RY586 Mouse Anti-Human CD8
RY586 Mouse Anti-Human CD8
Multiparameter flow cytometric analysis of CD8 expression on human peripheral blood leucocyte populations. Human whole blood was stained with either BD Horizon™ RY586 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 568097; Left Plot) or BD Horizon™ RY586 Mouse Anti-Human CD8 antibody (Cat. No. 568114/568115; Right Plot). The erythrocytes were lysed with BD FACS™ Lysing Solution (Cat. No. 349202). The bivariate pseudocolor density plot showing CD8 expression (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus side light scatter signals (SSC) was derived from events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact leucocytes. Flow cytometric analysis was performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ Cell Analyzer and FlowJo™ software.​

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.

Product Notices

  1. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  2. 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.
  3. 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).
  4. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.

  6. Please refer to http://regdocs.bd.com to access safety data sheets (SDS).
  7. Human donor specific background has been observed in relation to the presence of anti-polyethylene glycol (PEG) antibodies, developed as a result of certain vaccines containing PEG, including some COVID-19 vaccines. We recommend use of BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer in your experiments to help mitigate potential background.

RPA-T8

The RPA-T8 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD8 alpha (CD8α). CD8α is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein and a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. CD8α is expressed by the majority of thymocytes, by subpopulations of  αβ T cells and γδ T cells and by some NK cells. Cell surface CD8α is expressed either as a disulfide-linked homodimer (CD8αα) or as a heterodimer (CD8αβ) when disulfide-bonded to a CD8 beta chain (CD8β). CD8-positive αβ T cells coexpress both CD8αα homodimers and CD8αβ heterodimers whereas some γδ T cells and NK cells express CD8αα homodimers.  CD8 plays important roles in T cell activation and selection. The extracellular IgSF domain of CD8α binds to a non-polymorphic determinant on HLA class I molecules (α3 domain) and enables CD8 to function as a co-receptor with MHC class I-restricted TCR during T cell recognition of antigen. The cytoplasmic domain of CD8α associates with Lck, a Src family protein tyrosine kinase that is involved in intracellular signaling. The RPA-T8 and HIT8a monoclonal antibodies are not cross-blocking.  This clone has been reported to react with a subset of peripheral blood lymphocytes, but not monocytes nor granuloyctes, of baboon and both rhesus and cynomolgus macaque monkey. In general, a higher frequency of CD8+ and CD4+CD8+ lymphocytes are observed in non-human primates compared to normal human donors.

The BD Horizon RealYellow™ 586 (RY586) Dye is part of the BD family of yellow-green dyes. It is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 565-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 586-nm. Driven by BD innovation, RY586 can be used on both spectral and conventional cytometers and is designed to be excited by the Yellow-Green laser (561-nm) with minimal excitation by the 488-nm Blue laser. For conventional instruments equipped with a Yellow-Green laser (561-nm), RY586 can be used as an alternative to PE and we recommend using an optical filter centered near 586-nm (eg, a 586/15-nm bandpass filter). For spectral instruments equipped with a Yellow-Green laser (561-nm), it can be used in conjunction with PE. Compared to PE, RY586 is similar in brightness, minimal spillover into Blue detectors, and increased spillover into the 610/20-nm (PE-CF594) detector. Please ensure that your instrument configuration (lasers and optical filters) is appropriate for this dye.
