BB700 Mouse Anti-Human CD8
Multiparameter flow cytometric analysis of CD8 expression on human peripheral blood leucocytes. Whole blood was stained with either BD Horizon™ BB700 Mouse IgG1 κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 566404; Left Plot) or BD Horizon™ BB700 Mouse Anti-Human CD8 antibody (Cat. No. 568284; Right Plot) at 0.5 µg/test. Erythrocytes were lysed with BD FACS Lysing Solution (Cat. No. 349202). The bivariate pseudocolor density plot showing the correlated expression of CD8 (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus side-light scatter (SSC-A) signals was derived from gated events with the forward and side-light scatter characteristics of intact leucocyte populations. Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD FACSCanto™ II Flow Cytometry 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 unconjugated antibody and free dye were 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® CompBeads to ensure that BD® CompBeads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer should be used anytime BD Horizon Brilliant™ dyes are used in a multicolor flow cytometry panel.  Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation.  The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions. When BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer is used in in the multicolor panel, it should also be used in the corresponding compensation controls for all dyes to achieve the most accurate compensation. For the most accurate compensation, compensation controls created with either cells or beads should be exposed to BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer for the same length of time as the corresponding multicolor panel. 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).

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

HIT8a

The HIT8a monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD8a (CD8α). CD8α is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein and a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. CD8α is expressed by the majority of thymocytes, by subpopulations of  αβ T cells and γδ T cells and by some NK cells. Cell surface CD8α is expressed either as a disulfide-linked homodimer (CD8αα) or as a heterodimer (CD8αβ) when disulfide-bonded to a CD8 beta chain (CD8β). CD8-positive αβ T cells coexpress both CD8αα homodimers and CD8αβ heterodimers whereas some γδ T cells and NK cells express CD8αα homodimers.  CD8 plays important roles in T cell activation and selection. The extracellular IgSF domain of CD8α binds to a non-polymorphic determinant on HLA class I molecules (α3 domain) and enables CD8 to function as a co-receptor with MHC class I-restricted TCR during T cell recognition of antigen. The cytoplasmic domain of CD8α associates with Lck, a Src family protein tyrosine kinase that is involved in intracellular signaling. Clones  HIT8a and RPA-T8 are not cross-blocking.

BB700
The BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue 700 (BB700) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a polymer-technology dye donor with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 476-nm and an acceptor dye with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 695-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BB700 is designed to be excited by the blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 695-nm (e.g., a 695/20-nm bandpass filter). The donor dye can be excited by the Violet (405 nm) laser and the acceptor dye can be excited by the red (627–640 nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover. BB700 Reagents are significantly brighter than equivalent PerCP or PerCP-Cy5.5 reagents and are less sensitive to photobleaching. In addition, BB700 shows much less excitation by the violet (407-nm) laser resulting in less spillover. BB700 has minimal yellow green (562-nm) excitation and is ideal for instruments with both blue (488-nm) and yellow green (562-nm) lasers. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
