BV421 Rat Anti-Mouse CD41
Flow cytometric analysis (left panel) of CD41 expression on mouse platelets. BALB/c mouse platelets were stained with either BD Horizon™ BV421 Rat IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 562868; dashed line histogram) or BD Horizon™ BV421 Rat Anti-Mouse CD41 antibody (Cat. No. 562957; solid line histogram). The fluorescence histograms were derived from events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of platelets. Flow cytometry was performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ Cell Analyzer System. Immunohistofluorescent analysis of CD41 expression by cells within C57BL/6 mouse spleen (right panel). A mouse spleen cryosection (5 µm) was fixed with BD Cytofix™ Fixation Buffer (Cat. No. 554655), blocked with 5% goat serum and 1% BSA diluted in 1x PBS, and stained with BD Horizon™ BV421 Rat Anti-Mouse CD41 antibody (Cat. No. 562957, pseudo-colored green), Alexa Fluor® 647 Rat Anti-Mouse CD4 antibody (Cat. No. 557681, pseudo-colored red), and BD Horizon™ BV480 Rat Anti-Mouse CD45R/B220 antibody (Cat. No. 565631, pseudo-colored blue). Images were captured on a standard epifluorescence microscope. Original magnification, 20x.

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 with BD Horizon BV421 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon BV421 were removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes are used in the same experiment.  Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation.  The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions.  More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794).

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  3. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  4. 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.

MWReg30

The MWReg30 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD41, which is also known as glycoprotein IIb (gpIIb, GP IIb), Integrin α IIb chain, or Integrin alpha 2b. CD41 is a transmembrane glycoprotein that is encoded by Itga2b. CD41 associates with Integrin β3 chain (gpIIIa or CD61) to form the gpIIb/IIIa (CD41/CD61) complex. CD41/CD61 is expressed on platelets, megakaryocytes, and early hematopoietic progenitors. The integrin complex binds to fibrinogen, fibronectin, vitronectin, von Willebrand factor, and thrombospondin. It is important for platelet adhesion and aggregation, and it may play a role in osteolytic tumor metastasis.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes.  With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max at 421-nm, BD Horizon™ BV421  can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the standard Pacific Blue™ filter set (eg, 450/50-nm filter). BD Horizon™ BV421  conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue™ conjugates.

BV421
The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 421 (BV421) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This polymer-technology based dye has an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 407-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 423-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BV421 is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 420-nm (e.g., a 431/28-nm or 450/50-nm bandpass filter). BV421 is an ideal alternative for V450 as it is approximately ten times brighter with less spillover into the BV510/V500 detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
