Anti-Mouse Ly-6G BG Violet 500
The 1A8 monoclonal antibody specifically reacts with the 21-25 kDa glycophosphatidylinositol-anchored protein known as Ly-6G, expressed by the granulocytes from the bone marrow and periphery neutrophils. Ly-6G and Ly-6C form the Granulocyte Receptor-1 antigen (GR-1).
The binding of the 1A8 antibody to the Ly-6G can be blocked by another antibody, RB6-8C5, which also recognizes Ly-6C. While 1A8 is specific for only Ly-6G, RB6-8C5 also binds to Ly-6C.
BG Violet 500 conjugate is an alternative to the Pacific Orange and BD Horizon V500 dyes. It is excited by the violet (405 nm) laser, with a peak emission of 500nm.
