Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse Anti-Human Lin-28
Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse Anti-Human Lin-28
Flow cytometric analysis of Lin-28 expression in human embryonic stem (ES) cells. H9 human ES cells (WiCell, Madison, WI) grown on irradiated mouse embryonic fibroblasts were harvested with Accutase™ (Cat. No. 561527), fixed with BD Cytofix™ fixation buffer (Cat. No. 554655) and permeabilized with BD Phosflow™ Perm buffer III (Cat. No. 558050). The cells were then stained with either Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse IgG1, κ isotype control (dashed line, Cat. No. 557782) or Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse anti-Human Lin-28 monoclonal antibody (solid line, Cat. No. 563597) at matched concentrations. Histograms were derived from gated events based on light scattering characteristics of H9 human ES cells. Flow cytometry was performed on a BD LSRFortessa™ 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.

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. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  3. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.

Lin-28 is an evolutionarily conserved RNA-binding protein that is expressed in embryonic tissue, embryonic stem cells, and some adult tissues (e.g. cardiac and skeletal muscle). Within these cells, it is localized to ribosomes, P-bodies, and stress granules. During embryonic development, Lin-28 acts as a "translational enhancer" by binding to certain mRNAs and increasing their translation efficiency. Additionally, Lin-28 is overexpressed in some human cancer cell lines and is associated with the malignant transformation of cells as well as advanced human malignancies. This role is thought to be tied to the binding of Lin-28 to pre-microRNA of let-7, which in its mature form promotes terminal differentiation of stem cells and suppresses tumors. The binding of Lin-28 to the immature version of let-7 blocks its cleavage into mature microRNA, thereby preventing it from carrying out its function in tumor suppression. Lin-28, in combination with additional factors, has been used to reprogram human somatic cells into induced pluripotent stem cells.

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.
