CD8b Monoclonal Antibody (SIDI8BEE), NovaFluor™ Blue 690
The SIDI8BEE monoclonal antibody reacts with human and rhesus macaque CD8 beta. The CD8b chain associates with the CD8a chain to form the CD8ab heterodimer expressed on the surface of a majority of thymocytes, and on peripheral cytotoxic alpha beta TCR T cells. The CD8 receptor complex binds to MHC class I and plays a role in T cell development and activation of mature T cells. Long been thought to exist either as a heterodimer of the alpha and beta chain or as a homodimer of alpha chains, beta chains have now been shown to homodimerize as well. SIDI8BEE can detect the CD8 beta chain in both the CD8ab heterodimer and the CD8bb homodimer.
SIDI8BEE is cross-reactive to human and rhesus macaque CD8b. Other non-human primate species have not been tested.
Applications Reported: This SIDI8BEE antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This SIDI8BEE antibody has been pre-diluted and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This may be used at 5 µL (0.8 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.
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
