BV605 Mouse Anti-Human CCR7 (CD197)
Flow cytometric analysis of CCR7 (CD197) on human peripheral blood leukocytes and lymphocytes. Whole blood was stained with BD Horizon™ BUV395 Mouse Anti-Human CD4 (clone RPA-T4, Cat. No. 564724), APC Mouse Anti-Human CD8 (clone RPA-T8, Cat. No. 561952, 561421, 555369, or 561953), FITC Mouse Anti-Human CD45RA (clone HI100, Cat. No. 561882 or 555488), and either BD Horizon BV605 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 562652) or BD Horizon BV605 Mouse Anti-Human CCR7 (CD197) (Cat. No. 566754 or 566755). The erythrocytes were lysed with BD PharmLyse™ Lysing Buffer (Cat. No. 555899). Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD FACS LSRFortessa™ X20 Flow Cytometer and FlowJo™ software. Plots 1 and 2: The contour plots showing Ig isotype control or CCR7 (CD197) staining versus side light-scatter were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable leucocytes. Plot 3: The contour plot showing CCR7 (CD197) staining versus CD45RA was derived from CD4-positive T cell gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable lymphocytes. Please note that we have observed considerable donor-to-donor variation in the proportion of CCR7 (CD197)-negative CD4-positive lymphocytes. Plot 4: The contour plot showing CCR7 (CD197) staining versus CD45RA was derived from CD8-positive T cell gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable lymphocytes.

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™ BV605 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon™ BV605 were removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

BD™ CompBeads can be used as surrogates to assess fluorescence spillover (Compensation).  When fluorochrome conjugated antibodies are bound to CompBeads, they have spectral properties very similar to cells.   However, for some fluorochromes there can be small differences in spectral emissions compared to cells, resulting in spillover values that differ when compared to biological controls.  It is strongly recommended that when using a reagent for the first time, users compare the spillover on cells and CompBead to ensure that BD Comp beads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

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 of the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794/566349) or the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer Plus (Cat. No. 566385).

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. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  4. 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.
  5. Please observe the following precautions: Absorption of visible light can significantly alter the energy transfer occurring in any tandem fluorochrome conjugate; therefore, we recommend that special precautions be taken (such as wrapping vials, tubes, or racks in aluminum foil) to prevent exposure of conjugated reagents, including cells stained with those reagents, to room illumination.
  6. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.

  8. Although every effort is made to minimize the lot-to-lot variation in the efficiency of the fluorochrome energy transfer, differences in the residual emission from BD Horizon™ BV421 may be observed. Therefore, we recommend that individual compensation controls be performed for every BD Horizon™ BV605 conjugate.

2-L1-A

The 2-L1-A monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the human CC chemokine receptor CCR7, also known as CD197, on the cell surface. CCR7 (previously known as BLR2, EBI1 and CMKBR7) is a seven-transmembrane, G-protein-coupled receptor specific for two CC chemokines: CCL19 (also known as MIP-3β, Exodus-3, and ELC) and CCL21 (also known as 6Ckine, Exodus-2 SLC, TCA4, and SCYA21). CCR7 mRNA is expressed mainly in lymphoid tissues including the spleen, lymph nodes and tonsil, in bone marrow, and on peripheral T and B lymphocytes, cord blood CD34-positive cells, and mature dendritic cells. In response to its cognate chemokines, CCR7 (CD197) mediates homing of leucocytes to secondary lymphoid tissues. Differential CCR7 (CD197) expression can be used to distinguish naive, central memory, and effector memory T cell subsets. The human CCR7 gene, unlike other CC chemokine receptor genes, has been mapped to chromosome 17 (region 17q12). Because the extracellular region of CCR2 (CD192) has significant sequence homology with CCR7 (CD197), BD Biosciences has confirmed that mAb 2-L1-A does not cross-react with CCR2 on the surface of transfected cells.

This antibody is conjugated to BD Horizon BV605 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max of 602-nm, BD Horizon BV605 can be excited by a violet laser and detected with a standard 610/20-nm filter set. BD Horizon BV605 is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 and an acceptor dye with an Em max at 605-nm. Due to the excitation of the acceptor dye by the green (532 nm) and yellow-green (561 nm) lasers, there will be significant spillover into the PE and BD Horizon PE-CF594 detectors off the green or yellow-green lasers. BD Horizon BV605 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting brightness equivalent to PE conjugates and can be used as a third color off of the violet laser.

BV605
The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 605 (BV605) dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a BV421 donor with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 407-nm and an acceptor dye with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 605-nm. BV605, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 610-nm (e.g., a 610/20-nm bandpass filter). The acceptor dye can be excited by the yellow-green (561-nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
