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 BD 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 BD CompBead to ensure that BD CompBeads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

Product Notices

  1. Researchers should determine the optimal concentration of this reagent for their individual applications.
  2. The production process underwent stringent testing and validation to assure that it generates a high-quality conjugate with consistent performance and specific binding activity. However, verification testing has not been performed on all conjugate lots.
  3. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  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.

7G6

The 7G6 antibody recognizes an epitope shared by 145-150-kDa and 190-kDa complement receptor proteins, originally designated CR2 (CD21) and CR1 (CD35), respectively.  In the mouse, CD21 and CD35 are expressed on the majority of peripheral B lymphocytes, on the majority of resident peritoneal macrophages and mast cells, on peripheral blood granulocytes after treatment with N-formyl-Met-Leu-Phe, and on follicular dendritic cells, but not on thymocytes, T cells, erythrocytes, or platelets.  CD21 is a ligand-binding component of the CD19/CD21/CD81 signal-transduction complex associated with the antigen receptor on B lymphocytes.  CD21/CD35 also co-localizes with CD19 on the surface of peritoneal mast cells.   Cr2null mice display impaired inflammatory and humoral immune responses in vivo.  The 7G6 mAb has been reported to inhibit rosette formation by C3d-bearing sheep erythrocytes, to block the complement dependent trapping of immune complexes by follicular dendritic cells, and to down-regulate mouse CD21/CD35 expression upon in vivo application, thus inhibiting primary antibody responses to immunization.  Co-stimulation of B-cell differentiation via Sepharose-coupled 7G6 antibody has also been observed.  The 7G6 mAb recognizes an epitope on CD35 distinct from the epitope recognized by anti-mouse CD35, clone 8C12, and it does not block binding of 8C12 mAb to mouse CD35.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon Red 718, which has been developed exclusively for BD Biosciences as a better alternative to Alexa Fluor® 700. BD Horizon Red 718 can be excited by the red laser (628 – 640 nm) and, with an Em Max around 718 nm, it can be detected using a 730/45 nm filter. Due to similar excitation and emission properties, we do not recommend using R718 in combination with APC-R700 or Alexa Fluor® 700.

R718
The BD Horizon™ Red 718 (R718) Dye is part of the BD red family of dyes. It is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 695-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 718-nm. Driven by BD innovation, R718 is designed to be excited by the red laser (627–640-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 720-nm (e.g., a 720/40-nm bandpass filter). R718 is a brighter alternative to Alexa Fluor™ 700. R718 is also a bright small molecule alternative to APC-R700 with lower spread into the APC detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
