Regulatory Status Legend
The CD56 antibody, clone NCAM16.2, is derived from the hybridization of P3-X63-Ag8.653 mouse myeloma cells with spleen cells isolated from BALB/c mice immunized with immunoaffinity-enriched NCAM from detergent extracts of adult human brain.
The CD56 antibody recognizes a heavily glycosylated 140-kilodalton (kDa) isoform of NCAM, a member of the immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily. The CD56 antibody also recognizes 180-kDa and 120-kDa isoforms of NCAM found in neurons and muscle, respectively.
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–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.
