Description: The monoclonal antibody OX104 recognizes human CD200 also known as OX2. CD200 is a member of the Ig superfamily with 2 Ig domains, a transmembrane and cytoplasmic domain. CD200 is expressed on resting and activated B cells, a subset of resting and activated T cells, keratinocytes, peripheral and central nerve cells, follicular dendritic cells and ovarian cells. The interaction with CD200R results in macrophage activation (IL-6 production), inhibition of mast cell degranulation along with reduced TNFalpha and IL-13 secretion and overall attenuation of the activation status of lymphocytes. A role has also been suggested in maternal tolerance as expression of CD200 is also present on the trophoblast.
Applications Reported: This OX104 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This OX104 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This may be used at less than or equal to 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
Our internal testing shows that NovaFluor Yellow 610 non-specifically stains B cells in SJL mice. Non-specific staining has not been observed in BALB/c or C57BL/6 mice. Other strains have not been tested. See the Antibody Testing Data for an example of this strain-dependent difference.
NovaFluor dyes are not compatible with DNA intercalating viability dyes. Do not use viability dyes such as propidium iodide, 7-actinomycin D (7-AAD) and DAPI. Invitrogen LIVE/DEAD Fixable Dead Cell stains are recommended for use with NovaFluor dyes.
Each NovaFluor conjugate or kit is shipped with CellBlox Blocking Buffer. Use this buffer whenever staining with NovaFluor conjugates, including single-color compensation controls using cells. Whenever possible, we recommend adding CellBlox Blocking Buffer to antibody cocktails/master mixes prior to combining with cells. Add 5 µL per sample (regardless of the number of NovaFluors in your panel) to use the antibody cocktail as intended. For single-color controls, use 5 µL of CellBlox Blocking Buffer per 100µL of cell sample containing 10^3 to 10^8 cells.
NovaFluor conjugates are based on Phiton™ technology utilizing novel nucleic acid dye structures that allow for engineered fluorescent signatures with consideration for spillover and spread impacts. Learn more

CD200 is a type-1 membrane glycoprotein that contains two immunoglobulin domains, and belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily. CD200 is a broadly distributed cell surface glycoprotein that interacts with a receptor on myeloid cells (CD200R) and is implicated in locally preventing macrophage activation. Distant, but recognizable, homologues of CD200 have been identified in many herpesviruses and poxviruses. Studies of the related genes in mouse and rat suggest that CD200 may regulate myeloid cell activity and delivers an inhibitory signal for the macrophage lineage in diverse tissues. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different isoforms of CD200 have been found. Diseases associated with CD200 dysfunction include Mantle Cell Lymphoma and Primary Hypertrophic Osteoarthropathy.
