CD235a (Glycophorin A) Monoclonal Antibody (10F7MN), NovaFluor™ Blue 585
The monoclonal antibody 10F7MN recognizes human glycophorin A (also known as CD235a). The antibody can see both the M and N alleles. Glycophorin A is a 151 amino acid sialoglycoprotein found on the erythrocyte (RBC) and erthyroid progenitor cell membrane at about 500,000 copies per cell. The gene for glycophorin resides on chromosome 4 and has 2 allelic forms: M and N, which differ in two amino acids. The M group possesses Ser1 and Gly5 while the N group has Leu1 and Glu5. Recent data suggest that exposure to toxins can cause mutation or loss of an allele resulting in phenotypic changes. Studies are also beginning to correlate genotype/phenotype with predisposition to cancer and heart disease.
Applications Reported: This 10F7MN antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This 10F7MN antibody has been pre-diluted and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This may be used at 5 µL (0.8 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.
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
