BV786 Mouse Anti-Mouse RORγt

Multicolor flow cytometric analysis of RORγt expression in mouse thymocytes. BALB/c mouse thymocytes were stained with APC Rat Anti-Mouse CD4 (Cat. No. 553051/561091) and FITC Rat Anti-Mouse CD8a (Cat. No. 553031/553030/561966) antibodies, and fixed and permeabilized using the BD Pharmingen™ Transcription Factor Buffer Set (Cat. No. 562574/562725). The fixed and permeabilized cells were then stained with BD Horizon™ BV786 Mouse Anti-Mouse RORγt antibody (Cat. No. 564723). The overlapping histograms showing RORγt expression were derived from CD4+CD8- single-positive (dashed line histogram) or CD4+CD8+ double-positive (solid line histogram) gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact thymocytes. Flow cytometric analysis was performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ Cell Analyzer 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™ BV786 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon™ BV786 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 (including BD Optibuild Brilliant reagents) 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) or the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer Plus (Cat. No. 566385).

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.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV786 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 with an Ex Max of 405-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 786-nm.  BD Horizon BV786 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in a filter used to detect Cy™7-like dyes (eg, 780/60-nm filter).

BV786
The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 786 (BV786) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a BV421 donor with an Ex Max of 407-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 786-nm.  BV786, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the violet laser and detected using a filter, centered near 785 nm (e.g. 780/60 nm bandpass filter).  Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and filters) are appropriate for this dye.
