KLRG1 Hamster anti-Mouse, PE-CF594, Clone: 2F1, BD
Hamster Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 565393
The 2F1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to KLRG1 ( K iller cell L ectin-like R eceptor mmunoreceptor T yrosine-based I nhibitory M otif); its ligand has not been identified KLRG1 is expressed mainly as a homodimeric molecule consisting of two N-glycosylated subunits of approximately 30-38 kDa. The level of KLRG1 expression is reduced in MHC class I-deficient mice, although direct binding of KLRG1 to MHC class I antigens could not be detected. Cross-linking of KLRG1 by 2F1 mAb reduces TCR-mediated Ca++ mobilization and cytotoxic responses (but not IFN- γproduction) by CD8+ T cells and inhibits IFN- γand TNF- α production and redirected lysis by NK cells.
This antibody is conjugated to BD Horizon PE-CF594, which has been developed exclusively by BD Biosciences as a better alternative to PE-Texas Red. PE-CF594 excites and emits at similar wavelengths to PE-Texas Red yet exhibits improved brightness and spectral characteristics. Due to PE having maximal absorption peaks at 496nm and 564nm, PE-CF594 can be excited by the blue (488-nm), green (532-nm) and yellow-green (561-nm) lasers and can be detected with the same filter set as PE-Texas Red (eg, 610/20-nm filter).
