Alexa Fluor® 488 Rat anti-Mouse IL-17A
Alexa Fluor® 488 Rat anti-Mouse IL-17A

Characterization of IL-17A-producing cells within a stimulated mouse EL4 thymoma cell population. EL4 cells were stimulated  (left and middle panels) or unstimulated (right panel) with PMA (50 ng/ml final concentration; Sigma, Cat. No.P-8139) and Ionomycin (1000 ng/ml final concentration; Sigma, Cat. No.I-0634) in the presence of BD GolgiStop™ (Cat. No. 554724). The cells were fixed, permeabilized and subsequently stained with Alexa 488 conjugated anti-mouse IL-17A (clone TC11-18H10, Cat. No. 560220/560221) (middle and right panels) or Alexa 488 rat IgG1 isotype control (clone R3-34, Cat. no. 557720) (left panel) using Pharmingen's I/C staining protocol. The quadrant markers for the bivariate dot plots were set based on the autofluorescence control, and verified with the unstimulated stained (right panel) and non-specific antibody  (left panel) controls.

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 Alexa Fluor® 488 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 488 was removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

For flow cytometry of cell suspensions from peripheral lymphoid tissues, it is recommended that the cells be pre-incubated with Mouse BD Fc Block™ purified anti-mouse CD16/CD32 mAb 2.4G2 (Cat. No.553141/553142).

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Alexa Fluor® 488 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC).
  3. The Alexa Fluor®, Pacific Blue™, and Cascade Blue® dye antibody conjugates in this product are sold under license from Molecular Probes, Inc. for research use only, excluding use in combination with microarrays, or as analyte specific reagents. The Alexa Fluor® dyes (except for Alexa Fluor® 430), Pacific Blue™ dye, and Cascade Blue® dye are covered by pending and issued patents.
  4. 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.

TC11-18H10

The TC11-18H10 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to recombinant and natural mouse IL-17A proteins. IL-17A, also known as CTLA-8, is a T cell-derived cytokine that promotes inflammatory responses.  Mouse IL-17A is a proinflammatory cytokine that can induce the release of IL-6 by mouse stromal cells. It has been shown to support the growth of hemopoietic progenitors in vitro; it can also stimulate granulopoiesis in vivo. The TC11-18H10 antibody has been reported to neutralize IL-17A activity.  Recent studies have shown that IL-17A is produced by a unique subset of Th17 cells that develop along a pathway distinct from the Th1- and Th2- cell differentiation pathways. The mouse IL-17A cDNA was isolated from a cDNA library generated from TCRαβ+CD4-CD8- thymocytes.

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.
