Regulatory Status Legend
The BU15 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD11c, which is also known as Integrin alpha X (αX Integrin) or p150,95 Integrin alpha chain. CD11c is a ~150 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is encoded by ITGAX (Integrin subunit alpha X) which belongs to the integrin alpha chain family. It is variably expressed on monocytes, macrophages, granulocytes, NK cells, dendritic cells, and subsets of B and T cells. CD11c associates with CD18 (Integrin beta 2/β2 Integrin) to form the heterodimeric CD11c:CD18 complex, which is also known as p150,95 Integrin, or the Type 4 Complement Receptor (CR4). CD11c:CD18 binds to fibrinogen, iC3b, ICAM-1 (CD54), or lipopolysaccharide (LPS). CD11c:CD18 functions as an adhesion molecule that mediates cellular binding to ligands expressed on stimulated cells including epithelium and endothelium found during inflammation.

R-phycoerythrin (PE) is an accessory photosynthetic pigment found in red algae. It exists in vitro as a 240-kDa protein with 23 phycoerythrobilin chromophores per molecule. This makes PE one of the brightest fluorochromes for flow cytometry applications, but its photobleaching properties make it unsuitable for fluorescence microscopy.

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 R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were removed.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- 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.

Note: The binding of the BU15 antibody to CD11c is divalent cation dependent. Therefore, heparin is recommended for use as the blood anticoagulant rather than the EDTA chelating agent that might adversely affect BU15 antibody binding and cellular staining.
