R718 Mouse Anti-Human CD1d
R718 Mouse Anti-Human CD1d

Multiparameter flow cytometric analysis of CD1d expression on different human peripheral blood leucocyte populations. Whole blood was stained with FITC Mouse Anti-Human CD19 antibody (Cat. No. 555412/560994; Bottom Plots) and with either BD Horizon™ R718 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 566928; Left Plots) or BD Horizon™ R718 Mouse Anti-Human CD1d antibody (Cat. No. 567984/567985; Right Plots). Erythrocytes were lysed with BD FACS Lysing Solution (Cat. No. 349202). Bivariate pseudocolor density plots showing the correlated expression of CD1d (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus side-light scatter (SSC-A) signals (Top Plots) or CD19 (Bottom Plots) were derived from gated events with the forward and side-light scatter characteristics of intact leucocyte populations. Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ Cell Analyzer System and FlowJo™ software.

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 unreacted dye was 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 CompBead to ensure that BD CompBeads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

CD1d42

The CD1d42 monoclonal antibody recognizes CD1d. Cell surface CD1d is structurally homologous to Class I MHC molecules. It consists of a glycosylated type I transmembrane α chain (43-49 kDa) that is non-covalently associated with β2-microglobulin. CD1d is a member of the CD1 family of molecules, which belong to the immunoglobulin superfamily. Sequence homology data classifies the CD1 molecules into two groups. Group 1 includes CD1a, CD1b and CD1c molecules; group 2 includes CD1d molecules and their homologs in other species. CD1d is expressed on cortical thymocytes, B cells, dendritic cells, monocytes, and some nonlymphoid cells including intestinal epithelial cells, hepatocytes and keratinocytes. It is not expressed on resting mature T cells. Studies suggest that CD1d participates in lipid antigen presentation to CD1d-restricted NKT cells.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon Red 718, which has been developed exclusively for BD Biosciences as a better alternative to Alexa Fluor® 700. BD Horizon Red 718 can be excited by the red laser (628 – 640 nm) and, with an Em Max around 718 nm, it can be detected using a 730/45 nm filter. Due to similar excitation and emission properties, we do not recommend using R718 in combination with APC-R700 or Alexa Fluor® 700.

R718
The BD Horizon™ Red 718 (R718) Dye is part of the BD red family of dyes. It is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 695-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 718-nm. Driven by BD innovation, R718 is designed to be excited by the red laser (627–640-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 720-nm (e.g., a 720/40-nm bandpass filter). R718 is a brighter alternative to Alexa Fluor™ 700. R718 is also a bright small molecule alternative to APC-R700 with lower spread into the APC detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
