Regulatory Status Legend
CD138 clone MI15 is derived from the fusion of mouse SP2/0 myeloma cells with spleen cells from BALB/c mice immunized with human cell line 8266.
The CD138 antibody recognizes syndecan-1, a member of the syndecan family of transmembrane heparin sulfate proteoglycans whose main functions are to modulate ligand-dependent activation of primary signaling receptors at the cell surface. Syndecan-1 exhibits molecular polymorphism; its core protein is a single-chain molecule of 70 to 75 kilodaltons (kDa), and its isoforms vary in molecular weight up to approximately 400 kDa.
Allophycocyanin (APC), is an accessory photosynthetic pigment found in blue-green algae. Its molecular weight is approximately 105 kDa. APC has six phycocyanobilin chromophores per molecule, which makes it a very bright fluorochrome that is highly suitable for flow cytometry applications. 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 vials at 2°C to 8°C. Conjugated forms should not be frozen. Protect from exposure to light. Each reagent is stable until the expiration date shown on the bottle label when stored as directed.
