Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse anti-Mouse IL-17F
Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse anti-Mouse IL-17F

Flow cytometric analysis of mouse IL-17F expression in resting or stimulated mouse EL4 thymoma cells or in polarized mouse Th17 cells. Mouse EL4 thymoma cells were either unstimulated or stimulated with Phorbol 12-Myristate 13-Acetate (PMA; Sigma P-8139) and Ionomycin (Sigma; I-0634) in the presence of BD GolgiStop™ Protein Transport Inhibitor (Cat. No. 554724) for 5 hours. Th17 cells were generated from Th17-polarizing mouse spleen cell cultures and were stimulated with PMA and Ionomycin with BD GolgiStop™ Protein Transport Inhibitor. The EL4 and Th17 cells were fixed and permeabilized using the BD Cytofix/Cytoperm™ Fixation/Permeabilization Solution Kit (Cat. No. 554714). The unstimulated (Left Panel) and stimulated (Middle Panel) EL4 cells were stained with Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse anti-Mouse IL-17F (Cat. No. 561631). To validate O79-289 antibody use for staining IL-17F in Th17 cells generated from primary mouse T cells, the fixed and permeabilized Th17-polarized cells were stained with purified O79-289 Mouse Anti-Mouse IL-17F antibody followed by PE Goat Anti-Mouse Ig (Cat. No. 550589) and with Alexa Fluor® 488 Rat Anti-Mouse IL-17A antibody (Cat. No. 560220) (Right Panel). Two-color flow cytometric dot plots showing the correlated expression patterns of IL-17F versus cellular autofluorescence (measured in the FL2 channel) for EL4 cells or versus IL-17A for Th17 cells were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact cells. Flow cytometry was performed using a BD™ LSR II Flow Cytometry System.

Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 488 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 488 was removed. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  3. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  4. Alexa Fluor® 488 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC).

O79-289

The O79-289 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the inflammatory cytokine protein, Interleukin-17 (IL-17F). IL-17F is a member of the IL-17 family of cytokines. Among IL-17 family members, IL-17F has the highest amino acid sequence homology to IL-17A. IL-17F is produced by activated CD4+ T helper (Th17) cells, CD8+ T (Tc17) cells and γδ T cells. IL-17F can be secreted as homodimers or as heterodimers with IL-17A. IL-17F and IL-17A have overlapping functions such as inducing epithelial cells and fibroblasts to produce proinflammatory cytokines and chemokines including IL-6, GM-CSF, CXCL1, CCL2, and CCL7. These factors attract and activate neutrophils and other cell types that mediate protective responses against pathogenic microbes or pathologic allergic or autoimmune diseases. IL-17 gene knockout studies have shown that IL-17F and IL-17A have independent functions as well. IL-17F and IL-17A exert their biological function by binding to and signaling through IL-17 receptors comprised of the transmembrane receptor subunits, IL-17RA (CD217) and IL-17RC.

Alexa Fluor™ 488
Alexa Fluor™ 488 Dye 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 517-nm. Alexa Fluor™ 488 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.
