CD7 Monoclonal Antibody (eBio124-1D1 (124-1D1)), NovaFluor™ Red 725
The eBio124-1D1 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD7, also known as gp40 and Leu9. CD7, a 40 kD receptor, is a member of the immunoglobulin gene superfamily. The N-terminal amino acid sequence (aa1-107) is highly homologous to Ig kappa light chain sequence; while the carboxyl-terminal region of the extracellular domain is proline-rich and has been postulated to form a stalk from which the Ig domain projects. CD7 is expressed on the majority of immature and mature T lymphocytes, and T cell leukemias. It is also found on natural killer cells, a small suppopulation of normal B cells and on maligant B cells. Cross-linking surface CD7 positively modulates T cell and NK cell activity, as measured by calcium flux, expression of adhesion molecules, cytokine secretion and proliferation. CD7 associates directly with phosphoinositol 3'-kinase. CD7 ligation induces production of D-3 phosphoinositides and tyrosine phosphorylation.
A clonogenic subpopulation of human CD34(+) CD38(-) cord blood cells that express CD45RA and HLA-DR and high levels of the CD7 has been reported. These cells possess the capacity for lymphopoiesis. They can generate B-cells, natural killer cells, and dendritic cells but do not possess the capacity to develop into myeloid cells or erythroid cells. The CD7(+) phenotype distinguishes primitive human lymphoid progenitors from pluripotent stem cells.
Applications Reported: This eBio124-1D1 (124-1D1) antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This eBio124-1D1 (124-1D1) antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
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
