BB700 Hamster Anti-Mouse CD28
BB700 Hamster Anti-Mouse CD28
Multicolor flow cytometric analysis of CD28 expression on C57BL/6 mouse splenocytes. Splenic leucocytes were pre-incubated with Purified Rat Anti-Mouse CD16/CD32 antibody (Mouse BD Fc Block™) (Cat. No. 553141/553142). The cells were then stained simultaneously with FITC Rat Anti-Mouse CD4 (Cat. No. 553046/553047/561835) and FITC Rat Anti-Mouse CD8 (Cat. No. 553030/553031/561966) antibodies and with either BD Horizon™ BB700 Hamster IgG2, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 566422; Left Plot) or BD Horizon BB700 Hamster Anti-Mouse CD28 antibody (Cat. No. 566512/566513; Right Plot) at 0.5 µg/test. BD Pharmingen™ DAPI Solution (Cat. No. 564907) was added to cells right before analysis. Two-color flow cytometric dot plots showing the correlated expression patterns of CD28 (or Ig Isotype Control staining) versus CD4 and CD8 were derived for DAPI-negative gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable leucocytes. Flow cytometric analysis was performed using a BD FACSCelesta™ 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 with BD Horizon™ BB700 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon BB700 were removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

     For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes are used in the same experiment. Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation. The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions.  More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet for the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794/566349) or the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer Plus (Cat. No. 566385).

     When setting up compensation, it is recommended to compare spillover values obtained from cells and BD™ CompBeads to ensure that beads will provide sufficiently accurate spillover values.

     For optimal results, it is recommended to perform two washes after staining with antibodies. Cells may be prepared, stained with antibodies and washed twice with wash buffer per established protocols for immunofluorescent staining, prior to acquisition on a flow cytometer. Performing fewer than the recommended wash steps may lead to increased spread of the negative population.

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. 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.

37.51

The 37.51 antibody reacts with CD28, which is expressed on most thymocytes, at low density on nearly all CD4+ and CD8+ peripheral T cells, and at even lower density on NK cells. The expression of CD28, in splenocytes and thymocytes,  has been reported to increase after activation. CD28 transcripts are found in mast cells, and cell-surface expression of CD28 is induced upon maturation or activation of mast cells. It has been reported that CD28 is not expressed on some populations of intraepithelial T lymphocytes. CD28 is a costimulatory receptor; its ligands include CD80 (B7-1) and CD86 (B7-2). The 37.51 mAb augments proliferation and cytokine production by activated T and NK cells and can provide a costimulatory signal for CTL induction. There is considerable evidence that CD28 is a costimulatory receptor involved in many, but not all, T cell-dependent immune responses.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BB700, which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue family of dyes.   It is a polymer-based tandem dye developed exclusively by BD Biosciences.  With an excitation max of 485 nm and an emission max of 693 nm, BD Horizon BB700 can be excited by the 488 nm laser and detected in a standard PerCP-Cy™5.5 set (eg, 695/40-nm filter). This dye provides a much brighter alternative to PerCP-Cy5.5 with less cross laser excitation off the 405 nm and 355 nm lasers.

BB700
The BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue 700 (BB700) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a polymer-technology dye donor with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 476-nm and an acceptor dye with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 695-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BB700 is designed to be excited by the blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 695-nm (e.g., a 695/20-nm bandpass filter). The donor dye can be excited by the Violet (405 nm) laser and the acceptor dye can be excited by the red (627–640 nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover. BB700 Reagents are significantly brighter than equivalent PerCP or PerCP-Cy5.5 reagents and are less sensitive to photobleaching. In addition, BB700 shows much less excitation by the violet (407-nm) laser resulting in less spillover. BB700 has minimal yellow green (562-nm) excitation and is ideal for instruments with both blue (488-nm) and yellow green (562-nm) lasers. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
