Flow cytometric analysis of live mouse bone marrow derived dendritic cells using CD11c (N418) Hamster mAb (FITC Conjugate) and co-stained with MHC Class II (I-A/I-E) (M5/114.15.2) Rat mAb (APC Conjugate) #64776 (right), compared to concentration-matched Armenian Hamster Isotype Control (FITC Conjugate) (left).
|Source/Isotype||Hamster (Armenian) IgG|
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to FITC and tested in-house for direct flow cytometric analysis in mouse cells.
For optimal flow cytometry results, we recommend 0.25 μg of antibody per test.
Supplied in 10 mM NaH2PO4, 150 mM NaCl, 0.09% NaN3, 0.1% gelatin, pH 7.2. Do not aliquot the antibody. Protect from light. Do not freeze.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water.
NOTE: When including fluorescent cellular dyes in your experiment (including viability dyes, DNA dyes, etc.), please refer to the dye product page for the recommended protocol. Visit www.cellsignal.com for a full listing of cellular dyes validated for use in flow cytometry.
NOTE: Count cells using a hemocytometer or alternative method.
NOTE: If using whole blood, lyse red blood cells and wash by centrifugation prior to Immunostaining.
NOTE: Optimal centrifugation conditions will vary depending upon cell type and reagent volume. Generally, 150-300g for 1-5 minutes will be sufficient to pellet the cells.

CD11c (N418) Hamster mAb (FITC Conjugate) recognizes endogenous levels of total CD11c protein. This antibody detects an epitope within the extracellular domain.
This monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant via affinity chromatography. The purified antibody was conjugated under optimal conditions, with unreacted dye removed from the preparation.
CD11c (integrin αX, ITGAX) is a transmembrane glycoprotein that forms an α/β heterodimer with CD18 (integrin β2), which interacts with a variety of extracellular matrix molecules and cell surface proteins (1). CD11c is primarily used as a dendritic cell marker. Dendritic cells can be classified into two major types: CD11c+ conventional dendritic cells that specialize in antigen presentation, and CD11c- plasmacytoid dendritic cells that specialize in type I interferon production (2, 3). CD11c expression has also been observed on activated NK cells, subsets of B cells, monocytes, granulocytes, and some B cell malignancies including hairy cell leukemia (4-7).
The N418 antibody is widely used as a marker for CD11c expression on the cell types mentioned above (8,9).
