Regulatory Status Legend
Engagement of the T cell receptor (TCR) induces signal transduction pathways that enhance gene transcription and cellular proliferation and differentiation. TCR ligation results in the recruitment and activation of multiple protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs), including lck, fyn, and ZAP70. Adaptor proteins, such as Grb2 and SLP-76, relay the signal to downstream effector molecules. LAT (linker for activation of T cells) is a substrate of the activated ZAP70 and functions to bridge the activated TCR and its associated PTKs with tyrosine kinase substrates. LAT is expressed as 36- and 38-kDa forms that result from post-translational modification, and as a 42-kDa form that results from alternative splicing. LAT is an integral membrane protein that is phosphorylated at five tyrosine sites upon TCR ligation. Following phosphorylation, LAT binds a number of important signaling molecules, including Grb2, Vav, PLCγ1, and the p85 subunit of PI3K. Multiple studies have shown that functional LAT is required for T lymphocyte activation and thymocyte development.
The I58-1169 monoclonal antibody recognizes the phosphorylated tyrosine 171 (pY171) of LAT, which is one of the phosphotyrosine sites required for binding phosphoinositide 3-kinase, Grb2, and Gads.
Alexa Fluor® 647 conjugates are highly photostable and remain fluorescent over a broad pH range. The excitation and emission maxima are nearly identical to those of APC. However, APC tends to be brighter while Alexa Fluor® 647 is more optimal for intracellular applications. This fluorochrome exhibits uncommon photostability, making it an ideal choice for use in fluorescence microscopy. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, APC and Alexa Fluor® 647 cannot be used simultaneously.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 was removed.
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
- 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).
