PE Mouse Anti-Human CD7
PE Mouse Anti-Human CD7
Multiparameter flow cytometric analysis of CD7 expression on Human peripheral blood leucocytes. Human whole blood was stained with BD Horizon™ R718 Mouse Anti-Human CD3 antibody (Cat. No. 566953/566954) and with either PE Mouse IgG2a, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 553457; Left Plots) or PE Mouse Anti-Human CD7 antibody (Cat. No. 568337/566327; Right Plots). Erythrocytes were lysed with BD FACS™ Lysing Solution (Cat. No. 349202). The bivariate pseudocolor density plots showing the correlated expression of either CD7 (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus CD3 (Top Plots) or side light-scatter (SSC-A) signals (Bottom Plots) were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact lymphocytes (Top Plots) or leucocyte populations (Bottom Plots). Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ X-20 Cell Analyzer System and FlowJo™ software.

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 unconjugated antibody and free dye were 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 cell 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. This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
  3. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  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.
  7. Please refer to http://regdocs.bd.com to access safety data sheets (SDS).

4H9

The 4H9 (Leu-9) monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes human CD7 which is also known as T-cell leukemia antigen, T-cell surface antigen Leu-9, and  LEU-9. CD7 is a ~40 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that has an extracellular region with an N-terminal IgV-like domain followed by an extended O-glycosylated stalk region, a transmembrane region and cytoplasmic tail. The CD7 antigen is expressed throughout T-lymphocyte differentiation. It is present on 85% to 90% of peripheral blood T lymphocytes. In normal individuals, CD7 is expressed on all CD8+ lymphocytes, approximately 90% of CD4+ lymphocytes, and most NK cells. CD7 is weakly expressed on monocytes but not on granulocytes or B lymphocytes. It is expressed on hematopoietic progenitors and 50% of thymocytes. In leukemias, the CD7 antigen is present on the majority of T-lymphoid lineages. CD7 may function in cellular adhesion and play a role in interactions between T cells as well as T cells and B cells.

PE
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.
