Description: The MBSA43 monoclonal antibody reacts with human T cell immunoreceptor with Ig and ITIM domains (TIGIT), which is also known as VSTM3 or WUCAM. This 26 kDa protein is a member of the poliovirus receptor (PVR) family. The expression of TIGIT has been reported on NK cells, regulatory T cells, follicular T helper cells, memory CD4+ T cells, and CD8+ T cells, but it is not expressed on B cells or naive CD4+ T cells. TIGIT may be upregulated on naive CD4+ T cells upon activation. TIGIT can interact with certain members of the PVR and PVR-like families, including CD155, and also mediates the interaction of NK and T cells with antigen presenting cells, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells that express PVR and PVR-like proteins. MBSA43 is reported to crossreact with Rhesus macaque. Applications Reported: This MBSA43 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This MBSA43 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.125 µg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. PerCP-eFluor® 710 emits at 710 nm and is excited with the blue laser (488 nm); it can be used in place of PerCP-Cyanine5.5.We recommend using a 710/50 bandpass filter, however, the 695/40 bandpass filter is an acceptable alternative. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome. Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive to photo-induced oxidation. Please protect this vial and stained samples from light. Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (cat. 00-8222) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (cat. 00-5333) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically. Excitation: 488 nm; Emission: 710 nm; Laser: Blue Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered. Binds with high affinity to the poliovirus receptor (PVR) which causes increased secretion of IL10 and decreased secretion of IL12B and suppresses T cell activation by promoting the generation of mature immunoregulatory dendritic cells.
