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 BUV395 under optimal conditions that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.

Recommended Assay Procedures

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes (including BD OptiBuild Brilliant reagents) 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).

Product Notices

  1. This antibody was developed for use in flow cytometry.
  2. The production process underwent stringent testing and validation to assure that it generates a high-quality conjugate with consistent performance and specific binding activity. However, verification testing has not been performed on all conjugate lots.
  3. Researchers should determine the optimal concentration of this reagent for their individual applications.
  4. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  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.

T47-530

The T47-530 specifically recognizes the Lymphocyte Activation Gene 3 (LAG-3) protein which is also known as, Protein FDC, or CD223. LAG-3 is a ~70 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the Ig superfamily and exhibits homology to CD4. LAG-3 is expressed on NK cells, regulatory T cells, and activated conventional T cells with higher expression found on CD8+ T cells compared with CD4+ T cells. LAG-3 is an activation induced cell surface molecule that like CD4, binds MHC class II molecules, but with much higher affinity. This may enable LAG-3 to act as a negative competitor of CD4 for MHC class II ligand binding. LAG-3 may associate with the TCR-CD3 complex to downregulate TCR signal transduction and T cell clonal expansion. In contrast, LAG-3-induced signaling may promote dendritic cell activation.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BUV395 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. This dye has been exclusively developed by BD Biosciences to have minimal spillover into other detectors, making it an optimal choice for multicolor flow cytometry. With an Ex Max at 348 nm and an Em Max at 395 nm, BD Horizon BUV395 can be excited with a 355 nm laser and detected with a 379/28 filter.

BUV395
The BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet 395 (BUV395) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. This base dye is a polymer fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 348-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 395-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BUV395 is designed to be excited by the ultraviolet laser (355-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 380-nm (e.g., 379/28-nm bandpass filter). BUV395 is the ideal dye when using only one detector on the ultraviolet laser as it spills into no other detectors and no other fluors spill into it. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
