Description: This OV9A2 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD59, which is also known as Protectin. This GPI-linked membrane glycoprotein shares structural homology with the murine Ly-6 superfamily. CD59 is expressed on all human lymphocytes, monocytes, granulocytes, and erythrocytes. This protein is also expressed on non-hematopoietic cells, including endothelial cells and neurons. By binding the complement components C8 and C9, CD59 inhibits assembly of the membrane attack complex and cytolytic activity by complement. CD59 interacts with CD2 to modulate T cell adhesion, and also plays a role in T cell activation. Finally, altered expression of CD55 and CD59 on human peripheral blood cells has been observed in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
Crossblocking studies indicate that the OV9A2 monoclonal antibody binds the same epitope as MEM-43.
Applications Reported: This OV9A2 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This OV9A2 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can 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 600 is a tandem dye that can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 600 nm. We recommend using a 610/20 bandpass filter. 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.
Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive to photo-induced oxidation. Protect this vial and stained samples from light.
Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (cat. 00-8222) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (cat. 00-5333) for up to 3 days in the dark at 2-8°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorochrome performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically.
Excitation: 405 nm; Emission: 600 nm; Laser: Violet Laser
