PE Armenian Hamster anti-Mouse IL-9
PE Armenian Hamster anti-Mouse IL-9

Multicolor flow cytometric analysis of IL-9 expression by unstimulated and activated mouse spleen cells. Mouse spleen cells were either unstimulated (Left Panel) or stimulated in a tissue culture plate coated with Anti-Mouse CD3e and soluble Anti-Mouse CD28 antibodies along with Recombinant Mouse IL-2, IL-4, and TGF-β proteins and Anti-Mouse IFN-γ antibody for 4 days. On day 4 the cells were harvested and restimulated with Phorbol 12-Myristate 13-Acetate (PMA; Sigma P-8139) plus Ionomycin (Sigma; I-0634) in the presence of BD GolgiStop™ Protein Transport Inhibitor for 5 hours (Right Panel). The cells were then fixed and permeabilized using a BD Cytofix/Cytoperm™ Fixation/Permeabilization Solution Kit followed by staining with PE Armenian Hamster anti-Mouse IL-9 (Cat. No. 561463) and Alexa Fluor® 647 Rat Anti-Mouse CD4 (Cat. No. 557681). Two-color flow cytometric dot plots showing the correlated expression patterns of CD4 versus IL-9 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. Other compatible fixation and permeabilization treatments are listed in the Suggested Companion Products.

Preparation And Storage

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

Recommended Assay Procedures

This fluorescent antibody is suitable for intracellular staining of mouse leukocytes using BD Cytofix/Cytoperm™ Reagents or BD Phosflow™ Fix Buffer I and Perm/Wash Buffer I (please see Suggested Companion Products).

  

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.

D9302C12

The D9302C12 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the multifunctional mouse cytokine, Interleukin-9 (IL-9). IL-9 is a 126 amino acid-long glycoprotein that is produced by various subsets of activated CD4+ T cells. IL-9 acts on target cells by binding to and signaling through the heterodimeric IL-9 receptor (IL-9R) complex that is comprised of transmembrane IL-9 receptor alpha (IL-9Rα) and common gamma chain (γc) subunits. IL-9 can promote the survival, growth, proliferation and/or differentiation of various cell types including thymocytes, T cells, B cells, mast cells, and hematopoietic progenitor cells. IL-9 can augment IL-4-induced IgE and IgG1 production from lipopolysaccharide-primed mouse B cells and induce granzyme and high-affinity IgE receptor gene expression by mouse T helper cell clones and mast cell lines. IL-9 plays an important role in vivo in helminth elimination. The D9302C12 antibody neutralizes mouse IL-9 bioactivity.

PE
R-Phycoerythrin (PE), is part of the BD family of Phycobiliprotein dyes. This fluorochrome is a multimeric fluorescent phycobiliprotein with excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 496 nm and 566 nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 576 nm. PE is designed to be excited by the Blue (488 nm), Green (532 nm) and Yellow-Green (561 nm) lasers and detected using an optical filter centered near 575 nm (e.g., a 575/26-nm bandpass filter). As PE is excited by multiple lasers, this can result in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover on instruments with various combinations of Blue, Green, and Yellow-Green lasers. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
