Description: This 3DS223H monoclonal antibody recognizes human CD223 also known as Lymphocyte Activation Gene 3 (LAG-3). LAG-3 is a 70-kDa surface glycoprotein belonging to the Ig superfamily with homology to CD4. LAG-3 binds to MHC class II with higher affinity than CD4 and is thought to be involved in the negative regulation of T cell activation and homeostatic proliferation. Surface expression of LAG-3 has been reported on activated T cells (including regulatory T cells) and NK cells. CD8+ T cells usually express LAG-3 at significantly higher levels than CD4+ T cells. Coexpression of LAG-3 and CD49b has been proposed to identify human and mouse Type 1 regulatory T cells (Tr1 cells).
This 3DS223H antibody will recognize a formaldehyde-fixed epitope.
Applications Reported: This 3DS223H antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This 3DS223H antibody has been pre-diluted and tested by flow cytometric analysis of stimulated normal human peripheral blood cells. This may be used at 5 µL (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.
Super Bright 780 is a tandem dye that can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 780 nm. We recommend using a 780/60 bandpass filter. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.
In some experiments, we have observed that compensation values for Super Bright 780-conjugated antibodies are higher in the violet 450/50 channel when using UltraComp eBeads microspheres (Product # 01-2222-42) as compared to single-color stained cells. In such circumstances, we would recommend setting compensation with cells. We have also observed this in some experiments using AbC Total Antibody Compensation beads (Product # A10497).
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.
Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive to photo-induced oxidation. Please protect this vial and stained samples from light.
Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (Product # 00-8222-49) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (Product # 00-5333-57) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically.
Excitation: 405 nm; Emission: 780 nm; Laser: Violet Laser
