Regulatory Status Legend
The O78-1208 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the mouse Interleukin-23 Receptor (IL-23R) subunit that is encoded by the il23r gene. The IL-23R subunit is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein and member of the hemopoietin receptor superfamily. The mouse IL-23 Receptor complex is comprised of IL-23R and IL-12 receptor beta 1 (IL-12Rβ1) subunits. The IL-23R complex can bind IL-23, a cytokine that plays roles in innate and adaptive immunity as well as in autoimmune diseases, eg, by the generation and maintenance of Th17 cells. Mouse IL-23R is expressed by activated/memory CD4+ T cells, Th1, Th2 and Th17 cells, γδ T cells, dendritic cells and macrophages as determined by IL-23R mRNA expression and IL-23R-GFP reporter mouse studies. The IL-23-bound IL-23R complex transduces an intracellular signal pathway mediated by a Jak-STAT signaling cascade.
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 (eg, 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.
- 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.

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.
For optimal and reproducible results, 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 Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions. More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794) or the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer Plus (Cat. No. 566385).
