PE Mouse anti-Human C3a Receptor
PE Mouse anti-Human C3a Receptor

Flow cytometric analysis of C3a Receptor (C3aR) expressed on human peripheral blood leukocytes. Whole blood was stained with PE Mouse anti-Human C3a Receptor (Cat. No. 561178), APC Mouse Anti-Human CD3 (Cat. No. 555335; Left Panel) and FITC Mouse Anti-Human CD16 (Cat. No. 555406; Right Panel) antibodies. The erythrocytes were lysed with BD PharmLyse™ Lysing Buffer (Cat. No. 555899). Two-color flow cytometric dot plots showing the correlated expression patterns of CD3 or CD16 versus C3aR were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable peripheral blood leukocytes. Flow cytometry was performed using a BD LSR™ II Flow Cytometry 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 R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were removed.

Product Notices

  1. This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
  2. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  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.

hC3aRZ8

The hC3aRZ8 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the human C3a Receptor (C3aR). C3aR is a seven-transmembrane glycoprotein, G-protein-coupled receptor that is the specific receptor for C3a anaphylatoxin. The C3aR consists of 482 amino acids forming a single polypeptide chain that is encoded by the C3AR1 gene located on chromosome 12 (location 12p13.31). C3aR are expressed by eosinophils, basophils, neutrophils, dendritic cells, monocytes, macrophages,  endothelial cells and some T cells. C3a is a bioactive cleavage product released from Complement Component 3 (C3) during complement activation. C3a plays a role in a variety of cellular immune responses as well as being a potent pro-inflammatory agent.  In response to bound C3a, this receptor stimulates cellular responses including chemotaxis, granule enzyme release and superoxide anion production and causes increased vascular permeability. In vivo, C3a production can initiate, contribute to, or exacerbate the inflammatory reactions seen in gram-negative bacterial sepsis, trauma, ARDS, ischemic heart disease, post-dialysis syndrome, and several autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus erythematosus, and acute glomerulonephritis.

PE
R-Phycoerythrin (PE), is part of the BD family of Phycobiliprotein dyes. This fluorochrome is a multimeric fluorescent phycobiliprotein with excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 496 nm and 566 nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 576 nm. PE is designed to be excited by the Blue (488 nm), Green (532 nm) and Yellow-Green (561 nm) lasers and detected using an optical filter centered near 575 nm (e.g., a 575/26-nm bandpass filter). As PE is excited by multiple lasers, this can result in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover on instruments with various combinations of Blue, Green, and Yellow-Green lasers. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
