Regulatory Status Legend
The monoclonal antibody 150503 specifically binds to the human CC chemokine receptor, CCR7, also known as CD197. CCR7 (previously known as BLR2, EBI1 and CMKBR7), a seven-transmembrane, G-protein-coupled receptor, is the specific receptor for CC chemokines, MIP-3β/Exodus 3/ELC/ CCL19 and 6Ckine/Exodus 2/SLC/TCA4/CCL21. CCR7 mRNA is expressed mainly in lymphoid tissues including the spleen, lymph nodes and tonsil. CD197/CCR7 is expressed on peripheral T and B lymphocytes by bone marrow and cord blood CD34-positive cells and by mature dendritic cells. In response to its cognate chemokines, CD197/CCR7 mediates homing of leucocytes to secondary lymphoid tissues. Differential CCR7 expression can be used to distinguish naive, central memory, and effector memory T cell subsets. The human CCR7 gene, unlike other CC chemokine receptor genes, has been mapped to chromosome 17 (region 17q12).
Caution: Under some complex multi-color conditions, this clone may non-specifically interact with antibodies conjugated with APC-H7 or APC-Cy7, contributing to staining artifacts. BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794), designed to minimize on non-specific fluorescent dye interactions, does not resolve this interaction with either APC-H7 or APC-Cy7. For optimal multicolor staining results, alternatives to APC-H7 and APC-Cy7 should be evaluated.

R-phycoerythrin (PE) is an accessory photosynthetic pigment found in red algae. It exists in vitro as a 240-kDa protein with 23 phycoerythrobilin chromophores per molecule. This makes PE one of the brightest fluorochromes for flow cytometry applications, but its photobleaching properties make it unsuitable for fluorescence microscopy.

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 R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were removed.
- 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).
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- 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.
