CD123 is a 70 kD α chain subunit of the IL-3 receptor (IL-3R α). It is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily that is expressed on hematopoietic progenitors, basophils, mast cells, and megakaryocytes. This transmembrane glycoprotein can bind IL-3 with low affinity but cannot transduce signals without association with additional protein partners. CD123 can complex with either the common β chain (CDw131) or the IL-3R β chain (AIC2A) to form high-affinity heterodimeric IL-3 receptors. CDw131 can complex with the α subunits of the mouse IL-3R, IL-5R and GM-CSFR to form high-affinity receptors, while the IL-3 R β subunit is specific for IL-3 but binds with low affinity. IL-3 binding to the receptor complex can induce proliferation and differentiation of hematopoietic cells. The 5B11 antibody does not block binding of IL-3 to the high affinity IL-3 receptor.Product Details

FC - Quality tested
- 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 million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
For most successful immunofluorescent staining results, it may be important to maximize signal over background by using a relatively bright fluorochrome-antibody conjugate (Cat. No. 106006) or by using a high sensitivity, three-layer staining technique (e.g., including a biotinylated antibody (Cat. No. 106004) or biotinylated anti-rat IgG second step (Cat. No. 405402), followed by SAv-PE (Cat. No. 405204)). To reduce non-specific binding to cells bearing Fc-receptors, pre-incubation of cells with anti-mouse CD16/CD32, clone 93 (Cat. No. 101301/101302), is recommended prior to immunofluorescent staining.
