CD185 (CXCR5) Monoclonal Antibody (MU5UBEE), NovaFluor™ Yellow 610
The MU5UBEE monoclonal antibody reacts with human and non-human primate CD185. CD185, which is also known as C-X-C chemokine receptor 5 (CXCR5) and Burkitt lymphoma receptor 1 (BLR1), is a seven transmembrane G protein-coupled receptor originally identified in Burkitt's lymphoma. In peripheral blood, CD185 is expressed on B cells, CD4+ T cells (but not Th1 or Th2 cells), as well as on a subpopulation of memory (CD45RO+) T cells. Circulating CD185+ T cells are in a resting state and migrate to the lymph nodes due to expression of CCR7 and CD62L. In tonsil, CD185 is expressed on nearly all CD4+ cells together with CD45RO and activation markers such as CD69 and ICOS. Tonsillar CD185+ cells have been shown to induce antibody production when co-cultured with B cells, thus supporting their role in providing help to B cells. Furthermore, this chemokine receptor plays a critical role in lymphocyte trafficking, in particular T cell migration into the B cell follicles of germinal centers in response to CXCL13, making CD185 an established marker of follicular helper T cells. The MU5UBEE monoclonal antibody also crossreacts with Rhesus macaque.
Applications Reported: This MU5UBEE antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This MU5UBEE 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
