Description: The H1.2F3 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD69, also known as very early activation antigen (VEA). CD69 is approximately 35 kDa and is expressed on the surface as a disulfide-linked dimer. While a small subset of lymphocytes in the thymus, spleen and lymph nodes express this antigen, activation of both T and B cells rapidly upregulates the surface expression of CD69, suggesting a role for CD69 in lymphocyte development and activation.
Applications Reported: This H1.2F3 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This H1.2F3 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of stimulated mouse splenocytes. This may be used at less than or equal to 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. 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 Complete Staining Buffer (Product # SB-4401) 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 # 00-8222) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (Product # 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

CD69 (AIM, Active Inducer Molecule) is a gp28/34 disulfide bonded homodimer with a molecular weight of 60 kDa under non-reducing conditions. CD69 contains one or two N linked oligosacaride and the molecule is present on activated platelets. In normal peripheral blood a variable percentage of cells express the CD69 antigen, and it is involved in lymphocyte signal transduction. Expression CD69 is induced upon activation of T lymphocytes, and may play a role in proliferation. Furthermore, the protein may act to transmit signals in natural killer cells and platelets. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants of CD69. Diseases associated with CD69 dysfunction include coccidiodomycosis and asthma.
