FITC Mouse Anti-Mouse Vβ 8 T-Cell Receptor
FITC Mouse Anti-Mouse Vβ 8 T-Cell Receptor
Two-color analysis of the expression of Vβ 8 TCR on peripheral lymphocytes. C57BL/6 lymph node cells were incubated simultaneously with FITC Mouse Anti-Mouse Vβ 8 T-Cell Receptor (Cat. No. 553861), PE Rat Anti-Mouse CD4 (Cat. No. 553048/553049), and PE Rat Anti-Mouse CD8a (Cat. No. 553032/553033) monoclonal antibodies. 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 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. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.

F23.1

The F23.1 antibody specifically reacts with the Vβ 8.1, Vβ 8.2, and Vβ 8.3 T-cell receptors (TCR) of mice having the b haplotype (e.g., A, AKR, BALB/c, CBA/Ca, CBA/J, C3H/He, C57BL, C58, DBA/1, DBA/2) of the Tcrb gene complex. The Tcrb-V8 subfamily gene loci are deleted in mice having the a (e.g., C57BR, C57L, SJL, SWR) or c (e.g., RIII) haplotype. Vβ 8.1 TCR-bearing T lymphocytes are clonally eliminated in mice expressing superantigen coded by Mtv-7 (Mls-1a, Mlsa) provirus (e.g., AKR, CBA/J, C58, DBA/2), and activation or elimination of Vβ 8.1 TCR-expressing T cells by this determinant is partially dependent upon presentation by I-E. Mtv-43 and/or exogenous MMTV-SW superantigens also cause incomplete elimination of Vβ 8.1 TCR-bearing T cells. In addition to expression on conventional T lymphocytes, Vβ 8.2 is the predominant β chain of the TCR on NK-T cells. Staphylococcal enterotoxin B, in association with antigen-presenting cells expressing I-A and/or I-E, stimulates lymphocytes bearing Vβ 8 TCR and selectively eliminates those T cells in vivo. Soluble and plate-bound F23.1 antibody activates Vβ 8 TCR-bearing T cells, soluble antibody blocks cytolysis mediated by Vβ 8 TCR-bearing cytotoxic T lymphocytes, and in vivo treatment of neonatal mice can arrest intrathymic maturation of Vβ 8 TCR-bearing T cells.

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.
