IL-17AF Rat anti-Mouse, PE, Clone: B8KN8R, eBioscience
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Invitrogen 12917180
Description: The B8KN8R monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse interleukin (IL)-17AF heterodimer. This antibody specifically reacts with this heterodimer and has no reactivity for IL-17A or IL-17F homodimers. IL-17A and IL-17F are well-characterized homodimeric cytokines secreted by T helper 17 (Th17) cells, gamma-delta T cells and several subsets of innate lymphoid cells. Somewhat less appreciated, IL-17A and IL-17F subunits can also form the heterodimer, IL-17AF. Together, these three dimers signal through the IL-17RA/IL-17RC receptor complex to mediate immune responses at mucosal interfaces and are found at lesion sites in inflammatory bowel disease, asthma, atopic dermatitis and rheumatoid arthritis. Applications Reported: This B8KN8R antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This B8KN8R antibody has been tested by intracellular staining and flow cytometric analysis of Th17-polarized mouse splenocytes, using the Intracellular Fixation & Permeabilization Buffer Set (cat. 88-8824) and protocol. Please refer to Best Protocls: Protocol A: Two step protocol for (cytoplasmic) intracellular proteins located under the Resource Tab online. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.25 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. Excitation: 488-561 nm; Emission: 578 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered. Killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIRs) are transmembrane glycoproteins expressed by natural killer cells and subsets of T cells. The KIR genes are polymorphic and highly homologous and they are found in a cluster on chromosome 19q13.4 within the 1 Mb leukocyte receptor complex (LRC). The gene content of the KIR gene cluster varies among haplotypes, although several ""framework"" genes are found in all haplotypes. The KIR proteins are classified by the number of extracellular immunoglobulin domains (2D or 3D) and by whether they have a long (L) or short (S) cytoplasmic domain. KIR proteins with the long cytoplasmic domain transduce inhibitory signals upon ligand binding via an immune tyrosine-based inhibitory motif (ITIM), while KIR proteins with the short cytoplasmic domain lack the ITIM motif and instead associate with the TYRO protein tyrosine kinase binding protein to transduce activating signals. The ligands for several KIR proteins are subsets of HLA class I molecules; thus, KIR proteins are thought to play an important role in regulation of the immune response.
