APC Rat anti-Mouse CD25
APC Rat anti-Mouse CD25

Flow cytometric analysis of APC-conjugated anti-mouse CD25 on mouse splenocytes.

Concanavlin A activated murine splenocytes were stained with either APC anti-CD25(clone 3C7, Cat. No. 558643, solid line) or an APC rat IgG2b isotype control (catalog number 553991, dashed line) and analyzed by flow cytometry.  Flow cytometry was performed on a BD FACSCalibur™ System and the histograms were derived from the gated events based on light scattering characteristics of viable splenocytes.

Preparation And Storage

The polyclonal antibody was purified from antiserum by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated to APC under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free APC were removed. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

3C7

The 3C7 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD25, the low affinity IL-2 Receptor (IL-2Rα, p55) expressed on activated T and B lymphocytes from all mouse strains tested. IL-2Rα by itself is not a signaling receptor. However, it can combine with IL-2 Receptor β (CD122) and γc (CD132) chains to form high-affinity signaling receptor complexes for IL-2. Resting T and B lymphocytes as well as resting and activated NK cells do not express IL-2Rα. CD25 is transiently expressed at a low level during normal B-cell development in the bone marrow during the CD45R/B220low TdT- sIg- Pre-B/Pre-B-II and CD45R/B220low TdT- sIgM+ sIgD- immature B stages, but not during the CD45R/B220low TdT+ sIg- Pro-B/Pre B-I stage nor on CD45R/B220high TdTsIgM+ sIgD+ mature B cells. It is expressed at a higher level during a very early stage of T-cell development in fetal and adult thymus. Peripheral CD25+ CD4+ T lymphocytes called regulatory T (Treg) cells are involved in the maintenance of self-tolerance. It has also been reported that dendritic cells express CD25 (recognized by mAb 7D4, another CD25-specific antibody). The 3C7 antibody recognizes an epitope of CD25 which is distinct from those recognized by the other CD25-specific mAbs, 7D4 and PC61. 3C7 blocks the binding of IL-2 to CD25.

APC
Allophycocyanin (APC), is part of the BD family of phycobiliprotein dyes. This fluorochrome is a multimeric fluorescent phycobiliprotein with excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 651 nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 660 nm. APC is designed to be excited by the Red (627-640 nm) laser and detected using an optical filter centered near 660 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.
