Purified Mouse Anti-Human CD197 (CCR7)

Detection of CCR7 expression on CD4 and CD8-positive human peripheral lymphocytes by purified anti-human CCR7 antibody 2H4 (Cat. No. 550937). Human PBMC were stained with 4.0 µg/10e6 of purified 2H4 using 3-step staining protocol outlined below and anti-human CD45RA-FITC (Cat. No. 555488). The data shown are derived from the CD4- positive (based on staining with anti-human CD4-APC, Cat. No. 555349, left panel) and CD8- positive (based on staining with anti-human CD8-APC, Cat. No. 555369, right panel) lymphocyte gated populations and displayed as bivariate dot plots. Cells were analyzed with a FACScan™ Flow Cytometer (BD Biosciences, San Jose, CA)

Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. Store undiluted at 4°C.

Recommended Assay Procedures

Chemokine receptors are know to internalize during manipulation resulting in low frequency expression. Immunophenotyping studies of chemokine receptors need to be performed on freshly collected whole blood (<24 Hrs). Incubation with the antibody should be done in the dark. Cellular manipulation, such as Ficoll separation, freezing, or exposure to cold temperatures prior to staining have been shown to cause a decrease in staining intensity and inconsistent results.

The purified 2H4 antibody can be used for the immunofluorescent staining and flow cytometric analyses of human leukocytes and cell lines that express CCR7 (see Figure). A multistep step staining procedure is recommended to amplify immunofluorescent signals for the flow cytometric analysis of human CCR7 expression:

Step 1: Incubate 10e6 cells with 2 - 4 µg of purified 2H4 antibody at 4°C for 15 - 20 minutes. Wash cells two times with staining medium containing sodium azide (e.g., Dulbecco's PBS or tissue culture medium [without phenol red and biotin] with 0.09% sodium azide and 2% heat-inactivated FCS or 0.2% BSA).

Step 2: Incubate the cells with 0.25 µg of biotinylated rat anti-mouse IgM (Cat. No. 553406) at 4°C for 20 minutes. Wash cells two times.

Step 3: Incubate the cells with ≤ 0.06 µg of streptavidin-phycoerythrin (Cat. No. 554061) at 4°C for 20 minutes. Wash two times. Resuspend cells in staining medium and analyze by flow cytometry using appropriate specificity and compensation controls.

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.

2H4

The monoclonal antibody 2H4 reacts with the human CC chemokine receptor, CCR7/CD197. CCR7 (previously known as BLR-2, EBI-1 and CMKBR7), a seven-transmembrane, G-protein-coupled receptor, is the specific receptor for CC chemokines, MIP-3•/Exodus 3/ELC/CCL19 and 6Ckine/Exodus 2/SLC/TCA4/CCL214. It has been shown that CCR7 mRNA is expressed mainly in lymphoid tissues including spleen, lymph nodes and tonsil. CCR7 mRNA was also detected in peripheral T- and B-lymphocytes, in BM and cord blood CD34-positive cells and mature dendritic cells. The human CCR7 gene, unlike other CC chemokine receptor genes, has been mapped to chromosome 17q12. The immunogen used to generate 2H4 hybridoma was human CCR7 transfected L1.2 mouse lymphoma cells. This antibody is not a neutralizing antibody.

This antibody is routinely tested by flow cytometric analysis. Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

Purified
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
