CD360 (IL-21 Receptor), PerCP-eFluor™ 710, clone: 2SX21R, eBioscience™
Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Life Technologies LS46360142
The protein encoded by this gene is a cytokine receptor for interleukin 21 (IL21). It belongs to the type I cytokine receptors, and has been shown to form a heterodimeric receptor complex with the common gamma-chain, a receptor subunit also shared by the receptors for interleukin 2 (IL2) and interleukin 5 (IL5). This receptor transduces the growth promoting signal of IL21, and is important for the proliferation and differentiation of T cells, B cells, and natural killer (NK) cells. The ligand binding of this receptor leads to the activation of multiple downstream signaling molecules, including JAK1, JAK3, STAT1, and STAT3. Knockout studies of a similar gene in mouse suggest a role for this gene in regulating immunoglobulin production. Three alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been described.Description: This 2SX21R monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD360 (Interleukin-21 Receptor, IL-21R). IL-21R forms a heterodimeric receptor complex with the common gamma chain to form a functional receptor for IL-21. IL-21 is a class I cytokine of the common gamma chain family of cytokines and signals through the IL-21R complex to activate the JAK/STAT (Janus Kinase/Signal Transducers and Activators of Transcription) signaling pathway. Activation of the JAK/STAT pathway by IL-21 promotes transcription of genes responsive to STAT1 and STAT3. IL-21 is mainly produced by CD4+ T cells and mediates the proliferation, differentiation, and effector functions of cells expressing IL-21R such as B cells, T cells, NK cells, dendritic cells and other populations of myeloid cells. IL-21 and its receptor are implicated in the pathogenesis of chronic viral infections, autoimmunity, allergy, organ transplantation, and cancer.Applications Reported: This 2SX21R antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.Applications Tested: This 2SX21R antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 μL (0.25 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. PerCP-eFluor™ 710 emits at 710 nm and is excited with the blue laser (488 nm); it can be used in place of PerCP-Cyanine5.5. We recommend using a 710/50 bandpass filter, however, the 695/40 bandpass filter is an acceptable alternative. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.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 (cat. 00-8222) (100 μL of cell sample + 100 μL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (cat. 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: 488 nm; Emission: 710 nm; Laser: Blue Laser.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
