A. Solutions and Reagents

NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water.

  1. 20X Phosphate Buffered Saline (PBS): (#9808) To prepare 1 L 1X PBS: add 50 ml 20X PBS to 950 ml dH2O, mix.
  2. Incubation Buffer: Dissolve 0.5 g Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) (#9998) in 100 ml 1X PBS. Store at 4°C.

B. Immunostaining

  1. Count cells using a hemacytometer or alternative method.
  2. Aliquot 0.5-1x106 cells into each assay tube (by volume).
  3. Add 2-3 ml Incubation Buffer to each tube and rinse by centrifugation. Repeat.
  4. Resuspend cells in 100 µl of diluted primary antibody (prepared in incubation buffer at the recommended dilution).
  5. Incubate for 1 hr at room temperature.
  6. Wash by centrifugation in 2-3 ml incubation buffer.
  7. Resuspend cells in the appropriate volume of PBS and analyze on flow cytometer.

CD20 (2H7) Mouse mAb (PE Conjugate) recognizes endogenous levels of total CD20 protein. This antibody detects an epitope within the extracellular domain.

Species Reactivity:

Human

This monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant via affinity chromatography. The purified antibody was conjugated under optimal conditions, with unreacted dye removed from the preparation.

This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to PE and tested in-house for direct flow cytometric analysis in human cells.

B-lymphocyte antigen CD20 (also known as MS4A1; Membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A member 1) is a cell surface phosphoprotein involved in the regulation of B cell activation and proliferation (1,2). It is commonly used as a marker to identify B cells and is expressed throughout B cell development, up until their differentiation into plasma cells. CD20 has no known ligand, and its expression and function are largely conserved between human and mouse (1-3). Evidence suggests that CD20 is necessary for store operated calcium (SOC) entry, which leads to elevated cytoplasmic calcium levels required for B cell activation (4-5). Anti-CD20 antibody immunotherapy depletes B cells by activation of the innate monocytic network and is a common treatment for B cell lymphomas, leukemias, and autoimmune diseases (6).

The 2H7 antibody is widely used to identify both normal and malignant B cells (7).
