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 BV786 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
  7. Please refer to for technical protocols.

The RP/14 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD180, the "radioprotective" 105 kDa (RP105) antigen expressed on mature B lymphocytes. Like other members of the Toll-like Receptor (TLR) family, the extracellular region of CD180 contains tandem repeats of a leucine-rich motif flanked by regions containing conserved cysteines. These characteristic structural components of TLR may mediate protein-protein interactions and regulation of signal transduction involved in innate immune responses. Furthermore, CD180 associates with the secretory protein MD-1 on the cell surface. Cross-linking of cell-surface CD180 with the RP/14 antibody induces activation signals in B lymphocytes. Despite the expression of CD180 on lymphocytes of all strains tested (BALB/c, BALB/c.xid, C3H, C57BL/6, CBA/N, and 129/Sv), some strains (BALB/c.xid, C57BL/6.xid, CBA/N, 129/Sv, and 129/Ola) display deficient responses to that stimulatory effects of mAb RP/14.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV786 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 786-nm.  BD Horizon BV786 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in a filter used to detect Cy™7-like dyes (eg, 780/60-nm filter).

The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 786 (BV786) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a BV421 donor with an Ex Max of 407-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 786-nm.  BV786, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the violet laser and detected using a filter, centered near 785 nm (e.g. 780/60 nm bandpass filter).  Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and filters) are appropriate for this dye.
