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 that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.

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.

Product Notices

  1. Researchers should determine the optimal concentration of this reagent for their individual applications.
  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. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  4. 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.

JS-81

The JS-81 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD81, which is also known as, Target of the antiproliferative antibody 1 (TAPA1, TAPA-1), or Tetraspanin-28 (Tspan-28/TSPAN28). CD81 is an ~26 kDa transmembrane protein that belongs to the tetraspanin (TM4SF) family. It is involved in cell growth and signal transduction. CD81 has a very broad cellular distribution, being expressed on cells of hematopoietic, neuroectodermal and mesenchymal origin. In hematopoietic cells, the CD81 antigen is expressed on B and T lymphocytes, NK cells, thymocytes, eosinophils, germinal center follicular dendritic cells, and to a variable extent on monocytes. The CD81 antigen is not expressed on neutrophils, platelets, or erythrocytes. CD81-specific antibodies have been shown to have anti-proliferative effects on different lymphoid cell lines, particularly those derived from large cell lymphomas. They are also reported to induce homotypic cell aggregation. Immunoprecipitation studies reveal that CD81 is a component of a multimolecular complex of CD19, CD21, and CD225 that is involved in the activation and control of B cell growth.

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.
