BV421 Mouse Anti-Human CD79a
BV421 Mouse Anti-Human CD79a

Flow cytometric analysis of CD79a expression on human peripheral blood lymphocytes. Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells were fixed with BD Cytofix™ Fixation Buffer (Cat. No. 554655) and permeabilized with BD Perm/Wash™ Buffer (Cat. No. 554723) and subsequently stained with either BD Horizon™ BV421 Mouse Anti-Human CD79a antibody (Cat. No. 562852; solid line histogram) or BD Horizon™ BV421 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 562438; dashed line histogram). The fluorescence histograms were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact lymphocytes. Flow cytometry was performed using a BD™ LSR II Flow Cytometer System.

Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze. The antibody was conjugated with BD Horizon BV421 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon BV421 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. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  3. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.

HM47

The HM47 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the cytoplasmic domain of CD79a. CD79a is a 47 kDa type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein present on B lymphocytes. CD79a is also referred to as mb-1, IGA and Ig-alpha (Igα). It is expressed on B cells at various stages of differentiation, from pre-B cell stage, probably before expression of cytoplasmic µ chain, to plasma cell stage, in which it is detected only in the cytoplasm. CD79a associates with CD79b to form part of the B-cell receptor complex. It has been suggested that CD79a may play a role in mediating the transport of IgM to the cell surface. This antibody has been found to crossreact with  permeabilized A20 cells (mouse B cell line).

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon™ Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max at 421-nm, BD Horizon™ BV421 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the standard Pacific Blue™ filter set (eg, 450/50-nm filter). BD Horizon™ BV421 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue™ conjugates.

BV421
The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 421 (BV421) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This polymer-technology based dye has an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 407-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 423-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BV421 is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 420-nm (e.g., a 431/28-nm or 450/50-nm bandpass filter). BV421 is an ideal alternative for V450 as it is approximately ten times brighter with less spillover into the BV510/V500 detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
