Description: This Dan11mag antibody recognizes Eomesodermin (Eomes), also known as T-box brain 2 (TBR2). Eomes is a T-box transcription factor that is highly homologous to T-bet, which is essential during trophoblast development and gastrulation in most vertebrates. In the immune system, Eomes controls the differentiation of effector and memory CD8+ T cells, as well as natural killer (NK) cells. Expression of Eomes in these cells correlates with high expression of CD122, the common beta-chain of the IL-2R and IL-15R.
Applications Reported: This Dan11mag antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This Dan11mag antibody has been tested by intracellular staining and flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenpcytes using the Foxp3/Transcription Factor Staining Buffer Set (cat. 00-5523) 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 antibody can be used at less than or equal to 0.125 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 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.
TBR2 is a member of a conserved protein family that shares a common DNA-binding domain, the T-box. T-box genes encode transcription factors involved in the regulation of developmental processes. A similiar protein disrupted in mice is shown to be essential during trophoblast development and gastrulation. TBR2 plays a role in brain development and is required for the specification and the proliferation of the intermediate progenitor cells and their progeny in the cerebral cortex.
