The 235614 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CRACC (CD2-like receptor activating cytotoxic cells) which is also known as CD319, CS1 (CD2 subset 1), SLAMF7, 19A, and 19A24. CRACC is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the CD2 family of receptors within the Ig superfamily. CRACC is expressed on most NK cells and subsets of CD8+ T cells, CD4+ T cells, B cells, macrophages, and dendritic cells. CRACC reportedly plays roles in the activation, proliferation and effector functions of T cells, NK cells, and other leucocytes.
This antibody is conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV605 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max of 602-nm, BD Horizon BV605 can be excited by a violet laser and detected with a standard 610/20-nm filter set. BD Horizon BV605 is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 and an acceptor dye with an Em max at 605-nm. Due to the excitation of the acceptor dye by the green (532 nm) and yellow-green (561 nm) lasers, there will be significant spillover into the PE and BD Horizon PE-CF594 detectors off the green or yellow-green lasers. BD Horizon BV605 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting brightness equivalent to PE conjugates and can be used as a third color off of the violet laser.
