negative control for MRP1

I'm trying to analyse MRP1 expression in A549 cells. We are used to
calibrate the FACScan just with the autofluorescence of the cells, as
negative control. We not have a isotype control for this antibody (FITC
mouse anti-human MRP1). The problem is that the tube containing only cells
presents more fluorescence that the majority of cells labeled with the
antibody (archive attached). We see distinct subpopulations in FSC x FL1
dot plot, however as the autoflurescence presents more intensity, it rest
a few cells MRP1 positives. What can we do to explain and to solve this

Best regards to all,
