APC-R700 Mouse Anti-Human CD4

Flow cytometric analysis of CD4 expression on human peripheral blood lymphocytes. Human whole blood was stained with either BD Horizon™ APC-R700 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 564974; dashed line histogram) or BD Horizon APC-R700 Mouse Anti-Human CD4 antibody (Cat. No. 564975/564976; solid line histogram). The erythrocytes were lysed with BD FACS™ Lysing Solution (Cat. No. 349202).  The fluorescence histogram showing CD4 expression (or Ig Isotype control staining) was derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact lymphocytes. Flow cytometric analysis 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 with BD Horizon APC-R700 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon APC-R700 were removed.

Product Notices

  1. This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  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.

RPA-T4

The RPA-T4 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD4, a 59 kDa single-chain transmembrane glycoprotein that is expressed on T-helper/inducer cell populations. CD4 is also expressed on thymocyte subsets and at lower levels on monocytes and macrophages. CD4 functions as a co-receptor in MHC class II-restricted antigen-induced T cell activation and as a receptor for human immunodeficiency viruses (HIV). This antibody binds to the D1 domain (CDR1 and CDR3 epitopes) of the CD4 antigen and reacts with approximately 80% of thymocytes and 45% of peripheral blood lymphocytes. RPA-T4 is capable of blocking HIV-1, gp120, and inhibits syncytium formation.

This antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon APC-R700, which has been developed exclusively by BD Biosciences as a better alternative to Alexa Fluor® 700. APC-R700 excites and emits at similar wavelengths to Alexa Fluor® 700 yet exhibits significantly improved brightness. This dye can be excited by the red laser and detected with the same filter set as Alexa Fluor® (eg, 730/45-nm filter).

APC-R700
The BD Horizon™ APC-R700 (APC-R700) Dye is a part of the BD APC red family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of an Allophycocyanin (APC) dye donor that has excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 651-nm and an acceptor dye, R700, with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 706-nm. APC-R700, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the red (627–640-nm) laser and detected using an optical filter centered near 710-nm (e.g., a 720/40-nm bandpass filter). APC-R700 is a brighter alternative to Alexa Fluor™ 700. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
