CD49d Rat anti-Mouse, Brilliant Violet 711, Clone: 9C10(MFR4.B), BD Optibuild
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 740672
The 9C10 (MFR4.B) monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the Integrin α 4 chain (CD49d), which is expressed as a heterodimer with either of two β chains, β 1 or β 7. The α 4β 1 integrin (VLA-4, CD49d/CD29) is expressed on most peripheral lymphocytes, thymocytes, and monocytes; while the α β 7 also preferentially binds to the mucosal vascular addressin, MAdCAM-1. Although the 9C10 (MFR4.B) antibody alone has been reported to have little function-blocking activity, it can augment the inhibitory effects of mAb R1-2 (Cat. No. 553153), resulting in almost complete inhibition of VLA-4 binding to VCAM-1.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV711 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 with an Ex Max of 405-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 711-nm. BD Horizon BV711 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in a filter used to detect Cy5.5 / Alexa Fluor 700-like dyes (eg, 712/20-nm filter). Due to the excitation and emission characteristics of the acceptor dye, there may be moderate spillover into the Alexa Fluor 700 and PerCP-Cy5.5 detectors. However, the spillover can be corrected through compensation as with any other dye combination.
