R718 Rat Anti-Mouse CD71

Multicolor flow cytometric analysis of CD71 expression on mouse bone marrow cells. BALB/c mouse bone marrow cells were preincubated with Purified Rat Anti-Mouse CD16/CD32 antibody (Mouse BD Fc Block™) (Cat. No. 553141/553142). The cells were then stained with BD Horizon™ BUV395 Rat anti-Mouse TER-119/Erythroid Cells antibody (Cat. No. 563827/566206) and either BD Horizon™ R718 Rat IgG2a, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 566941; Left Plot) or BD Horizon™ R718 Rat Anti-Mouse CD71 antibody (Cat. No. 567257; Right Plot) at 0.5 μg/test. 7-AAD (7-Amino-Actinomycin D) Solution (Cat. No. 559925) was added to the cells right before analysis. The bivariate pseudocolor density plot showing CD71 expression (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus TER-119 was derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable (7-AAD-negative) cells. Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD Fortessa™ 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 CompBead 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.

RI7217

The RI7217 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes the mouse Transferrin Receptor (TfR, Trfr, or TR), which is also known as Transferrin Receptor protein 1 (TfR1), CD71, and Mammary tumor virus receptor 1 (Mtvr-1 or Mtvr1). CD71 is a ~95-kDa single-pass type II transmembrane glycoprotein that is encoded by Tfrc and expressed on the cell surface as a disulfide-linked homodimer. The CD71 monomer is comprised of an extracellular C-terminal domain with a transferrin binding site followed by a transmembrane region and an N-terminal cytoplasmic tail that is involved in mediating the endocytosis and recycling of the receptor. This receptor mediates cellular iron uptake via endocytosis of an iron-transferrin complex followed by the recycling of transferrin and the receptor to the cell surface. CD71 is lowly expressed on most nonactivated cells including resting B and T lymphocytes. CD71 expression is upregulated on activated and proliferating cells such as mitogen- or antigen-stimulated B cells and T cells as well as some tumor cells. CD71 is variably expressed on erythroid precursors from pronormoblasts (proerythroblasts) to reticulocytes and is absent on mature red blood cells. CD71 is expressed on erythroid precursors that utilize iron for heme synthesis. CD71 can also serve as an entry receptor for several viral infections including those caused by Mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV). The RI7217 antibody can reportedly be used to inhibit cellular proliferation.

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.
