CD2 Rat anti-Mouse, Brilliant Violet 605, Clone: RM2-5, BD Optibuild
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 740338
The RM2-5 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the immunoglobulin superfamily adhesion molecule, CD2 (LFA-2). CD2 is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein that serves as the the major receptor for CD48 in the mouse. CD2 is involved in T-cell activation, immunoregulation, and thymocyte maturation. In the mouse, CD2 is expressed on peripheral T lymphocytes, B lymphocytes, and NK cells, and a subpopulation of intraepithelial T lymphocytes. CD2 is expressed throughout mouse thymic ontogeny, except for distinct subsets of the CD4-CD8- early thymocytes. In the mouse bone marrow, CD2 is expressed on B220+ sIg+ CD43- pre-B cells, but not on CD43+ pro-B cells. The RM2-5 antibody is one of a set of five anti-mouse CD2 monoclonal antibodies that were classified into two groups according to their mutual competition in binding to cell surface CD2 and which block CD2-mediated cell-cell adhesion.
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.
