Description: This FLEG monoclonal antibody recognizes human CD162, which is also known as P-selectin glyocoprotein ligand-1 (PSGL-1). This 120-kDa protein exists as a homodimer on the surface of monocytes, neutrophils, granulocytes, peripheral T cells, some B cells, and a subset of CD34+ hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs) in the bone marrow. CD162 binds CD62P (P-selectin), CD62E (E-selectin), and CD62L (L-selectin) to mediate leukocyte interactions with each other as well as with activated platelets and endothelium. Thus, CD162 plays a critical role in leukocyte adhesion and rolling. Furthermore, the binding of CD162 to P-selectin on HPCs has been demonstrated to inhibit hematopoiesis. Studies have also demonstrated CD162 as the receptor for enterovirus 71.
Applications Reported: This FLEG antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This FLEG antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.06 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 can be used in place of PE-Cy5, PE-Cy5.5 or PerCP-Cy5.5. PerCP-eFluor® 710 emits at 710 nm and is excited with the blue laser (488 nm). Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome. For a filter configuration, we recommend using the 685 LP dichroic mirror and 710/40 band pass filter, however the 695/40 band pass filter is an acceptable alternative.
Our testing indicates that PerCP-eFluor® 710 conjugated antibodies are stable when stained samples are exposed to freshly prepared 2% formaldehyde overnight at 4°C, but please evaluate for alternative fixation protocols.
Excitation: 488 nm; Emission: 710 nm; Laser: Blue Laser.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
CD162 (PSGL-1) is a 120 kDa homodimer protein found on the surface of leukocytes and platelets. CD162 is known to bind CD62P (P-selectin), CD62L (L-selectin), and to a lower degree CD62E (E-selectin). These interactions play a critical role in leukocyte adhesion, rolling and extravasation. CD162 has been shown to be an important immune marker of T cell exhaustion in chronic viral infections and cancer.
