Regulatory Status Legend
The RMP1-30 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes CD279 which is also known as PD-1 (programmed death-1). CD279 (PD-1) is a ~55 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is encoded by Pdcd1 which belongs to the CD28/CTLA-4 family within the Ig superfamily. CD279 (PD-1) is comprised of an extracellular region with an IgV-like domain and an intracellular region with an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motif (ITIM) and an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based switch motif (ITSM) that are associated with inhibitory signaling functions. CD279 (PD-1) is transiently expressed on CD4-CD8- thymocytes and developing B lymphocytes at the pro-B-cell stage. It is also expressed on activated myeloid cells, B cells, and T cells including exhausted T cells found in mice during chronic viral infections or cancer. This co-inhibitory receptor reportedly functions in negative regulation of immune responses and thus helps guard against autoimmunity and preserves peripheral tolerance. CD273 (also known as PD-L2 or B7-DC) and CD274 (PD-L1 or B7-H1) are members of the B7 family within the Ig superfamily that serve as ligands for CD279 (PD-1). The RMP1-30 antibody reportedly does not block the binding of CD279 (PD-1) to these ligands.
This antibody is conjugated to BD Horizon PE-CF594, which has been developed exclusively by BD Biosciences as a better alternative to PE-Texas Red®. PE-CF594 excites and emits at similar wavelengths to PE-Texas Red® yet exhibits improved brightness and spectral characteristics. Due to PE having maximal absorption peaks at 496 nm and 564 nm, PE-CF594 can be excited by the blue (488-nm), green (532-nm) and yellow-green (561-nm) lasers and can be detected with the same filter set as PE-Texas Red® (eg, 610/20-nm filter).
- Format PE-CF594
- Excitation Source Blue 488 nm,Green 532 nm,Yellow/Green 561 nm
- Excitation Max 496 nm
- Emission Max 612 nm
BD Horizon™ PE-CF594 is a tandem conjugate, developed exclusively by BD Biosciences, that combines PE and CF594. PE-CF594 is a brighter alternative to PE-Texas Red®, with improved spectral characteristics. PE-CF594 reagents exhibit very consistent spillover values lot to lot, making them an ideal choice for the PE-Texas Red® detector (610/20 nm).

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™ PE-CF594 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE-CF594 were removed.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- 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.
- Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
- When excited by the yellow-green (561-nm) laser, the fluorescence may be brighter than when excited by the blue (488-nm) laser.
- Because of the broad absorption spectrum of the tandem fluorochrome, extra care must be taken when using multi-laser cytometers, which may directly excite both PE and CF™594.
- Please observe the following precautions: Absorption of visible light can significantly alter the energy transfer occurring in any tandem fluorochrome conjugate; therefore, we recommend that special precautions be taken (such as wrapping vials, tubes, or racks in aluminum foil) to prevent exposure of conjugated reagents, including cells stained with those reagents, to room illumination.
