CD13 Rat anti-Mouse, BUV395, Clone: R3-242, BD Optibuild
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 740243
The R3-242 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to aminopeptidase N (APN), which has been reported to be the mouse CD13 homologue. APN is expressed in a variety of mammalian tissues, including intestinal and renal epithelial brush border, endothelium, liver, lung, and brain. In lymphoid tissues, R3-242 mAb is reported to detect APN on monocytes, macrophages, mast cells, dendritic cells, and B lymphocytes, but not on T cells, and thymocytes. However, the reported reactivity with B cells may be non-specific, via binding to the Fc γreceptors (CD16/CD32). This observation is in agreement with reports using different antibodies to mouse APN . APN may play a role in antigen presentation in the immune system. R3-242 mAb does not inhibit the enzymatic activity of APN.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BUV395 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Ultraviolet family of dyes. This dye has been exclusively developed by BD Biosciences to have minimal spillover into other detectors, making it an optimal choice for multicolor flow cytometry. With an Ex Max at 348nm and an Em Max at 395nm, BD Horizon BUV395 can be excited with a 355nm laser and detected with a 379/28 filter.
