CD13 Rat anti-Mouse, Brilliant Violet 605, Clone: R3-242, BD Optibuild
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 740359
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.
This antibody is conjugated to BD Horizon BV605 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max of 602-nm, BD Horizon BV605 can be excited by a violet laser and detected with a standard 610/20-nm filter set. BD Horizon BV605 is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 and an acceptor dye with an Em max at 605-nm. Due to the excitation of the acceptor dye by the green (532 nm) and yellow-green (561 nm) lasers, there will be significant spillover into the PE and BD Horizon PE-CF594 detectors off the green or yellow-green lasers. BD Horizon BV605 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting brightness equivalent to PE conjugates and can be used as a third color off of the violet laser.
