Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. Store undiluted at 4°C.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  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.

2-69

The 2-69 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to 2B4 which is also known as CD244. CD244 is an approximately 63-70 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein. It is a SLAM submember (SLAMF4) and CD2 family member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. CD244 was originally identified in the mouse as a non-MHC-restricted cytotoxicity mediator present on NK cells and CD8+ T cells. In humans, CD244 is expressed on NK cells, γδ T cells, subsets of effector and memory CD8+ T cells, monocytes, eosinophils and basophils. This expression pattern suggests a broad role for CD244 in the regulation of leukocyte activation. CD244 binds CD48 with high affinity. CD244 may serve both stimulatory and inhibitory functions depending on a number of factors. These include the intensity and duration of CD244 interactions with its ligands as well as the presence of other signals generated through different receptor-ligand interactions. 2B4 was clustered as CD244 in the VIIth HLDA workshop.

This antibody is routinely tested by flow cytometric analysis. Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

Purified
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
