CD205 Monoclonal Antibody (205yekta), NovaFluor™ Yellow 755
The 205yekta antibody reacts with mouse CD205, also known as DEC-205 (dendritic and epithelial cells, 205 kDa). CD205 is an integral membrane glycoprotein involved in antigen uptake, trafficking and presentation that improves the induction of antigen-specific T cell immunity. CD205 is highly expressed by CD8+ dendritic cells (DCs) and also expressed at different levels by bone marrow Gr1+ cells, Langerhans cells, (BMDC) bone marrow derived DCs and thymic epithelial cells.
CD205 has been shown to bind to PE-Cy5.5 antibody and streptavidin conjugates; therefore, this format should not be used on CD205+ dendritic cells.
Applications Reported: This 205yekta antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This 205yekta antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analyis of mouse bone marrow cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.2 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.
Our internal testing shows that NovaFluor Yellow 755 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. Use 5 µL of CellBlox Blocking Buffer per stained 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
