APC-Cy™7 Hamster Anti-Mouse TCR β Chain
APC-Cy™7 Hamster Anti-Mouse TCR β Chain

Flow cytometric analysis of the T-cell receptor (TcR) β-chain on mouse splenocytes. Splenocytes from C57BL/6 mice were stained with either a APC-Cy™7  Hamster IgG2, λ1 isotype control (Cat. No. 560604; shaded) or with the APC-Cy™7 Hamster Anti-Mouse TcR β-chain antibody (Cat. No. 560656; unshaded; left panel). Splenocytes from C57BL/6 mice were stained with both a PE Rat Anti-Mouse CD4 antibody (Cat. No. 553049) and a PE Rat Anti-Mouse CD8a antibody (Cat. No. 553033) in conjunction with either a APC-Cy™7 Hamster IgG2, λ1 isotype control (middle panel) or the APC-Cy™7 Hamster Anti-Mouse TcR β-chain antibody (right panel). Histograms and dot plots were derived from gated events based on light scattering characteristics for splenocytes.  Flow cytometry was performed on a BD™ LSR II flow cytometry 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 APC-Cy7 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free APC-Cy7 were removed.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  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. Warning: Some APC-Cy7 and PE-Cy7 conjugates show changes in their emission spectrum with prolonged exposure to formaldehyde. If you are unable to analyze fixed samples within four hours, we recommend that you use BD™ Stabilizing Fixative (Cat. No. 338036).
  5. Please observe the following precautions: Absorption of visible light can significantly alter the energy transfer occurring in any tandem fluorochrome conjugate; therefore, we recommend that special precautions be taken (such as wrapping vials, tubes, or racks in aluminum foil) to prevent exposure of conjugated reagents, including cells stained with those reagents, to room illumination.
  6. Although hamster immunoglobulin isotypes have not been well defined, BD Biosciences Pharmingen has grouped Armenian and Syrian hamster IgG monoclonal antibodies according to their reactivity with a panel of mouse anti-hamster IgG mAbs. A table of the hamster IgG groups, Reactivity of Mouse Anti-Hamster Ig mAbs, may be viewed at http://www.bdbiosciences.com/documents/hamster_chart_11x17.pdf.
  7. APC-Cy7 tandem fluorochrome emission is collected in a detector for fluorescence wavelengths of 750 nm and higher.
  8. APC-Cy7 is a tandem fluorochrome composed of Allophycocyanin (APC), which is excited by laser lines between 595 and 647 nm and serves as an energy donor, coupled to the cyanine dye Cy7™, which acts as an energy acceptor and fluoresces at 780 nm. BD Biosciences Pharmingen has maximized the fluorochrome energy transfer in APC-Cy7, thus maximizing its fluorescence emission intensity, minimizing residual emission from APC, and minimizing required electronic compensation in multilaser-laser flow cytometry systems. Note: Although every effort is made to minimize the lot-to-lot variation in residual emission from APC, it is strongly recommended that every lot be tested for differences in the amount of compensation required and that individual compensation controls are run for each APC-Cy7 conjugate.

H57-597

The H57-597 antibody reacts with a common epitope of the β chain of the T-cell Receptor (TCR) complex on αβ TCR-expressing thymocytes, peripheral T lymphocytes, NK1.1+ thymocytes, and NK-T cells of all mouse strains tested. It does not react with γδ TCR-bearing T cells. In the fetal and adult thymus, the TCR β-chain may form homodimers or pair with the pre-TCR α-chain on the surface of immature thymocytes before TCR α-chain expression. Plate-bound or soluble H57-597 antibody activates αβ TCR-bearing T cells, and plate-bound mAb can induce apoptotic death.

APC-Cy7
APC-Cy7 dye is a part of the BD APC red family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a Allophycocyanin (APC) donor that has excitation maxima (Ex Max) of 651 nm and an acceptor dye, Cy™7, with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 779 nm. APC-Cy7 can be excited by the Red (627-640 nm) laser and detected using an optical filter centered near 780 nm (e.g., a 760/60 nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
