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 and conjugated to BD AbSeq oligonucleotide under optimal conditions.

Recommended Assay Procedures

Put all BD AbSeq Reagents to be pooled into a Latch Rack for 500 µL Tubes (Thermo Fisher Scientific Cat. No. 4900). Arrange the tubes so that they can be easily uncapped and re-capped with an 8-Channel Screw Cap Tube Capper (Thermo Fisher Scientific Cat. No. 4105MAT) and the reagents aliquoted with a multi-channel pipette.

BD AbSeq tubes should be centrifuged for ≥ 30 seconds at 400 × g to ensure removal of any content in the cap/tube threads prior to the first opening.

Product Notices

  1. This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended volume per test. Typical use is 2 µl for 1 × 10^6 cells in a 200-µl staining reaction.
  2. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  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.
  4. 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.
  5. Illumina is a trademark of Illumina, Inc.

RMT2-26

The RMT2-26 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes T cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain-2 (TIM-2) which is also known as T-cell membrane protein 2, TIMD-2, or Tim2. TIM-2 is an ~55 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is encoded by Timd2 (T cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain containing 2) which belongs to the immunoglobulin gene superfamily. TIM-2 contains extracellular IgV and mucin domains and a cytoplasmic region with a conserved tyrosine phosphorylation motif which is involved in transmembrane signaling. A human ortholog for mouse TIM-2 has not been identified. TIM-2 is reportedly expressed on B cells with higher levels on activated B cells and germinal center B cells, type-2 T helper (Th2) cells, oligodendrocytes, and epithelial cells in the kidney and liver. It may serve as a receptor for Semaphorin 4A (Sema4A) or the heavy chain of ferritin (H-ferritin). The RMT2-26 antibody can reportedly block the binding of H-ferritin to TIM-2.

Application Notes

The antibody was conjugated to an oligonucleotide that contains an antibody clone-specific barcode (ABC) flanked by a poly-A tail on the 3' end and a PCR handle (PCR primer binding site) on the 5' end.  The ABC for this antibody was designed to be used with other BD AbSeq oligonucleotides conjugated to other antibodies. All AbSeq ABC sequences were selected in silico to be unique from human and mouse genomes, have low predicted secondary structure, and have high Hamming distance within the BD AbSeq portfolio, to allow for sequencing error correction and unique mapping. The poly-A tail of the oligonucleotide allows the ABC to be captured by the BD Rhapsody™ system. The 5' PCR handle allows for efficient sequencing library generation for Illumina sequencing platforms.

NOTE:  The BD Rhapsody Single-Cell Analysis System must be used with the BD Rhapsody Express Instrument.
