Regulatory Status Legend
The 401901 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes Junctional adhesion molecule-like (JAML) which is also known as Adhesion molecule interacting with CXADR antigen 1 (AMICA), or Dendritic cell-specific protein CREA7-1. JAML (AMICA) is a ~65 kDa single-pass type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is encoded by JAML which belongs to the junctional adhesion molecule (JAM) family within the Ig gene superfamily. The extracellular region of this adhesion molecule contains two Ig domains followed by a transmembrane segment and a cytoplasmic domain involved in activation signaling. JAML (AMICA) is expressed on some leucocytes including granulocytes, monocytes, γδ T cells and effector memory αβ T cells. Leucocyte JAML (AMICA) forms a homodimer that can interact with CXADR (Coxsackie virus and adenovirus receptor, also known as CAR), a cell-surface membrane receptor found in the tight junctional complexes of adjacent endothelial or epithelial cells. These heterophilic interactions can function in leucocyte activation and the regulation of leucocyte migration through epithelial and endothelial tissues, eg, during inflammatory responses or wound healing.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV480 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 436-nm and Em Max at 478-nm, BD Horizon BV480 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the BD Horizon BV510 (525/40-nm) filter set. BV480 has less spillover into the BV605 detector and, in general, is brighter than BV510.
BD Horizon™ BV480 is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 436-nm and Em Max at 478-nm, BD Horizon BV480 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the BD Horizon™ BV510 (525/40-nm) filter set. BV480 has less spillover into the BD Horizon™ BV605 detector and, in general, is brighter than BD Horizon BV510. Due to similar excitation and emission properties, BV480, BV510 and V500 cannot be used simultaneously.

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 BV480 under optimal conditions that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.
- This antibody was developed for use in flow cytometry.
- 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.
- Researchers should determine the optimal concentration of this reagent for their individual applications.
- 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.

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).
