BV421 Rat Anti-Mouse CX3CR1

Multicolor flow cytometric analysis of CX3CR1 expression on mouse splenocytes. C57BL/6 mouse splenocytes were preincubated with Purified Rat Anti-Mouse CD16/CD32 antibody (Mouse BD Fc Block™) (Cat. No. 553141/553142), then stained with Alexa Fluor™ 647 Rat Anti-Mouse CD11b (Cat. No. 557686) and either BD Horizon™ BV421 Rat IgG2a, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 562602; Left Plot) or BD Horizon™ BV421 Rat Anti-Mouse CX3CR1 antibody (Cat. No. 567531; Right Plot) at 0.125 μg/test. Bivariate pseudocolor density plots showing the correlated expression of CX3CR1 versus CD11b (or Ig Isotype control staining) were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact cells. Flow cytometric analysis was performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ X-20 Cell Analyzer System equipped with a Blue Laser. Data shown on this Technical Data Sheet are not lot specific.

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 unconjugated antibody and free dye were 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.

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant™ dyes 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. 563794/566349) or the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer Plus (Cat. No. 566385).

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer should be used anytime BD Horizon Brilliant™ dyes are used in a multicolor flow cytometry panel.  Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation.  The BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions. When BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer is used in in the multicolor panel, it should also be used in the corresponding compensation controls for all dyes to achieve the most accurate compensation. For the most accurate compensation, compensation controls created with either cells or beads should be exposed to BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer for the same length of time as the corresponding multicolor panel. More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794/566349) or the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer Plus (Cat. No. 566385).

Z8-50

The Z8-50.23 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes the mouse CX3C chemokine receptor 1 (CX3CR1), which is also known as Fractalkine receptor, G protein-coupled receptor 13 (GPR13), or GPRV28 (V28). CX3CR1 is an ~40 kDa, seven-transmembrane G protein-coupled receptor that is expressed on monocytes, activated macrophages, NK cells, a subset of memory T cells, dendritic cells (DC), and mast cells. CX3CR1 is a receptor for the CX3C chemokine, CX3CL1, which is also known as fractalkine or neurotactin. CX3CL1 is expressed on activated endothelial cells, neurons, and astrocytes. CX3CR1 plays a role in leucocyte adhesion and extravasation from blood vessels during inflammation.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max near 407 nm and Em Max near 421 nm, BD Horizon™ BV421 can be excited by the violet laser (405 nm) and detected with a 450/50 nm filter. BD Horizon™ BV421 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue™ conjugates. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, BD Horizon™ BV421, Pacific Blue™, and BD Horizon™ V450 cannot be used simultaneously.

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.
