Phosphate buffered saline with gelatin and 0.1% sodium azide.
Preparation And Storage
The FITC and PE conjugates are each supplied in 1.0 mL of PBS. PBS contains gelatin and 0.1% sodium azide. Please refer to the vial label for antibody concentration. The vial should be stored at 2° to 8°C. Conjugated forms should not be frozen and should be protected from prolonged exposure to light. Each reagent is stable for the period shown on the bottle label when stored as directed.
CD161, clone DX12, is derived from splenocytes from C3H/HeJ mice immunized with murine fibroblasts stably transfected with hNKR-P1A cDNA in the pBJ expression vector and fused with Sp2/0 myeloma cells.
CD161 recognizes the human NKR-P1A antigen, a disulfide-linked homodimer of a 40-kdalton (kDa) glycoprotein reduced to 26 kDa by treatment with N-glycanase.

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.
