BUV737 Mouse Anti-Bcl-6
BUV737 Mouse Anti-Bcl-6

Flow cytometric analysis of Bcl-6 expression in Ramos cells. Cells from the human Ramos (Burkitt's lymphoma, ATCC CRL-1596) cell line were fixed with BD Cytofix™ Fixation Buffer (Cat. No. 554655) and permeabilized with BD Phosflow™ Perm Buffer III (Cat. No. 558050) followed by intracellular staining with either BD Horizon™ BUV737 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 612758; dashed line histogram) or BD Horizon BUV737 Mouse Anti-Human Bcl-6 antibody (Cat. No. 567412, solid line histogram). A fluorescence histogram showing the expression of Bcl-6 (or Ig Isotype control staining) was derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact cells. Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ X-20 Cell Analyzer System and FlowJo™ software.

BUV737 Mouse Anti-Bcl-6

Multicolor flow cytometric analysis of Bcl-6 expression in mouse B lymphocytes. BALB/c mouse mesenteric lymph node cells were stained with FITC Rat Anti-Mouse B220 (Cat. No. 553088/553087/561877), APC Rat Anti-Mouse CD4 (Cat. No. 553051/561091), PE Hamster Anti-Mouse Fas/CD95 (Cat. No. 554258/561985), and BD Horizon™ BV421 Rat Anti-Mouse IgD (Cat. No. 744291) antibodies. Cells were washed, resuspended in RPMI 1640 medium, and fixed with BD Phosflow™ Lyse/Fix Buffer (Cat. No. 558049). Cells were permeabilized with BD Phosflow™ Perm/Wash Buffer I (Cat. No. 557885), followed by intracellular staining with BD Horizon™ BUV737 Mouse Anti-Bcl-6 antibody (Cat. No. 567412). A bivariate pseudocolor density plot showing the correlated expression of IgD versus Fas/CD95 on B cells was derived from CD4-B220+ gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact lymphocytes (Left Plot). Germinal center (GC) B cells were identified as Fas/CD95-positive B cells that expressed low levels of IgD (IgDloCD95/Fas+) whereas non-GC B cells primarily expressed intermediate to high levels of IgD and little or no CD95/Fas. Histograms (Right Plot) derived from gated cell subsets show intracellular Bcl-6 staining levels for mouse GC B cells (solid line) and non-GC B cells (dashed line). Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ X-20 Cell Analyzer System and FlowJo™ software.

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 the dye under optimum conditions and unconjugated antibody and free dye were removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

       BD™ CompBeads can be used as surrogates to assess fluorescence spillover (Compensation).  When fluorochrome conjugated antibodies are bound to BD CompBeads, they have spectral properties very similar to cells.   However, for some fluorochromes there can be small differences in spectral emissions compared to cells, resulting in spillover values that differ when compared to biological controls.  It is strongly recommended that when using a reagent for the first time, users compare the spillover on cells and BD CompBead to ensure that BD CompBeads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

       For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes 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).

       Note:  When using high concentrations of antibody, background binding of this dye to erythroid cell subsets (mature erythrocytes and precursors) has been observed.  For researchers studying these cell populations, or in cases where light scatter gating does not adequately exclude these cells from the analysis, this background may be an important factor to consider when selecting reagents for panel(s).

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.

K112-91

The K112-91 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to Bcl-6. Bcl-6 was first identified as a proto-oncogene frequently deregulated by chromosomal translocations in non-Hodgkin B-cell lymphomas. It is a nuclear transcriptional repressor of the BTB/POZ zinc-finger family of transcription factors. In addition to its roles in cancer, Bcl-6 plays important roles in the differentiation of normal cells including B cells, thymocytes, CD4+ or CD8+ T cells. Bcl-6 is highly expressed in germinal center B cells, where it promotes the germinal center reaction by inducing proliferation and inhibiting the DNA-damage response. Bcl-6 has been identified as a key factor in promoting the differentiation of CD4+ follicular T helper (Tfh) cells that are involved in promoting germinal center formation and providing help to B cells. The interplay of Bcl-6 and another transcriptional repressor, Blimp-1, is thought to be critical in defining the results of both B-cell and T-cell differentiation.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BUV737 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome with an Ex Max near 350 nm and an Em Max near 737 nm. BD Horizon Brilliant™ BUV737 can be excited by the ultraviolet laser (355 nm) and detected with a 740/35 nm filter.  Due to the excitation of the acceptor dye by the red laser line, there may be significant spillover into red laser detectors with filters in the 700-720 nm range.

BUV737
The BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet 737 (BUV737) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a BUV395 donor with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 350-nm and an acceptor dye with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 735-nm. BUV737, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the ultraviolet laser (355-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 740-nm (e.g., 740/35 bandpass filter). The acceptor dye can be excited by the Red (628–640nm) 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.
