Regulatory Status Legend
The G10F5 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD66b, also known as Carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule 8 (CEACAM8). CD66b is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) linked protein with a molecular weight of 100 kDa expressed on granulocytes. This molecule was previously clustered as CD67 in the Fourth Human Leucocyte Differentiation Antigen (HLDA) Workshop and renamed CD66b in the Fifth HLDA Workshop. CD66b is a member of the carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA)-like glycoprotein family present on granulocytes and referred to as non-specific crossreacting antigens (NCA). Granulocyte activation induced with soluble stimulators (calcium ionophore, phorbol myristate acetate, N-formylmethionyl- leucyl-phenylalanine) results in release and increased expression of NCA. Findings suggest that these molecules may play a role in phagocytosis, chemotaxis and adherence.
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.
- Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
- 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).
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
