Description: The OX-86 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD134, also known as OX40. A member of the TNF receptor superfamily, CD134 is a 50 kDa type I membrane glycoprotein expressed by activated mouse T lymphocytes. Rat CD134 was initially identified as an activation marker only on activated CD4+ T cells. In contrast, mouse CD134 is expressed by both activated CD4+ and CD8+ T cells. The interaction of CD134 with CD252 (OX40 ligand) has been implicated in T cell-dependent humoral responses, regulation of primary T cell expansion, survival of T cells, size of the memory T cell pool, and regulation of tolerance in the CD4+ T cell compartment. Applications Reported: The OX-86 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: The OX-86 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of activated mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 1.0 μg per test. A test is defined as the amount (μg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 μL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. Super Bright 780 is a tandem dye that can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 780 nm. We recommend using a 780/60 bandpass filter. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.When using two or more Super Bright dye-conjugated antibodies in a staining panel, it is recommended to use Super Bright Staining Buffer (Product No. SB-4400) to minimize any non-specific polymer interactions. Please refer to the datasheet for Super Bright Staining Buffer for more information. In some experiments, we have observed that compensation values for Super Bright 780-conjugated antibodies are higher in the violet 450/50 channel when using UltraComp eBeads microspheres (Product No. 01-2222-42) as compared to single-color stained cells. In such circumstances, we would recommend setting compensation with cells. We have also observed this in some experiments using AbC Total Antibody Compensation beads (Product No. A10497). Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive to photo-induced oxidation. Please protect this vial and stained samples from light. Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (Product No. 00-8222) (100 μL of cell sample + 100 μL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (Product No. 00-5333) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically. Excitation: 405 nm; Emission: 780 nm; Laser: Violet Laser. CD127 (Interleukin-7, IL-7) is a glycoprotein involved in the regulation of lymphopoiesis. The response of cells to CD127 is dependent on the presence of the interleukin 7 receptor (IL7R); the active receptor is an alpha/gamma chain heterodimer. CD127 consists of an alpha chain and a gamma chain. The gamma(c) chain, which also associates with the interleukin-2 receptor, serves primarily to activate signal transduction by the IL7R complex, while the alpha chain of IL7R determines specific signaling events through its association with cytoplasmic signaling molecules. CD127 promotes the proliferation of precursor B cells, thymocytes, T cell progenitors, and mature CD4+ and CD8+ T cells. The biological effects of IL7 are mediated by the binding of IL7 to the specific cell surface receptor. Diseases associated with CD127 dysfunction include severe combined immunodeficiency and T cell negative/B cell negative/NK positive severe combined immunodeficiency.
