PE Rat anti-Mouse CD146
PE Rat anti-Mouse CD146

Multicolor flow cytometric analysis of CD146 expression on C57BL/6 splenocytes. Spleen cells were stained with APC Rat Anti-Mouse CD49b antibody (Cat. No. 560628) and either PE Rat IgG2a, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 554689; Left Panel) or PE Rat Anti-Mouse CD146 antibody (Cat. No. 562196; Right Panel). Two-color flow cytometric dot plots showing the correlated expression patterns of CD49b versus CD146 (or Ig isotype control staining) were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable lymphocytes. Flow cytometry was performed using a BD LSR™ II Flow Cytometer System.

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 R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were removed.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  3. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  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. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.

ME-9F1

The ME-9F1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to mouse CD146. The CD146 adhesion molecule is a type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein and member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. CD146 is expressed by blood vessel endothelial cells and may play roles in forming intercellular junctions between endothelial cells and influencing the transendothelial migration of other cell types. CD146 is also expressed by some melanoma cell lines, NK cells and neutrophils. CD146 is not detectable on mouse monocytes, dendritic cells, T cells, NKT cells, B cells and smooth muscle cells. Increased expression of CD146 is reportedly associated with NK cell maturation and may be used to characterize different functional NK cell subsets. Activated CD146-positive mouse NK cells reportedly are less cytotoxic and secrete less IFN-γ than their CD146-negative counterparts.

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.
