Aqueous buffered solution containing ≤0.09% sodium azide.

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 BV480 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.
  8. BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer is covered by one or more of the following US patents: 8,110,673; 8,158,444; 8,575,303; 8,354,239.
  9. BD Horizon Brilliant Violet 480 is covered by one or more of the following US patents: 8,575,303; 8,354,239.

The RUU-PL7F12 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes CD61, a 110 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein, also known as Glycoprotein IIIa (gpIIIa), the common β-subunit (integrin β3-chain) of the gpIIb/IIIa complex and the vitronectin receptor (VNR). The gpIIb/IIIa complex and the VNR are integrins, ie, α/β-heterodimeric glycoprotein complexes that are involved in cell adhesion. With the CD41 antigen (gpIIb or αIIb), the CD61 antigen forms the gpIIb/IIIa complex, which acts as a receptor for fibrinogen, von Willebrand factor (vWf), fibronectin, and vitronectin on activated platelets. With the CD51 antigen (VNR α-chain or αv), the CD61 antigen forms the VNR, which mediates activation-independent cell adhesion to vitronectin, vWf, fibrinogen, and thrombospondin. The CD61 antigen is found on all normal resting and activated platelets. Platelets from individuals with Glanzmann's thrombasthenia show a >90% reduction of binding of CD61, and heterozygote carriers of the disorder show approximately 50% reduction. The CD61 antigen is also found on endothelial cells, megakaryocytes, and on some myeloid, erythroid, and T-lymphoid leukemic cell lines.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV480 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 436-nm and Em Max at 478-nm, BD Horizon BV480 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the BD Horizon BV510 (525/40-nm) filter set.  BV480 has less spillover into the BV605 detector and, in general, is brighter than BV510.

The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 480 (BV480) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This polymer-technology fluorochrome has an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 440-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) of 479-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BV480 is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 480-nm (e.g., a 525/50 bandpass filter). The increased fluorescence intensity of BV480 and narrower emission spectra, make it a good alternative for BV510 or V500. Due to its excitation profile, BV480 will also has less cross-laser excitation with the UV laser, resulting in less spillover into UV channels compared to BV510. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
