The HM79b monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes an extracellular epitope of Ig β chain (Igβ or CD79b), a 35-40-kDa transmembrane protein which forms an 80-90-kDa disulfide-linked heterodimer with Ig α chain (Igα or CD79a, 30-35 kDa). On mature B lymphocytes, the CD79a/CD79b heterodimers are non-covalently associated with surface IgM to form the B-cell receptor complex (BCR). The presence of CD79a/CD79b is necessary for surface expression of the BCR and signal transduction via the BCR in B lymphocytes and pre-B cells. It was recently reported that CD79b may be expressed on the cell surface preceding the appearance of surface IgM during B-lymphocyte development. At this pro-B-cell stage, CD79b participates in signal transduction involved in the regulation of B-cell development. It should be noted that multi-parameter flow cytometric analyses of bone marrow suspensions performed at BD Biosciences Pharmingen have been unable to detect surface staining by HM79b mAb on CD45R/B220+ IgM- cells.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BB700, which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue family of dyes. It is a polymer-based tandem dye developed exclusively by BD Biosciences. With an excitation max of 485 nm and an emission max of 693 nm, BD Horizon BB700 can be excited by the 488 nm laser and detected in a standard PerCP-Cy™5.5 set (eg, 695/40nm filter). This dye provides a much brighter alternative to PerCP-Cy5.5 with less cross laser excitation off the 405 nm and 355 nm lasers.BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue 700 (BB700) is a dye that was exclusively developed by BD Biosciences as brighter alternative to PerCP-Cy5.5. This dye also has less cross laser excitation off the 405 nm laser, resulting in less spillover into the violet channels compared to PerCP-Cy5.5.  Due to similar excitation and emission properties, BD Horizon BB700 and PerCP-Cy5.5 cannot be used simultaneously.
