CD146 Rat anti-Mouse, Brilliant Violet 605, Clone: ME-9F1, BD Optibuild
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 740434
The ME-9F1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to mouse CD146. The CD146 adhesion molecule is a type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein and member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. CD146 is expressed by blood vessel endothelial cells and may play roles in forming intercellular junctions between endothelial cells and influencing the transendothelial migration of other cell types. CD146 is also expressed by some melanoma cell lines, NK cells and neutrophils. CD146 is not detectable on mouse monocytes, dendritic cells, T cells, NKT cells, B cells and smooth muscle cells. Increased expression of CD146 is reportedly associated with NK cell maturation and may be used to characterize different functional NK cell subsets. Activated CD146-positive mouse NK cells reportedly are less cytotoxic and secrete less IFN- γthan their CD146-negative counterparts.
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.
