Description: This BB7.1 monoclonal antibody recognizes the human major histocompatibility complex MHC class I molecule HLA-B7, which is a member of the HLA-B family. MHC class I exists as a heterodimer composed of a specific alpha chain associated with a beta 2-microglobulin. MHC class I molecules are expressed on all nucleated cells.
Applications Reported: This BB7.1 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This BB7.1 antibody has been pre-diluted and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. 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.
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.

HLA-B7 is one of the polymorphic proteins of human MHC Class I found on all nucleated cells. This surface protein is a heterodimer consisting of the specific transmembrane HLA-B chain paired with Beta-2 microglobulin. Classical MHC Class I molecules play a central role in adaptive immunity by presenting to T cells antigenic peptides derived either from the cell itself (classical presentation) or extracellular antigens (cross-presentation). The ligands of MHC class I include T cell receptor (TCR) and a costimulatory molecule CD8. Hundreds of HLA-B alleles have been described. Typing for these polymorphisms is routinely done for transplantation.
