Alexa Fluor® 700 Rat anti-Mouse Ly-6G and Ly-6C
Two-parameter analysis of the expression of Ly-6G and/or Ly-6C on bone-marrow myeloid cells.  C57BL/6 bone-marrow leukocytes were stained with either Alexa Fluor® 700-conjugated Rat IgG2b, k isotype control mAb A95-1 (Cat. no. 557964, Panel A) or Alexa Fluor® 700-conjugated mAb RB6-8C5 (Panel B) in the presence of Mouse BD Fc Block™ purified anti-mouse CD16/CD32 mAb 2.4G2 (Cat. no. 553141/553142).  Please note that the population of cells having the lowest SSC (erythroid and lymphoid cells) shows little expression of Ly-6G/Ly-6C, while most of the leukocytes with moderate-to-high SSC (myeloid cells) are Ly-6G/Ly-6C-positive.  Flow cytometry was performed on a BD™ LSR II flow cytometry system.

Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 700 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 700 was removed. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

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. Alexa Fluor® 700 has an adsorption maximum of ~700nm and a peak fluorescence emission of ~720nm. Before staining cells with this reagent, please confirm that your flow cytometer is capable of exciting the fluorochrome and discriminating the resulting fluorescence.
  4. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  5. 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.

RB6-8C5

The RB6-8C5 monoclonal antibody recognizes a common epitope on Ly-6G and Ly-6C, previously known as the myeloid differentiation antigen Gr-1. In the bone marrow, the level of antigen expression is directly correlated with granulocyte differentiation and maturation. The antigen is also expressed on the monocyte lineage in the bone marrow, but not on erythroid cells. In the periphery, RB6-8C5 antibody recognizes granulocytes (neutrophils and eosinophils) and monocytes. The RB6-8C5 antibody is a component of the "lineage cocktail" used in studies of hematopoietic cell lineages. The 1A8 antibody (Cat. No. 551461) specifically recognizes Ly-6G, but not Ly-6C.

Based on comparison of the staining patterns given by 1A8 versus RB6-8C5 antibodies on total blood leucocytes, it is evident that the 1A8 antibody stains the RB6-8C5-bright population, corresponding to Ly-6G-expressing granulocytes; whereas, the RB6-8C5-dim population is 1A8-negative and corresponds to Ly-6C-expressing lymphocytes and monocytes. Please refer to the Technical Data Sheets for Cat. No. 551459 and 553128 for more detailed information.

Alexa Fluor™ 700
Alexa Fluor™ 700 dye is part of the BD red family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 697 nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 719-nm. Alexa Fluor™ 700 is designed to be excited by the Red (627–640-nm) laser and detected using an optical filter centered near 720-nm (e.g., a 720/40-nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
