EXBIO Antibodies Product Data Sheet

1A-689-T100

Monoclonal Antibody to CD23
Allophycocyanin (APC) conjugated (100 tests)

Clone: EBVCS-5
Isotype: Mouse IgG1
Specificity: The mouse monoclonal antibody EBVCS-5 recognizes an epitope located in the stalk region of human low affinity IgE receptor (CD23) between the 37 and 25 kDa cleavage sites.
Regulatory Status: RUO
Immunogen: EBV-transformed human cells
Species Reactivity: Human
Preparation: The purified antibody is conjugated with cross-linked Allophycocyanin (APC) under optimum conditions. The conjugate is purified by size-exclusion chromatography and adjusted for direct use. No reconstitution is necessary.
Storage Buffer: The reagent is provided in stabilizing phosphate buffered saline (PBS) solution containing 15mM sodium azide.
Storage / Stability: Store in the dark at 2-8°C. Do not freeze. Avoid prolonged exposure to light. Do not use after expiration date stamped on vial label.
Usage: The reagent is designed for Flow Cytometry analysis of human blood cells using 10 μl reagent / 100 μl of whole blood or 106 cells in a suspension.
The content of a vial (1 ml) is sufficient for 100 tests.
Expiration: See vial label
Lot Number: See vial label
Background: CD23 (Fc epsilon RII), the low affinity IgE receptor, is a 45 kDa type II membrane glycoprotein expressed more or less on eosinophils, follicular dendritic cells, Langerhans cells, mature B cells (mainly upon activation), EBV-transformed lymphoblasts, monocytes, and subpopulation of platelets. A soluble form of 37 kDa and other its fragments were also described. CD23 mediates IgE-dependent cytotoxicity by eosinophils and macrophages, and downregulates IgE secretion in response to high levels of IgE, involving release of pro-inflammatory cytokines.
