Description: The mShad150 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD150, an ~70 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein also known as Signaling Lymphocyte Activation Molecule (SLAM). CD150 is expressed by T cells, in particular Th1, and B cells; this expression is rapidly upregulated upon activation. Immature thymocytes and dendritic cells also express this antigen. Signaling through SLAM in T cells induces proliferation and augmentation of the interferon-gamma response. Furthermore, SLAM is thought to play a role in adhesion between the T cell and antigen-presenting cell. The mShad150 antibody has been reported to also stain the CD150+CD244-CD48-CD41- population of pluripotent hematopoietic stem cells. Applications Reported: This mShad150 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This mShad150 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.5 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. Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive photo-induced oxidation. Please protect this vial and stained samples from light.Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (cat. 00-8222) (100 µL cell sample + 100 µL 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: 488-561 nm; Emission: 775 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered. CD150 (SLAM, Signaling Lymphocyte Activation Molecule) belongs to the immunoglobulin gene superfamily, and is involved in T cell stimulation. SLAM is constitutively expressed on peripheral blood memory T cells, T cell clones, immature thymocytes, and a proportion of B cells, and is rapidly induced on naive T cells after activation. Activated B cells express the membrane bound form, the soluble form and the cytoplasmic isoforms of SLAM. It is suggested that signalling through homophilic SLAM-SLAM binding during B to B and B to T cell interactions enhances the expansion and differentiation of activated B cells. Reports suggest that the extracellular domain of CD150 is the receptor for the measles virus and acts as a co-activator on T cells and B cells. Moreover, CD150 is thought to interact with SH2D1A and with PTPN11 via its cytoplasmic domain. Mutations CD150 gene may be associated with X-linked lympho-proliferative disease (XLP).
