CD85j (ILT2) Monoclonal Antibody (HP-F1), NovaFluor™ Blue 660-120S
The monoclonal antibody HP-F1 recognizes CD85j, also known as ILT2, LILRB1, and LIR1. CD85j is a member of the ILT (immunoglobulin-like transcript)/LIR (leukocyte Ig-like receptor)/MIR (monocyte Ig-like receptor) family. CD85j is a single transmembrane glycoprotein with a long cytoplasmic domain containing 4 ITIMs which signal through interactions with SHP-1. Expression is found on myeloid cells (monocytes and dendritic cells) and some lymphoid cells including, subsets of NK, T and B cells. Expression has been correlated with leukemias such as ALL and CLL. Expression on CD8+ cells correlates with effector cell function and plays an important role in viral infections, including HIV, Ebstein Barr and CMV. The ligands for CD85j are MHC Class I molecules such as HLA-G, A, F, B27, E and F. The monoclonal antibody HP-F1 has been shown to reduce the amount of CD16- dependent cytolytic activity of functional NK cells.
Applications Reported: This HP-F1 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This HP-F1 antibody has been pre-diluted and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This may 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.
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
