Description: The eBioKMC8 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD9, a 24 kDa member of the transmembrane 4 superfamily. This family is characterized by the presence of four hydrophobic domains spanning the cell membrane and short N- and C-terminal cytoplasmic domains. CD9 is expressed by several cell types including monocytes, macrophages, platelets, early B cells, activated B and T cells, dendritic cells, eosinophils, basophils, endothelial cells, myoblasts and neuroblasts. On T cells, CD9 functions as a co-stimulatory molecule on naive T cells. Furthermore, CD9 is expressed in oocytes, and CD9-deficiency results in sterility caused by defective gamete fusion. In mouse macrophages, CD9 functionally associates with FcgammaRs to modify signals for phagocytosis and inflammatory responses. In mouse B cells, it was discovered that CD9 is a marker for marginal zone B cells, B1 cells, and plasma cells. In dendritic cells, recently it was demonstrated that CD9 facilitates the association of heterologous MHC II molecules. The level of CD9 expression is subject to donor variability.
Applications Reported: This KMC8 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This KMC8 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse bone marrow cells. This may be used at less than or equal to 1 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 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. Please protect this vial and stained samples from light.
Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (Product # 00-8222) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (Product # 00-5333) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically.
Excitation: 405 nm; Emission: 600 nm; Laser: Violet Laser
