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 the dye under optimum conditions that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.

Recommended Assay Procedures

BD® CompBeads can be used as surrogates to assess fluorescence spillover (compensation).  When fluorochrome conjugated antibodies are bound to BD® CompBeads, they have spectral properties very similar to cells.   However, for some fluorochromes there can be small differences in spectral emissions compared to cells, resulting in spillover values that differ when compared to biological controls.  It is strongly recommended that when using a reagent for the first time, users compare the spillover on cells and BD® CompBeads to ensure that BD® CompBeads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer should be used anytime BD Horizon Brilliant dyes are used in a multicolor flow cytometry panel.  Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation.  The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions. When BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer is used in in the multicolor panel, it should also be used in the corresponding compensation controls for all dyes to achieve the most accurate compensation. For the most accurate compensation, compensation controls created with either cells or beads should be exposed to BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer for the same length of time as the corresponding multicolor panel. More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794/566349) or the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer Plus (Cat. No. 566385).

The APB5 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes CD140b, the Platelet-Derived Growth Factor Receptor beta chain (PDGFRβ). CD140b is a single-pass type I transmembrane glycoprotein that contains an intracellular tyrosine kinase domain. This receptor is encoded by Pdgfrb and is widely expressed on cells within embryonic tissues and cells of mesenchymal origin in the adult mouse including fibroblasts and vascular smooth muscle cells. CD140b forms homodimers or heterodimeric receptor complexes with CD140a (PDGFRα) upon binding various dimeric Platelet-Derived Growth Factors (PDGF) isoforms that lead to receptor activation. Upon activation, CD140b is autophosphorylated at multiple tyrosine sites and, in turn, initiates several signaling cascades by binding and activation of cytoplasmic SH2 domain-containing signal transduction molecules, such as GRB2, Src, GAP, PI3 kinase, PLCγ, and NCK. These signaling pathways regulate cellular growth and proliferation, survival, differentiation, and migration involved in the development of embryonic tissues, blood vessel formation, wound healing, and in a range of diseases including fibrotic conditions, atherosclerosis, and malignancies.

The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 480 (BV480) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This polymer-technology fluorochrome has an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 440-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) of 479-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BV480 is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 480-nm (e.g., a 525/50 bandpass filter). The increased fluorescence intensity of BV480 and narrower emission spectra, make it a good alternative for BV510 or V500. Due to its excitation profile, BV480 will also has less cross-laser excitation with the UV laser, resulting in less spillover into UV channels compared to BV510. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
