Regulatory Status Legend
The LpMab-17 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes human podoplanin which is encoded by PDPN. Podoplanin is a 38-44 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein. This heavily glycosylated mucin type protein is named for its expression on kidney glomerular epithelial cells known as podocytes. It is also expressed on a wide variety of cell types, including intestinal and thymic epithelial cells, alveolar type I cells, fibroblastic reticular cells, lymphatic endothelial cells, osteoblasts, and Th17 cells. Its expression is upregulated in some tumors. Podoplanin induces platelet aggregation via its three platelet aggregation-stimulating (PLAG) domains; it binds C-type lectin domain family 1 member B (Clec1B, also known as CLEC2); and it is involved in actin cytoskeleton organization and in cellular adhesion and migration. It also plays roles in organogenesis, vascular development, inflammatory diseases, tumorigenesis, and cancer cell motility and metastasis.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV480 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 436-nm and Em Max at 478-nm, BD Horizon BV480 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the BD Horizon BV510 (525/40-nm) filter set. BV480 has less spillover into the BV605 detector and, in general, is brighter than BV510.
BD Horizon™ BV480 is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 436-nm and Em Max at 478-nm, BD Horizon BV480 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the BD Horizon™ BV510 (525/40-nm) filter set. BV480 has less spillover into the BD Horizon™ BV605 detector and, in general, is brighter than BD Horizon BV510. Due to similar excitation and emission properties, BV480, BV510 and V500 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 the dye under optimum conditions that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.
- The production process underwent stringent testing and validation to assure that it generates a high-quality conjugate with consistent performance and specific binding activity. However, verification testing has not been performed on all conjugate lots.
- Researchers should determine the optimal concentration of this reagent for their individual applications.
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- 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.

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes (including BD Optibuild Brilliant reagents) are used in the same experiment. Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation. The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions. More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794/566349) or the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer Plus (Cat. No. 566385).
For Immunofluorescence Applications:
The use of a mounting reagent (eg, ProLong® Gold) is highly recommended to maximize the photostability of BV480. For confocal microscopy systems, a 440 nm laser is the optimal excitation source and the recommended emission filter is a 485/20 nm bandpass filter.
For epifluorescence microscopes with broad spectrum excitation sources, the recommended excitation and emission filters are 445/20 nm and 485/20 nm bandpass filters, respectively. For specific multicolor imaging applications, the exact filter configurations should be optimized by the end user.
