CD157 Monoclonal Antibody (eBioSY11B5 (SY11B5)), NovaFluor™ Yellow 610
The eBioSY11B5 monoclonal antibody recognizes human CD157 (Mo5, BST-1). CD157 is a 42-45 kDa, GPI-anchored protein with structural and functional similarities with CD38. CD157 was initially cloned because of its expression on monocytes and macrophages, and was subsequently discovered to be the same protein named BST-1, discovered for its expression on bone marrow stromal cells and its ability to stimulate the proliferation of a mouse pre-B cell line. CD157 is a pleiotropic ectoenzyme and is thought to act independently as an enzyme and receptor. Similar to CD38, CD157 is involved in the metabolism of NAD+ and this activity may be involved in regulating intracellular Ca2+ levels. As a receptor, upon binding of its putative ligand, CD157 is thought to initiate a signal transduction cascade resulting in the phosphorylation of cytoplasmic proteins including focal adhesion kinase (FAK). The mechanism and functional significance of CD157-initiated signal transduction remain to be fully characterized.
Applications Reported: This eBioSY11B5 (SY11B5) antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This eBioSY11B5 (SY11B5) antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.125 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.
Our internal testing shows that NovaFluor Yellow 610 non-specifically stains B cells in SJL mice. Non-specific staining has not been observed in BALB/c or C57BL/6 mice. Other strains have not been tested. See the Antibody Testing Data for an example of this strain-dependent difference.
NovaFluor dyes are not compatible with DNA intercalating viability dyes. Do not use viability dyes such as propidium iodide, 7-actinomycin D (7-AAD) and DAPI. Invitrogen LIVE/DEAD Fixable Dead Cell stains are recommended for use with NovaFluor dyes.
Each NovaFluor conjugate or kit is shipped with CellBlox Blocking Buffer. Use this buffer whenever staining with NovaFluor conjugates, including single-color compensation controls using cells. Whenever possible, we recommend adding CellBlox Blocking Buffer to antibody cocktails/master mixes prior to combining with cells. Add 5 µL per sample (regardless of the number of NovaFluors in your panel) to use the antibody cocktail as intended. For single-color controls, use 5 µL of CellBlox Blocking Buffer per 100µL of cell sample containing 10^3 to 10^8 cells.
NovaFluor conjugates are based on Phiton™ technology utilizing novel nucleic acid dye structures that allow for engineered fluorescent signatures with consideration for spillover and spread impacts. Learn more
