R718 Rat Anti-Mouse CD366 (TIM-3)
R718 Rat Anti-Mouse CD366 (TIM-3)
Multicolor flow cytometric analysis of CD366 (TIM-3) expression on viable activated Mouse splenic leukocytes.  BALB/c Mouse splenocytes were cultured for 4 days in the presence of plate-bound Purified NA/LE Hamster Anti-Mouse CD3e (Cat. No. 553057/567114; 10 μg/ml for coating), soluble Purified NA/LE Hamster Anti-Mouse CD28 (Cat. No. 567110/553294; 2 μg/ml), and Purified NA/LE Rat Anti-Mouse IL-4 (Cat. No. 554432) antibodies. The cells were harvested, washed and preincubated with Purified Rat Anti-Mouse CD16/CD32 antibody (Mouse BD Fc Block™) [Cat. No. 553141/553142]. The cells were then stained with PE Rat Anti-Mouse CD8a antibody (Cat. No. 553032) and with either BD Horizon™ R718 Rat IgG2a, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 566941; Left Plot) or BD Horizon™ R718 Rat Anti-Mouse CD366 (TIM-3) antibody (Cat. No. 569809/569883; Right Plot) at 0.5 µg/test. DAPI (4',6-Diamidino-2-Phenylindole, Dihydrochloride) Solution (Cat. No. 564907) was added to cells right before analysis. The bivariate pseudocolor density plot showing the expression of CD366 (TIM-3) [or Ig Isotype control staining] versus CD8a was derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable (DAPI-negative) splenic lymphocytes. Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ X-20 Cell Analyzer System and FlowJo™ software. Data shown on this Technical Data Sheet are not lot specific.

Preparation And Storage

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 unreacted dye was removed. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

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 cells and BD® CompBeads to ensure that BD® CompBeads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

25F.1D6

The 25F.1D6 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes CD366 which is also known as TIM-3 (T-cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain-containing 3,  T-cell immunoglobulin mucin receptor 3, or T-cell membrane protein 3). CD366 (TIM-3) is an ~31 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein encoded by Havcr2 (Hepatitis A virus cellular receptor 2) that belongs to the TIM family within the Ig superfamily. CD366 (TIM-3) is comprised of one IgV-type domain followed by a serine/threonine-rich mucin stalk region in its extracellular region, a transmembrane segment, and a tyrosine phosphorylation motif in its cytoplasmic tail. CD366 (TIM-3) expression is upregulated on subpopulations of activated myeloid cells including macrophages, monocytes, dendritic cells (DC), microglia, mast cells as well as on Type-1 CD4+ (Th1-like) T cells, cytotoxic CD8+ T cells, regulatory T cells (Treg), and natural killer (NK) cells. CD366 (TIM-3) functions as an inhibitory receptor that helps maintain immunological homeostasis and self-tolerance. It may also serve an immune checkpoint molecule that inhibits antitumor immunity and promotes T cell exhaustion. Crosslinking of cell surface CD366 (TIM-3) by Galectin-9 binding downregulates Th1-like and CD8+ T cell responses and can promote Treg or myeloid-derived suppressor cells. CD366 (TIM-3) enables DC to bind phosphatidyl serine expressed by apoptotic cells, phagocytize these cells to suppress inflammation and promote antigen cross-presentation. CD366 (TIM-3) can also bind to high mobility group protein B1 (HMGB1) and inhibit stimulation of the immune response to nucleic acids released by dying tumor cells.

R718
The BD Horizon™ Red 718 (R718) Dye is part of the BD red family of dyes. It is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 695-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 718-nm. Driven by BD innovation, R718 is designed to be excited by the red laser (627–640-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 720-nm (e.g., a 720/40-nm bandpass filter). R718 is a brighter alternative to Alexa Fluor™ 700. R718 is also a bright small molecule alternative to APC-R700 with lower spread into the APC detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
