CD9 Rat anti-Mouse, Brilliant Violet 650, Clone: KMC8, BD
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 564236
The KMC8 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD9 which is also known as Tetraspanin-29 (Tspan29). CD9 is a 24-kDa member of the transmembrane 4 superfamily, also called the tretraspanin family. In the mouse, CD9 is present on bone marrow myeloid cells, stromal cells, and megakaryocyte-committed progenitors; subsets of peripheral T and B lymphocytes; and neutrophils, platelets, dendritic cells, and bone marrow-derived macrophages. CD9 has been found to be associated with integrins and other cell-surface receptors. It appears to play roles in signal transduction and in regulating cellular adhesive properties. CD9 can also reportedly participate in T-cell costimulation and induction of apoptosis. The KMC8 antibody reportedly blocks certain CD9 functions and activates macrophages.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV650 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 with an Ex Max of 405-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 650-nm. BD Horizon BV650 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in a filter used to detect APC-like dyes (eg, 660/20-nm filter). Due to the excitation and emission characteristics of the acceptor dye, there will be spillover into the APC and Alexa Fluor 700 detectors. However, the spillover can be corrected through compensation as with any other dye combination.
