Description: The G14D9 monoclonal antibody reacts with human Glycoprotein A Repetitions Predominant (GARP, also known as LRRC32 or Garpin). GARP is an approximately 80 kDa glycoprotein that is expressed on the cell surface. Using northern blot, RT-PCR or microarray analyses, the expression of GARP has been reported in placenta, lung, kidney, heart, ovary, liver, skeletal muscle, and pancreas. Protein expression has been observed on megakaryocytes, platelets and activated regulatory T (Treg) cells. The expression of GARP on the surface of activated Treg cells has been reported to be necessary for their suppressive function, possibly related to its role as a cell surface receptor for LAP/TGF beta.
Applications Reported: This G14D9 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This G14D9 antibody has been pre-diluted and tested by flow cytometric analysis of stimulated normal human peripheral blood cells. This may be used at 5 µL (0.5 µg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test.
Super Bright 600 is a tandem dye that can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 600 nm. We recommend using a 610/20 bandpass filter. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.
When using two or more Super Bright dye-conjugated antibodies in a staining panel, it is recommended to use Super Bright Complete Staining Buffer (Product # SB-4401) to minimize any non-specific polymer interactions. Please refer to the datasheet for Super Bright Staining Buffer for more information.
Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive to photo-induced oxidation. Please protect this vial and stained samples from light.
Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (Product # 00-8222) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (Product # 00-5333) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically.
Excitation: 405 nm; Emission: 600 nm; Laser: Violet Laser

GARP, also known as leucine rich repeat containing 32, is a type I membrane protein with twenty-two leucine-rich repeats and a short intracytoplasmic region. GARP was identified based on the analysis of gene expression profiling of Treg and Th cells following TCR stimulation. Since GARP is expressed in CD4+, CD25+, FoxP3+ cells (Tregs), it may be a candidate for cell surface marker for Treg cells.
