PE-Cy™5 Streptavidin
PE-Cy™5 Streptavidin

Fluorescence emission spectra of R-Phycoerythrin and PE-Cy5. Excitation is at 488 nm and the emission spectra are normalized to the absorbance of both dyes at 488 nm. PE-Cy5 has a peak emission spectrum at 669 nm where there is little overlap with the R-PE spectrum. This reduces compensation required to less than 10%.

推奨アッセイ手順

PE-Cy5 tandem fluorochromes have been reported to bind some classes of human macrophages and granulocytes via Fc receptors, and PE has been reported to bind to mouse B lymphocytes via Fc receptors. Preincubation of mouse leukocytes with Purified Rat Anti-Mouse CD16/CD32 (Mouse BD Fc Block™) (Cat. No. 553141/553142) can reduce the non-specific binding of PE-Cy5-conjugated reagents to mouse B cells. For analysis of human peripheral blood, gating on specific cell populations based upon forward and light scatter, plus lineage markers, can help to overcome this limitation.

Furthermore, we have observed a distinct type of interaction between PE-Cy5 tandem fluorochromes and the splenocytes of SJL, NOD, and MRL mice: B lymphocytes and some other leukocyte subsets are brightly stained, and Mouse BD Fc Block™ has no significant effect. Therefore, PE-Cy5-conjugated reagents should not be used to stain leukocytes of SJL, NOD, or MRL mice. Reagents conjugated to PE, PerCP, PerCP-Cy5.5, Allophycocyanin (APC), and APC-Cy7 tandem fluorochrome can be used on leukocytes from these mouse strains.

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. 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.
  3. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  4. PE-Cy5 is a tandem fluorochrome composed of R-phycoerythrin (PE), which is excited by the 488 nm light of an Argon ion laser and serves as an energy donor, coupled to the cyanine dye Cy5, which acts as an energy acceptor and fluoresces at 670 nm. BD Biosciences Pharmingen has maximized the fluorochrome energy transfer in PE-Cy5, thus maximizing its fluorescence emission intensity, minimizing residual emission from PE, and minimizing lot-to-lot variation.
  5. PE-Cy5 is optimized for use with a single argon ion laser emitting 488-nm light. Because of the broad absorption spectrum of the PE-Cy5 tandem fluorochrome, extra care must be taken when using dual-laser cytometers which may directly excite both PE and Cy5™.
  6. Please observe the following precautions: Absorption of visible light can significantly alter the energy transfer occurring in any tandem fluorochrome conjugate; therefore, we recommend that special precautions be taken (such as wrapping vials, tubes, or racks in aluminum foil) to prevent exposure of conjugated reagents, including cells stained with those reagents, to room illumination.
  7. PE-Cy5 tandem fluorochromes have been reported to bind some classes of human macrophages and granulocytes via Fc receptors, and PE has been reported to bind to mouse B lymphocytes via Fc receptors. Preincubation of mouse leukocytes with Mouse BD Fc Block™ purified anti-mouse CD16/CD32 mAb 2.4G2 can reduce the non-specific binding of PE-Cy5-conjugated reagents to mouse B cells. However, PE-Cy5 conjugated reagents should not be used to stain splenocytes of SJL, NOD, and MRL mice as B lymphocytes and/or other leukocytes have been reported to non-specifically stain regardless of the use of Mouse BD Fc Block™ (the CD72c complex has been implicated for PE-Cy5 binding in these strains). Reagents conjugated to PE, PerCP, PerCP-Cy5.5, APC, and APC-Cy7 tandem fluorochrome can be used on leukocytes from these mouse strains.

SAv-PE-Cy5 is a useful second-step reagent for the indirect immunofluorescent staining of cells in combination with biotinylated primary antibodies for flow cytometric analysis. Excitation at 488-nm light leads to a fluorescence emission maximum of ~669 nm.

PE-Cy5
PE-Cy5 dye is a part of the BD PE family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a R-Phycoerythrin (PE) donor that has excitation maxima (Ex Max) of 496 nm and 566 nm and an acceptor dye, Cy™5, with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 670-nm. PE designed to be excited by the Blue (488-nm), Green (532-nm) and yellow-green (561-nm) lasers and detected using an optical filter centered near 670-nm (e.g., a 670/20-nm bandpass filter). The donor dye can be excited by the Blue (488-nm), Green (532-nm) and yellow-green (561-nm) lasers and the acceptor dye can be excited by the Red (627-640-nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
