Alexa Fluor™ 488 Rat Anti-Mouse Ly-6C
Multicolor flow cytometric analysis of Ly-6C expression on Mouse splenic leucocytes.    Top Plots: BALB/c Mouse splenocytes were preincubated with Purified Rat Anti-Mouse CD16/CD32 antibody (Mouse BD Fc Block™) [Cat. No. 553141/553142]. The cells were then stained with APC Rat Anti-Mouse CD8a antibody (Cat. No. 553035) and with either Alexa Fluor™ 488 Rat IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 557720; Left Plot) or Alexa Fluor™ 488 Rat Anti-Mouse Ly-6C antibody (Cat. No. 569440/569441; Right Plot) at 1 μg/test.    Bottom Plots: BALB/c Mouse splenocytes were preincubated with Purified Rat Anti-Mouse CD16/CD32 antibody (Mouse BD Fc Block™). The cells were then stained with BD Horizon™ BUV737 Rat Anti-CD11b antibody (Cat. No. 612800) and with either Alexa Fluor™ 488 Rat IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Left Plot) or Alexa Fluor™ 488 Rat Anti-Mouse Ly-6C antibody (Right Plot) at 1 μg/test. DAPI (4',6-Diamidino-2-Phenylindole, Dihydrochloride) Solution (Cat. No. 564907) was added to cells right before analysis. The bivariate pseudocolor density plots showing the correlated expression of Ly-6C (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus CD8a (Top Plots) or CD11b (Bottom Plots) were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable (DAPI-negative) leucocytes.    Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ X-20 Cell Analyzer 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 to the dye under optimum conditions and unreacted dye was removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

BD® CompBeads can be used as surrogates to assess fluorescence spillover (compensation).  When fluorochrome conjugated antibodies are bound to BD® 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 BD® CompBeads to ensure that BD® CompBeads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

Product Notices

  1. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  2. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  3. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  4. Alexa Fluor® 488 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC).
  5. 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.
  6. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.

HK1.4.rMAb

The HK1.4.rMAb monoclonal antibody is a recombinant monoclonal antibody derived from HK1.4 hybridoma cells that specifically recognizes a non-polymorphic determinant on Mouse Lymphocyte antigen Ly-6C which is also known as Ly6c. Ly-6C is an ~14-17 kDa glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-linked cell-surface antigen that is encoded by Ly6c1 (Lymphocyte antigen 6 complex, locus C1) which belongs to the Ly-6 gene family. Ly-6C is expressed on monocytes, macrophages, neutrophils, eosinophils, endothelial cells, plasma cells, thymocytes, NK cells, and some T cell subsets. Mice with the Ly-6.2 haplotype (eg, AKR, C57BL, C57BR, C57L, C58, DBA/2, PL, SJL, SWR, 129) have subsets of CD8+ and CD4+ Ly-6C+ T cells, while Ly-6.1 strains (eg, A, BALB/c, CBA, C3H/He, DBA/1, NZB) have only CD8+ Ly-6C+ T cells.  Upregulation of Ly-6C expression on CD8+ T cells by interferons α and β and poly (I:C) has been described, and Ly-6C is a memory marker on CD8+ T cells. The HK1.4 antibody does not reportedly block the binding of the RB6-8C5 monoclonal antibody that specifically recognizes Mouse Ly-6G and Ly-6C.

Alexa Fluor™ 488
Alexa Fluor™ 488 Dye is part of the BD blue family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 494-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 517-nm. Alexa Fluor™ 488 is designed to be excited by the Blue laser (488 nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520-nm (e.g., a 530/30-nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
