Alexa Fluor® 488 Rat Anti-Mouse I-A/I-E
Alexa Fluor® 488 Rat Anti-Mouse I-A/I-E
Immunohistofluorescent analysis of I-A/I-E expression by cells within C57BL/6 mouse spleen (Left Panel). A mouse spleen cryosection (5 µm) was fixed with BD Cytofix™ Fixation Buffer (Cat. No. 554655), blocked with 5% goat serum and 1% BSA diluted in 1x PBS, and stained with Alexa Fluor® 488 Rat Anti-Mouse I-A/I-E antibody (Cat. No. 562352, pseudo-colored green) and Alexa Fluor® 647 Rat Anti-Mouse CD3 Molecular Complex antibody (Cat. No. 557869, pseudo-colored blue). Images were captured on a standard epifluorescence microscope. Original magnification, 20x. Mouse spleen cells from either M5/114-negative SJL (Middle Panel) or M5/114-positive BALB/c (Right Panel) mice were stained with Alexa Fluor® 488 Rat Anti-Mouse I-A/I-E (Cat. No. 562352), APC Rat Anti-Mouse CD45R/B220 (Cat. No. 553092/561880) and APC Rat Anti-Mouse CD11b (Cat. No. 553312/561690) antibodies. Two-color flow cytometric dot plots showing the expression of I-A/I-E MHC class II alloantigens versus CD45R/B220 and CD11b were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable splenocytes. The M5/114 monoclonal antibody detects I-Ad and I-Ed MHC class II alloantigens that are expressed on both B cells and macrophages. Flow cytometry was performed using a BD™ LSR II Flow Cytometer System.

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 Alexa Fluor® 488 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 488 was removed.

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. The Alexa Fluor®, Pacific Blue™, and Cascade Blue® dye antibody conjugates in this product are sold under license from Molecular Probes, Inc. for research use only, excluding use in combination with microarrays, or as analyte specific reagents. The Alexa Fluor® dyes (except for Alexa Fluor® 430), Pacific Blue™ dye, and Cascade Blue® dye are covered by pending and issued patents.
  4. Alexa Fluor® 488 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC).
  5. Alexa Fluor® is a registered trademark of Molecular Probes, Inc., Eugene, OR.
  6. 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.

M5/114.15.2

The M5/114.15.2 monoclonal antibody recognizes a polymorphic determinant shared by the I-A[b], I-A[d], I-A[q], I-E[d], and I-E[k] (but not I-A[f], I-A[k], or I-A[s]) MHC class II alloantigens that can be expressed by B cells, dendritic cells, monocytes, macrophages and activated T cells. It also reacts with cells from mice of the H-2[p] and H-2[r] haplotypes, and it is non-reactive with cells from NOD (H-2[g7]) mice. Flow cytometric analysis indicates that the M5/114.15.2 and 2G9 monoclonal antibodies have comparable reactivity on cells from mice with I-A[b], I-A[d], I-A[g7], I-A[q], I-E[d], and I-E[k] alloantigens.

Alexa Fluor™ 488
Alexa Fluor™ 488 Dye is part of the BD blue family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 494-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 517-nm. Alexa Fluor™ 488 is designed to be excited by the Blue laser (488 nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520-nm (e.g., a 530/30-nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
