    C57BL/6 mouse frozen spleen section was fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (PFA) for ten minutes at room temperature and blocked with 5% FBS plus 5% rat/mouse serum for 30 minutes at room temperature. Then the section was stained with 5 µg/mL anti-mouse Ly-6G (clone 1A8) Alexa Fluor® 647 (red), anti-mouse/human CD45R/B220 (clone RA3-6B2) Brilliant Violet 510™ (green) and CD8a (clone 53-6.7) Brilliant Violet 421™ (blue) overnight at 4°C. The image was captured with a 10X objective.

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, 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.

* Alexa Fluor® 647 has a maximum emission of 668 nm when it is excited at 633nm / 635nm.

Application Notes

While 1A8 recognizes only Ly-6G, clone RB6-8C5 recognizes both Ly-6G and Ly-6C. Clone RB6-8C5 binds with high affinity to mouse Ly-6G molecules and to a lower extent to Ly-6C15. Clone RB6-8C5 impairs the binding of anti-mouse Ly-6G clone 1A815. However, clone RB6-8C5 is able to stain in the presence of anti-mouse Ly-6C clone HK1.416.

Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: immunohistochemistry9 of frozen sections10 and paraffin-embedded sections11, and depletion4, 12-14. The Ultra-LEAF™ purified antibody (Endotoxin < 0.01 EU/µg, Azide-Free, 0.2 µm filtered) is recommended for in vivo studies or highly sensitive assays (Cat. No. 127632, 127649, 127650, 127661 and 127662).
