Consider BD Horizon RealYellow™ 586 (RY586) Reagents, a bright and clean fluorochrome alternative to PE off the yellow-green laser. RY586 can be used alongside PE on spectral cytometers. More Info #
PE Mouse Anti-Human CD4
Multiparameter flow cytometric analysis of CD4 expression on human peripheral blood leucocytes. Human whole blood was stained with either PE Mouse IgG2b, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 555058; Left Plot) or PE Mouse Anti-Human CD4 antibody (Cat. No. 566679/566680; Right Plot). Erythrocytes were lysed with BD Pharm Lyse™ Lysing Buffer (Cat. No. 555899). Two-parameter pseudocolor dot plots showing the correlated expression of CD4 (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus side light-scatter (SSC) signals were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable leucocyte populations. Flow cytometric analysis was performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ X-20 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 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. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  4. 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.
  5. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.

OKT4

The OKT4 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes CD4 which is also known as T4 and Leu-3. CD4 is expressed on most thymocytes, T-helper/inducer cells, regulatory T cells (Tregs), and NKT cells. It is also variably expressed on monocytes, macrophages, and some dendritic cells. CD4 is a ~55 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is encoded by CD4 which belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily (IgSF). CD4 binds to a nonpolymorphic region of MHC class II and serves as a coreceptor, along with the T cell receptor for antigen (TCR), for the MHC Class II-restricted recognition of antigens on antigen-presenting cells. CD4 also functions as a receptor for human immunodeficiency viruses (HIV). CD4 has four immunoglobulin-like extracellular domains in its extracellular region and a CXCP binding motif for p56Lck in its cytoplasmic domain which regulates the antigen-bound TCR-induced signaling cascade.

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.
