The HIB22 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD22. CD22 is a 130-140 kDa glycosylated type I integral membrane protein present on the surface of mature B cells. CD22 is expressed in the cytoplasm of virtually all B cells except plasma cells. CD45RO antigen on T cells and CD75 antigen on B cells have been identified as ligands for CD22. CD22 has been reported to participate in B-cell activation and also as an adhesion molecule. Although the immunobiology of this antigen has not been fully elucidated, reports indicate that ligation of CD22 induces constitutive internalization of the molecule followed by complete degradation.
The antibody was conjugated to an oligonucleotide that contains an antibody clone-specific barcode (ABC) flanked by a poly-A tail on the 3' end and a PCR handle (PCR primer binding site) on the 5' end. The ABC for this antibody was designed to be used with other BD AbSeq oligonucleotides conjugated to other antibodies. All AbSeq ABC sequences were selected in silico to be unique from human and mouse genomes, have low predicted secondary structure, and have high Hamming distance within the BD AbSeq portfolio, to allow for sequencing error correction and unique mapping. The poly-A tail of the oligonucleotide allows the ABC to be captured by the BD Rhapsody™ system. The 5' PCR handle allows for efficient sequencing library generation for Illumina sequencing platforms.
NOTE: The BD Rhapsody Single-Cell Analysis System must be used with the BD Rhapsody Express Instrument.
