PE Rat Anti-Mouse Ly-6G
PE Rat Anti-Mouse Ly-6G

Expression of Ly-6G on bone-marrow leukocytes. C57BL/6 bone-marrow cell suspensions were stained with either PE Rat Anti-Mouse Ly-6G (Cat. No. 551461,  open histograms) or PE Rat IgG2a, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 553930, filled histograms), in the presence of Mouse Fc Block™ purified anti-mouse CD16/CD32 (Cat. No. 553141/553142). Non-viable leukocytes were excluded by staining with Propidium Iodide Staining Solution (Cat. No. 556463), and leukocyte subsets were distinguished by their light-scatter profiles. The left panel displays lymphoid and erythroid cells, and the right panel displays myeloid cells. Flow cytometry was performed on a FACSCalibur™ (BDIS, San Jose, CA).

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.

Recommended Assay Procedures

For flow cytometry of leukocyte suspensions, we recommend the use of Mouse Fc Block™ (purified anti-mouse CD16/CD32 mAb 2.4G2, Cat. No. 553141/553142).

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. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.

1A8

The 1A8 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to Ly-6G, a 21-25-kDa GPI-anchored protein. In the bone marrow, Ly6G is expressed on the majority of the largest cells, predominantly granulocytes, but not on lymphoid or erythroid cells.  In the periphery, it is expressed on granulocytes. The mAb RB6-8C5 recognizes both Ly-6G and Ly-6C and blocks the binding of mAb 1A8 to Ly-6G.

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.
