Flow cytometric analysis of live human peripheral blood mononuclear cells using CD161/KLRB1 (HP-3G10) Mouse mAb (FITC Conjugate) (solid line) compared to concentration-matched Mouse (MOPC-21) mAb IgG1 Isotype Control (FITC Conjugate) #97146 (dashed line).
|Isotype||Mouse IgG1, kappa|
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to FITC and tested in-house for direct flow cytometric analysis in human cells.
Supplied in 10 mM NaH2PO4, 150 mM NaCl, 0.09% NaN3, 0.1% gelatin, pH7.2. This product is stable for 6 months when stored at 4ºC. 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/flowdyes for a 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.

CD161/KLRB1 (HP-3G10) Mouse mAb (FITC Conjugate) recognizes endogenous levels of total CD161/KLRB1 protein. This antibody detects an epitope within the extracellular domain.Species Reactivity:
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.
CD161/KLRB1 (Killer cell lectin-like receptor subfamily B member 1, also known as CLEC5B and NKR-P1A) is a type II transmembrane protein that is expressed on the majority of Natural Killer (NK) cells, NK T cells, and some T lymphocytes (1). CD161/KLRB1 is also expressed on Th17 cells, promotes their generation, and modulates their function (2). Engagement with its ligand lectin-like transcript 1 (LLT1) inhibits NK cell function, while LLT1 and CD161/KLRB1 interaction in the presence of a TCR signal enhances IFN-gamma production by T cells (3,4). There are several different CD161 isoforms in rodents and some function as activating receptors as well (5,6).
This HP-3G10 antibody is used for flow cytometric analysis of CD161/KLRB1 expression on NK, NKT, and various subsets of T cells.
