BD Pharmingen™
BP-3 Alloantigen
Mouse (QC Testing)
Mouse Mus spretus, also known as STF Mus spretus IgG2b, κ
Mouse pre-B cell line
Flow cytometry (Routinely Tested)
0.2 mg/ml
Aqueous buffered solution containing ≤0.09% sodium azide.

Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were removed. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

Recommended Assay Procedures

For optimal staining of peripheral lymphoid tissue, we recommend the use of Mouse BD Fc Block™ (anti-mouse CD16/CD32 mAb 2.4G2, Cat. No. 553141/553142).

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at
  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.

The BP-3 antibody reacts with CD157, also known as the BP-3 alloantigen or Bone marrow STromal cell antigen-1 (BST-1), found in a variety of common laboratory strains of mice (AKR, BALB/c, CBA/N, C3H/HeJ, C57BL/6, DBA/2, NZB, C.B-17, SJL and Swiss, but not A/J). CD157 is a differentially glycosylated GPI-linked cell-surface glycoprotein with a core protein of 32 kDa and differing patterns of glycosylation in different types of cells. It is a member, along with CD38, of a family of genetically-related ectoenzymes. The BP-3 alloantigen is expressed on the B lineage from the earliest detectable progenitors to circulating immature B lymphocytes, on immature thymocytes up to the   expression of the T-cell receptor, on circulating neutrophils, peritoneal macrophages, on subpopulations of stromal cells in peripheral lymphoid organs (but not in bone marrow or thymus), on intestinal epithelial cells, and in the  lumen of kidney-collecting tubules. The distribution of CD157 antigen on leukocytes and stromal cells of lymphoid organs suggests that it may be involved in leukocyte-stroma interactions which support the development, migration, and/or responses of leukocyte populations.

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.
