Purified Mouse anti-Mouse RORγt
Purified Mouse anti-Mouse RORγt

Analyses of RORγt Expression by Western bloting and Immunohistochemistry.

Left Panel: Western blot analyses of RORγt expression by mouse splenocytes and thymocytes. Cell lysates from untreated mouse splenocytes (Spl; Lanes 1,2) and thymocytes (Thy; Lanes 3,4) (20 μg total cellular protein/lane) were electrophoresed (SDS-PAGE) and transferred to membranes. They were then probed with Purified Anti-Actin antibody (Cat. No. 612656/612657; Lanes 1,3 at 1 µg of antibody/ml) or Purified Mouse Anti-Mouse RORγt antibody (Clone Q31-378; Cat. No. 562663; Lanes 2,4 at 1 µg/ml). Mouse RORγt is identified as a protein band of ~56 kDa in the thymocyte lysate whereas actin is detected as ~42 kDa bands in the splenocyte and thymocyte lysates.

Middle Panel: Immunohistochemical analysis of RORγt expressed in mouse thymocytes. Following antigen retrieval with BD Retrievagen A Buffer (Cat. no. 550524), the formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded sections were stained with either Purified Mouse IgG2a, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 550339; Left Image) or Purified Mouse Anti-RORγt antibody (Q31-378; Right Image). This was followed by staining with Biotin Rat Anti-Mouse IgG2a secondary antibody (Cat. No. 550332), Streptavidin HRP (Cat. No. 550946) and a DAB Substrate Kit (Cat. No. 550880) with Hematoxylin counterstaining. The RORγt staining is nuclear as shown in the figures. Original magnification: 20x.

Right Panel: Immunohistochemical analysis of RORγt expressed in mouse small intestine. Sections of mouse small intestine were similarly stained for immunohistochemical analysis. Original magnification: 20x.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  3. Sodium azide is a reversible inhibitor of oxidative metabolism; therefore, antibody preparations containing this preservative agent must not be used in cell cultures nor injected into animals. Sodium azide may be removed by washing stained cells or plate-bound antibody or dialyzing soluble antibody in sodium azide-free buffer. Since endotoxin may also affect the results of functional studies, we recommend the NA/LE (No Azide/Low Endotoxin) antibody format, if available, for in vitro and in vivo use.
  4. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
  5. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.

Q31-378

The Q31-378 monoclonal antibody recognizes mouse RORgamma t  (RORγt), an isoform of RORgamma (RORγ). RORγt is a DNA-binding transcription factor that belongs to the ROR/RZR orphan nuclear receptor family. RORγt is expressed exclusively by lymphoid cells including CD4+CD8+ thymocytes, peripheral CD4+ Th17 and CD8+ Tc17 cells, NKT cells and innate lymphoid cells such as lymphoid tissue inducer (LTi) cells. RORγt plays essential roles in thymopoiesis, T cell homeostasis, differentiation of effector T lymphocytes and the development of secondary lymphoid tissues including lymph nodes and Peyer's patches.

Purified
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
