The 10.1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD64, a 72 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is a high affinity receptor for human IgG (FcγRI), especially the IgG1 and IgG3 subclasses. CD64 is expressed on monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, granulocytes activated with interferon-gamma and early myeloid lineage cells. CD64 associates with a signaling FcRγ homodimer to form the functional high affinity FcγRI complex. CD64 functions in both innate and adaptive immune responses and mediates endocytosis, phagocytosis, antigen presentation, antibody-dependent cellular toxicity, cytokine release and superoxide generation.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BUV615 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome with an Ex Max near 350 nm and an Em Max near 615 nm. BD Horizon Brilliant BUV615 can be excited by the ultraviolet laser (355 nm) and detected with a 610/20 filter and a 595 nm LP. Due to the excitation of the acceptor dye by the blue/yellow-green laser line, there may be significant spillover into channels detecting PE-CF594 like emissions (eg, 610/20-nm filter).
