Biotin Rat Anti-Mouse Vβ 11 T-Cell Receptor
Biotin Rat Anti-Mouse Vβ 11 T-Cell Receptor

Two-color analysis of the expression of Vβ 11 TCR on peripheral lymphocytes. C57BL/6 lymph node cells were incubated simultaneously with Biotin Rat Anti-Mouse Vβ 11 T-Cell Receptor (Cat. 553196), PE Rat Anti-Mouse CD4 (Cat. No. 553048/553049), and PE Rat Anti-Mouse CD8a (Cat. No. 553032/553033) monoclonal antibodies, followed by Avidin FITC (Cat. No. 554057). The fluorescence contour plot was derived from gated events based on the forward and side light-scattering of viable lymphocytes. Flow cytometry was performed on a FACScan™.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with biotin under optimum conditions, and unreacted biotin was removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

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

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.
  4. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  5. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.

RR3-15

The RR3-15 antibody reacts with the Vβ 11 T-Cell Receptor (TCR) of mice having the b haplotype (e.g., A, C57BL, C58, DBA/1) of the Tcrb gene complex. The Tcrb-V11 gene locus is deleted in mice having the a (e.g., C57BR, C57L, SJL, SWR) and c (e.g., RIII) haplotypes. Vβ TCR-bearing T lymphocytes are clonally eliminated in mice expressing I-E and superantigens encoded by Mtv-9 (Etc-1, Mls[f], Dvb11.2) and/or Mtv-11 (Mls[f], Dvb 11.2) proviruses (e.g., AKR, BALB/c, CBA/J, C3H, DBA/2), and they are incompletely eliminated in mice expressing I-E and Mtv-8 (Mls[f], Dvb 11.1) superantigen (e.g., A). Activation of Vβ 11 TCR-expressing T cells by these determinants is dependent upon presentation by I-E. The bacterial superantigen Staphylococcal enterotoxin A (SEA) also interacts with Vβ 11 TCR, and in vivo exposure to SEA causes activation and subsequent deletion of Vβ TCR-expressing lymphocytes. Plate-bound RR3-15 antibody activates Vβ 11 TCR-bearing T cells.

Biotin
Biotin is a ubiquitous co-factor (also known as Vitamin B7) that has many properties that make it extremely useful for molecular biology. Biotin has an extremely high affinity for the Avidin family of proteins (Kd = 10-15 M), making it the perfect tool to link two molecules. Biotin labeled antibodies can be combined with any number of Avidin-conjugated probes in order to customize an assay to a particular need. This is especially useful in the case of magnetic cell separation using streptavidin/magnetic bead conjugates, or in the case of flow cytometry using streptavidin/fluorophore conjugates.
