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 the dye under optimum conditions that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.


BD™ CompBeads can be used as surrogates to assess fluorescence spillover (Compensation). When fluorochrome conjugated antibodies are bound to BD CompBeads, they have spectral properties very similar to cells. However, for some fluorochromes there can be small differences in spectral emissions compared to cells, resulting in spillover values that differ when compared to biological controls. It is strongly recommended that when using a reagent for the first time, users compare the spillover on cells and BD CompBead to ensure that BD CompBeads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.


  1. Researchers should determine the optimal concentration of this reagent for their individual applications.
  2. 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.
  3. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  4. 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.

The 17G10.2 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to human Immunoglobulin Like Transcript 7 (ILT7), also known as CD85g. The ILT7 protein is encoded by the LILRA4 (Leukocyte Immunoglobulin Like Receptor subfamily A member 4) gene. ILT7 is a member of immunoglobulin-like transcripts (ILT) or leukocyte immunoglobulin-like receptor (LIR) gene family. ILT7 is selectively expressed on plasmacytoid dendrtic cells (pDC) but not on myeloid dendritic cells or other peripheral blood leukocytes. In response to IL-3, IL-3 receptor complex signaling downregulates ILT7 expression by pDC. ILT7 associates with the FcεRIγ signal adapter protein to form a receptor complex that can signal through activation of an immunoreceptor-based tyrosine activation motif (ITAM)-mediated signaling pathway. Signaling through the ILT7-FcεRIγ receptor complex negatively regulates the innate immune functions of pDC. ILT7 crosslinking inhibits TLR responses by pDC such as the stimulated production of type I interferon and other cytokines. Bone marrow stromal cell antigen 2 (BST2) has been identified as a biological ligand for ILT7.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon Red 718, which has been developed exclusively for BD Biosciences as a better alternative to Alexa Fluor® 700. BD Horizon Red 718 can be excited by the red laser (628 – 640 nm) and, with an Em Max around 718 nm, it can be detected using a 730/45 nm filter. Due to similar excitation and emission properties, we do not recommend using R718 in combination with APC-R700 or Alexa Fluor® 700.

The BD Horizon™ Red 718 (R718) Dye is part of the BD red family of dyes. It is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 695-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 718-nm. Driven by BD innovation, R718 is designed to be excited by the red laser (627–640-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 720-nm (e.g., a 720/40-nm bandpass filter). R718 is a brighter alternative to Alexa Fluor™ 700. R718 is also a bright small molecule alternative to APC-R700 with lower spread into the APC detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
