APC-R700 Rat Anti-Mouse CD44

Flow cytometric analysis of CD44 expression on mouse bone-marrow cells. Mouse bone-marrow cells were preincubated with Purified Rat Anti-Mouse CD16/CD32 antibody (Mouse BD Fc Block™) (Cat. No. 553141/553142). The cells were then stained with either BD Horizon™ APC-R700 Rat IgG2b, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 564984; dashed line histogram) or BD Horizon APC-R700 Rat Anti-Mouse CD44 antibody (Cat. No. 565480; solid line histogram). The fluorescence histogram showing CD44 expression (or Ig Isotype control staining) was derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable bone marrow cells. Flow cytometric analysis was performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ Cell Analyzer 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.

IM7

The IM7 antibody specifically recognizes an epitope on both alloantigens and all isoforms of the CD44 glycoprotein (Pgp-1, Ly-24). The standard form of CD44, lacking variable exons and referred to as CD44H or CD44s, is widely expressed on hematopoietic and non-hematopoietic cells. CD44 isoforms encoded by variable exons are expressed on epithelial cells, but only at low levels on most leukocytes. Mice with the Ly-24.1 alloantigen (e.g., BALB/c, CBA/J, DBA/1, DBA/2) have relatively large subsets of CD44H+ T lymphocytes, while Ly-24.2 strains (e.g., A, AKR, CBA/N, C3H/He, C57BL, C57BR, C57L, C58, NZB, SJL, SWR, 129) have fewer CD44H+ T cells. CD44 is a cell adhesion receptor, and its principal ligand, hyaluronate, is a common component of extracellular matrices. Differential glycosylation of CD44 influences its binding to hyaluronate.  Additional ligands include the cell surface form of CD74 and the cytokine osteopontin (Eta-1). Bone marrow- and thymus-derived progenitor cells capable of repopulating the thymus express CD44. In the periphery, the level of CD44 expression increases upon activation of B lymphocytes, CD4+ T cells, and CD8+ T cells; memory cells can be recognized by their CD44[hi] phenotype. The IM7 mAb inhibits established collagen-induced arthritis in DBA/1 mice. Moreover, it prevents CNS inflammation and clinical symptoms of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis. In contrast, the same antibody exacerbates experimental autoimmune thyroiditis in CBA/J mice. The IM7 mAb recognizes a different epitope from that recognized by mAb KM114, and the antibody pair can be used in ELISA to detect soluble CD44. It has been observed that IM7 antibody crossreacts with human, dog, cat, horse, cow, and pig leukocytes. Anti-human CD44, clone G44-26, and IM7 antibody compete for binding to human peripheral blood lymphocytes.

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.
