Flow cytometric analysis of untreated Jurkat cells using Mouse (MOPC-21) mAb IgG1 Isotype Control (Alexa Fluor® 647 Conjugate) (red) compared to Akt (5G3) Mouse mAb (Alexa Fluor® 647 Conjugate) #2944 (green).
Flow cytometric analysis of U0126-treated Jurkat cells using Mouse (MOPC-21) mAb IgG1 Isotype Control (Alexa Fluor® 647 Conjugate) (red) compared to Phospho-p44/42 MAPK (Erk1/2) (Thr202/Tyr204) (E10) Mouse mAb (Alexa Fluor® 647 Conjugate) #4375, U0126-treated (blue) or PMA-treated (green).
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorescent dye under optimal conditions and tested in-house for direct flow cytometric analysis of human cells.
Note: This control antibody must be diluted to the same concentration (not dilution) as the specific antibody in analysis. See Directions on Use.Directions for Use: Important! This control antibody must be diluted to the same concentration (not dilution) as the specific antibody used for analysis. Higher background fluorescence may result if excessive amounts of mouse IgG isotype control are used. Do not use this antibody at 1:50 dilution in the same way as recommended for other CST Alexa Fluor® conjugated antibodies.
Supplied in PBS (pH 7.2), less than 0.1% sodium azide and 2 mg/ml BSA. Store at 4°C. Do not aliquot the antibody. Protect from light. Do not freeze.
The antibody is not directed against any known antigen. It functions as an isotype control for mouse monoclonal antibodies. This antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimal conditions with an F/P ratio of 2-6.
Isotype control antibodies are used to estimate the nonspecific binding of target primary antibodies due to Fc receptor binding or other protein-protein interactions. An isotype control antibody should have the same immunoglobulin type and be used at the same concentration as the test antibody.
