APC Mouse Anti-Human IL-4
APC Mouse Anti-Human IL-4

Expression of IL-4 by stimulated Rhesus macaque peripheral blood lymphocytes. Rhesus macaque peripheral blood mononuclear cells were stimulated for 6 h with Phorbol 12-Myristate 13-Acetate (PMA; Sigma, Cat. No. P-8139) and calcium ionophore A23187 (Sigma, Cat. No. C-9275) in the presence of GolgiStop™ Protein Transport Inhibitor (Cat. No. 554724). The cells were fixed using BD Cytofix™ Fixation Buffer (Cat. No. 554655) and permeabilized with BD Perm/Wash™ Buffer (Cat. No. 554723). The cells were then stained with FITC Mouse Anti-Human CD3 (Cat No. 556611) and APC Mouse anti-Human IL-4 antibody (Cat No. 561233, Left Panel), or APC Mouse IgG1 κ Isotype Control (Cat No.554681, Right Panel) by using BD Biosciences Intracellular Cytokine Staining protocol. Two-color flow cytometric dot plots were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact lymphocytes. Flow cytometry was performed using a BD™ LSR II Flow Cytometer System.

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 to APC under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free APC were 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. 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.
  4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  5. This APC-conjugated reagent can be used in any flow cytometer equipped with a dye, HeNe, or red diode laser.
  6. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.

8D4-8

The 8D4-8 monoclonal antibody reacts with human interleukin-4 (IL-4). The immunogen used to raise the 8D4-8 hybridoma was recombinant human IL-4. The 8D4-8 antibody binds to an epitope that is different than the epitope recognized by the MP4-25D2 antibody (Cat. No. 554485).

Clone 8D4-8 displays an increased amount of non-specific binding to dead cells when compared to the clone MP4-25D2.  It is recommended to use a fixable viability dye in conjunction with this clone.

APC
Allophycocyanin (APC), is part of the BD family of phycobiliprotein dyes. This fluorochrome is a multimeric fluorescent phycobiliprotein with excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 651 nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 660 nm. APC is designed to be excited by the Red (627-640 nm) laser and detected using an optical filter centered near 660 nm (e.g., a 660/20 nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
