Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse anti-GATA3
Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse anti-GATA3

Comparison of GATA3 expression in human T and B cell lines.  Jurkat T leukemia (ATCC TIB152, shaded histogram) and Ramos Burkitt's lymphoma (ATCC CRL-1596, open histogram) were fixed with pre-warmed BD Cytofix™ buffer (Cat. No. 554655) for 10 minutes at 37ºC, permeabilized with BD™ Phosflow Perm Buffer III (Cat. No. 558050) on ice for at least 30 minutes, and then stained with either Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse anti-GATA3 (Cat. No. 560163/560077) or Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse IgG1 κ Isotype control (Cat. No. 557782, not shown).  The GATA3 staining on the Jurkat cell line was significantly brighter than the isotype control on Jurkat cells, while the GATA3 staining on the Ramos cells coincided very closely to its isotype control (data not shown).  Thus, GATA3 expression was detected on the T cell line but not the B cell line.  Flow cytometry was performed on a BD™ LSR II flow cytometry system.

Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse anti-GATA3

Comparison of GATA3 expression in mouse Th2 and Th1 cell lines.  D10.G4.1 Th2 lymphoblasts (ATCC TIB-224, shaded histogram)  and 2D6 Th1 clone (Ahn et al, 1998, open histogram) were fixed with pre-warmed BD Cytofix™ buffer (Cat. No. 554655) for 10 minutes at 37ºC, permeabilized with BD™ Phosflow Perm Buffer III (Cat. No. 558050) on ice for at least 30 minutes, and then stained with either Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse anti-GATA3 or Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse IgG1 κ Isotype control (Cat. No. 557782, not shown).  When compared to the respective isotype controls, the GATA3 staining on the D10.G4.1 cell line was significantly brighter than on the 2D6 cells.  Flow cytometry was performed on a BD™ LSR II flow cytometry system.

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 Alexa Fluor® 488 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 488 was removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

Either BD Cytofix™ fixation buffer or BD™ Phosflow Fix Buffer I may be used for cell fixation.

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. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  4. 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.
  5. Alexa Fluor® 488 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC).
  6. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  7. The Alexa Fluor®, Pacific Blue™, and Cascade Blue® dye antibody conjugates in this product are sold under license from Molecular Probes, Inc. for research use only, excluding use in combination with microarrays, or as analyte specific reagents. The Alexa Fluor® dyes (except for Alexa Fluor® 430), Pacific Blue™ dye, and Cascade Blue® dye are covered by pending and issued patents.

L50-823

GATA3 (GATA binding protein 3) is a member of the GATA family of transcription factors. This ~50-kDa nuclear protein regulates the development and subsequent maintenance of multiple tissues. GATA3 is involved in the development of T lymphocytes (regulates T cell receptor subunit gene expression) and the differentiation of mature T cells to become Th2 cells. The expressed levels of normal or mutant GATA3 are also associated with the behaviors of various cancer cells including estrogen receptor-positive breast carcinoma cells.

The L50-823 monoclonal antibody recognizes human and mouse GATA3.

Alexa Fluor™ 488
Alexa Fluor™ 488 Dye 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 517-nm. Alexa Fluor™ 488 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.
