PerCP-Cy™5.5 Mouse anti-Stat1 (pY701)
PerCP-Cy™5.5 Mouse anti-Stat1 (pY701)

Analysis of Stat1 (pY701) in human peripheral blood monocytes. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) were either left unstimulated (unshaded) or stimulated (shaded) with 100 ng/ml (final concentration) BD Pharmingen™ Recombinant Human IFNγ (Cat. No. 554617) for 15 minutes at 37°C. The PBMC were fixed (BD Cytofix™ Fixation buffer, Cat. No. 554655) for 10 minutes at 37°C, then permeabilized (BD Phosflow™ Perm Buffer III, Cat. No. 558050) on ice for 30 minutes and then stained with PerCP-CY™5.5 anti-Stat1 (pY701). For data analysis, monocytes were selected by scatter profile. Flow cytometry was performed on a BD FACSCanto™ II flow cytometer.

Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with PerCP-Cy5.5 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PerCP-Cy5.5 were removed. Storage of PerCP-Cy5.5 conjugates in unoptimized diluent is not recommended and may result in loss of signal intensity. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

Recommended Assay Procedures

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

This mAb was characterized by flow cytometry (Flow) and western blot analysis (WB) using these model systems:

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. Please observe the following precautions: Absorption of visible light can significantly alter the energy transfer occurring in any tandem fluorochrome conjugate; therefore, we recommend that special precautions be taken (such as wrapping vials, tubes, or racks in aluminum foil) to prevent exposure of conjugated reagents, including cells stained with those reagents, to room illumination.
  3. PerCP-Cy5.5–labelled antibodies can be used with FITC- and R-PE–labelled reagents in single-laser flow cytometers with no significant spectral overlap of PerCP-Cy5.5, FITC, and R-PE fluorescence.
  4. PerCP-Cy5.5 is optimized for use with a single argon ion laser emitting 488-nm light. Because of the broad absorption spectrum of the tandem fluorochrome, extra care must be taken when using dual-laser cytometers, which may directly excite both PerCP and Cy5.5™. We recommend the use of cross-beam compensation during data acquisition or software compensation during data analysis.

Stat (Signal transducer and activators of transcription) proteins mediate the biological activity of cytokines, including interleukins, interferons, erythropoietin, and growth factors.  Ligand-receptor interaction activates constitutively-associated JAK family kinases as well as subsequent recruitment and activation of Stat proteins by tyrosine phosphorylation.  Active Stat proteins then move to the nucleus to promote transcription of cytokine-inducible genes.  Seven Stat proteins have been cloned, each of which is differentially expressed and/or activated in a cytokine-specific and cell type-specific manner.  Stat1 and Stat2 are components of the ISGF3 (Interferon-Stimulated Gene Factor 3) complex, the primary transcription activator induced by interferon binding to a specific cell-surface receptor.  Stat1 has two alternatively spliced isoforms, 91-kDa Stat1α and 84-kDa Stat1β; Stat1α has 38 additional C-terminal amino acids.  In response to the binding of IFNα, IFNγ, EGF, PDGF, or CSF-1 to their respective receptors, the Stat1 subunits become tyrosine-phosphorylated at Y701, and the complex translocates to the nucleus. This forms an active complex that includes the DNA-binding p48 subunit, and is responsible for modulating interferon-stimulated genes (ISGs) transciption.

The 4a monoclonal antibody recognizes the phosphorylated Y701 in Stat1α and Stat1β.

PerCP-Cy5.5
PerCP-Cy5.5 dye is part of the BD blue family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a fluorescent protein complex (PerCP) with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 482 nm and an acceptor dye with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 676 nm. PerCP-Cy5 is designed to be excited by the blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 680 nm (e.g., a 695/40 nm bandpass filter). The donor dye can be partially excited by the Violet (405-nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
