Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse anti-LAT (pY171)
Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse anti-LAT (pY171)

Analysis of LAT (pY171) in human peripheral blood lymphocytes.  Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells were either stimulated by cross-linking of CD3 and CD28 with NA/LE Mouse anti-Human CD3 mAb UCHT1 (Cat. No. 555329) and NA/LE Mouse anti-Human CD28 mAb CD28.2 (Cat. No. 555725) on ice for 15 minutes followed by Purified Goat anti-Mouse Ig (Cat. No. 553998) on ice for 15 minutes, and then allowed to undergo phosphorylation at 37°C for 1-2 minutes (shaded histogram) or unstimulated (open histogram).  The cells were fixed (BD Cytofix™ buffer, Cat. No. 554655) for 10 minutes at 37°C, permeabilized (BD Phosflow™ Perm Buffer III, Cat. No. 558050) on ice for 30 minutes, blocked with normal mouse immunoglobulin, and then stained with Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse anti-LAT (pY171, Cat. No. 558519) and PE Mouse anti-human CD3 mAb UCHT1 (Cat. No. 555333).  The figure displays the upregulated phosphorylation of LAT in activated CD3-positive T lymphocytes.  Flow cytometry was performed on a BD FACSCalibur™ flow cytometry 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 to Alexa Fluor® 488 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 488 was removed.

Product Notices

  1. This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
  2. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  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.
  4. 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.
  5. Alexa Fluor® 488 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC).

I58-1169

Engagement of the T cell receptor (TCR) induces signal transduction pathways that enhance gene transcription and cellular proliferation and differentiation.  TCR ligation results in the recruitment and activation of multiple protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs), including lck, fyn, and ZAP70.  Adaptor proteins, such as Grb2 and SLP-76, relay the signal to downstream effector molecules.  LAT (linker for activation of T cells) is a substrate of the activated ZAP70 and functions to bridge the activated TCR and its associated PTKs with tyrosine kinase substrates.  LAT is expressed as 36- and 38-kDa forms that result from post-translational modification, and as a 42-kDa form that results from alternative splicing.  LAT is an integral membrane protein that is phosphorylated at five tyrosine sites upon TCR ligation.  Following phosphorylation, LAT binds a number of important signaling molecules, including Grb2, Vav, PLCγ1, and the p85 subunit of PI3K.  Multiple studies have shown that functional LAT is required for T lymphocyte activation and thymocyte development.

The I58-1169 monoclonal antibody recognizes the phosphorylated tyrosine 171 (pY171) of LAT, which is one of the phosphotyrosine sites required for binding phosphoinositide 3-kinase, Grb2, and Gads.

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.
