Product Description

This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to PerCP-Cy5.5® under optimal conditions and tested in-house for direct flow cytometric analysis in mouse cells.

Product Usage Information

Note: This control antibody must be diluted to the same concentration (not dilution) as the specific antibody in analysis. See Directions for Use.

Directions for Use: Important: Dilute this control antibody to the same concentration (not dilution) as specific antibody in analysis. Higher background fluorescence may result if excessive amounts of rat IgG isotype control are used.

Storage:

Supplied in 10 mM NaH2PO4, 150 mM NaCl, 0.09% NaN3, 0.1% gelatin, pH7.2. This product is stable for 6 months when stored at 4ºC. Do not aliquot the antibody. Protect from light. Do not freeze.

Flow Cytometry

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.

Protocol Id: 1504

Specificity / Sensitivity

The antibody is not directed against any known antigen. It functions as an isotype control for rat monoclonal antibodies.

Background

Isotype control antibodies are used to estimate the nonspecific binding of target primary antibodies due to Fc receptor binding or other protein-protein interactions. An isotype control antibody should have the same immunoglobulin type and be used at the same concentration as the test antibody.
