Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse anti-Human CCL18/DC-CK1
Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse anti-Human CCL18/DC-CK1
Flow cytometric analysis of human CCL18 expression in cultured immature monocyte-derived dendritic cells or unstimulated peripheral blood monocytes. Immature monocyte-derived dendritic cells (MoDC; Left Panel) were generated from peripheral blood monocytes cultured in complete Iscove's Modified Dulbecco's Medium (IMDM) containing recombinant human IL-4 (Cat. No. 554605) and GM-CSF (Cat. No. 550068) for 5 days. Peripheral blood monocytes (PB-M; Right Panel) from freshly-isolated peripheral blood mononuclear cells served as control cells. Cells were fixed and permeabilized using BD Cytofix/Cytoperm™ Fixation/Permablization Kit reagents (Cat. No. 554714) followed by staining with Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse Anti-Human CCL18 antibody (Cat. No. 561318). Histograms show the expression pattern of CCL18 (solid line histogram) or an Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat No. 557732, dashed line histogram) in these two cell populations derived by gating events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact MoDC or PB-M. Flow cytometry was performed using a BD™ LSR II Flow Cytometry System.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 was removed.

Product Notices

  1. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  2. This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
  3. The Alexa Fluor®, Pacific Blue™, and Cascade Blue® dye antibody conjugates in this product are sold under license from Molecular Probes, Inc. for research use only, excluding use in combination with microarrays, or as analyte specific reagents. The Alexa Fluor® dyes (except for Alexa Fluor® 430), Pacific Blue™ dye, and Cascade Blue® dye are covered by pending and issued patents.

  5. Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for allophycocyanin (APC).
  6. 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.

AZN-CK18

The AZN-CK18 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the CC chemokine ligand 18 (CCL18), also known as Dendritic cell chemokine 1 (DC-CK1). CCL18 is expressed by dendritic cells and activated (eg, with LPS or cytokines including IL-4, IL-10, IL-13) monocytes and macrophages. CCL18 is a chemotactic factor that primarily attracts T and B lymphocytes (but not monocytes or granulocytes) towards dendritic cells and macrophages. This suggests that CCL18 likely plays roles in the development of both humoral and cell-mediated immune responses and may participate is certain inflammatory diseases, such as those affecting the joints and lungs.

Alexa Fluor™ 647
Alexa Fluor™ 647 Dye is part of the BD red family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 653-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 669-nm. Alexa Fluor 647 is designed to be excited by the Red laser (627-640 nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520-nm (e.g., a 660/20 nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
