FITC Rat anti-SSEA-3
FITC Rat anti-SSEA-3

Flow cytometric analysis of FITC Rat Anti-SSEA-3 on H9 cells.   H9 human embryonic stem (ES) cells (WiCell, Madison, WI) were stained with either FITC Rat Anti-SSEA-3 (solid line) or FITC rat IgM (R4-22) isotype control (Cat. No. 553942, dashed line), incubated in the dark for 20 minutes at room temperature and analyzed by flow cytometry. Flow cytometry was performed on a BD FACSCalibur™ System.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze. 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.

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).
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  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.
  4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  5. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.

MC-631

The MC-631 monoclonal antibody reacts with Stage-Specific Embryonic Antigen-3 (SSEA-3), a carbohydrate epitope on the major ganglioside, but not the neutral glycolipid, of mouse embryos and human teratocarcinoma cells.  As its name implies, the expression of SSEA-3 is stage-specific and can be used to characterize embryonic cells and monitor their differentiation.  However, its expression pattern differs between human and mouse.  In the human, SSEA-3 is found on teratocarcinoma (embryonal carcinoma or EC), embryonic inner cell mass (ICM), embryonic stem (ES) cells, and erythrocytes.  As human stem cells undergo differentiation, SSEA-3 expression diminishes.  In the mouse, SSEA-3 is found on oocytes, ova, zygotes, early cleavage-stage embryos, early blastocysts, ICM, primitive endoderm, and adult kidneys, but not on EC or ES cells.

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.
