CD102 Rat anti-Mouse, Brilliant Violet 421, Clone: 3C4(mIC2/4), BD Optibuild
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 740018
The 3C4 (mIC2/4) monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the mouse ICAM-2 (CD102) cell surface glycoprotein, a ligand for LFA-1. CD102 is constitutively expressed on endothelial cells, T and B lymphocytes, and alveolar walls. It is also expressed on a variety of leukocyte cell lines. CD102 does not appear to be involved in the development of hematopoietic cells. In a model for allergic asthma, endothelial CD102 mediates the transmigration of eosinophils (but not lymphocytes, monocytes, or macrophages) into the airway lumen. The 3C4 (mIC2/4) antibody blocks interactions between ICAM-2 and LFA-1.
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.
