Description: The monoclonal antibody BCL-UP recognizes Bcl-6, also known as B-cell lymphoma 6,which is a member of the POZ family of transcriptional repressors. Bcl-6 is expressed most abundantly in germinal center B cells, as well as in differentiating and activated B cells. This 79 kDa protein is essential for germinal center B cell proliferation and survival. During B cell development, Bcl-6 plays an important role in promoting pre-B cell survival to enable the generation of a diverse B cell repertoire. Moreover, Bcl-6 is expressed constitutively in diffuse large B cell lymphomas (DLBCLs), Burkitt ft.s lymphoma, and non-Hodgkin ft.s lymphoma. Reports also suggest expression of Bcl-6 in CD4+ T follicular helper cells and memory T cells. Bcl-6 has been reported to be antagonized by Blimp-1. Applications Reported: This BCL-UP antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This BCL-UP antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by intracellular flow cytometric analysis of human tonsil cells using the Foxp3 Fixation/Permabilization Buffers (cat. 00-5521) and protocol. Please see Best Protocols Section (Staining intracellular Antigens for Flow Cytometry) for staining protocol (refer to Protocol B: One-step protocol for intracellular (nuclear) proteins). This can be used at 5 µL (0.03 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 can be used in place of PE-Cy5, PE-Cy5.5 or PerCP-Cy5.5. PerCP-eFluor® 710 emits at 710 nm and is excited with the blue laser (488 nm). Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome. For a filter configuration, we recommend using the 685 LP dichroic mirror and 710/40 band pass filter, however the 695/40 band pass filter is an acceptable alternative. Our testing indicates that PerCP-eFluor® 710 conjugated antibodies are stable when stained samples are exposed to freshly prepared 2% formaldehyde overnight at 4°C, but please evaluate for alternative fixation protocols. Excitation: 488 nm; Emission: 710 nm; Laser: Blue Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered. Bcl-6 proto-oncogene product (a Kruppel-type zinc-finger protein) is mainly expressed in normal germinal center B cells and related lymphomas. Bcl-6 is involved in chromosome rearrangements at 3q27 in non-Hodgkin ft.s lymphomas and Bcl-6 rearrangements have been detected in 33%-45% of diffuse large B cell lymphomas. Bcl-6 has been detected immunohistochemically in follicular lymphomas, diffuse large B cell lymphomas, Burkitt ft.s lymphomas and in nodular, lymphocyte predomit Hodgkin ft.s disease.
