BV421 Mouse Anti-Human CD137
Flow cytometric analysis of CD137 expression on stimulated human peripheral blood lymphocytes. Concanavalin A-stimulated (3 days) peripheral blood mononuclear cells were stained with either BD Horizon™ BV421 Mouse IgG1, k Isotype Control (Cat. No. 562438; dashed line histogram) or BD Horizon BV421 Mouse Anti-Human CD137 antibody (Cat. No. 564091; solid line histogram). The fluorescence histograms were derived from events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable activated lymphocytes. Flow cytometric analysis 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 with BD Horizon BV421 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon BV421 were removed.

Product Notices

  1. This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
  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.
  4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.

4B4-1

The 4B4-1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD137 which is also known as 4-1BB, and ILA (induced by lymphocyte activation). CD137 is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the TNF/NGF receptor family. It is encoded by TNFRSF9 (tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily, member 9). CD137 is expressed on activated T cells, B cells, monocytes, and follicular dendritic cells. CD137 plays roles in the costimulation, differentiation and survival of T cells and B cells.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max at 421-nm, BD Horizon BV421 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the standard Pacific Blue™ filter set (eg, 450/50-nm filter). BD Horizon BV421 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue conjugates.

BV421
The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 421 (BV421) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This polymer-technology based dye has an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 407-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 423-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BV421 is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 420-nm (e.g., a 431/28-nm or 450/50-nm bandpass filter). BV421 is an ideal alternative for V450 as it is approximately ten times brighter with less spillover into the BV510/V500 detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
