PE-CF594 Hamster Anti-Mouse γδ T-Cell Receptor
PE-CF594 Hamster Anti-Mouse γδ T-Cell Receptor

Two-color flow cytometric analysis of γδ TCR expression on mouse peripheral T lymphocytes. Mouse lymph node cells were preincubated with Purified Rat Anti-Mouse CD16/CD32 (Mouse BD Fc Block™) (Cat. No. 553141/553142). The cells were then stained with FITC Rat Anti-Mouse CD3 Molecular Complex (Cat. No. 555274/561798) and either PE-CF594 Hamster IgG2, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 562520; left panel) or PE-CF594 Hamster Anti-Mouse γδ T-Cell Receptor (Cat. No. 563532, right panel). Two-color flow cytometric dot plots showing the correlated expression of γδ T-Cell Receptor (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus CD3 were derived from gated events with the forward and light-scattering characteristics of viable lymphocytes. Flow cytometry was performed on a BD™ LSR II.

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 BD Horizon™ PE-CF594 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE-CF594 were removed.

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. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  4. Please observe the following precautions: Absorption of visible light can significantly alter the energy transfer occurring in any tandem fluorochrome conjugate; therefore, we recommend that special precautions be taken (such as wrapping vials, tubes, or racks in aluminum foil) to prevent exposure of conjugated reagents, including cells stained with those reagents, to room illumination.
  5. 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.
  6. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.

  9. When excited by the yellow-green (561-nm) laser, the fluorescence may be brighter than when excited by the blue (488-nm) laser.

  11. Because of the broad absorption spectrum of the tandem fluorochrome, extra care must be taken when using multi-laser cytometers, which may directly excite both PE and CF™594.

GL3

The GL3 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to a common epitope of the δ chain of the T-cell Receptor (TCR) complex on γδ TCR-expressing T lymphocytes and NK-T cells of all mouse strains tested. It does not react with αβ TCR-bearing T cells. In the mouse, cells expressing the γδ TCR are found in the thymus, intestinal epithelium, epidermis, dermis, pulmonsry epithelium, peritoneum, liver, and peripheral lymphoid organs.

This antibody is conjugated to BD Horizon™ PE-CF594, which has been developed exclusively by BD Biosciences as a better alternative to PE-Texas Red®. PE-CF594 excites and emits at similar wavelengths to PE-Texas Red® yet exhibits improved brightness and spectral characteristics. Due to PE having maximal absorption peaks at 496 nm and 564 nm, PE-CF594 can be excited by the blue (488-nm), green (532-nm) and yellow-green (561-nm) lasers and can be detected with the same filter set as PE-Texas Red® (eg 610/20-nm filter).

PE-CF594
BD Horizon™ PE-CF594 dye is a part of the BD PE family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a R-Phycoerythrin (PE) donor that has excitation maxima (Ex Max) of 496-nm and 566-nm and an acceptor dye with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 615-nm. PE-CF594, driven by BD innovation, 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 615 nm (e.g., a 610/20-nm bandpass filter). The donor dye can be excited by the Blue (488-nm), Green (532-nm) and yellow-green (561-nm) lasers and the acceptor dye can be excited by the green (532-nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
