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 BD Horizon BV421 under optimal conditions that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.

Recommended Assay Procedures

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes (including BD OptiBuild Brilliant reagents) are used in the same experiment.  Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation.  The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions.  More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794).

Product Notices

  1. This antibody was developed for use in flow cytometry.
  2. The production process underwent stringent testing and validation to assure that it generates a high-quality conjugate with consistent performance and specific binding activity. However, verification testing has not been performed on all conjugate lots.
  3. Researchers should determine the optimal concentration of this reagent for their individual applications.
  4. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  5. 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.

8C12

The 8C12 antibody recognizes an epitope present on the 190-kDa complement  receptor protein, originally designated CR1 (CD35), but not the 145-150-kDa CR2 (CD21) molecule.  Unlike the human system, in which these proteins are products of independent genes, both of these mouse receptors are membrane  proteins resulting from the alternative splicing of mRNA transcribed from the Cr2 gene.  Therefore, an alternative nomenclature has been proposed, designating the proteins Cr2-190 (CD21b) and Cr2-145 (CD21a), respectively.  The epitope recognized by 8C12 mAb is only present on CD35/CD21b.   Moreover, it has also been proposed that Crry is the true mouse genetic homologue of human CR1 (CD35).  In the mouse, CD35 is expressed on the majority of peripheral B cells, on the majority of resident peritoneal macrophages, on peripheral blood granulocytes after treatment with N-formyl-Met-Leu-Phe, and on follicular dendritic cells, but not on thymocytes, T cells, erythrocytes, or platelets.  In addition, it has not been detected, at the protein or mRNA level, in the macrophage cell line J774, bone marrow-derived macrophages, or thioglycollate-elicited peritoneal macrophages.  The 8C12 mAb has been reported to inhibit rosette formation by C3bbearing sheep erythrocytes,  to block the complement-dependent trapping of immune complexes by follicular dendritic cells,  and to down-regulate mouse CD35 expression upon in vivo application,  inhibiting only some primary antibody responses to immunization.  B lymphocytes of Cr2[null] mice display impaired humoral immune responses in vivo.  The 8C12 mAb recognizes an epitope on mouse CD35 distinct from the epitope recognized by anti-mouse CD21/CD35 mAb 7G6, and it does not block binding by 7G6 mAb to CD35.

*Please note that the isotype of 8C12 mAb was originally reported to be Rat IgG2c. Further investigations have demonstrated that the isotype of 8C12 mAb is Rat IgG2a.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max at 421-nm, BD Horizon BV421 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the standard Pacific Blue™ filter set (eg, 450/50-nm filter). BD Horizon BV421 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue conjugates.

BV421
The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 421 (BV421) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This polymer-technology based dye has an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 407-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 423-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BV421 is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 420-nm (e.g., a 431/28-nm or 450/50-nm bandpass filter). BV421 is an ideal alternative for V450 as it is approximately ten times brighter with less spillover into the BV510/V500 detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
