The V48-2310 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes CD182 which is also known as C-X-C chemokine receptor type 2 (CXCR2). CD182 is a seven-transmembrane protein and member of the G protein-coupled receptor 1 family that is encoded by Cxcr2 [Chemokine (C-X-C motif) receptor 2]. CD182 is highly expressed on neutrophils and binds to CXCL1 (KC/GRO-alpha), CXCL2 (MIP2), CXCL3 (Dcip1), CXCL5 (LIX), and CXCL7 (NAP-2). CD182 plays a role in neutrophil activation and trafficking.
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).
