Regulatory Status Legend
B cell activation is initiated by crosslinking the B cell receptor, which leads to activation of non-receptor protein tyrosine kinases (PTK), including Btk, Syk, and three Src kinases, Fyn, Lyn, and Blk. Activated PTKs then phosphorylate multiple cellular proteins involved in B lymphocyte signaling. Syk is responsible for the tyrosine phosphorylation of B cell linker protein (BLNK), a member of the SLP-76 family of adapter proteins. Phosphorylation of human BLNK at tyrosines 84, 178, and 189 (Y84, Y178, and Y189) creates docking sites for PLCγ2, leading to the activation of downstream signaling pathways.
The 2B11 monoclonal antibody recognizes BLNK, regardless of phosphorylation status. A fusion protein representing amino acids 4-205 of human BLNK was used as the immunogen. BLNK is expressed as two phosphoproteins migrating at 68 and 70 kDa in SDS/PAGE that represent alternatively spliced forms of human BLNK.
Alexa Fluor® 647 conjugates are highly photostable and remain fluorescent over a broad pH range. The excitation and emission maxima are nearly identical to those of APC. However, APC tends to be brighter while Alexa Fluor® 647 is more optimal for intracellular applications. This fluorochrome exhibits uncommon photostability, making it an ideal choice for use in fluorescence microscopy. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, APC and Alexa Fluor® 647 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 to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 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).
- Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for allophycocyanin (APC).
- For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
- 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.
- Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
- Alexa Fluor® is a registered trademark of Molecular Probes, Inc., Eugene, OR.
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- The Alexa Fluor®, Pacific Blue™, and Cascade Blue® dye antibody conjugates in this product are sold under license from Molecular Probes, Inc. for research use only, excluding use in combination with microarrays, or as analyte specific reagents. The Alexa Fluor® dyes (except for Alexa Fluor® 430), Pacific Blue™ dye, and Cascade Blue® dye are covered by pending and issued patents.
