Regulatory Status Legend
The RM134L antibody reacts with CD252 (OX-40 Ligand, OX-40L), a member of the NGF/TNF superfamily which is present on antigen-presenting cells and activated B lymphocytes. OX-40L interacts with OX-40 Antigen (CD134) found predominantly on activated T cells. This ligand-receptor pair is grouped with pairs such as CD40-CD40L and CD80- or CD86-CD28, which contribute significantly to B-cell/T-cell interaction during the immune response. The OX-40L-OX-40 interaction is reciprocally costimulatory in that both T cells and B cells are activated in cross-linking. Stimulation via OX-40 Antigen increases the proliferative and IL-2 production responses of activated T cells, while stimulation via OX-40L enhances proliferation and Ig secretion by activated B cells. The RM134L mAb stains B cells activated for four days with anti-IgM plus anti-CD40 (Clone HM40-3) antibodies. An increased binding of OX-40-Ig fusion protein to mouse splenic B cells was observed when B cells were treated with lipopolysaccharide (LPS), suggesting that OX-40L expression is augmented in LPS-activated splenic B cells when compared to resting cells, but this observation could not be confirmed with the RM134L mAb. In addition, other studies with OX-40-Ig fusion protein detected OX-40L on CD4+ and CD8+ activated splenic T cells, but OX-40L was not detected on T cells with the RM134L mAb. Similar results have been reported by others. The RM134L mAb inhibits the binding of OX-40-Ig fusion protein to OX-40L transfectants and blocks the costimulatory activity of OX-40L.
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.
- 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 immunofluorescence 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, 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. 563794/566349).
