Description: The monoclonal antibody CC1 recognizes CD66a, also known as carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule 1 (CEACAM1), biliary glycoprotein, and BPG. Expression of CD66a is found on brush borders, epithelial, and endothelial cells. In hematopoietic cells expression is found abundantly on B cells, as well as some NKs, monocytes, DCs, and granulocytes. Although low levels of mRNA have been identified in T cells in humans, resting mouse T lymphocytes are not reported to express CD66a, as confirmed by lack of staining with CC1 antibody. In humans, expression levels of CD66a have been used to identify malignancies. CD66a plays a key role as a regulator of BCR activation of B lymphocytes.
An alternate allele, CEACAM1b, is expressed in SJL mice; therefore, CC1 does not stain SJL tissue. The monoclonal CC1 has been shown to block viral infection and also enhance B cell proliferation when combined with IgM crosslinking.
Applications Reported: This CC1 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This CC1 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes. This may be used at less than or equal to 0.125 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 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.
Excitation: 405 nm; Emission: 436 nm; Laser: Violet Laser
