Safety Data Sheet (SDS) Biotin Anti-mouse Ly-6G/Ly-6C Gr-1 Antibody     Product Data Sheet (PDF)    
Biotin Anti-mouse Ly-6G/Ly-6C (Gr-1) Antibody
1142015 50 µg $45.00       
1142020 500 µg $210.00       
Clone: RB6-8C5
Isotype: Rat IgG2b, κ
Reactivity: Mouse
Immunogen: Raised against granulocytes of mouse origin
Formulation: Phosphate-buffered solution, pH 7.2, containing 0.09% sodium azide.
Preparation: The antibody was purified by affinity chromatography, and conjugated with biotin under optimal conditions. The solution is free of unconjugated biotin.
Concentration: 0.5 mg/ml
Storage & Handling: The Ly-6G/Ly-6C antibody solution should be stored undiluted between 2°C and 8°C. Do not freeze.
Application:

FC - Quality tested
IP, IHC, WB - Reported in the literature

Application Notes:

Clone RB6-8C5 binds with high affinity to mouse Ly-6G molecules and to a lower extent to Ly-6C19. Clone RB6-8C5 impairs the binding of anti-mouse Ly-6G clone 1A819. However, clone RB6-8C5 is able to stain in the presence of anti-mouse Ly-6C clone HK1.420.

The RB6-8C5 antibody has been used to identify peripheral blood neutrophils and deplete granulocytes in vivo. Additional reported applications (for relevant formats of this clone) include: in vitro complement-mediated cytotoxicity2, in vivo depletion3-5,9, immunoprecipitation1, immunohistochemical staining6 (including paraffin-embedded sections9,16, acetone-fixed frozen sections11 and zinc-fixed sections15), and Western blotting7. RB6-8C5 is not suitable for depletion of hepatic myeloid derived suppressor cells (MDSCs)20.

Special Note:

Recommended Usage:

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. The suggested use of this reagent is ≤ 0.25 µg per 106 cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

C57BL/6 mouse bone marrow stained

C57BL/6 mouse bone marrow stained with biotinylated Ly-6G/Ly-6C (clone RB6-8C5, filled histogram) or biotinylated Rat IgG2b, κ isotype control (open histogram), followed by streptavidin PE.



Description:

Gr-1 is a 21-25 kD protein also known as Ly-6G/Ly-6C. This myeloid differentiation antigen is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-linked protein expressed on granulocytes and macrophages. In bone marrow, the expression levels of Gr-1 directly correlate with granulocyte differentiation and maturation; Gr-1 is also transiently expressed on bone marrow cells in the monocyte lineage. Immature Myeloid Gr-1+ cells play a role in the development of antitumor immunity.

Other Names: Gr-1
Structure: 21-25 kD
Distribution: Granulocytes, monocytes
