Datasheet Extract

Purified soluble α/β T cell receptor from the cytotoxic T cell clone, KB5-C20. (1)
Isotype control SM15F, SM15FX
Application Flow Cytometry (See Protocols).
This clone has also been reported to work in Immunoprecipitation. (1,2)
Background The TCR alpha chain complexes with the TCR beta chain to form the T cell receptor in 95% of T cells, whereas the remaining 5% of T cells express gamma and delta chains (γ/δ). TCR Vα2 is a distinct TCR subfamily found in mice having the a, b, and c haplotypes.
Concentration 0.1 mg/ml
Protocols Flow Cytometry Analysis:

1. Prepare cell suspension in Media A. For cell reparations, deplete the red blood cell population with Lympholyte®-M cell separation medium.
2. Wash 2 times.
3. Resuspend the cells to a concentration 2x10e7 cells/ml in media A. Add 50 µl of this suspension to each tube (each tube will then contain 1x10e6 cells, representing one test).
4. To each tube add ~1.0 µg of this antibody AM31862FC-N per 1x10e6 cells.
5. Vortex the tubes to ensure thorough mixing of antibody and cells.
6. Incubate tubes at 4°C for 30-60 minutes. (It is recommended that the tubes are protected from light since most fluorochromes are light sensitive).
7. Wash 2 times at 4°C.
8. Resuspend the cell pellet in 50 µl ice cold Media B.
9. Transfer to suitable tubes for flow cytometric analysis containing 15 µl of propidium iodide at 0.5 mg/ml in phosphate buffered saline. This stains dead cells by intercalating DNA.

A. Phosphate buffered saline (pH 7.2) + 5% normal serum of host species + sodium azide (100 µl of 2 M sodium azide in 100 mls).
B. Phosphate buffered saline (pH 7.2) + 0.5% bovine serum albumin + sodium azide (100 µl of 2 M sodium azide in 100 mls).

Storage Store the antibody undiluted at 2-8°C for one month or (in aliquots) at -20°C for longer.
Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
Shelf life: one year from despatch.
Buffer System:
PBS containing 0.09% Sodium Azide as preservative and EIA grade BSA as a stabilizing protein to bring total protein concentration to 4-5 mg/ml.
Liquid purified IgG fraction.
This antibody reacts with Mouse T-Cell Receptor (TCR) Vα2 chains (1), and recognizes the majority of the TCR Vα2 subfamily in mice carrying the a, b and c haplotypes 1,2.
It also reacts with the products of T Cell Receptor, Vδ8 due to the high degree of homology (1).
