CD9 Rat anti-Mouse, BB700, Clone: KMC8 (also known as KMC 8), BD Optibuild™
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 742131
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™ 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.
