BUV737 Rat Anti-Human IL-2
BUV737 Rat Anti-Human IL-2
Two color flow cytometric analysis of IL-2 expression in activated human peripheral blood lymphocytes. Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells were stimulated for 5 hours with Phorbol 12-Myristate 13-Acetate (PMA, Sigma P-8139; 50 ng/ml) and Calcium Ionophore A23187 (Sigma C-9275; 1 μg/ml), in the presence of BD GolgiStop™ Protein Transport Inhibitor (containing Monensin) (Cat. No. 554724). The cells were harvested, washed with BD Pharmingen™ Stain Buffer (FBS) (Cat. No. 554656), and fixed and permeabilized with BD Cytofix/Cytoperm™ Fixation and Permeabilization Solution (554722).       The cells were then washed and stained in BD Perm/Wash™ Buffer (Cat. No. 554723) with APC Mouse Anti-Human CD3 antibody (Cat No. 555335/561810/561811) and either BD Horizon™ BUV737 Rat IgG2a, κ Isotype Control (Cat No. 564294; Left Panel) or BD Horizon BUV737 Rat Anti-Human IL-2 antibody (Cat No. 564446; Right Panel) using BD Biosciences Intracellular Cytokine Staining Protocol. The two-color flow cytometric contour plots showing correlated expression of IL-2 (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus CD3 were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact lymphocytes. Flow cytometric analysis 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 with BD Horizon BUV737 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon BUV737 were removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes are used in the same experiment.  Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation.  The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions.  More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794/566349).

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.

MQ1-17H12

The MQ1-17H12 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the multifunctional cytokine, human Interleukin-2 (IL-2). IL-2 is produced by activated T cells and has multiple functions that can affect the growth, proliferation, differentiation and survival of many different target cell types including T cells, B cells, NK cells, monocytes and macrophages. The immunogen used to generate the MQ1-17H12 hybridoma was purified recombinant human IL-2 protein. The MQ1-17H12 antibody reportedly neutralizes the biological activity of human IL-2.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BUV737 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BUV395 with an Ex Max of 348-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 737-nm. BD Horizon Brilliant BUV737 can be excited by the ultraviolet laser (355 nm) and detected with a 740/35 filter.  Due to the excitation of the acceptor dye by other laser lines, there may be significant spillover into channels detecting Alexa Fluor® 700-like dyes (e.g., 712/20-nm filter).

Due to spectral differences between labeled cells and beads, using BD™ CompBeads can result in incorrect spillover values when used with BD Horizon BUV737 reagents. Therefore, the use of BD CompBeads or BD CompBeads Plus to determine spillover values for these reagents is not recommended. Different BUV737 reagents (e.g., CD4 vs. CD45) can have slightly different fluorescence spillover therefore, it may also be necessary to use clone specific compensation controls when using these reagents.

BUV737
The BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet 737 (BUV737) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a BUV395 donor with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 350-nm and an acceptor dye with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 735-nm. BUV737, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the ultraviolet laser (355-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 740-nm (e.g., 740/35 bandpass filter). The acceptor dye can be excited by the Red (628–640nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
