Alexa Fluor® 647 Rat Anti-Mouse CD106
Alexa Fluor® 647 Rat Anti-Mouse CD106

Flow cytometric analysis of CD106 expression on mouse bone marrow cells. BALB/c mouse bone marrow cells were stained with either an Alexa Fluor® 647 Rat IgG2a, κ Isotype Control (Cat No. 557690, Left Panel) or with the Alexa Fluor® 647 Rat Anti-Mouse CD106 antibody (Cat No. 561612, Right Panel). Flow cytometric dot plots showing the correlated expression of side light-scatter versus CD106 (or Ig isotype control staining) were derived from total viable cells from bone marrow. 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 to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 was 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. 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.
  4. Alexa Fluor® is a registered trademark of Molecular Probes, Inc., Eugene, OR.
  5. Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for allophycocyanin (APC).
  6. 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.

429 (MVCAM.A)

The 429 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to both the long (~110 kDa) transmembrane-spanning form and the truncated (~47 kDa) GPI-linked form of vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1, CD106). CD106 is constitutively expressed on bone marrow stromal cells, myeloid cells, and splenic dendritic cells. Its expression on endothelial cells is upregulated by inflammatory cytokines and in certain pathologic conditions. CD106 expression has also been detected on apoptotic thymocytes, splenocytes, and lymphoid cell lines. VCAM-1 is a counter-receptor for VLA-4 (α4β1 integrin) and LPAM-1 (α4β7 integrin), and the 429 antibody partially blocks VCAM-1-mediated binding functions. Source of the immunogen was the mouse preadipose cell line PA6.

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.
