PE Mouse anti-Mouse RORγt
PE Mouse anti-Mouse RORγt

Multicolor flow cytometric analysis of mouse RORγt expression in thymocytes and Th17 polarized cells. BALB/c mouse thymocytes (Panel 1) or Th17 polarized cells (Panels 2 and 3) were stained with BD Horizon™ Fixable Viability Stain 450 (Cat. No. 562247), fixed and permeabilized using the BD Pharmingen™ Transcription Factor Buffer Set (Cat. No. 562574) and then stained with either PE Mouse Anti-Mouse RORγt antibody (Cat. No. 562607) or PE Mouse IgG2a, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 554648). The thymocytes were counterstained with APC Rat Anti-Mouse CD4 (Cat. No. 553051) and PerCP-Cy™5.5 Rat Anti-Mouse CD8a (Cat. No. 551162) antibodies. The Th17-polarized cells were counterstained with APC-Cy™7 Hamster Anti-Mouse CD3e (Cat. No. 557596), Alexa Fluor® 700 Rat Anti-Mouse CD4 (Cat. No. 557956), FITC Rat Anti-Mouse IFN-γ (Cat. No. 554411) and PerCP-Cy™5.5 Rat Anti-Mouse IL-17A (Cat. No. 560666) antibodies.

Panel 1: The overlapping histograms show the levels of IgG2a Control (Left) and RORγt (Right) staining in CD4+CD8- single-positive (dotted line) or CD4+CD8+ double-positive (solid line) thymocytes.

Panel 2: The overlapping histograms show the levels of IgG2a Control (Left) and RORγt (Right) staining in Th17-polarized IL-17A-IFN-γ+ (dotted line) or IL-17A+IFN-γ- (solid line) cells.

Panel 3: Two-color contour plots show the correlated expression patterns of IgG2a Control (Left) or ROR γ t (Right) staining versus IL-17A in Th17-polarized CD3+CD4+ cells.

The flow cytometric data were derived from viable cell-discriminated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact single cells using a BD LSRFortessa™ 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 R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

Optimal staining occurs when using the PE Mouse anti-Mouse RORγt antibody with cells that have been fixed and permeabilized with the BD Pharmingen™ Transcription Factor Buffer Set (Cat. No. 562574). However, staining with this fluorescent antibody is also compatible when using target cells that have been fixed and permeabilized using BD Cytofix/Cytoperm™ Fixation/Permeablization Kit (Cat. No. 554714).

Product Notices

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

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.

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.
