Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse anti-MAP2B
Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse anti-MAP2B

Analysis of MAP2B in H9 cells. H9 human embryonic stem (ES) cells (WiCell, Madison, WI) were differentiated into Neural Precursor cells (NPCs) and grown for 4 passages before differentiating into neurons and glia for 12 days. The cells were fixed (BD Cytofix™ buffer, Cat. No. 554655) for 20 minutes at room temperature, permeabilized with

BD™ Phosflow Perm Buffer I (Cat. No. 557885), and then stained with either Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse anti-MAP2B (solid line) or Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse IgG1 κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 557732, dashed line).  This antibody also works in BD™ PhosFlow Perm Buffer II or III (Cat. No. 558052 or 558050, respectively). Flow cytometry was performed on a BD FACSCanto™ II flow cytometry system.

Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 was removed. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

Product Notices

  1. 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).

  3. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  4. Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for allophycocyanin (APC).
  5. The Alexa Fluor®, Pacific Blue™, and Cascade Blue® dye antibody conjugates in this product are sold under license from Molecular Probes, Inc. for research use only, excluding use in combination with microarrays, or as analyte specific reagents. The Alexa Fluor® dyes (except for Alexa Fluor® 430), Pacific Blue™ dye, and Cascade Blue® dye are covered by pending and issued patents.

18/MAP2B

Microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs) play a crucial role in the development and morphology of neurons. MAP2, specifically localized in dendrites, has four known isoforms that are produced by alternative splicing of the transcript and are expressed at various stages of neuronal development. MAP2B is a 280-kDa protein that is expressed throughout brain development. It contains functional domains that interact with the regulatory subunit of the cAMP-dependent kinase II and microtubules.  Experimental monitoring of its presence, along with GFAP and nestin, may be utilized to quantify neuronal development.

Alexa Fluor™ 647
Alexa Fluor™ 647 Dye is part of the BD red family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 653-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 669-nm. Alexa Fluor 647 is designed to be excited by the Red laser (627-640 nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520-nm (e.g., a 660/20 nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
