Description: This P4A10 monoclonal antibody reacts with canine CD25, the 55-kDa interleukin-2 receptor alpha (IL-2Ralpha) chain. As in humans and mice, CD25 in dogs is expressed by early T and B lineage progenitors as well as by activated mature T and B lymphocytes. CD25 associates with the IL-2R beta (CD122) and gamma (CD132) chains to form the high-affinity IL-2 receptor. On its own, CD25 binds IL-2 with low affinity. Along with CD4 and Foxp3, CD25 is a major marker used to define regulatory T cells.
The P4A10 antibody has been reported to recognize the same epitope as the anti-human CD25 monoclonal antibody ACT-1, but with greater affinity.
Applications Reported: This P4A10 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This P4A10 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal canine peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.25 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 436 can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 436 nm. We recommend using a 450/50 bandpass filter, or equivalent. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.
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.
Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (Product # 00-8222) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (Product # 00-5333) 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: 436 nm; Laser: Violet Laser
