No azide/low endotoxin: Aqueous buffered solution containing no preservative, sterile filtered(0.2µm pore size membrane). Endotoxin level is ≤0.01 EU/µg (≤0.001 ng/µg) of protein as determined by the LAL assay.

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.

Recommended Assay Procedures

The 29E.2A3 monoclonal antibody can reportedly bind to Alexa Fluor™ 700 antibody conjugates during multicolor immunofluorescence staining experiments. This interaction may be circumvented by sequentially staining with the 29E.2A3 antibody first, followed by a wash step, and then further staining with an Alexa Fluor™ 700 antibody conjugate of interest.

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

The 29E.2A3 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes Programmed cell death 1 ligand 1 (PDCD1 ligand 1, PDCD1L1, PDCD1LG1) which is also known as Programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1 or PDL1) as well as CD274, or B7 homolog 1 (B7-H1, B7H1). PD-L1 (CD274) and PD-L2 (CD273) are type I transmembrane glycoproteins that belong to the B7 family within the Ig gene superfamily and serve as ligands for CD279 (Program Death 1/PD-1). PD-L1 (CD274) is expressed on antigen-presenting cells including activated monocytes, macrophages, and dendritic cells (DCs) as well as activated T cells, B cells, NK cells, and keratinocytes. PD-L1 (CD274) is also variably expressed on placental trophoblasts, myocardial endothelium, cortical thymic epithelial cells, and tumor cells. PD-L1-mediated signaling through PD-1 regulates T cell responses important for providing protective immunity while maintaining peripheral tolerance. This immune signaling checkpoint may also suppress antitumor immune responses and prevent tumor rejection. The 29E.2A3 antibody reportedly blocks PD-L1 (CD274) binding to CD279 (PD-1) and can enhance the proliferation and cytokine production of activated T cells.

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.
