The B-K29 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD262 which is also known as, TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand receptor 2 (TRAIL Receptor 2, TRAIL-R2), Death receptor 5 (DR5), TRICK2, or KILLER. CD262 is a type I transmembrane protein that is encoded by TNFRSF10B (Tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily, member 10b). CD262 forms a homotrimeric receptor complex that can bind homotrimeric TRAIL (CD253/APO-2 Ligand) and transduce apoptotic signals intracellularly through its cytoplasmic death domain (DD). CD262 is differentially expressed on cells from a wide variety of normal tissues and tumors. CD262 expression is upregulated by Interferon-α (IFN-α).
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV510 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 405-nm and Em Max at 510-nm, BD Horizon BV510 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the BD Horizon V500 (525/50-nm) filter set. BD Horizon BV510 conjugates are useful for the detection of dim markers off the violet laser.
