Alexa Fluor® 488 Anti-human Perforin Antibody
2140540 100 tests $220.00       
Clone: dG9
Isotype: Mouse IgG2b, κ
Reactivity: Human, Cross-Reactivity: Bovine (Cow, Cattle); does not cross-react with mouse1.
Immunogen: Purified granules from the human lymphoma cell line
Formulation: Phosphate-buffered solution, pH 7.2, containing 0.09% sodium azide and 0.2% (w/v) BSA (origin USA).
Preparation: The antibody was purified by affinity chromatography, and conjugated with Alexa Fluor® 488 under optimal conditions.
Storage & Handling: The antibody solution should be stored undiluted between 2°C and 8°C, and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
Application:

ICFC - Quality tested
IF

Application Notes:

Clone dG9 primarily recognizes perforin associated with cytotoxic granules9. Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: immunoprecipitation, intracellular flow cytometric analysis and immunofluorescence microscopy5,7, and immunohistochemical staining of acetone-fixed frozen tissue sections and formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections1,4.

Recommended Usage:

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by intracellular immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is 5 µl per million cells or 5 µl per 100 µl of whole blood. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

* Alexa Fluor® 488 has a maximum emission of 519 nm when it is excited at 488 nm.

Human peripheral blood lymphocytes intracellularly

Human peripheral blood lymphocytes intracellularly stained with dG9 Alexa Fluor® 488



Description:

Perforin is a 70 kD cytolytic protein that is expressed in the cytoplasmic granules of cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) and natural killer (NK) cells. Perforin is one of the major effector molecules used by cytotoxic T cells and NK cells to mediate targeted cell lysis.

Other Names:
Structure: 70 kD
Distribution: CTL, NK (cytoplasmic granules)
Function: Mediates targeted cell lysis
