R718 Mouse Anti-Human CD25

Multicolor flow cytometric analysis of CD25 expression on unstimulated peripheral blood lymphocytes. Human whole blood was stained with BD Horizon™ BUV395 Mouse Anti-Human CD4 antibody (Cat. No. 564724) and either BD Horizon™ R718 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 566928; Left Plot) or BD Horizon™ R718 Mouse Anti-Human CD25 antibody (Cat. No. 567575/567576; Right Plot). Erythrocytes were lysed with BD FACS™ Lysing Solution (Cat. No. 349202). The bivariate pseudocolor density plots showing the correlated expression of CD25 (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus CD4 were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact lymphocytes. Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ X-20 Cell Analyzer System and FlowJo™ software.

Cells were stained with BD Horizon™ R718 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (dashed line histogram) or BD Horizon™ R718 Mouse Anti-Human CD25 (solid line histogram). Fluorescent histograms showing CD25 expression (or Ig Isotype control staining) was derived from gated events with light-scatter characteristics of viable (DAPI-negative) lymphoblasts.

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 and unreacted dye was removed.

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.

BC96

The BC96 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to human CD25, the low-affinity alpha subunit of the Interleukin-2 Receptor (IL-2Rα), which is also known as TAC antigen. IL2RA encodes CD25 which is a 55 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein comprised of an extracellular region with two Complement Control Protein domains (CCP) followed by a transmembrane region and a short cytoplasmic tail. CD25 is constitutively expressed at high levels on natural T regulatory cells and variably expressed on conventional T cells and B cells and their precursors, NK cells, monocytes, and macrophages. CD25 expression can be highly upregulated upon antigenic or mitogenic stimulation of T cells or B cells. A soluble form of CD25 is found in biological fluids due to proteolytic cleavage of the extracellular region of transmembrane CD25. CD25 noncovalently associates with CD122 (IL-2Rβ chain) and CD132 (IL-2Rγ, also known as the common γ chain or γc) to form the high-affinity signal-transducing IL-2R complex (IL-2Rαβγ).  This heterotrimeric receptor mediates biological activities of IL-2 which can act as a cellular activation, growth, and differentiation factor and regulator of cell viability. Analysis of CD25 expression can be used to characterize the nature of normal leucocytes in their resting states or activated during inflammatory or immune responses as well as those present in certain disease states.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ Red 718, which has been developed exclusively by for BD Biosciences as a better alternative to Alexa Fluor™ 700. BD Horizon™ Red 718 can be excited by the red laser (628 – 640 nm) and, with an Em Max around 718 nm, it can be detected using a 730/45 nm filter. Due to similar excitation and emission properties, we do not recommend using R718 in combination with APC-R700 or Alexa Fluor™ 700.

R718
The BD Horizon™ Red 718 (R718) Dye is part of the BD red family of dyes. It is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 695-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 718-nm. Driven by BD innovation, R718 is designed to be excited by the red laser (627–640-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 720-nm (e.g., a 720/40-nm bandpass filter). R718 is a brighter alternative to Alexa Fluor™ 700. R718 is also a bright small molecule alternative to APC-R700 with lower spread into the APC detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
