BB515 Mouse Anti-Human CD25
BB515 Mouse Anti-Human CD25

Flow cytometric analysis of CD25 expression on unstimulated and stimulated human peripheral blood lymphocytes.

Left and Middle Panels: Human whole blood was stained with either BD Horizon™ BB515 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 564416; Left Panel) or BD Horizon BB515 Mouse Anti-Human CD25 antibody (Cat. No. 564467/564468; Middle Panel). Erythrocytes were lysed with BD FACS Lysing Solution (Cat. No. 349202). Two-color flow cytometric contour plots showing the correlated expression patterns for Ig Isotype control staining (Left Panel) or CD25 expression (Middle Panel) versus Autofluorescence were generated for events with the forward and side light- scatter characteristics of intact lymphocytes.

Right Panel: Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells were stimulated for 3 days with Phytohemagglutinin. The cells were stained with either BD Horizon™ BB515 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (dashed line histogram) or BD Horizon BB515 Mouse Anti-Human CD25 antibody (solid line histogram). The fluorescence histograms were derived from events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable lymphoblasts.

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™ BB515 under optimum conditions and unconjugated antibody was removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

BD™ CompBeads can be used as surrogates to assess fluorescence spillover (Compensation).  When fluorochrome conjugated antibodies are bound to 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 CompBead to ensure that BD Comp beads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

For optimal results, it is recommended to perform 2 washes after staining with antibodies. Cells may be prepared, stained with antibodies and washed twice with wash buffer per established protocols for immunofluorescence staining, prior to acquisition on a flow cytometer. Performing fewer than the recommended wash steps may lead to increased spread of the negative population.

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes are used in the same experiment.  Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation.  The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions.  More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794/566349) or the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer Plus (Cat. No. 566385).

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. 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. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  5. BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer is covered by one or more of the following US patents: 8,110,673; 8,158,444; 8,575,303; 8,354,239.

2A3

The 2A3 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to human CD25, the low-affinity alpha subunit of the Interleukin-2 Receptor (IL- 2Rα). CD25 associates with CD122 (IL-2Rβ chain) and CD132 (common γ chain or γc) to form the high-affinity signal-transducing IL-2R complex. CD25 is expressed by subsets of thymocytes and peripheral blood lymphocytes including CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells and memory T cells. CD25 antigen density increases on activated T cells including phytohemagglutinin (PHA)-, concanavalin A (Con A)-, and CD3-activated T lymphocytes. High levels of CD25 can be expressed by T lymphocytes from mixed lymphocyte cultures and by human T-lymphocyte leukemia virus (HTLV)-infected T-lymphocyte leukemia lines, for example, HUT-102. CD25 can also be expressed by activated B cells and macrophages. Recombinant IL-2 blocks the binding of the 2A3 antibody to PHA-activated T lymphocytes.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BB515 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue family of dyes. With an Ex Max near 490 nm and an Em Max near 515 nm, BD Horizon BB515 can be excited by the blue laser (488 nm) laser and detected with a 530/30 nm filter. This dye has been exclusively developed by BD Biosciences and is up to seven times brighter than FITC with less spillover into the PE channel. Due to similar excitation and emission properties, BB515, FITC, and Alexa Fluor® 488 cannot be used simultaneously. It is not recommended to use BB515 in cocktails that include Streptavidin conjugates as it may cause high background.

BB515
The BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue 515 (BB515) dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue family of dyes. This dye is a polymer fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 490-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) of 515-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BB515 is designed to be excited by the blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520-nm (e.g., 530/30-nm). BB515 reagents are significantly brighter than equivalent FITC or Alexa Fluor™ 488 reagents with less spillover into the PE detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
