Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse Anti-Cardiac Troponin T
Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse Anti-Cardiac Troponin T

Flow cytometric analysis of Cardiac Troponin T in mouse cardiomyocytes differentiated in vitro. The C2C12 mouse myoblast cell line (ATCC CRL-1772) was cultured for 5 days in low-serum conditions for induction of cell differentiation, fixed with BD Cytofix™ Fixation Buffer (Cat. No. 554655), and permeabilized with BD Perm/Wash™ Buffer (Cat. No. 554723). The cells were stained with either Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 557732, dashed line) or Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse Anti-Cardiac Troponin T (solid line). The fluorescence histograms were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact cells. Flow cytometry was performed on a BD LSR™ II flow cytometer system.

Image analysis of Cardiac Troponin T in mouse heart (view of left atrium). Mouse heart cryosections (5 µm) were fixed with BD Cytofix™ Fixation Buffer (Cat. No. 554655), blocked with 5% goat serum and 1% BSA, permeabilized with 0.2% Triton™ X-100 diluted in PBS, and stained with Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse Anti-Cardiac Troponin T (pseudocolored red), BD Horizon™ BV480 Rat Anti-Mouse CD31 (Cat. No. 565629, pseudocolored green), and BD Pharmingen™ 7-AAD (Cat. No. 559925, pseudocolored blue). Slides were mounted with ProLong® Gold Antifade Mountant (Life Technologies), and the images and the images were captured on a standard epifluorescence microscope with a 20X objective.

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® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 was removed.

13-11

The 13-11 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes Troponin T type 2 (cardiac), encoded by the gene TNNT2. Troponin T is the tropomyosin-binding subunit of the troponin complex, which also encompasses troponin C and troponin I. This complex regulates muscle contraction in skeletal and cardiac muscle in response to alterations in calcium levels.  Troponin T type 2 is solely found in the heart, and genetic alterations in the TNNT2 gene are associated to a series of heart disorders in humans, including hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathy and left ventricular noncompaction. Cardiac Troponin T can be used as a marker for the identification of cardiomyocytes derived from pluripotent stem cells.

Alexa Fluor™ 647
Alexa Fluor™ 647 Dye is part of the BD red family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 653-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 669-nm. Alexa Fluor 647 is designed to be excited by the Red laser (627-640 nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520-nm (e.g., a 660/20 nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
