C57BL/6 splenocytes were left unstimulated or stimulated for 5 hours with phorbol myristate acetate (PMA) and ionomycin in the presence of brefeldin A. Cells were then surface-stained with anti-mouse CD4 FITC (Cat. No. MCD0401) and subsequently fixed and permeabilized using the FIX and PERM® Cell Permeabilization Kit (Cat. nos. GAS003 or GAS004) and stained intracellularly with anti-mouse interferon gamma (IFN-gamma) PE-Cy®7 conjugate (Cat. no. A18713) and anti-mouse tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-a) Pacific Blue™ conjugate (Cat. no. RM90128). Samples were collected using the Attune® Acoustic Focusing Cytometer (blue/violet) with 488 nm excitation and 530/30 nm bandpass emission filter to detect FITC, and 640 nm longpass filter to detect PE-Cy®7 conjugate. 405 nm excitation and 450/40 nm bandpass emission filter were used to detect the Pacific Blue™ fluorescence. PANEL A: IFN-gamma and TNF-a co-staining of total mouse splenocytes that were left unstimulated (left panel) or stimulated (right panel) with PMA and ionomycin in the presence of brefeldin A. PANEL B: CD4 T cell expression of TNF-a (left panel) and IFN-gamma (right panel) after stimulation with the above stated conditions.

This gene encodes a multifunctional proinflammatory cytokine that belongs to the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) superfamily. This cytokine is mainly secreted by macrophages. It can bind to, and thus functions through its receptors TNFRSF1A/TNFR1 and TNFRSF1B/TNFBR. This cytokine is involved in the regulation of a wide spectrum of biological processes including cell proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, lipid metabolism, and coagulation. This cytokine has been implicated in a variety of diseases, including autoimmune diseases, insulin resistance, and cancer. Knockout studies in mice also suggested the neuroprotective function of this cytokine.
