CD18 (Anti-LFA-1β), clone L130, is derived from hybridization of mouse Sp2/0 myeloma cells with spleen cells from BALB/c mice immunized with thymic T-cell antigen receptor (TCR)-γ/δ+ T lymphocytes.

CD18 (Anti-LFA-1β) recognizes the Mr 95-kdalton (kDa) β chain of the leucocyte function–associated antigen-1 (LFA-1). LFA-1, a member of a subfamily of integrin receptors, is a leucocyte adhesion receptor that binds to an intercellular adhesion molecule (ICAM) on target tissues. This subfamily consists of three heterodimeric proteins that share a common noncovalently-associated β chain (CD18 antigen) but possess distinct α-subunits recognized by CD11a (anti-LFA-1α), CD11b (Leu-15), and CD11c (Leu-M5).

Fluorescein (FITC) is part of the BD blue family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 494-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 518-nm. FITC is designed to be excited by the Blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520 nm (e.g., a 530/30-nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
