Regulatory Status Legend
The 2A9-1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to human CX3CR1, which is also known as chemokine (C-C) receptor-like 1 (CCRL1), Beta chemokine receptor-like 1 (CMK-BRL-1), G protein-coupled receptor 13 (GPR13), or GPRV28 (V28). CX3CR1 is a seven transmembrane G protein coupled receptor that is expressed by NK cells, T cells, and monocytes. The cellular expression of CX3CR1 is correlated with high levels of intracellular perforin and granzyme B. CX3CR1 serves as a receptor for fractalkine (CX3CL1). Fractalkine is a transmembrane chemokine of the CX3C family that is expressed on activated endothelial cells, neurons, and astrocytes. Interaction of CX3CR1 with fractalkine initiates cellular adhesive and chemotactic responses.
Alexa Fluor® 647 conjugates are highly photostable and remain fluorescent over a broad pH range. The excitation and emission maxima are nearly identical to those of APC. However, APC tends to be brighter while Alexa Fluor® 647 is more optimal for intracellular applications. This fluorochrome exhibits uncommon photostability, making it an ideal choice for use in fluorescence microscopy. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, APC and Alexa Fluor® 647 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 to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 was 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).
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
- 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 Alexa Fluor®, Pacific Blue™, and Cascade Blue® dye antibody conjugates in this product are sold under license from Molecular Probes, Inc. for research use only, excluding use in combination with microarrays, or as analyte specific reagents. The Alexa Fluor® dyes (except for Alexa Fluor® 430), Pacific Blue™ dye, and Cascade Blue® dye are covered by pending and issued patents.
