Description: The TER-119 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse erythroid cells from early proerythroblast to mature erythrocyte stages. The TER-119 antigen is present in yolk sac, fetal and newborn liver, but is not expressed by cells carrying BFU-E and CFU-E activities. Several erythroleukemia cell lines tested so far are negative for expression of TER-119 antigen even after dimethylsulfoxide stimulation. Biochemical and molecular analysis of the TER-119 antigen indicate that this molecule is associated with the surface glycophorin A, but is not a typical glycophorin.
Applications Reported: This TER-119 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This TER-119 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes and bone marrow cells. This can 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.
Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive photo-induced oxidation. Please protect this vial and stained samples from light.
Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (cat. 00-8222) (100 µL cell sample + 100 µL IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (cat. 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.

TER-119 is a lineage marker for erythroid cells from early proerythroblast to mature erythrocyte stages in adult blood, spleen, and bone marrow. It is also present in yolk sac, and fetal and newborn liver. The TER-119 antigen is not expressed by cells of earlier erythroid development at BFU-e (blast-forming unit erythroid) stage or CFU-e (colony-forming unit erythroid) stage.
