CD244 Mouse anti-Human, Brilliant Violet 421, Clone: 2-69, BD
Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 565750
The 2-69 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to 2B4 which is also known as CD244. CD244 is an approximately 63-70 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein. It is a SLAM submember (SLAMF4) and CD2 family member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. CD244 was originally identified in the mouse as a non-MHC-restricted cytotoxicity mediator present on NK cells and CD8+ T cells. In humans, CD244 is expressed on NK cells, γδ T cells, subsets of effector and memory CD8+ T cells, monocytes, eosinophils and basophils. This expression pattern suggests a broad role for CD244 in the regulation of leukocyte activation. CD244 binds CD48 with high affinity. CD244 may serve both stimulatory and inhibitory functions depending on a number of factors. These include the intensity and duration of CD244 interactions with its ligands as well as the presence of other signals generated through different receptor-ligand interactions. 2B4 was clustered as CD244 in the VIIth HLDA workshop.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max at 421-nm, BD Horizon BV421 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the standard Pacific Blue filter set (eg, 450/50-nm filter). BD Horizon BV421 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue conjugates.
