Description: The MU5UBEE monoclonal antibody reacts with human and non-human primate CD185. CD185, which is also known as C-X-C chemokine receptor 5 (CXCR5) and Burkitt lymphoma receptor 1 (BLR1), is a seven transmembrane G protein-coupled receptor originally identified in Burkitt′s lymphoma. In peripheral blood, CD185 is expressed on B cells, CD4+ T cells (but not Th1 or Th2 cells), as well as on a subpopulation of memory (CD45RO+) T cells. Circulating CD185+ T cells are in a resting state and migrate to the lymph nodes due to expression of CCR7 and CD62L. In tonsil, CD185 is expressed on nearly all CD4+ cells together with CD45RO and activation markers such as CD69 and ICOS. Tonsillar CD185+ cells have been shown to induce antibody production when co-cultured with B cells, thus supporting their role in providing help to B cells. Furthermore, this chemokine receptor plays a critical role in lymphocyte trafficking, in particular T cell migration into the B cell follicles of germinal centers in response to CXCL13, making CD185 an established marker of follicular helper T cells. Applications Reported: This MU5UBEE antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This MU5UBEE antibody has been pre-diluted and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This may be used at 5 μL (0.5 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 600 is a tandem dye that can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 600 nm. We recommend using a 610/20 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: 600 nm; Laser: Violet Laser CXCR5 (C-X-Chemokine Receptor Type 5, CD185) also known as Burkitt lymphoma receptor 1 (BLR1) belongs to the CXC chemokine receptor family. CXCR5 is a G protein-coupled seven transmembrane receptor for chemokine BLC. CXCR5 gene is specifically expressed in Burkitt′s lymphoma and lymphatic tissues, such as follicles in lymph nodes, as well as in spleen. Studies of CXCR5 suggest that it plays an essential role in B cell migration. CXCR5 expression has been reported in human blood and salivary gland and in animal lymphatic organs, blood, bone marrow, brain, liver, lymph node, skin, spleen, stomach, and tonsil. ESTs (expressed sequence tags) have been isolated from human brain, germ cell, lung, lymph, and pancreas. G-protein Coupled Receptors (GPCRs) comprise one of the largest families of signaling molecules with more than a thousand members currently predicted to exist. All GPCRs share a structural motif consisting of seven membrane-spanning helices, and exist in both active and inactive forms. An array of activating ligands participate in the conformation of GPCRs which leads to signaling via G-proteins and downstream effectors. Research studies have also shown the vast series of reactions which participate in the negative regulation of GPCRs. This "turn-off" activity in GPCRs have tremendous implications for the physiological action of the cell, and continues to drive pharmacological research for new drug candidates. Two blockbuster drugs which have been developed as GPCR-targeted pharmaceuticals are Zyprexa (Eli Lilly) and Claritin (Schering-Plough) which are used in mental health and allergy applications, respectively.
