FITC Rat Anti-Mouse CD184

Detection of CXCR4 expression on BALB/c thymocytes by FITC-conjugated 2B11/CXCR4. BALB/c thymocytes were stained with 1.0 µg/test of FITC-conjugated 2B11/CXCR4 and anti-mouse CD4-APC (Cat. No. 553051). The data reflects gating on lymphocytes, based on forward and side scattered light signals. The level of nonspecific staining was assessed by using FITC-conjugated rat IgG2b (Cat. No. 556923) as isotype control. The quadrant markers for the bivariate dot plots were set based on the isotype control.

Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with FITC under optimum conditions, and unreacted FITC was removed. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

Recommended Assay Procedures

Recommended Assay Procedure:

For detecting low expression levels of chemokine receptors, a multi-step staining procedure is recommended. Our purified and biotinylated formats, Cat. No. 551852 and 551968, respectively, are useful for use in detecting low levels of expression using multi-step staining protocols.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  3. 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.

2B11/CXCR4

The 2B11/CXCR4 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to mouse CD184, which is also known as the C-X-C Chemokine Receptor type 4 , CXCR4.  CXCR4 (previously known as Fusin and LESTR), is a seven-transmembrane, G-protein-coupled receptor. It is the specific receptor for the CXC chemokine, SDF-1/CXCL12.  Mouse CXCR4 shows 91% homology at the amino acid level with human CXCR4. CXCR4 is widely expressed by hematopoietic and non-hematopoietic cell types including neutrophils, monocytes, T cells, B cells, CD34-positive progenitor cells, endothelial cells, neurons and astrocytes.  Human CXCR4 is used by T-tropic HIV-1 as a co-receptor for viral entry.  The mouse Cxcr4 gene has been mapped to chromosome 1.

This antibody is routinely tested by flow cytometric analysis. Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

FITC
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.
