Description: This 2F1 monoclonal antibody reacts with the mouse Killer cell Lectin-like Receptor G1 (KLRG1), also known as Mast cell Function-associated Antigen (MAFA). KLRG1 is a homodimer of glycosylated 30-38 kDa subunits and contains a cytoplasmic motif similar to the immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motif (ITIM). Rat MAFA was identified as an antigen specific to rat mast cells; however, the expression of mouse KLRG1/MAFA using 2F1 has not been detected on the surface of mouse mast cell lines, bone marrow-derived mast cells, or peritoneal mast cells. This antigen is expressed on approximately one-third of mouse NK cells and a subset of T cells. MHC class I molecules regulate KLRG1 via interactions with class I-specific inhibitory Ly49 molecules and SHP-1 signaling. Although KLRG1 and Ly49 are both lectin-like inhibitory receptors that are regulated by class I MHC expression, the effects of this on cell surface expression of these molecules are opposing, and the underlying regulatory mechanisms distinct.
Applications Reported: This 2F1 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This 2F1 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes. 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 645 is a tandem dye that can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 645 nm. We recommend using a 660/20 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: 645 nm; Laser: Violet Laser
