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 BUV563 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.

The L272 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes CD26 which is also known as Dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP IV), a serine protease. CD26 is a ~120 kDa type II transmembrane glycoprotein that is encoded by DPP4 and belongs to the DPP4 activity and/or structure homologue (DASH) protein family. It is associated with the binding of the TAT transactivating protein of the HIV. CD26 and CD45 act in a costimulatory fashion on T lymphocytes. Present on peripheral blood T lymphocytes, the CD26 antigen is upregulated on phytohemagglutinin (PHA) and concanavalin A (Con A)-stimulated peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs). The CD26 antigen is found on approximately 50% of CD4 and approximately 30% of CD8 cells. It is also found on some mature thymocytes, B cells, natural killer (NK) cells, monocytes, macrophages, epithelial cells, EBV transformed B-cell lines, and hairy cell leukemia. Absolute numbers of CD4+CD26+ and CD8+CD26+ cells are reported to be lower in HIV-positive individuals. The CD26-CD4+ cell appears to be a reservoir for HIV. CD26 bright CD4 lymphocytes are CD25+ and CD45RO+ memory T lymphocytes. The CD26 antigen can serve as a receptor for the coronavirus, MERS-CoV.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BUV563 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BUV395 which has an Ex Max of 348 nm and an acceptor dye. The tandem has an Em Max at 563 nm. BD Horizon BUV563 can be excited by the 355 nm ultraviolet laser. On instruments with a 561 nm Yellow-Green laser, the recommended bandpass filter is 585/15 nm with a 535 nm long pass to minimize laser light leakage. When BD Horizon BUV563 is used with an instrument that does not have a 561 nm laser, a 560/40 nm filter with a 535 nm long pass may be more optimal. Due to the excitation and emission characteristics of the acceptor dye, there may be spillover into the PE and PE-CF594 detectors. However, the spillover can be corrected through compensation as with any other dye combination.

The BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet 563 (BUV563) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a BUV395 donor with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 350-nm and an acceptor dye with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 564-nm. BUV563, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the ultraviolet laser (355-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 560-nm (e.g., a 560/40 or a 585/15-nm bandpass filter). The acceptor dye can be excited by the Blue (488-nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
