Aqueous buffered solution containing ≤0.09% sodium azide.

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 BV711 under optimal conditions that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.

Recommended Assay Procedures

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes (including BD OptiBuild Brilliant reagents) 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).

Product Notices

  1. This antibody was developed for use in flow cytometry.
  2. The production process underwent stringent testing and validation to assure that it generates a high-quality conjugate with consistent performance and specific binding activity. However, verification testing has not been performed on all conjugate lots.
  3. Researchers should determine the optimal concentration of this reagent for their individual applications.
  4. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  5. 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.

The MECA-32 antibody reacts with a dimer of 50-55–kDa subunits expressed on most or all endothelial cells in the embryonic and adult mouse, with the exception of cardiac and skeletal muscle and the brain. Normally in skeletal and cardiac muscle, MECA-32 antigen expression is limited to small arterioles and venules; however, under conditions of inflammation, it can be induced on previously non-expressing vessels in cardiac muscle. In the central nervous system (CNS), the panendothelial cell antigen expression is developmentally regulated. During embryonic development, the antigen is found on brain vasculature up to day 16 of gestation, after which it disappears. The cessation of MECA-32 antigen expression in the CNS may be associated with the establishment of the blood-brain barrier, which begins on day 16 of gestation. In the adult mouse,  inflammation in the CNS can lead to re-expression of the panendothelial cell antigen.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV711 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 with an Ex Max of 405-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 711-nm.  BD Horizon BV711 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in a filter used to detect Cy™5.5 / Alexa Fluor® 700-like dyes (eg, 712/20-nm filter).  Due to the excitation and emission characteristics of the acceptor dye, there may be moderate spillover into the Alexa Fluor® 700 and PerCP-Cy5.5 detectors.  However, the spillover can be corrected through compensation as with any other dye combination.

The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 711 (BV711) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a BV421 donor with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 407-nm and an acceptor dye with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 713-nm. BV711, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 710-nm (e.g., a 712/20-nm bandpass filter). The acceptor dye can be excited by the Red (628–640-nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
