Description: The MR1 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD154, a 39 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein also known as CD40 ligand (CD40L). CD154 is expressed transiently by activated T cells. Through its binding to CD40 on antigen presenting cells (APC) including B cells, monocytes/macrophages, and dendritic cells, it serves a crucial function in T cell-APC cognate interaction. CD154-interaction with CD40 transduces signals for T-dependent B cell activation and induces B cells to enter the cell cycle.
For staining for flow cytometric analysis, it is important to stimulate enriched T cells or enriched CD4 cells (using depletion strategy) prior to staining with MR1.
Applications Reported: This MR1 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This MR1 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of stimulated mouse splenocytes. This may be used at less than or equal to 0.5 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
Super Bright 436 can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 436 nm. We recommend using a 450/50 bandpass filter, or equivalent. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.
When using two or more Super Bright dye-conjugated antibodies in a staining panel, it is recommended to use Super Bright Complete Staining Buffer (Product # SB-4401) to minimize any non-specific polymer interactions. Please refer to the datasheet for Super Bright Staining Buffer for more information.
Excitation: 405 nm; Emission: 436 nm; Laser: Violet Laser
