Regulatory Status Legend
The 8G12 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes CD34, a 105-120 kDa single-chain type I transmembrane glycoprotein. The 8G12 antibody recognizes an epitope on CD34 distinct from the one recognized by clone My10. CD34 is expressed on immature hematopoietic precursor cells and all hematopoietic colony-forming cells in bone marrow and blood, including unipotent (CFU-GM, BFU-E) and pluripotent progenitors (CFU-GEMM, CFU-Mix, and CFUBlast). The CD34 antigen is a differentiation stage-specific leucocyte antigen. Terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-positive B- and T-lymphoid precursors in normal bone marrow are CD34+. The CD34 antigen is present on early myeloid cells that express the CD33 antigen but lack the CD14 and CD15 antigens and on early erythroid cells that express the CD71 antigen and dimly express the CD45 antigen. The CD34 antigen is also found on capillary endothelial cells and approximately 1% of human thymocytes. Normal peripheral blood lymphocytes, monocytes, granulocytes, and platelets do not express CD34. CD34 density is highest on early hematopoietic progenitor cells and decreases as cells mature. The antigen is absent on fully differentiated hematopoietic cells. Uncommitted CD34+ progenitor cells are CD38- and lack lineage-specific antigens such as CD71, CD33, CD10, and CD5, while CD34+ cells that are lineage-committed express the CD38 antigen in high density. Most CD34+ cells reciprocally express either the CD45RO or CD45RA antigens, with the CD45RO+ population being the more primitive. Approximately 60% of acute B-lymphoid leukemias and acute myeloid leukemias (AML) and 1% to 5% of acute T-lymphoid leukemias express CD34. CD34 is not expressed on chronic lymphoid leukemias or lymphomas.
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).
