R718 Rat Anti-Mouse CD273 (PD-L2)
R718 Rat Anti-Mouse CD273 (PD-L2)

Multicolor flow cytometric analysis of CD273 (PD-L2) expression on mouse splenic dendritic cells. BALB/c mouse splenic leucocytes were cultured overnight with Recombinant Mouse GM-CSF protein (Cat. No. 554586; 5 ng/ml). The cells were harvested and preincubated with Purified Rat Anti-Mouse CD16/CD32 antibody (Mouse BD Fc Block™) (Cat. No. 553141/553142). The cells were then stained with FITC Hamster Anti-Mouse CD11c antibody (Cat. No. 561045/553801/557400) and either BD Horizon™ R718 Rat IgG2a, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 566941; Left Plot) or BD Horizon™ R718 Rat Anti-Mouse CD273 (PD-L2) antibody (Cat. No. 567468; Right Plot) at 0.5 μg/test. DAPI (4',6-Diamidino-2-Phenylindole, Dihydrochloride) Solution (Cat. No. 564907) was added to cells right before analysis. The bivariate pseudocolor density plot showing the correlated expression of CD273 (PD-L2) [or Ig Isotype control staining] versus CD11c was derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable (DAPI-negative) splenic leucocytes. Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ Cell Analyzer System and FlowJo™ software. Data shown on this Technical Data Sheet are not lot specific.

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 CompBeads to ensure that BD® CompBeads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  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.

MIH37

The MIH37 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes Programmed cell death 1 ligand 2 (PD-L2) which is also known as CD273 and Butyrophilin B7-DC (B7-DC). This regulatory molecule is a 42-kDa type I membrane glycoprotein encoded by Pdcd1lg2 which belongs to the B7 family of the Ig superfamily. CD273 (PD-L2)  is comprised of an extracellular region with an N-terminal IgV-like domain followed by an IgC2-type domain, a transmembrane sequence, and a cytoplasmic tail. Although not detected on resting leucocytes, its expression is upregulated upon activation of macrophages and dendritic cells (DC) by a variety of stimulatory factors including IL-4, IL-13, or GM-CSF. CD273 (PD-L2) serves as a ligand for the coinhibitory receptor, CD279 (PD-1), a receptor that likewise binds to the CD274 (PD-L1) ligand. CD273 (PD-L2) also binds to Repulsive guidance molecule b (RGMb) that is expressed by T cells, macrophages, neutrophils, and DC. RGMb may associate with other receptors that transduce costimulatory or coinhibitory signals. The MIH37 antibody reportedly blocks the binding of CD273 (PB-L2) to its receptors, CD279 (PD-1) or RGMb and can inhibit antigen-specific T cell responses and hapten-induced contact hypersensitivity reactions. The TY25 monoclonal antibody reportedly binds with lower affinity near or at the same mouse CD273 (PD-L2) epitope recognized by the MIH37 antibody.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ Red 718, which has been developed exclusively by 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.
