Description: This 13F12F2 monoclonal antibody reacts with human killer cell lectin-like receptor subfamily G, member 1 (KLRG1), a type II transmembrane inhibitor receptor of the C-type lectin superfamily that contains an ITIM domain. This inhibitory receptor is expressed on subsets of gamma-delta T cells, NK (CD56dim), CD8+ and CD4+ T Cells. KLRG1 is expressed primarily by cells with an effector/memory phenotype that are short-lived, but capable of immediate effector cell function. Cadherin-E, -N, and -R are ligands for KLRG1. Cadherin/KLRG1 interaction inhibits cytolytic activity and proliferation. The percentage of KLRG1 positive cells can vary considerably, depending on antigen experience. The clones 13F12F2 and 13A2 appear to recognize a similar epitope based on cross-blocking studies.
Applications Reported: This 13F12F2 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This 13F12F2 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of human peripheral blood cells. This can 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.
Super Bright 702 is a tandem dye that can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 702 nm. We recommend using a 710/50 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 Staining Buffer (cat. SB-4400) to minimize any non-specific polymer interactions. Please refer to the datasheet for Super Bright Staining Buffer.
Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive to photo-induced oxidation. Protect this vial and stained samples from light.
Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (cat. 00-8222) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (cat. 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: 702 nm; Laser: Violet Laser
