Regulatory Status Legend
The HM48-1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD48 (previously known as BCM1 in mice, Blast-1 in human, and OX-45 in the rat), a GPI-anchored member of the Ig superfamily. It is widely distributed on leukocytes, but not on non-hematopoietic cells, and its ligands include CD2 (LFA-2) and CD244 (2B4 antigen). The HM48-1 mAb blocks binding of soluble CD2 to CD48-bearing cells, blocks the interaction of CD2 and CD244, inhibits spleen cell proliferative responses to mitogens, augments the proliferative response of spleen cells when cross-linked with anti-CD3e mAbs, and inhibits priming of CTL in vitro. In vivo administration of HM48-1 antibody can prolong survival of cardiac allografts, an effect which is greatly enhanced by the addition of anti-CD2 mAb 12-15. This hamster mAb to a mouse leukocyte antigen does not cross-react with rat leukocytes.
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 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 APC under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free APC were 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.
- Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/pharmingen/protocols for technical protocols.
- 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.
- This APC-conjugated reagent can be used in any flow cytometer equipped with a dye, HeNe, or red diode laser.
