CD25 Rat anti-Mouse, Brilliant Violet 510, Clone: 3C7, BD Optibuild
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 740106
The 3C7 monoclo nal antibody specifically binds to CD25, the low affinity IL-2 Receptor (IL-2Rα, p55) expressed on activated T and B lymphocytes from all mouse strains tested. IL-2Rα by itself is not a signaling receptor. However, it can combine with IL-2 Receptor β (CD122) and γc (CD132) chains to form high-affinity, signaling receptor complexes for IL-2. Resting T and B lymphocytes and resting and activated NK cells do not express IL-2Rα. CD25 is transiently expressed at a low level during normal B-cell development in th e bone marrow on the CD45R/B220low TdT- sIg- Pre-B/Pre-B-II and CD45R/B220low TdT- sIgM+ sIgD- immature B stages, but not on the CD45R/B220low TdT+ sIg- Pro-B/Pre B-I stage nor on CD45R/B220high TdTsIgM+ sIgD+ mature B cells. It is expressed at a higher level during a very early stage of T-cell development in fetal and adult thymus. Peripheral CD25+ CD4+ T lymphocytes called regulatory T (Treg) cells are involved in the maintenance of self-tolerance. It has also been reported that dendritic cells express CD25, recognized by mAb 7D4, another CD25-specific antibody. The 3C7 antibody recognizes an epitope of CD25 which is distinct from those recognized by other CD25-specific mAbs, 7D4 and PC61. 3C7 blocks the binding of IL-2 to CD25.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV510 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 405-nm and Em Max at 510-nm, BD Horizon BV510 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the BD Horizon V500 (525/50-nm) filter set. BD Horizon BV510 conjugates are useful for the detection of dim markers off the violet laser.
