APC-R700 Mouse Anti-Human CD117

Flow cytometric analysis of CD117 expressed on TF-1 cells. Human TF-1 cells (ATCC CRL-2003) were stained with either BD Horizon™ APC-R700 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 564974; dashed line histogram) or the BD Horizon APC-R700 Mouse Anti-Human CD117 antibody (Cat. No. 565195; solid line histogram). Flow cytometric fluorescence histograms were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable cells. 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 with BD Horizon APC-R700 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon APC-R700 were 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. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  3. Alexa Fluor® is a registered trademark of Molecular Probes, Inc., Eugene, OR.
  4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  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. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.

YB5.B8

The YB5.B8 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD117, which is also known as c-Kit, or Stem cell factor Receptor (SCFR). CD117 is a ~145 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein with tyrosine kinase activity. CD117 is present on hematopoietic progenitor cell subsets, thymocytes, mast cells, hepatocytes and histiocytes. CD117 serves as a cytokine receptor for steel factor (SLF), also known as stem cell factor (SCF), or mast cell growth factor (MGF). The interaction of CD117 and SLF is crucial to hematopoiesis, mast cell differentiation, melanogenesis, and germ cell development. The ability of the YB5.B8 antibody to block the binding of c-Kit ligand is still controversial.

This antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon APC-R700, which has been developed exclusively by BD Biosciences as a better alternative to Alexa Fluor® 700. APC-R700 excites and emits at similar wavelengths to Alexa Fluor® 700 yet exhibits significantly improved brightness. This dye can be excited by the red laser and detected with the same filter set as Alexa Fluor® (eg, 730/45-nm filter).

APC-R700
The BD Horizon™ APC-R700 (APC-R700) Dye is a part of the BD APC red family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of an Allophycocyanin (APC) dye donor that has excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 651-nm and an acceptor dye, R700, with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 706-nm. APC-R700, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the red (627–640-nm) laser and detected using an optical filter centered near 710-nm (e.g., a 720/40-nm bandpass filter). APC-R700 is a brighter alternative to Alexa Fluor™ 700. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
