IDO Rat anti-Mouse, eFluor® 660, Clone: mIDO-48, eBioscience™
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Life Technologies LS50947382
Description: The monoclonal antibody mIDO-48 reacts with mouse indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 1(IDO1). IDO1 is an enzyme expressed intracellularly by dendritic cells, interferon gamma activated macrophages, epithelial cells, vascular endothelium and tumor cells. This enzyme catalyzes tryptophan into kynurenine metabolites. The reduction of tryptophan and the introduction of kynurenine metabolites in the microenvironment of IDO-expressing cells suppress T cell proliferation and promote the activation and induction of regulatory T cells. Applications Reported: This mIDO-48 antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This mIDO-48 antibody has been tested by intracellular staining and flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes using the Intracellular Fixation & Permeabilization Buffer Set (cat. 88-8824) and protocol. Please refer to Best Protocols: Protocol A: Two step protocol for (cytoplasmic) intracellular proteins located under the Resources Tab online. This can be used at less than or equal to 1 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.eFluor® 660 is a replacement for Alexa Fluor® 647. eFluor® 660 emits at 659 nm and is excited with the red laser (633 nm). Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochome. Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 668 nm; Laser: Red Laser. Filtration: 0.2 μm post-manufacturing filtered. Gamma-interferon (IFNG, MIM 147570) has an antiproliferative effect on many tumor cells and inhibits intracellular pathogens such as Toxoplasma and Chlamydia, at least partly because of the induction of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (INDO, EC 184.108.40.206). This enzyme catalyzes the degradation of the essential amino acid L-tryptophan to N-formyl-kynurenine.
