Accordingly, heparin inhibits the binding of syndecan-4 to the pre-B cell line BC7.12. Syndecan-4 is localized to focal adhesions and binds protein-kinase Cα. Thus, it is involved in cytoskeletal organization and signaling. Syndecan-4 is expressed on stromal cells and B-lymphocyte precursors in bone marrow, in addition to most splenic B cells and a small population of T lymphocytes. It is highly expressed on activated B lymphocytes, but is downregulated in isotype-switched memory B cells. The ectodomain of syndecan-4 is shed from cell surfaces constitutively and in response to specific physiological signals, and the resulting soluble fragments are functional. Immobilized KY/8.2 mAb induced the formation of dendritic  processes on syndecan-4-transfected cells and on anti-CD40-activated splenic B cells. Other methods of activating B cells have not produced the same effect. This antibody recognizes an epitope in the N-terminus of syndecan-4, regardless of post-translational modifications.

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.
