Description: This BCL-DWN monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse Bcl-6, which is also known as B-cell lymphoma 6. 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. Moreover, 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-DWN antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This BCL-DWN antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of splenocytes isolated from sheep red blood cell-immunized mice. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.015 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. PerCP-eFluor® 710 emits at 710 nm and is excited with the blue laser (488 nm); it can be used in place of PerCP-Cyanine5.5. We recommend using a 710/50 bandpass filter, however, the 695/40 bandpass filter is an acceptable alternative. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome. Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive to photo-induced oxidation. Please protect this vial and stained samples from light. Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (cat. 00-8222) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (cat. 00-5333) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically. 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.
