Regulatory Status Legend
The 3.9 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD11c, which is also known as Integrin alpha X (αX Integrin/ITGAX), or p150,95 Integrin alpha chain. CD11c is a ~150 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein. It is expressed on monocytes, macrophages, granulocytes, NK cells, dendritic cells, and subsets of B and T cells. It associates with CD18 (Integrin beta 2/β2 Integrin) to form the CD11c/CD18 complex, which is also known as p150,95 Integrin, or the Type 4 Complement Receptor (CR4). CD11c/CD18 binds fibrinogen and reportedly serves as a receptor for iC3b and ICAM-1/CD54. CD11c/CD18 functions as an adhesion molecule that mediates cellular binding to ligands expressed on stimulated epithelium and endothelium. The 3.9 monoclonal antibody crossreacts with CD11c expressed by Rhesus macaque leucocytes.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C.
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- 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.
- Sodium azide is a reversible inhibitor of oxidative metabolism; therefore, antibody preparations containing this preservative agent must not be used in cell cultures nor injected into animals. Sodium azide may be removed by washing stained cells or plate-bound antibody or dialyzing soluble antibody in sodium azide-free buffer. Since endotoxin may also affect the results of functional studies, we recommend the NA/LE (No Azide/Low Endotoxin) antibody format, if available, for in vitro and in vivo use.

- Species testing during development may have been performed with a different format of the same clone. Selected applications have been tested for cross-reactivity.

Note: The binding of the 3.9 antibody to CD11c is divalent cation dependent. Therefore, heparin is recommended for use as the blood anticoagulant rather than the EDTA chelating agent that might adversely affect 3.9 antibody binding and cellular staining
