Alexa Fluor® 488 Rat Anti-Mouse CD146
Alexa Fluor® 488 Rat Anti-Mouse CD146

Multicolor flow cytometric analysis of CD146 expression on C57BL/6 splenocytes. Spleen cells were preincubated with Mouse BD Fc Block™ purified anti-mouse CD16/CD32 mAb 2.4G2 (Cat. No. 553141/553142) and then stained with PE Rat Anti-Mouse CD49b antibody (Cat. No. 561066, Left and Middle Panel) or APC Mouse Anti-Mouse NK-1.1 antibody (Cat. No. 550627/561117. Right Panel) and with either Alexa Fluor® 488 Rat IgG2a, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 557676; Left Panel) or Alexa Fluor® 488 Rat Anti-Mouse CD146 antibody (Cat. No. 562229; Middle and Right Panel). Two-color flow cytometric dot plots showing the correlated expression patterns of CD49b or NK-1.1 versus CD146 (or Ig isotype control staining) were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable splenocytes. Flow cytometry was performed using a BD™ LSR II Flow Cytometer System.

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 to Alexa Fluor® 488 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 488 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. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  4. 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.
  5. Alexa Fluor® 488 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC).
  6. Alexa Fluor® is a registered trademark of Molecular Probes, Inc., Eugene, OR.
  7. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  8. 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.

ME-9F1

The ME-9F1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to mouse CD146. The CD146 adhesion molecule is a type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein and member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. CD146 is expressed by blood vessel endothelial cells and may play roles in forming intercellular junctions between endothelial cells and influencing the transendothelial migration of other cell types. CD146 is also expressed by some melanoma cell lines, NK cells and neutrophils. CD146 is not detectable on mouse monocytes, dendritic cells, T cells, NKT cells, B cells and smooth muscle cells. Increased expression of CD146 is reportedly associated with NK cell maturation and may be used to characterize different functional NK cell subsets. Activated CD146-positive mouse NK cells reportedly are less cytotoxic and secrete less IFN-γ than their CD146-negative counterparts.

Alexa Fluor™ 488
Alexa Fluor™ 488 Dye is part of the BD blue family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 494-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 517-nm. Alexa Fluor™ 488 is designed to be excited by the Blue laser (488 nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520-nm (e.g., a 530/30-nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
