CD33 Mouse anti-Human, Brilliant Violet 650, Clone: WM53 (also known as WM-53), BD Optibuild
Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 740573
The WM53 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to human CD33. CD33 is a 67 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein. It is expressed on monocytes, activated T cells, myeloid progenitors, mast cells and weakly on polymorphonuclear cells. CD33 is absent on normal platelets, lymphocytes, erythrocytes, and hematopoietic stem cells. Reports indicate that this glycoprotein can function as a sialic acid-dependent cell adhesion molecule and this function can be modulated by endogenous sialoglycoconjugates when CD33 is expressed on the membrane.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV650 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 with an Ex Max of 405-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 650-nm. BD Horizon BV650 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in a filter used to detect APC-like dyes (eg, 660/20-nm filter). Due to the excitation and emission characteristics of the acceptor dye, there will be spillover into the APC and Alexa Fluor 700 detectors. However, the spillover can be corrected through compensation as with any other dye combination.
