Regulatory Status Legend
The CXCR3-173 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to mouse CD183, also known as CXCR3. CD183 is a seven transmembrane spanning, G protein-coupled chemokine receptor for CXC chemokines including CXCL9 (Mig), CXCL10 (IP-10) and CXCL11 (I-TAC). These chemokines are induced by inflammatory cytokines including IFN-γ, IFN-α/β, and TNF. CXCR3 is primarily expressed on activated/memory CD4+ and CD8+ T lymphocytes, Foxp+ regulatory T cells, natural killer T (NKT) cells and mature NK cells. Binding of chemokines to CXCR3 induces integrin activation, cytoskeletal changes, and chemotactic migration of activated lymphocytes. CD183 has been reported to play important roles in T cell recruitment and immune responses in a number of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The CXCR3-173 antibody reportedly inhibited in vitro chemotactic responses to CXCL10 or CXCL11 significantly but not to CXCL9. When administered systemically to mouse hosts, the CXCR3-173 antibody reportedly prolonged cardiac and pancreatic islet cell allograft survival. In the presence of CXCR3 ligands, especially, CXCL10 and CXCL11, staining with the antibody can be significantly blocked.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BB700, which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue family of dyes. It is a polymer-based tandem dye developed exclusively by BD Biosciences. With an excitation max of 485 nm and an emission max of 693 nm, BD Horizon BB700 can be excited by the 488 nm laser and detected in a standard PerCP-Cy™5.5 set (eg, 695/40-nm filter). This dye provides a much brighter alternative to PerCP-Cy5.5 with less cross laser excitation off the 405 nm and 355 nm lasers.
BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue 700 (BB700) is a dye that was exclusively developed by BD Biosciences as brighter alternative to PerCP-Cy5.5. This dye also has less cross laser excitation off the 405 nm laser, resulting in less spillover into the violet channels compared to PerCP-Cy5.5. Due to similar excitation and emission properties, BD Horizon BB700 and PerCP-Cy5.5 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 BB700 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 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 or 566349).
When setting up compensation, it is recommended to compare spillover values obtained from cells and BD™ CompBeads to ensure that beads will provide sufficiently accurate spillover values.
For optimal results, it is recommended to perform two washes after staining with antibodies. Cells may be prepared, stained with antibodies and washed twice with wash buffer per established protocols for immunofluorescent staining prior to acquisition on a flow cytometer. Performing fewer than the recommended wash steps may lead to increased spread of the negative population.
