Description: The 3D12 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CCR7, also known as EBI-1 and CD197. CCR7 is a member of the G-protein-coupled chemokine receptor family with seven membrane-spanning domains and functions as a receptor for 6Ckine/SLC (secondary lymphoid-tissue chemokine), CCL19 and CCL21. CCR7 has been shown to be internalized via clathrin-coated pits and the majority recycled back to the plasma membrane. CCR7 is expressed on T cells and can be used to distinguish populations of naive from central and effector memory T cells. CCR7 has been shown to play a role in migration of memory T cells to inflamed tissue. Expression of CCR7 is also found on DC′s. During DC maturation CCR7 expression increases and is thought to be involved in a variety of functions: chemotaxis to the lymph node, cellular architecture, rate of endocytosis, survival and maturation. Expression of CCR7 on the cell surface can be down regulated upon ligand binding. Applications Reported: This 3D12 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This 3D12 antibody has been pre-diluted and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This may be used at 5 μL (1 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.Super Bright 645 is a tandem dye that can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 645 nm. We recommend using a 660/20 bandpass filter. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome. When using two or more Super Bright dye-conjugated antibodies in a staining panel, it is recommended to use Super Bright Staining Buffer (Product No. SB-4400) to minimize any non-specific polymer interactions. Please refer to the datasheet for Super Bright Staining Buffer for more information. 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 (Product No. 00-8222) (100 μL of cell sample + 100 μL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (Product No. 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: 405 nm; Emission: 645 nm; Laser: Violet Laser SIGLEC5 is a putative adhesion molecule that mediates sialic-acid dependent binding to cells. This protein binds equally to alpha2,3-linked and alpha2,6-linked sialic acid. The sialic acid recognition site may be masked by cis interactions with sialic acids on the same cell surface. This molecule is expressed by monocytic/myeloid lineage cells. SIGLEC5 is found at high levels in peripheral blood leukocytes, spleen, bone marrow and at lower levels in lymph node, lung, appendix, placenta, pancreas and thymus. It is expressed by monocytes and neutrophils but absent from leukemic cell lines representing early stages of myelomonocytic differenciation.
