BD Pharmingen™
Human, Mouse (QC Testing)
Mouse IgG2a, κ
Human N-terminal BLNK Recombinant Protein
Western blot (Routinely Tested), Intracellular staining (flow cytometry) (Reported)
68, 70 kDa
0.5 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. Store undiluted at 4°C.

Recommended Assay Procedures

This purified antibody is routinely tested by western blot. Lysates from Raji B cells (ATCC CCL-86) are recommended as a positive control. We recommend the conjugated antibody formats PE, Alexa 488, and Alexa 647 (Cat. nos. 558688, 558693, and 558692, respectively) for intracellular staining with flow cytometric analysis.

Product Notices

  1. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  2. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  3. 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.

B cell activation is initiated by crosslinking the B cell receptor, which leads to activation of non-receptor protein tyrosine kinases (PTK), including Btk, Syk, and three Src kinases, Fyn, Lyn, and Blk.  Activated PTKs then phosphorylate multiple cellular proteins involved in B lymphocyte signaling.  Syk is responsible for the tyrosine phosphorylation of B cell linker protein (BLNK), a member of the SLP-76 family of adapter proteins.  Phosphorylation of human BLNK at tyrosines 84, 178, and 189 (Y84, Y178, and Y189) creates docking sites for PLCγ2, leading to the activation of downstream signaling pathways.  

The 2B11 monoclonal antibody recognizes BLNK, regardless of phosphorylation status. A fusion protein representing amino acids 4-205 of human BLNK was used as the immunogen. BLNK is expressed as two phosphoproteins migrating at 68 and 70 kDa in SDS/PAGE that represent alternatively spliced forms of human BLNK.

Down Arrow Up Arrow
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
