Regulatory Status Legend
The 10E5 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD226 which is also known as, Platelet and T-cell activation antigen 1 (Pta1), T lineage-specific activation antigen 1 (TLiSA1), or DNAX accessory molecule-1 (DNAM-1). CD226 is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily. CD226 serves as an adhesion molecule that is primarily expressed on T lymphocytes. Naïve CD8+ T cells express high levels of CD226 whereas it is differentially expressed on CD4+ T cells. In certain model systems, long term-cloned Th1 cells can express high CD226 levels when compared with the downregulated CD226 expression exhibited on cloned Th2 and Th0 cells. CD226 expression is also detectable on subsets of CD11b+ macrophages and NK cells. Adhesive interactions between CD226 and its ligands, CD112 and CD155, can result in cell signaling events that promote innate and adaptive immune responses, including the differentiation and survival of cytotoxic 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
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.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/pharmingen/protocols for technical protocols.
- 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.
