Regulatory Status Legend
The monoclonal antibody clone p30-15 reacts with CD337, also known as NKp30, a receptor found on the surface of natural killer (NK) cells. NK cells are large lymphoid cells discovered because of their ability to recognize and kill abnormal cells such as tumor and virally infected cells. NK cell immune responses are regulated by a balance of activating and inhibitory signals generated by cell surface receptors. Inhibitory receptors recognize MHC class I molecules on normal cells producing a negative signal to the NK cell. Loss of MHC class I expression in infected or transformed cells results in the loss of this negative signal leading to NK cell activation. In concert with the loss of inhibitory signals, activation signals via NK receptors such as NKp30, NKp44, NKp46, NKG2D, and NKp80 mediate the activation of NK cells. NKp30 cooperates with NKp46 and/or NKp44 in the induction of NK cell-mediated cytotoxicity against the majority of target cells.
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
The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 was removed.
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

- 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.
- Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for allophycocyanin (APC).
- 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.
