BV711 Rat Anti-Mouse IL-4
BV711 Rat Anti-Mouse IL-4

Two-color flow cytometric analysis of IL-4 expression in stimulated mouse T cells. Mouse splenic CD4+ T cells were cultured (2 days) with plate-bound Purified NA/LE Hamster Anti-Mouse CD3e (Cat. No. 553057; 10 μg/ml for coating) and soluble Purified NA/LE Hamster Anti-Mouse CD28 (Cat. No. 553294; 2 μg/ml) antibodies with Recombinant IL-2 (Cat. No. 550069; 10 ng/ml) and IL-4 (Cat. No. 550067; 25 ng/ml). The cells were subsequently cultured (3 days) with Recombinant IL-2 and IL-4. The cells were then stimulated with PMA (Sigma Cat. No. P-8139) and Ionomycin (Sigma Cat. No. I-0634) in the presence of BD GolgiStop™ Protein Transport Inhibitor (containing Monensin) (Cat. No. 554724) for 6 hours.

       The cells were harvested, washed, and fixed and permeabilized with BD Cytofix/Cytoperm™ Fixation and Permeabilization Solution (Cat. No. 554722). The cells were then washed and stained in BD Perm/Wash™ Buffer (Cat. No. 554723) with FITC Rat Anti-Mouse CD4 antibody (Cat. No. 553047/553046/561835) and either BD Horizon™ BV711 Rat IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 563283; Left Panel) or BD Horizon™ BV711 Rat Anti-Mouse IL-4 antibody (Cat. No. 564005; Right Panel). Flow cytometric dot plots showing correlated expression of IL-4 (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus CD4 were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact stimulated lymphocytes. Flow cytometric analysis was performed using a BD™ LSR II Flow Cytometer System.

准备和存储

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 BD Horizon™ BV711 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon™ BV711 were removed.

推荐的实验流程

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes are used in the same experiment.  Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation.  The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions.  More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794/566349) or the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer Plus (Cat. No. 566385).

11B11

Interleukin-4 (IL-4) is a pleiotropic cytokine that has many roles, such as inducing the differentiation of naïve helper T cells (Th0 cells) to Th2 cells, stimulating activated B-cell and T-cell proliferation, and promoting immunoglobulin class switching to IgG1 and IgE in mouse B-cells.  IL-4 is expressed by CD4 T-cells, mast cells, basophils and eosinophils.  IL-4 was previously known as B-Cell Differentiation Factor (BCDF) or B-cell Stimulatory Factor (BSF1).  The 11B11 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to mouse IL-4. The immunogen used to generate the 11B11 hybridoma was partially purified mouse IL-4 prepared from the supernatant of Phorbol 12-Myristate 13-Acetate (PMA)-stimulated EL-4 cells. The 11B11 antibody is reportedly a neutralizing antibody.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV711 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 with an Ex Max of 405-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 711-nm.  BD Horizon BV711 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in a filter used to detect Cy™5.5 / Alexa Fluor® 700-like dyes (eg, 712/20-nm filter).  Due to the excitation and emission characteristics of the acceptor dye, there may be moderate spillover into the Alexa Fluor® 700 and PerCP-Cy5.5 detectors.  However, the spillover can be corrected through compensation as with any other dye combination.

BV711
The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 711 (BV711) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a BV421 donor with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 407-nm and an acceptor dye with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 713-nm. BV711, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 710-nm (e.g., a 712/20-nm bandpass filter). The acceptor dye can be excited by the Red (628–640-nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
