Regulatory Status Legend
The U21-1283 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes Neuropilin-1 (NRP1), also known as CD304, Blood dendritic cell antigen 4 (BDCA4), and Vascular endothelial cell growth factor 165 receptor (VEGF165R). CD304 is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein involved in the development of the nervous and cardiovascular systems. It mediates the interaction, growth, survival, and migration of a variety of normal and tumor cells. CD304 is expressed on neurons, thymocytes, regulatory T cells, a subset of T follicular helper cells, dendritic cells, endothelial cells, and certain tumor cells. Neuropilin-1 has a very short cytoplasmic domain and interacts with various coreceptors to form ligand-binding, signal-transducing receptor complexes. CD304 complexes with Plexin-A family members to bind chemorepellent Class 3 Semaphorins and guide neuronal axon growth. It also functions as a coreceptor with VEGFR2/CD309 to stimulate angiogenesis in response to VEGF165. CD304 mediates the interactions between some T cells and dendritic cells.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max at 421-nm, BD Horizon BV421 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the standard Pacific Blue™ filter set (eg, 450/50-nm filter). BD Horizon BV421 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue conjugates.
BV421 is a polymer-based dye excited by the violet laser and is one of the brightest fluorochromes offered by BD Biosciences. Conjugates are typically 10 times brighter than Pacific Blue™ conjugates and are often as bright as or brighter than PE conjugates. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, BD Horizon BV421, Pacific Blue™, and BD Horizon™ V450 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 BV421 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon BV421 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).

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