Alexa Fluor™ 647 Mouse Anti-Human HLA-DR
Alexa Fluor™ 647 Mouse Anti-Human HLA-DR

Multiparameter flow cytometric analysis of HLA-DR expression on human peripheral blood leucocyte populations. Whole blood was stained with either Alexa Fluor™ 647 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 565571; Left Plot) or Alexa Fluor™ 647 Mouse Anti-Human HLA-DR antibody (Cat. No. 567655/567656; Right Plot). Erythrocytes were lysed with BD FACS Lysing Solution (Cat. No. 349202). A bivariate pseudocolor density plot showing the correlated expression of HLA-DR (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus side-light scatter (SSC-A) signals was derived from gated events with the forward and side-light scatter characteristics of intact leucocyte populations. Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ X-20 Cell Analyzer System and FlowJo™ software.

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 to the dye under optimum conditions and unreacted dye was removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

BD® CompBeads can be used as surrogates to assess fluorescence spillover (Compensation). When fluorochrome conjugated antibodies are bound to BD® CompBeads, they have spectral properties very similar to cells.  However, for some fluorochromes there can be small differences in spectral emissions compared to cells, resulting in spillover values that differ when compared to biological controls. It is strongly recommended that when using a reagent for the first time, users compare the spillover on cells and BD® CompBeads to ensure that BD® CompBeads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

Product Notices

  1. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  2. Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for allophycocyanin (APC).
  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. 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).
  5. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  6. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  7. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.

L203.rMAb

The L203.rMab is a recombinant monoclonal antibody that was derived from L203 hybridoma cells. The L203.rMab specifically recognizes a monomorphic epitope on the extracellular region of human HLA-DR antigens which are human Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) Class II antigens. HLA-DR antigens are heterodimers comprised of two different type I transmembrane glycoproteins that are noncovalently-associated. The ~34 kDa HLA-DR alpha (HLA-DRα) chain is encoded by HLA-DRA whereas the ~28 kDa HLA-DR beta (HLA-DRβ) chains are encoded by one of the 4 different HLA-DRB loci (HLA-DRB1,3,4,5) that are located within the Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) Complex of chromosome 6. Each chain is comprised of an extracellular region with an IgSF domain, followed by a transmembrane sequence and a short cytoplasmic tail. The L203.rMab antibody recognizes a common determinant that is dependent on the association of HLA-DR alpha and beta chains. HLA-DR is variably expressed on B cells, activated T cells and NK cells, monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells (DC), Langerhans cells, thymic epithelial cells, and tumor cell lines including B cell lines, myelomas, and some myeloid leukemias. HLA-DR functions in the presentation of peptide antigens to CD4+ T lymphocytes in the generation and regulation of adaptive immune responses. HLA-DR expressed on thymic stromal cells plays a key role in the positive and negative selection of CD4+ T cells during thymopoiesis. Certain HLA-DR alleles, polymorphisms or aberrant expression patterns are associated with susceptibility to diseases including autoimmunity and cancer. L203 antibody binding is reportedly blocked by the L243 monoclonal antibody suggesting that the two antibodies recognize crossreactive or spatially related determinants on HLA-DR.

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.
