BV421 Rat Anti-Mouse CD122
BV421 Rat Anti-Mouse CD122

Two-color flow cytometric analysis of CD122 expression on mouse splenocytes. Mouse splenic leucocytes were preincubated with Purified Rat Anti-Mouse CD16/CD32 antibody (Mouse BD Fc Block™) (Cat. No. 553141/553142). The cells were then stained with PE Rat Anti-Mouse CD49b antibody DX5 (Cat. No. 553858/561066) and either BD Horizon™ BV421 Rat IgG2a, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 562602; Left Panel) or BD Horizon BV421 Rat Anti-Mouse CD122 (Cat. No. 564925; Right Panel). The two-color flow cytometric dot plot showing the correlated expression of CD122 (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus CD49b was derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable splenic leucocytes. 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 BV421 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon BV421 were removed.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  3. 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.
  4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.

5H4

The 5H4 antibody monoclonal antibody specifically binds to mouse CD122. CD122 is a 70-85 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein of the hematopoietin receptor superfamily. CD122 is also known as IL-2 Receptor beta chain (IL-2Rβ) or IL-15 Receptor beta chain (IL-15Rβ) as it helps form signaling receptor complexes for Interleukin-2 (IL-2) or IL-15, respectively. CD122 can combine with either CD132 (γc) alone or CD132 plus CD25 (IL-2Rα) to form intermediate or high-affinity IL-2 Receptor complexes, respectively. The IL-2R β chain is constitutively expressed on NK cells and at lower levels on some thymocytes, T cells, B cells, monocytes, and macrophages. IL-2R β chain expression is upregulated by IL-2. The immunogen used to generate this hybridoma was rat myeloma cells transfected with a truncated IL-2R β cDNA. 5H4 does not block IL-2 binding to the IL-2 Receptor.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max at 421-nm, BD Horizon BV421 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the standard Pacific Blue™ filter set (eg, 450/50-nm filter). BD Horizon BV421 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue conjugates.

BV421
The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 421 (BV421) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This polymer-technology based dye has an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 407-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 423-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BV421 is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 420-nm (e.g., a 431/28-nm or 450/50-nm bandpass filter). BV421 is an ideal alternative for V450 as it is approximately ten times brighter with less spillover into the BV510/V500 detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
