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 that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.

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. 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.
  2. Researchers should determine the optimal concentration of this reagent for their individual applications.
  3. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  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. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at

The MIH37 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes Programmed cell death 1 ligand 2 (PD-L2) which is also known as CD273 and Butyrophilin B7-DC (B7-DC). This regulatory molecule is a 42-kDa type I membrane glycoprotein encoded by Pdcd1lg2 which belongs to the B7 family of the Ig superfamily. CD273 (PD-L2)  is comprised of an extracellular region with an N-terminal IgV-like domain followed by an IgC2-type domain, a transmembrane sequence, and a cytoplasmic tail. Although not detected on resting leucocytes, its expression is upregulated upon activation of macrophages and dendritic cells (DC) by a variety of stimulatory factors including IL-4, IL-13, or GM-CSF. CD273 (PD-L2) serves as a ligand for the coinhibitory receptor, CD279 (PD-1), a receptor that likewise binds to the CD274 (PD-L1) ligand. CD273 (PD-L2) also binds to Repulsive guidance molecule b (RGMb) that is expressed by T cells, macrophages, neutrophils, and DC. RGMb may associate with other receptors that transduce costimulatory or coinhibitory signals. The MIH37 antibody reportedly blocks the binding of CD273 (PB-L2) to its receptors, CD279 (PD-1) or RGMb and can inhibit antigen-specific T cell responses and hapten-induced contact hypersensitivity reactions. The TY25 monoclonal antibody reportedly binds with lower affinity near or at the same mouse CD273 (PD-L2) epitope recognized by the MIH37 antibody.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV750 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 with an Ex Max of 405-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 750-nm. BD Horizon Brilliant BV750 can be excited by the violet laser (405 nm) and detected with a 750/30 nm filter with a 740 nm long pass. Due to spectral differences between labeled cells and beads, using BD™ CompBeads can result in incorrect spillover values when used with BD Horizon BV750 reagents. Therefore, the use of BD CompBeads or BD CompBeads Plus to determine spillover values for these reagents is not recommended.

The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 750 (BV750) 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 409-nm and an acceptor dye with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 754-nm. BV750, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 750-nm (e.g., a 750/30 nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
