CD135 Rat anti-Mouse, PE-CF594, Clone: A2F10.1, BD
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 562537
The A2F10 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to Flk-2/Flt3 (Ly-72, CD135), a receptor protein tyrosine kinase closely related to c-kit, c-fms, and PDGF Receptor of the immunoglobulin superfamily. The Flt3 message is detected in hematopoietic stem cells and primitive progenitor cells in fetal liver, adult bone marrow, and fetal and adult thymus, as well as brain, placenta, and testis; but it is absent in more mature hematopoietic cells. In flow cytometric analysis, the A2F10 antibody recognizes Flt3-transfected Y3 cells (rat myeloma), but not the parent cell line in addition to recognizing early B lymphoid lineage cells in juvenile and adult bone marrow. A role for CD135 in the regulation of hematopoiesis is suggested by the observations that soluble Flk-2/Flt3 ligand can both stimulate proliferation of stem cell-enriched fetal liver, fetal thymus, and adult bone marrow populations and enhance their responses to other growth factors in vitro. In addition, injection of Flk-2/Flt3 ligand stimulates extramedullary hematopoiesis in the mouse spleen and accumulation of dendritic cells in the hematopoietic system. mAb A2F10.1 is reported to immunoprecipitate a 150-kDa surface protein from the murine myeloblast cell line M1, which naturally expresses CD135, and to inhibit the binding of Flk-2/Flt3 ligand to CD135.
This antibody is conjugated to BD Horizon™ PE-CF594, which has been developed exclusively by BD Biosciences as a better alternative to PE-Texas Red™. PE-CF594 excites and emits at similar wavelengths to PE-Texas Red™ yet exhibits improved brightness and spectral characteristics. Due to PE having maximal absorption peaks at 496nm and 564nm, PE-CF594 can be excited by the blue (488-nm), green (532-nm) and yellow-green (561-nm) lasers and can be detected with the same filter set as PE-Texas Red™ (eg 610/20-nm filter).
