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.

CMRF-56

The CMRF-56 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to a 96 kDa, early activation/differentiation antigen expressed on dendritic cells (DCs). The CMRF-56 antigen is expressed on isolated Langerhans cells, dermal DCs, migratory dermal DCs and monocyte derived DCs (GM-CSF, IL-4, TNF-α). Circulating blood DCs are CMRF-56-, but its expression is induced within 6 hrs of in vitro culture. Tonsil and synovial fluid DCs upregulate CMRF-56 expression following short-term in vitro culture. It is not detected on resting peripheral blood leukocytes, but is on a subpopulation of tonsil B cells and on in vitro cultured CD19+ cells. CMRF-56 was generated using the Hodgkin's-derived L428 cell line as immunogen. This reagent could be useful in flow cytometric or immunomagnetic separation procedures and immunohistochemical staining of acetone-fixed frozen tissue sections.

Purified
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
