The CD55 antibody, clone IA10, is derived from the fusion of X63Ag8.653 myeloma cells with spleen cells from BALB/c mice immunized with purified DAF.

The CD55 antibody reacts with decay-accelerating factor (DAF), a GPI-anchored single chain glycoprotein of approximately 70 kilodaltons (kDa). It has been suggested that the role of DAF is to protect cells from damage by autologous complement preventing the amplification steps of the complement cascade by interfering with the assembly of the C3 and the C5 convertases. The complement components in the formation of C3 convertases include: C4b2a (classical pathway) and C3bBb (alternative pathway). In the formation of C5 convertases, the complement components include: C4b2a3b (classical pathway) and C3bBb3b (alternative pathway).

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.
