Description: The monoclonal antibody 3DS304M recognizes mouse CD304 (Neuropilin-1), a type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein present on the surface of multiple cell types, including: regulatory T cells (Treg), NKT cells, DC, certain types of stem cells, neurons, endothelial cells, and some neoplastic cells. Neuropilin-1, in complex with plexins, serves as a co-receptor for type 3 semaphorins in growing neurons. It is also involved in the process of angiogenesis being a part of a functional receptor for VEGF in endothelial cells. In mice, Neuropilin-1 is expressed on thymus-derived natural Treg but not peripherally induced Treg. In addition, transient expression on recently activated non-regulatory T cells has been observed. Neuropilin-1 has been used as a marker of recent thymic emigrants in the mouse iNKT cell population. It has been shown that Neuropilin-1 forms a complex with TGF beta receptors, activating the latent form of TGF beta (LAP-TGF beta 1) and augmenting canonical Smad2/3 signaling.
This 3DS304M antibody will recognize formaldehyde-fixed as well as methanol-treated epitopes.
Applications Reported: This 3DS304M antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This 3DS304M antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes. This may be used at less than or equal to 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
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.
