Regulatory Status Legend
The 5H10 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to mouse CD209a, or CIRE, which is the most closely related homolog of human DC-SIGN. In the mouse, several homologs of human CD209 (DC-SIGN) have been described. CD209a is a 238-amino acid type-II transmembrane C-type lectin, with an extracellular carbohydrate recognition domain. It can bind to mannosylated ligands in a Ca++ dependent manner. CD209a is expressed by some conventional CD4+ and CD4-CD8- dendritic cells (DC) but not by CD8+ DC. It is also expressed on monocytes, splenic plasmacytoid pre-DC, macrophages, and resident peritoneal cells. CD209a expression is downregulated upon cellular activation. CD209a is thought to play a role in the internalization and presentation of antigens to initiate immune responses.
Allophycocyanin (APC), is an accessory photosynthetic pigment found in blue-green algae. Its molecular weight is approximately 105 kDa. APC has six phycocyanobilin chromophores per molecule, which makes it a very bright fluorochrome that is highly suitable for flow cytometry applications. 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 APC under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free APC were removed.
- 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.
- This APC-conjugated reagent can be used in any flow cytometer equipped with a dye, HeNe, or red diode laser.
