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's lymphoma, and non-Hodgkin'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 intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis of splenocytes isolated from sheep red blood cell-immunized mice using the Foxp3/Transcription Factor Staining Buffer Set (cat. 00-5523) and protocol. Please refer to Best Protocols: Protocol B: One step protocol for (nuclear) intracellular proteins located under the Resources Tab online. This can be used at less than or equal to 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 660 nm; Laser: Red 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'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's lymphomas and in nodular, lymphocyte predominant Hodgkin's disease.
