Description: This Mags.21F7 monoclonal antibody reacts with human and mouse promyelocytic leukemia zinc finger (PLZF), a member of the BTB-POZ family of transcription factors. Expression of this transcriptional repressor in immune cells differs between mice and humans. In mice, PLZF is highly expressed in immature CD1d-resricted NKT2 and NKT1 cells, and a subset of gamma delta (Vg1.1+Vd6.3+) T cells. Studies have also demonstrated expression of PLZF in non-invariant CD1d-restricted T cells, as well as non-CD1d-restricted innate T cells. In humans, PLZF is expressed in NK cells, gamma delta T cells, as well as CD4 and CD8+ T cells. PLZF is also expressed in MR1-specific mucosal-associated invariant T cells, as well as in MHC Class II-restricted T cells that develop via a thymocyte-thymocyte interaction in humans. PLZF exists as a homodimer or in complex with PLZP, and has been shown to be involved in the development of NKT cells, NK cell function, cellular quiescence, and growth suppression. Finally, PLZF has been shown to inhibit gene expression induced by retinoic acid receptor.
Applications Reported: This Mags.21F7 antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This Mags.21F7 antibody has been tested by intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis of mouse lymph node cells using the Foxp3/Transcription Factor Staining Buffer Set (cat. 00-5523) and protocol. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.5 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.
This gene is a member of the Krueppel C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family and encodes a zinc finger transcription factor that contains nine Kruppel-type zinc finger domains at the carboxyl terminus. This protein is located in the nucleus, is involved in cell cycle progression, and interacts with a histone deacetylase. Specific instances of aberrant gene rearrangement at this locus have been associated with acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL). Alternate transcriptional splice variants have been characterized.
