Regulatory Status Legend
The 2.4E6 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD212, which is also known as the Interleukin-12 Receptor beta-1 chain (IL12RB1/IL-12RB1/IL-12Rβ1). CD212 serves as a subunit for the functional IL-12 Receptor (IL-12Rβ1-IL-12Rβ2) and IL-23 Receptor (IL-12Rβ1-IL-23R) complexes. CD212 is expressed on T cells, B cells, or NK cells. CD212 is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the hemopoietin receptor superfamily. CD212 is responsible for binding to the IL-12 p40 subunit that is common to the heterodimeric IL-12 and IL-23 cytokines. IL-12 and IL-23 are immunomodulatory cytokines produced mainly by antigen-presenting cells (APC) including monocytes and dendritic cells. These cytokines have overlapping as well as distinct biological activities.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BB515 which was developed exclusively by BD Biosciences. With an excitation max of 490 nm and an emission max of 515 nm, BD Horizon BB515 can be excited by the 488 nm laser and detected in a standard FITC set (e.g. 530/30-nm filter). This dye provides a much brighter alternative to FITC with less spillover into the PE detector.
BB515 is a dye that was exclusively developed by BD Biosciences as a brighter alternative to FITC. This dye is up to seven times brighter than FITC and has less spillover into the PE channel. Due to similar excitation and emission properties, BB515, FITC, and Alexa Fluor® 488 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™ BB515 under optimum conditions and unconjugated antibody was 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).
- 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.

- BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer is covered by one or more of the following US patents: 8,110,673; 8,158,444; 8,575,303; 8,354,239.

For optimal results, it is recommended to perform 2 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.
