FITC Hamster Anti-Mouse γδ T-Cell Receptor
FITC Hamster Anti-Mouse γδ T-Cell Receptor

Two-color analysis of the expression of γδ TCR on peripheral T lymphocytes. C57BL/6 lymph node cells were incubated simultaneously with PE Rat anti-Mouse CD3 Molecular Complex (Cat. No. 555275) and FITC Hamster anti-Mouse γδ T-Cell Receptor (Cat. No. 561996/553177, right panel). Fluorescence dot plots were derived from gated events based on the forward and side light-scattering of viable lymphocytes. Flow cytometry was performed on a BD FACScan™.

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 FITC under optimum conditions, and unreacted FITC 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. Although hamster immunoglobulin isotypes have not been well defined, BD Biosciences Pharmingen has grouped Armenian and Syrian hamster IgG monoclonal antibodies according to their reactivity with a panel of mouse anti-hamster IgG mAbs. A table of the hamster IgG groups, Reactivity of Mouse Anti-Hamster Ig mAbs, may be viewed at http://www.bdbiosciences.com/documents/hamster_chart_11x17.pdf.

GL3

The GL3 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to a common epitope of the δ chain of the T-cell Receptor (TCR) complex on γδ TCR-expressing T lymphocytes and NK-T cells of all mouse strains tested. It does not react with αβ TCR-bearing T cells. In the mouse, cells expressing the γδ TCR are found in the thymus, intestinal epithelium, epidermis, dermis, pulmonsry epithelium, peritoneum, liver, and peripheral lymphoid organs.

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.
