Regulatory Status Legend
The RR8-1 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes the Vα 11.1 and Vα 11.2, but not Vα 11.3 T-cell Receptors (TCR) of mice having the b (e.g., C57BL) and d (e.g., DBA/1, DBA/2, NZW) haplotypes of Tcra gene complex. RR8-1 antibody does not react with strains having the a (e.g., A, AKR, BALB/c, CBA, C3H/He) or c (e.g., NZB, SJL, SWR, NOD) Tcra haplotypes. Plate-bound RR8-1 antibody activates Vα 11.1, 11.2[b,d] TCR-bearing T lymphocytes.

R-phycoerythrin (PE) is an accessory photosynthetic pigment found in red algae. It exists in vitro as a 240-kDa protein with 23 phycoerythrobilin chromophores per molecule. This makes PE one of the brightest fluorochromes for flow cytometry applications, but its photobleaching properties make it unsuitable for fluorescence microscopy.

Preparation and Storage
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated with R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were removed.
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- 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 flow cytometry of cell suspensions from peripheral lymphoid tissues, it is recommended that multicolor staining be performed to distinguish T lymphocytes from non-T cells. This antibody conjugate has been tested by immunofluorescent staining (≤ 1 μg/million cells) with flow cytometric analysis.
