The 10-3.6 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes the β chain of the I-A[k] MHC class II alloantigen. It cross-reacts with splenocytes from mice of the H-2[f], H-2[r], and H-2[s] haplotypes, from nonobese diabetic (NOD, H-2[g7]) mice, and with lymph node cells of BN, DA, WRA, and WRC rats. Reactivity with other haplotypes (e.g., b, d, p, q) has not been observed. Long-term in vivo treatment with 10-3.6 mAb has been reported to prevent the spontaneous development of autoimmune insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) in female NOD mice.
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).
