Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Analysis and Sorting Kit

Reprogramming Time-Course: Foreskin fibroblasts (Fate Therapeutics, San Diego, CA) that were reprogrammed in feeder free SMC4 small molecule conditions (Valamehr et al., 2012) were analyzed by flow cytometry using the BD StemflowHuman iPSC Sorting and Analysis Kit.  Reprogrammed cells were analyzed and bulk sorted at day 21 post transduction (upper panels).  Bulk sorted cells were further expanded and re-sorted at day 35 post-transduction (lower panels). Cells were sorted based on identifying cells in FSC vs SSC plot (P1), creating a child gate from P1 that includes CD13-/low cells (P2), and creating a child gate from P2 that includes SSEA-4+TRA-1-60+ cells (P3). Flow cytometry was performed on a BD FACS Aria™ III flow cytometry system.

調製と保管

Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze. The antibody was conjugated with R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were removed. 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. The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 was removed.

推奨アッセイ手順

This panel has been tested on foreskin fibroblasts reprogrammed in a feeder-free system using a small molecule cocktail, SMC4 (Please see Valamehr et al, 2012 for details).  Using the panel, cells were isolated using Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting (FACS) at an early stage, approximately days 20 post-transduction. Cells that were bulk sorted at this stage were further grown. At approximately 30 days post transduction, cells were both bulk and single sorted. As cells, reprogramming methods, and time courses can differ, specific sorting, analysis times, and results may vary.

Directions for Cell Analysis

(1) Detach cells of interest from the culture dish. Investigators are encouraged to detach cells at 37°C using Accutase™ Cell Detachment Solution (Cat. No. 561527).  Mild to moderate triturating of the cell suspension is recommended to achieve a single cell suspension.

(2) Use media or 1XPBS to remove residual cells from plate.  If clumps are present, cells can be filtered using a 70 mm BD Falcon™ cell strainer (Cat. No. 352350).

(3) Collect and spin down cells.

(4) Resuspend at 5 - 10 million cells/ml in BD Pharmingen™ Stain Buffer (FBS) (Cat. No. 554656). Alternatively, a solution containing 1 x PBS,1% FCS, and 0.09% sodium azide may be used.

(5) Label tubes and add the corresponding antibody conjugates as described below. Vortex CompBead Plus prior to use:

Tube Label                                                Add (1 test or drop)                                

1. Unlabeled compensation                         Negative CompBead plus + Anti-mouse Compbead plus

2. PE compensation                                 Negative CompBead plus + Anti-mouse Compbead plus + TRA-1-60 PE

3. PerCP-Cy™5.5 compensation                 Negative CompBead plus + Anti-mouse Compbead plus + CD13 PerCP-Cy™5.5

4. Alexa Fluor® 647 compensation        Negative CompBead plus + Anti-mouse Compbead plus + SSEA-4 Alexa Fluor® 647

4. Cells alone                                                 Nothing

5. Isotype control                                         Ms IgGM PE + Ms IgG1 PerCP-Cy5.5 + Ms IgG3 Alexa Fluor® 647

6. Analysis sample                                         TRA-1-60 PE + CD13 PerCP-Cy5.5 + SSEA-4 Alexa Fluor® 647

(6) Add 100 μl cells into appropriately labeled 12 x 75mm polystyrene tubes.

(7) Incubate in the dark for 30 minutes.

(8) Wash twice with 2 ml BD Pharmingen™ Stain Buffer (FBS).

(9) Resuspend sample in appropriate volume (350-400μl) of BD Pharmingen™ Stain Buffer (FBS) to run on a flow cytometer.

Directions for Cell Sorting

(All steps performed using sterile techniques)

(1) Detach cells of interest from the culture dish. Investigators are encouraged to detach cells at 37°C using Accutase™ Cell Detachment Solution (Cat. No. 561527).  Mild to moderate triturating of the cell suspension is recommended to achieve a single cell suspension.

(2) Use media to remove residual cells from plate.  If clumps are present, cells can be filtered using a 70 mm BD Falcon™ cell strainer (Cat. No. 352350).

(3) Collect and spin down cells.

(4) Resuspend cells at around 5-10 million cells/ml in appropriate sorting buffer. For this application, we utilized HBSS/4%FBS/10mM HEPES/1X Pen/Strep/10uM Thiazovivin.

(5) Use sterile 12x75mm tubes with caps. Label tubes and add the corresponding antibody conjugates as described below:

Tube Label                                                Add (1 test or drop)                                

1. Unlabeled compensation                         Negative CompBead plus + Anti-mouse Compbead plus

2. PE compensation                                 Negative CompBead plus + Anti-mouse Compbead plus + TRA-1-60 PE

3. PerCP-Cy™5.5 compensation                 Negative CompBead plus + Anti-mouse Compbead plus + CD13 PerCP-Cy™5.5

4. Alexa Fluor® 647 compensation        Negative CompBead plus + Anti-mouse Compbead plus + SSEA-4 Alexa Fluor® 647

4. Cells alone                                                 Nothing

5. Isotype control                                         Ms IgGM PE + Ms IgG1 PerCP-Cy5.5 + Ms IgG3 Alexa Fluor® 647

6. Sort sample                                         2 tests (10ul) each of TRA-1-60 PE + CD13 PerCP-Cy5.5 + SSEA-4  Alexa Fluor® 647

(6) Add 50-100 ul of cells to tube 4 and 5.

(7) Add up to 500ul cells (5 million cells) of cells to tube 6.

(8) If you wish to sort more than 5 million cells we recommend replicating tube 6 with additional cells that you wish to sort.

(9) Incubate cells on ice in the dark for 20-30 minutes.

(10) Wash cells once 2ml in appropriate sorting buffer (tubes 4-6). Compensation tubes 1-4 can be washed with 1X sterile PBS.

(11) Resuspend cells in appropriate sorting buffer (we utilized HBSS/4%FBS/10mM HEPES/1X Pen/Strep/10uM Thiazovivin) at a concentration of 2.5 to 5 million cells/ml.  Alternatively please contact your cell sorter operator to get a suggested final concentration of cells for sorting

Kit Considerations:

Choosing a Cell Detachment Enzyme: Investigators are encouraged to use Accutase™ Cell Detachment Solution (Cat. No. 561527), as cell death with this detachment method has been observed to be minimal.

Bulk and Single Cell Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting Considerations: Using the panel, cells were bulk sorted at early and late reprogramming stages (approximately days 20 and 30 post transduction) and single cell sorted at approximately day 30 post-transduction.

For additional details on workflow and the concept of single cell sorting of hiPSC please see Valamehr et al, 2012 for details. For single cell sorting, it is recommended to plate cells into 96-well plates at various cell numbers (we have been successful with cells plated at 1, 3, and 9 cells per well) since plating efficiencies can vary.

Note that in cells reprogrammed in and grown in SMC4 media, Fibronectin (Cat. No. 356008) used at 5 µg/ml can be beneficial for both bulk and single cell sorting when kept in the media approximately 48 hours post-sort. Additionally, if cells that are plated in 96-well plates need to be grown on the same matrix for more than one week, fibronectin may be added at 5 µg/ml to assist in maintenance of cell attachment.

Data Analysis: A cluster based gating approach is recommended when analyzing data.

  1. 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.
  2. Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for allophycocyanin (APC).
  3. Alexa Fluor® is a registered trademark of Molecular Probes, Inc., Eugene, OR.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
