Human Neural Lineage Analysis Kit

Neural Induction of H9 hESC:  H9 Human embryonic stem cells (hESC) (Wicell Madison, WI) were cultured on mouse embryonic fibroblasts in hESC medium (DMEM:F12, 20% Knockout Serum Replacement (KOSR), non-essential amino acids, 20 mM glutamine) (Invitrogen), 1X penicillin/streptomycin (Lonza), bFGF (Cat. No. 354060).  Cell cultures were treated with Dispase (Cat. No. 354235) and cell colonies were scraped and placed in hESC medium without FGF in low adhesion plates to form embroid bodies (EB).  After 4 days the EBs were plated on BD Matrigel-coated plates (Cat. No. 354277) and placed in neural induction medium (DMEM:F12 (Invitrogen), 1X ITS supplement (Sigma), 250 ng/ml recombinant Noggin (R&D Systems) and penicillin/streptomycin (Lonza) and cultured for an additional 15 days.

Differentiation of H9-derived NSC: H9 hESC-derived NSC were differentiated in neural differentiation medium (DMEM:F12, 0.5X B27, 0.5X N2 (Invitrogen), 1X penicillin/streptomycin (Lonza), 20 ng/ml BDNF, 20ng/ml GDNF (both from Peprotech) and 0.5 mM dibutyryl cyclic AMP (Sigma) for 28 days.

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 to Alexa Fluor® 488 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 488 was 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 with FITC under optimum conditions, and unreacted FITC was removed. 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

(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).  Detachment can take up to 45 minutes with mild to moderate triturating of the cell suspension.

(2)  Wash the cells in 1X PBS and filter using a 70 μm Falcon® cell strainer (Corning Cat. No. 352350).

(3)  Resuspend the cells in BD Cytofix™ Fixation Buffer (Cat. No. 554655) and incubate at room temperature for 20 minutes in the dark.  Recommended volumes for fixing cells is 1 ml of BD Cytofix™ Fixation Buffer per 10 million cells with a minimum volume of 200 µl.

(4)  Wash the cells twice with 1X PBS.   If investigators wish to continue at a later time, cells may be frozen and stored in a solution of 10% DMSO +  90% FBS at -80°C using standard methods for the cryopreservation of live cells.

(5)  Vortex to loosen the cells and then permeabilize the cells by slowly adding ice cold BD Phosflow™ Perm Buffer III (Cat. No. 558050) while vortexing.  Recommended volumes for permeabilizing cells is 1 ml of BD Phosflow™ Perm Buffer III per 10 million cells with a minimum volume of 1 mL.

(6)  Incubate on ice for 30 minutes, or alternatively, the cells can be stored in BD Phosflow™ Perm Buffer III for up to 6 months at -20°C.

(7)  Wash the cells twice with BD Pharmingen™ Stain Buffer (FBS) (Cat. No.554656) and resuspend at 5 - 10 million cells/ml in BD Pharmingen™ Stain Buffer (FBS) .  Alternatively, 1X Washing/Staining Solution (1 x PBS,1% FCS, and 0.09% sodium azide) may be used.

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

(9)  Add panel of antibody conjugates that you wish to use ( 5µl/test of each antibody conjugate) and incubate in the dark for 30 minutes.

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

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

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. Other methods can be used depending on the confluency and number of cells, such as with 0.05% trypsin.

Fixation and Permeabilization Methods:  The components of this kit are all compatible with each other.  However if additional specificities are included, those antibody conjugates must be verified to work with the fix/perm buffers included in this kit.

Instrument Set Up:  BD™ CompBead Plus particles (Cat. No. 560497 or 560499) may be beneficial in setting up the experiment on a flow cytometer.  Investigators are encouraged to set up PMT voltages with the BD™ CompBead Plus particles and then checking to ensure the voltage settings are appropriate by running a stained sample of cells before running the entire experiment.

Data Analysis:  A cluster based gating approach is recommended when analyzing data. Backgating to the scatter profile may be useful as the neurons have a distinct scatter population.

In many neural differentiation cultures, it can take a very long time for GFAP to be expressed (greater than 1 month).  We have observed that GFAP expression can be augmented by culturing cells in media formulated for astrocyte growth (see below).

Cell debris can sometimes bleed into the neuronal cell population and use of live-dead discriminators can be useful for delineating the neuronal population.

Cell Populations:  This kit has been developed for use on neural cell populations that have been derived from human pluripotent stem cells using the methods described in the figure legend below.  This kit has not been tested on other cell types, including primary cells, and results may differ when examining cell types of a different origin (e.g higher background staining).  In these instances, investigators may find it helpful to use isotype controls to distinguish non-specific background staining from specific antibody staining.

製品通知

  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® 488 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC).
  3. Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for allophycocyanin (APC).
  4. Alexa Fluor® is a registered trademark of Molecular Probes, Inc., Eugene, OR.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. This PerCP-conjugated product is sold under license to the following patent: US Patent No. 4,876,190.
  9. Cy is a trademark of Amersham Biosciences Limited. This conjugated product is sold under license to the following patents: US Patent Nos. 5,486,616; 5,569,587; 5,569,766; 5,627,027.

  11. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  12. 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.
