PE Mouse Anti-Human EGF Receptor
PE Mouse Anti-Human EGF Receptor
Flow cytometric analysis of EGF Receptor expression on human epidermoid carcinoma cells. A-431 cells (ATCC CRL-1555) were stained with PE Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 554680; dashed line histogram) or PE Mouse Anti-Human EGF Receptor antibody (Cat. No. 566778; solid line histogram) at 0.5 µg/test. The fluorescence histogram showing EGF Receptor expression (or Isotype control staining) was derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable cells. Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD FACSCelesta™ Cytometer System and FlowJo™ software. Data shown on this Technical Data Sheet are not lot specific.

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 R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were 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. 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.

EMab-134

The EMab-134 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGF-R). The EGF-R is a transmembrane glycoprotein of approximately 170 kDa that is expressed on most cells. It consists of a glycosylated extracellular domain which binds to epidermal growth factor (EGF), a transmembrane domain, and an intracellular domain with tyrosine-kinase activity essential for signal transduction. The epitope recognized by EMab-134 is an extracellular peptide that is not affected by glycosylation. The EGF-R plays an important role in the growth and differentiation of many cellular types. Transforming growth factor α (TGFα), vaccinia virus growth factor, and related growth factors can also bind to and signal through the EGF-R.

PE
R-Phycoerythrin (PE), is part of the BD family of Phycobiliprotein dyes. This fluorochrome is a multimeric fluorescent phycobiliprotein with excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 496 nm and 566 nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 576 nm. PE is designed to be excited by the Blue (488 nm), Green (532 nm) and Yellow-Green (561 nm) lasers and detected using an optical filter centered near 575 nm (e.g., a 575/26-nm bandpass filter). As PE is excited by multiple lasers, this can result in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover on instruments with various combinations of Blue, Green, and Yellow-Green lasers. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
