The P-3E10 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes CD298, the β3 subunit of the Na+/K+ ATPase (Sodium/potassium-transporting ATPase subunit beta-3). CD298 is a ~45-55 kDa single-pass, type II membrane protein that is encoded by ATP1B3 (ATPase Na+/K+ transporting subunit beta 3) which belongs to the P-type ATPases superfamily. CD298 is widely expressed on lymphocytes, monocytes, granulocytes, platelets, and on other hematopoietic and nonhematopoietic cells and cell lines. The Na+/K+ ATPase is an integral membrane protein complex with enzymatic activity that mediates the active transport and exchange of sodium and potassium ions across the plasma membrane. This complex is composed of α and β subunits. The α subunit is a 10-membrane-spanning, catalytic protein that contains binding sites for Na +, K + and ATP. The α subunits are associated with the smaller, regulatory glycoprotein β subunits. Upon ATP hydrolysis, the Na+/K+ ATPase transports Na+ ions out of the cell in exchange for K+ ions that are transported in. This establishes a transmembrane electrochemical gradient that is essential for osmoregulation and for the transport of various nutrients and other molecules by cells. The P-3E10 antibody can reportedly inhibit the activation and proliferation of T cells and B cells.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BUV615 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome with an Ex Max near 350 nm and an Em Max near 615 nm. BD Horizon Brilliant BUV615 can be excited by the ultraviolet laser (355 nm) and detected with a 610/20 filter and a 595 nm LP. Due to the excitation of the acceptor dye by the blue/yellow-green laser line, there may be significant spillover into channels detecting PE-CF594 like emissions (eg, 610/20-nm filter).
