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 BV510 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.
  6. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.

ACK45

The ACK45 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD117 (c-Kit), a transmembrane tyrosine-kinase receptor which is encoded by the Kit gene (formerly dominant white spotting, W). The c-Kit ligand (also known as steel factor, stem cell factor, and mast-cell growth factor) encoded by the Kitl gene (formerly steel, Sl), is a co-mitogen for hematopoietic stem cells and the myeloerythroid progenitors and a mast-cell differentiation factor. The Kit[W] and Kitl[Sl] mutant alleles have similar pleiotropic effects on the development of melanocytes, germ cells, and the hematopoietic system. In the adult bone marrow, CD117 is expressed on hematopoietic progenitor cells, including the CD90 (Thy-1)[lo] TER-119[-] CD45R/B220[-] CD11b (Mac-1)[-] Ly-6G (Gr-1)[-] CD4[-] CD8[-] Sca-1 (Ly-6A/E)[+] multipotent hematopoietic stem cells, progenitors committed to myeloid and/or erythroid lineages, and precursors of B and T lymphocytes. This widespread expression of CD117 in hematopoietic precursors is consistent with the participation of c-Kit and its ligand in the regulation of several hematopoietic lineages. Intrathymic expression of c-Kit and c-Kit ligand suggest that CD117 is also involved in the regulation of some events during the development of T lymphocytes. CD117 is also expressed by mast cells. The expression of CD117 has been included in protocols to isolate hematopoietic progenitors from fetal and adult peripheral blood. The specificity and functional activity of mAb ACK45 is very similar to that of the published antibody ACK22; it is reported to block the action of c-Kit in vitro and in vivo.

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.

BV510
The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 510 (BV510) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This polymer-technology based dye with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 327-nm / 405-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 512-nm. BV510, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 510-nm (e.g., a 525/50 bandpass filter). The dye can be excited by the UV (355-nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and spillover. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
