FITC Mouse Anti-Human TNF
FITC Mouse Anti-Human TNF

Flow cytometric analysis of TNF expression in stimulated Rhesus macaque peripheral blood lymphocytes. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells were stimulated for 6 hours with Phorbol 12-Myristate 13-Acetate (Sigma P-8139; 50 ng/ml final concentration) and Ionomycin (Sigma I-0634; 1 μg/ml final concentration) in the presence of BD GolgiStop ™ Protein Transport Inhibitor (containing Monensin) (Cat. No. 554724). The cells were harvested, washed with BD Pharmingen™ Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 554656/554657), and fixed with BD Cytofix™ Fixation Buffer (Cat. No. 554655). The cells were then washed and stained in BD Perm/Wash™ Buffer (Cat. No. 554723) with PE Mouse Anti-Human CD3ε ( Cat. No. 556612) and FITC Anti-Human TNF antibody (Cat. No. 552889). Two-color flow cytometric dot plots showing the correlated expression of TNF versus CD3 were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact lymphocytes.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with FITC under optimum conditions, and unreacted FITC was removed.

Product Notices

  1. This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  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. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  6. Species cross-reactivity detected in product development may not have been confirmed on every format and/or application.
  7. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.

MAb11

The MAb11 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to human tumor necrosis factor (TNF, also known as TNF-α) protein. TNF is an efficient juxtacrine, paracrine and endocrine mediator of inflammatory and immune functions. It regulates the growth and differentiation of a variety of cell types. TNF is cytotoxic for transformed cells when in conjunction with IFN-γ. It is secreted by activated monocytes/macrophages and other cells such as B cells, T cells and fibroblasts. The immunogen used to generate the MAb11 hybridoma was recombinant human TNF. The MAb11 antibody has been reported to crossreact with Rhesus Macaque TNF.

FITC
Fluorescein (FITC) is part of the BD blue family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 494-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 518-nm. FITC is designed to be excited by the Blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520 nm (e.g., a 530/30-nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
