Preparation And Storage

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

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  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.

HIS57

The HIS57 monoclonal antibody reacts with an unknown antigen that is highly expressed by most marginal zone B (MZ-B) cells in the spleen. In contrast, this antigen is weakly expressed, or not expressed at all, by other B-cell subpopulations. Rat MZ-B cells express low levels of CD45R (mAb HIS24) and sIgD and high levels of sIgM. The HIS57 mAb does not stain granulocytes and thymocytes. Immunohistochemical staining of normal spleen sections with HIS57 mAb produced a positive signal in the marginal zone and, to a lesser extent, in B-cell follicles. This marker can be used in combination with CD45R, sIgD, and sIgM t0 identify MZ-B cells in the rat.

FITC
Fluorescein (FITC) is part of the BD blue family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 494-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 518-nm. FITC is designed to be excited by the Blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520 nm (e.g., a 530/30-nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
