Mouse thymocytes were stained with Anti-Mouse CD4, Anti-Mouse CD8 and Anti-Mouse CD25, then fixed and permeabilized with Foxp3 Staining Buffer and stained intracellularly for Anti-Mouse Foxp3 and Anti-Mouse c-Rel PE. Anti-Mouse cRel PE staining (right) was compared in CD8+CD4. (left, green), CD4+CD8+ (left, blue), CD4+CD8-CD25-Foxp3. (center, orange), and CD4+CD8-CD25+Foxp3+ (center, pink) populations.

Description: The 1RELAH5 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse c-Rel. c-Rel is a 65 kDa hematopoietic lineage-restricted member of the NF-kB family of transcription factors. In the thymus, c-Rel is upregulated in regulatory T cells (Treg) when compared to other CD4+ thymocytes. c-Rel is believed to play a critical role in thymic Treg (nTreg) development, but is not necessary for TGF beta-mediated T reg (iTreg) differentiation. C-Rel is also involved in proliferation and survival in mature T cells.
Applications Reported: This 1RELAH5 antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This 1RELAH5 antibody has been tested by intracellular staining and flow cytometric analysis of mouse thymocytes using the Foxp3 Fixation/Permeabilization Buffers (cat. 00-5521) and protocol. This 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.

The REL gene encodes c-Rel, a transcription factor that is a member of the Rel/NFKB family, which also includes RELA, RELB (604758), NFKB1, and NFKB2. These proteins are related through a highly conserved N-terminal region termed the 'Rel domain,' which is responsible for DNA binding, dimerization, nuclear localization, and binding to the NFKB inhibitor (Belguise and Sonenshein, 2007).
