Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse Anti-A2B5
Flow cytometric analysis of A2B5 expression on mouse pancreatic tumor (insulinoma) cells and Human embryonic stem cell (hESC)-derived neurons. Mouse Beta-TC-6 cells (ATCC, CRL-11506; left panel) or human H9 (WiCell, Madison, WI) hESC-derived neurons (right panel) were harvested with Accutase™ Cell Detachment Solution (Cat. No. 561527). The cells were stained with either Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse IgM, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 560806, dashed line histograms) or Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse Anti- A2B5 monoclonal antibody (solid line histograms) at matched concentrations. Dot plots were derived from gated events based on light scattering characteristics of viable cells. Flow cytometry was performed on a BD LSRFortessa™ flow cytometry 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 to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 was removed.

Product Notices

  1. 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).
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  3. 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.
  4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  5. Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for allophycocyanin (APC).
  6. The Alexa Fluor®, Pacific Blue™, and Cascade Blue® dye antibody conjugates in this product are sold under license from Molecular Probes, Inc. for research use only, excluding use in combination with microarrays, or as analyte specific reagents. The Alexa Fluor® dyes (except for Alexa Fluor® 430), Pacific Blue™ dye, and Cascade Blue® dye are covered by pending and issued patents.

105/A2B5

The 105/A2B5 monoclonal antibody binds to gangliosides in neural tissue in the retina, brain, spinal cord, and dorsal root ganglia. The antigenic gangliosides are found on the plasma membrane of neural cell bodies, but not axons or dendrites. Expression levels of the gangliosides that mAb 105/A2B5 binds to, including GT3 and its O-acetylated derivative, decrease during embryonic development of the brain. Thus, mAb 105/A2B5 may be used to monitor the maturation of brain tissue. A2B5 antigens have also been associated with numerous tumors, including glioblastoma multiforme tumor cells, pancreatic islet tumor cells, and rat insulinoma cells, and are thought to contribute to chemoresistance and increased tumor proliferation and recurrence.

Alexa Fluor™ 647
Alexa Fluor™ 647 Dye is part of the BD red family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 653-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 669-nm. Alexa Fluor 647 is designed to be excited by the Red laser (627-640 nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520-nm (e.g., a 660/20 nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
