Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. This preparation contains no preservatives, thus it should be handled under aseptic conditions.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Although hamster immunoglobulin isotypes have not been well defined, BD Biosciences Pharmingen has grouped Armenian and Syrian hamster IgG monoclonal antibodies according to their reactivity with a panel of mouse anti-hamster IgG mAbs. A table of the hamster IgG groups, Reactivity of Mouse Anti-Hamster Ig mAbs, may be viewed at http://www.bdbiosciences.com/documents/hamster_chart_11x17.pdf.

HM48-1

The HM48-1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD48 (previously known as BCM1 in mice, Blast-1 in human, and OX-45 in the rat), a GPI-anchored member of the Ig superfamily. It is widely distributed on leukocytes, but not on non-hematopoietic cells, and its ligands include CD2 (LFA-2) and CD244 (2B4 antigen). The HM48-1 mAb blocks binding of soluble CD2 to CD48-bearing cells, blocks the interaction of CD2 and CD244, inhibits spleen cell proliferative responses to mitogens, augments the proliferative response of spleen cells when cross-linked with anti-CD3e mAbs, and inhibits priming of CTL in vitro. In vivo administration of HM48-1 antibody can prolong survival of cardiac allografts, an effect which is greatly enhanced by the addition of anti-CD2 mAb 12-15. This hamster mAb to a mouse leukocyte antigen does not cross-react with rat leukocytes.

NA/LE
NA/LE refers to the culture and purification methods and buffer used to produce purified antibodies with no azide and low endotoxin: Aqueous buffered solution containing no preservative, 0.2µm sterile filtered. Endotoxin level is ≤0.01 EU/µg (≤0.001 ng/µg) of protein as determined by the LAL assay.NA/LE are perfectly suited to be used in culture or in vivo (for nonhuman studies) for functional assays — blocking, neutralizing, activation or depletion — where the presence of azide may damage cells or exogenous endotoxin may signal or activate cells.
