Regulatory Status Legend
The 3A4/Clec9A monoclonal antibody specifically binds to human Clec9A (C-type lectin domain family member 9A). Clec9A is a type II transmembrane glycoprotein with a single extracellular C-type lectin domain. Clec9A is also known as CD370 and DNGR1 (Dendritic cell natural killer lectin group receptor 1). Clec9A is selectively expressed on CD141+ myeloid dendritic cells. Clec9A reportedly functions as an endocytic receptor for necrotic cells. It can mediate the cross-presentation of dead-cell associated antigens by dendritic cells in a Syk-dependent manner. The 3A4 antibody reportedly crossreacts with peripheral blood dendritic cells form Pigtail macaques (Macaca nemestrina).
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.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
