PE Mouse Anti- Stat6 (pY641)
PE Mouse Anti- Stat6 (pY641)

Flow cytometric analysis of phospho-Stat6 (Y641). Human endothelial cells were starved overnight in DMEM containing 0.1% FBS. The following day, cells were either left unstimulated (unshaded) or stimulated (shaded) with human IL-4 recombinant protein (Cat. No. 554605) at 10 ng/ml for 60 minutes at 37°C. Cells were fixed using BD Phosflow™ Fix buffer I (Cat. No. 557870; 10 minutes at 37°C) and then permeabilized using BD Phosflow™ Perm Buffer III (Cat. No. 558050; 30 minutes on ice or overnight at -20°C). Cells were then washed twice in BD Pharmingen™ Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 554656) and stained with PE Mouse Anti- Stat6 (pY641) (Cat. No. 612701).

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 R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were 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. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  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. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.

18/P-Stat6

Interleukin-4 (IL-4), a major immunoregulatory cytokine, is secreted by activated T lymphocytes, basophils, and mast cells and plays an important role in modulating T helper cell lineage development. It induces specific gene expression via the tyrosine phosphorylation of Stat6 at tyrosine 641 (Y641). Stat6, a member of the signal transducers and activators of transcription protein family, mediates signals for IL-4 and, possibly, IL-13. While Stat6 is widely expressed in human tissues, it exhibits elevated expression in peripheral blood lymphocytes, colon, intestine, ovary, prostate, thymus, spleen, kidney, liver, lung, and placenta. Following cytokine receptor ligation, Jak kinases are activated and phosphorylate the cytoplasmic tails of the oligomerized receptors. The SH3:SH2 domain of Stat6 associates with tyrosine-phosphorylated IL-4 receptor and the proximal Jak kinase phosphorylates Stat6 at Y641 on the C-terminal side of the SH2 domain. Stat6 is then released from the receptor, dimerizes, and is thought to contact the basal transcription machinery by binding to p300/CBP. Thus, Stat6 mediates the IL-4 signal and is essential for the proper development of adaptive immunity.

PE
R-Phycoerythrin (PE), is part of the BD family of Phycobiliprotein dyes. This fluorochrome is a multimeric fluorescent phycobiliprotein with excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 496 nm and 566 nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 576 nm. PE is designed to be excited by the Blue (488 nm), Green (532 nm) and Yellow-Green (561 nm) lasers and detected using an optical filter centered near 575 nm (e.g., a 575/26-nm bandpass filter). As PE is excited by multiple lasers, this can result in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover on instruments with various combinations of Blue, Green, and Yellow-Green lasers. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
