FITC Mouse Anti-Mouse Vβ 17[a] T-Cell Receptor
FITC Mouse Anti-Mouse Vβ 17[a] T-Cell Receptor

Two-color analysis of the expression of Vß17a TCR on peripheral lymphocytes. SJL/J lymph node cells were incubated simultaneously with FITC-conjugated mAb KJ23, PE-conjugated anti-mouse CD4 mAb RM4-5 (Cat. no. 553048/553049), and PE-conjugated anti-mouse CD8a mAb 53-6.7 (Cat. no. 553032/553033). Flow cytometry was performed on a BD FACScan™ flow cytometry system.

Preparation And Storage

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. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

Recommended Assay Procedures

For flow cytometry of cell suspensionsfrom peripheral lymphoid tissues, it is recommended that multicolor staining be performed todistinguish T lymphocytes from non-T cells.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  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.

KJ23

The KJ23 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes Vβ 17[a] T-cell Receptor (TCR) of mice having the a haplotype (eg,C57L, SJL, SWR) of the Tcrb gene complex. Strains having the b (eg, A, AKR, BALB/c, CBA,C3H/He, C57BL, C58, DBA/1, DBA/2) Tcrb haplotype do not express functional Vβ 17 TCR, and the Tcrb-V17 gene locus is deleted in mice having the c (eg, RIII) haplotype. Vβ 17[a] TCR-bearing Tlymphocytes are clonally eliminated in mice expressing I-E (eg, C57BR). KJ23 antibody also recognizes two phenotypic variants of the Vβ 17[a] TCR: Vβ 17[a2] expressed in a variety of wild-derivedmouse strains and Vβ 17[a(cz)] expressed in Mtv-free CZ mice. The effects of Mtv-encoded superantigens upon Vβ 17[a] TCR-bearing T cells has been reviewed. Plate-bound KJ23 antibody activates Vβ 17[a] TCR-bearing T cells, and injection of the antibody can deplete Vβ 17[a]-bearing Tcells.

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.
