FITC Rat Anti-Human IL-2
FITC Rat Anti-Human IL-2

Flow cytometric analysis of IL-2 expression on stimulated Rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) peripheral blood mononuclear cells. Rhesus PBMC were stimulated for 6 hours with PMA (Sigma, Cat. #P-8139) and calcium ionophore A23187 (Sigma, Cat. #C-9275) in the presence of 2 µM GolgiStop™ (Cat. No. 554724). The PBMC's were stained with PE Mouse Anti-Human CD3 (Cat. No. 555333/561808/561809), fixed, permeabilized, and then stained with FITC Rat Anti-Human IL-2 (0.25 µg; Cat. No. 554565/561055/559361). The quadrant markers for the bivariate dot plot was set based on the autofluorescence control, and verified with the blocking 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 with FITC under optimum conditions, and unreacted FITC 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. 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.
  4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  5. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  6. Species cross-reactivity detected in product development may not have been confirmed on every format and/or application.
  7. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.

MQ1-17H12

The MQ1-17H12 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the multifunctional cytokine, human Interleukin-2 (IL-2). IL-2 is produced by activated T cells and has multiple functions that can affect the growth, proliferation, differentiation and survival of many different target cell types including T cells, B cells, NK cells, monocytes and macrophages. The immunogen used to generate the MQ1-17H12 hybridoma was purified recombinant human IL-2 protein. The MQ1-17H12 antibody reportedly neutralizes the biological activity of human IL-2.

FITC
Fluorescein (FITC) 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 518-nm. FITC 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.
