BV711 Rat Anti-Mouse IFN-γ
BV711 Rat Anti-Mouse IFN-γ

Two-color flow cytometric analysis of IFN-γ expression by stimulated mouse splenocytes. Mouse splenic leucocytes were stimulated for 5 hours with Phorbol 12-Myristate 13-Acetate (PMA; Sigma P-8139; 50 ng/ml) and Ionomycin (Sigma I-0634; 1 μg/ml) in the presence of BD GolgiStop™ Protein Transport Inhibitor (containing Monensin) (Cat. No. 554724). The cells were harvested, washed with BD Pharmingen™ Stain Buffer (FBS) (Cat. No. 554656), and fixed with BD Cytofix™ Fixation Buffer (Cat. No. 554655).

       The cells were then washed and stained in BD Perm/Wash™ Buffer (Cat. No. 554723) with PE Rat Anti-Mouse CD4 antibody (Cat. No. 553048/553049/561837) and either BD Horizon™ BV711 Rat IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 563283; Left Panel) or BD Horizon BV711 Rat Anti-Mouse IFN-γ antibody (Cat. No. 564336; Right Panel) by using the BD Biosciences Intracellular Cytokine Staining protocol. Two-color flow cytometric contour plots showing the correlated expression of IFN-γ (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus CD4 were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact stimulated leucocytes. Flow cytometric analysis was performed using a BD™ LSR II Flow 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 BD Horizon™ BV711 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon™ BV711 were removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes (including BD Optibuild Brilliant reagents) are used in the same experiment.  Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation.  The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions.  More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794/566349) or the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer Plus (Cat. No. 566385).

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.

XMG1.2

The XMG1.2 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to mouse interferon-γ (IFN-γ) protein. IFN-γ is a pleiotropic cytokine, of approximately 15-17 kDa, involved in the regulation of inflammatory and immune responses. It plays an important role in activation, growth, and differentiation of T and B lymphocytes, macrophages, NK cells and other non-hematopoietic cell types. IFN-γ production is associated with the Th1 cell differentiation. The purified form of this antibody has been reported to be a neutralizing antibody.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV711 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 with an Ex Max of 405-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 711-nm.  BD Horizon BV711 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in a filter used to detect Cy™5.5 / Alexa Fluor® 700-like dyes (eg, 712/20-nm filter).  Due to the excitation and emission characteristics of the acceptor dye, there may be moderate spillover into the Alexa Fluor® 700 and PerCP-Cy5.5 detectors.  However, the spillover can be corrected through compensation as with any other dye combination.

BV711
The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 711 (BV711) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a BV421 donor with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 407-nm and an acceptor dye with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 713-nm. BV711, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 710-nm (e.g., a 712/20-nm bandpass filter). The acceptor dye can be excited by the Red (628–640-nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
