Description: This RR3-15 monoclonal antibody reacts with the mouse T-cell receptor (TCR) V beta 11 chain. Composed of an alpha and beta chain, TCR specificity is typically determined by Va, Ja, Vb, Db, and Jb gene rearrangement. The RR3-15 antibody recognizes the V beta 11 chain on T cells from mouse strains with the b haplotype in the Tcrb gene complex, including C57BL/6 and B10, but is absent in mice with the a haplotype, such as C57L, SJL, and SWR. In addition, reports indicate that Vbeta11+ T cells are eliminated in mice bearing the MHC Class II I-E molecule. Finally, V beta 11+CD4+ T cells have been associated with graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) severity.
The RR3-15 antibody has been reported to activate V beta 11+ T cells.
Applications Reported: This RR3-15 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This RR3-15 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse lymph node cells. This may be used at less than or equal to 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
Super Bright 436 can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 436 nm. We recommend using a 450/50 bandpass filter, or equivalent. 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.
Excitation: 405 nm; Emission: 436 nm; Laser: Violet Laser
