Description: The PC61.5 antibody reacts with mouse CD25, the 55 kDa interleukin-2 receptor alpha chain (IL-2R alpha). CD25 is expressed by early progenitors of the T and B lineage as well as by activated mature T and B lymphocytes. By itself, CD25 binds IL-2 only with low affinity. However, CD25 associates with CD122 (IL-2 receptor beta chain) and CD132 (common gamma chain) to form the high affinity IL-2 receptor. Binding of IL-2 to both the high and low affinity classes of IL-2 receptor is inhibited by the PC61.5 antibody. CD25 plays a role in lymphocyte differentiation and activation/proliferation. Applications Reported: This PC61.5 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This PC61.5 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes. This may be used at less than or equal to 0.25 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. 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 CD24 is a two-chain glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored glycoprotein expressed at multiple stages of B-cell development, beginning with the bone marrow pro-B-cell compartment and continuing through mature, surface Ig positive B-cells. Plasma cell expression is very low or negative. CD24 is also expressed on the majority of B-lineage acute lymphoblastic leukemias, B-cell CCLs and B-cell non-Hodgkin′s lymphomas. CD24 may play a role in regulation of B-cell proliferation and maturation, and control of autoimmunity.
