PE Mouse Anti-Myosin Heavy Chain
PE Mouse Anti-Myosin Heavy Chain

Analysis of Myosin Heavy Chain in human embryonic stem cell (hESC)-derived cardiomyocytes. hESC-

derived cardiomyocytes (Evans laboratory, UC San Diego) were disassociated and fixed in BD Cytofix™ Fixation Buffer (Cat. No. 554655), permeabilized with BD Phosflow™ Perm/Wash Buffer I (Cat. No. 557885), and stained with PE Mouse Anti-Myosin Heavy Chain (MHC) and Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse Anti-Cardiac Troponin I (cTnI) (Cat. No. 554409). The cells were first gated on light scatter properties and then analyzed for MHC and cTnI expression. Flow cytometry was performed on a BD LSRFortessa™ flow cytometry system.

PE Mouse Anti-Myosin Heavy Chain

Analysis of Myosin Heavy Chain in differentiated C2C12 mouse myoblast cell line. C2C12 cells (ATCC: CRL-1772) that were differentiated for 3 days and then disassociated and fixed in BD Cytofix™ Fixation Buffer (Cat. No. 554655), permeabilized with BD Phosflow™ Perm/Wash buffer I (Cat. No. 557885), and stained with PE Mouse Anti-Myosin Heavy Chain (MHC).

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. 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. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  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.

MF20

The MF20 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the heavy chain component of skeletal muscle myosin or myosin II. Skeletal muscle myosin is composed of 2 heavy chains and 4 light chains. Myosin Heavy chain is a 220-kDa protein that interacts with actin in the ATP-dependent mechanism of muscle contraction.  This antibody is reported to cross react with human, mouse, rat, chicken, dog, frog, and zebrafish.

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.
