Regulatory Status Legend
The G10F5 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD66b, also known as Carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule 8 (CEACAM8). CD66b is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) linked protein with a molecular weight of 100 kDa expressed on granulocytes. This molecule was previously clustered as CD67 in the Fourth Human Leucocyte Differentiation Antigen (HLDA) Workshop and renamed CD66b in the Fifth HLDA Workshop. CD66b is a member of the carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA)-like glycoprotein family present on granulocytes and referred to as non-specific crossreacting antigens (NCA). Granulocyte activation induced with soluble stimulators (calcium ionophore, phorbol myristate acetate, N-formylmethionyl- leucyl-phenylalanine) results in release and increased expression of NCA. Findings suggest that these molecules may play a role in phagocytosis, chemotaxis and adherence.
FITC, fluorescein isothiocyanate, is a fluorochrome with a molecular weight of 389 Da. FITC is sensitive to pH changes and photobleaching. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, FITC and Alexa Fluor® 488 cannot be used simultaneously. FITC is relatively dim and should be reserved for highly expressed markers whenever possible.

Preparation and Storage
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated with FITC under optimum conditions, and unreacted FITC was removed.
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
- 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.
- Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
- 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.
