Regulatory Status Legend
The MBC 78.2 monoclonal antibody recognizes CD31 which is also known as, Platelet endothelial cell adhesion molecule (PECAM-1), platelet GPIIa, or EndoCAM. CD31 is a ~130 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the Ig gene superfamily. CD31 is comprised of an extracellular region with six IgC-like domains, a transmembrane region, and a cytoplasmic domain that contains two immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motifs (ITIMs). The MBC 78.2 antibody specifically binds to an epitope located on membrane-proximal, extracellular Ig-like domain 6 of CD31. This epitope remains expressed by activated T cells after enzymatic cleavage and shedding of a soluble extracellular CD31 fragment comprised of Ig-like domains 1 to 5 from cells. In contrast to the MBC 78.2 antibody, the WM59 monoclonal antibody reportedly binds to the extracellular Ig-like domain 2 of CD31. WM59 can thus bind to cells that express intact CD31 but not to cells that express a truncated form CD31 that lacks at least the membrane distal Ig-like domains 1 and 2 of CD31. CD31 has wide tissue distribution and is expressed on platelets, monocytes, granulocytes, some T cell subsets, and at high levels on endothelial cells. This cell adhesion molecule has been implicated in a number of cellular phenomena, including vascular wound healing. angiogenesis, transendothelial migration of leucocytes, and the regulation of T cell responses.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV711 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 with an Ex Max of 405-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 711-nm. BD Horizon BV711 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in a filter used to detect Cy™5.5 / Alexa Fluor® 700-like dyes (eg, 712/20-nm filter). Due to the excitation and emission characteristics of the acceptor dye, there may be moderate spillover into the Alexa Fluor® 700 and PerCP-Cy5.5 detectors. However, the spillover can be corrected through compensation as with any other dye combination.
BV711 is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 and an acceptor dye with an emission maximum at 711 nm. This dye offers a very bright choice for the violet laser. Due to the excitation and emission characteristics of the acceptor dye, there may be moderate spillover into the Alexa Fluor® 700 and PerCP-Cy5.5 detectors. BV711 will also have moderate spillover into the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet 786 detector.

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 with BD Horizon BV711 under optimal conditions that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.
- This antibody was developed for use in flow cytometry.
- 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).
