Description: This WD1928 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 WD1928 antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This WD1928 antibody has been pre-diluted and tested by intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells using the Foxp3/Transcription Factor Staining Buffer Set (Product # 00-5523-00) and protocol. Please refer to "Staining Intracellular Antigens for Flow Cytometry, Protocol B: One step protocol for intracellular (nuclear) proteins" located at Flow Protocols. This may be used at 5 µL (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.
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 (Product # 00-8222-49) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (Product # 00-5333-57) 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: 488-561 nm; Emission: 695 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser.
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.
