CD3 Mouse anti-Human, Brilliant Ultraviolet 737, Clone: UCHT1, BD Horizon
Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 612750
The UCHT1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the human CD3 ε -chain, a 20-kDa subunit of the CD3/T cell antigen receptor complex. CD3 ε is expressed on 70-80% of normal human peripheral blood lymphocytes and 60-85% of thymocytes. Studies from the HLDA Workshop show that this antibody is mitogenic for CD3 ε -positive cells when used in conjunction with costimulatory agents such as pokeweed mitogen or anti-CD28 antibody. CD3 plays a central role in signal transduction during antigen recognition. The UCHT1 antibody stains both surface and intracellular CD3 ε unlike the other CD3 clone, HIT3a, that stains only extracellular CD3 ε .
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BUV737 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Ultraviolet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BUV395 with an Ex Max of 348-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 737-nm. BD Horizon Brilliant BUV737 can be excited by the ultraviolet laser (355 nm) and detected with a 740/35 filter. Due to the excitation of the acceptor dye by other laser lines, there may be significant spillover into channels detecting Alexa Fluor 700-like dyes (e.g., 712/20-nm filter).
