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 to the dye under optimum conditions that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.

Recommended Assay Procedures

BD™ CompBeads can be used as surrogates to assess fluorescence spillover (Compensation).  When fluorochrome conjugated antibodies are bound to CompBeads, they have spectral properties very similar to cells.   However, for some fluorochromes there can be small differences in spectral emissions compared to cells, resulting in spillover values that differ when compared to biological controls.  It is strongly recommended that when using a reagent for the first time, users compare the spillover on cells and CompBead to ensure that BD Comp beads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes 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. 563794/566349) or the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer Plus (Cat. No. 566385).

Product Notices

The 10D5 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes Integrin alpha v beta 6 (αvβ6) that is also known as CD51/β6. This heterodimeric receptor is comprised of transmembrane type I alpha and beta chain glycoproteins that are encoded by ITGAV (integrin subunit alpha) and ITGB6 (integrin subunit beta 6), respectively. Like other integrins, αvβ6 serves as a transmembrane adhesion receptor that can tether the intracellular cytoskeleton to the extracellular matrix (ECM) by binding to R-G-D sequences of ECM protein ligands including fibronectin, vitronectin, and tenascin. Integrin αvβ6 likewise plays a key role in the activation of transforming growth factor beta-1 (TGFβ1) by its R-G-D-dependent release of TGFβ1 from regulatory Latency-associated peptide (LAP). Some viruses, such as. Coxsackieviruses and Herpes simplex virus-1 use Integrin αvβ6 as a receptor to infect cells. Integrin αvβ6 engages in bidirectional signaling, ie, outside-in and inside-out signaling, to regulate essential cellular functions. These include adhesion, migration, polarization, differentiation, and proliferation that are crucial to tissue homeostasis. Although not normally expressed on adult epithelial cells/keratinocytes, its expression is upregulated on these cells during the course of embryonic development, inflammation, tissue injury, wound healing, as well as malignant transformation. The 10D5 antibody blocks Integrin αvβ6-dependent cellular adhesion and migration and reportedly recognizes both human and mouse αvβ6 integrins. Binding of 10D5 antibody to αvβ6 is divalent-cation dependent.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV510 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 405-nm and Em Max at 510-nm, BD Horizon BV510 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the BD Horizon V500 (525/50-nm) filter set. BD Horizon BV510 conjugates are useful for the detection of dim markers off the violet laser.

The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 510 (BV510) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This polymer-technology based dye with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 327-nm / 405-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 512-nm. BV510, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 510-nm (e.g., a 525/50 bandpass filter). The dye can be excited by the UV (355-nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and spillover. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
