Description: This MA57YW monoclonal antibody recognizes human B7-H7 on live and paraformaldehyde-fixed cells.
Applications Reported: This MA57YW antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. This MA57YW monoclonal antibody recognizes human B7-H7 on live and paraformaldehyde-fixed cells.
Applications Tested: This MA57YW antibody has been pre-diluted and tested by flow cytometric analysis the HDLM-2 cell line. 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.
PE-eFluor 610 can be excited with laser lines from 488-561 nm and emits at 607 nm. We recommend using a 610/20 band pass filter (equivalent to PE-Texas Red). 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 (Product # 00-8222-49) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (Product # 00-5333-57) 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: 488-561 nm; Emission: 607 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser
B7-H7 (also known as HHLA2) is a membrane protein with three Ig-like domains (IgV-IgC-IgV), whereas other members of the B7 family generally have only two Ig domains (IgV-IgC). B7-H7 is somewhat more closely related to B7-H3 and B7-H4 and shares 10% to 18% amino acid identity and 23% to 33% similarity to B7 family members. B7-H7 protein is widely expressed in epithelium cells of the gallbladder, breast, kidney, colon, small intestines and placenta. In the immune system, HHLA2 protein is not constitutively expressed on human monocytes/macrophages. B7-H7 is widely expressed in cancers, especially in triple negative breast cancer.
