Preparation And Storage

The PE conjugate is supplied in 1.0 mL of phosphate-buffered saline containing gelatin and 0.1% sodium azide. Each lot is bottled at titer as determined by immunofluorescence staining of the JY cell line. You may wish to titer the reagent for use in your specific application. Please refer to the vial label for antibody concentration. The vial should be stored at 2º to 8ºC. Conjugated forms should not be frozen and should be protected from prolonged exposure to light. Each reagent is stable for the period shown on the bottle label when stored as directed.

The CD58 (Anti–LFA-3) antibody, clone L306.4, is derived from the hybridization of Sp2/0 mouse myeloma cells with spleen cells isolated from C3H/HeN mice immunized with Lc–LFA-3 mouse L-cell transfectant.

The CD58 antibody (Anti–LFA-3) recognizes a 40- to 65-kilodalton (kDa) cell-surface glycoprotein that is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. The CD58 antigen, known as the lymphocyte function-associated antigen-3 (LFA-3), mediates cellular adhesion and participates in signal transduction when it binds to its ligand, the CD2 antigen. Cellular interactions regulated by the CD58/CD2 antigens are involved in the antigen-independent adhesion pathway and cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) activity. The CD58 antigen has two isoforms. One isoform is anchored in the cell membrane by a glycophosphatidyl inositol tail, while the other has a transmembrane hydrophobic segment and a cytoplasmic segment composed of 12 amino acids.

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.
