RB545 Hamster Anti-Mouse CD3e
RB545 Hamster Anti-Mouse CD3e
Multicolor flow cytometric analysis of CD3e expression on Mouse splenic leukocytes.  BALB/c Mouse splenocytes were preincubated with Purified Rat Anti-Mouse CD16/CD32 antibody (Mouse BD Fc Block™) [Cat. No. 553141/553142]. The cells were then stained with APC Rat Anti-Mouse CD4 (Cat. No. 553051/561091) and APC Rat Anti-Mouse CD8a (Cat. No. 553035/561093) antibodies and with either BD Horizon™ RB545 Hamster IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 570321; Left Plot) or BD Horizon™ RB545 Hamster Anti-Mouse CD3e antibody (Cat. No. 569725/569753; Right Plot) at 1 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 correlated expression of CD3e (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus CD4 and CD8a was derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable (DAPI-negative) splenic leukocytes. Samples were acquired on the BD FACSymphony™ A5 SE Cell Analyzer and spectrally unmixed using FlowJo™ v10.8 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.

Product Notices

  1. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  2. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  3. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  4. Please observe the following precautions: We recommend that special precautions be taken (such as wrapping vials, tubes, or racks in aluminum foil) to protect exposure of conjugated reagents, including cells stained with those reagents, to any room illumination. Absorption of visible light can significantly affect the emission spectra and quantum yield of tandem fluorochrome conjugates.
  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).

145-2C11

The 145-2C11 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the 25-kDa ε chain of the T-cell receptor-associated CD3 complex that is expressed on thymocytes, mature T lymphocytes, and NK-T cells. The cytoplasmic domain of CD3e participates in the signal transduction events that activate several cellular biochemical pathways as a result of antigen recognition. Soluble 145-2C11 antibody can activate either unprimed (naive) or primed (memory/preactivated) T cells in vivo or in vitro, in the presence of Fc receptor-bearing accessory cells.  In contrast, plate-bound 145-2C11 can activate T cells in the absence of accessory cells. Soluble 145-2C11 antibody has been reported to induce re-directed lysis of Fc receptor-bearing target cells by CTL clones and can also block lysis of specific target cells by antigen-specific CTL's. Under some conditions, T-cell activation by 145-2C11 antibody has been reported to result in apoptotic cell death. The 145-2C11 antibody does not cross-react with rat leukocytes. Preincubation of thymus cell suspensions at 37°C for 2-4 hours prior to staining reportedly enhances the ability of anti-CD3ε and anti-αβ TCR mAbs to detect the T-cell receptor on immature thymocytes.

RB545
The BD Horizon RealBlue™ 545 (RB545) fluorochrome is part of the BD family of blue (488-nm) laser dyes. It is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 496-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 545-nm. Driven by BD innovation, RB545 can be used on spectral cytometers and is designed to be excited by the blue (488-nm) laser with minimal excitation by the 561-nm yellow-green laser. RB545 has minimal spillover into yellow-green detectors and a brightness level similar to FITC.  Given its unique emission max, on a spectral instrument RB545 can be used simultaneously with FITC and PE to provide an additional color off of the blue laser. Please ensure that your instrument configuration (lasers and optical filters) is appropriate for this dye.
