Product Highlight

FIX&PERM Cell Fixation and Permeabilization Kit

Flow cytometric analyses with monoclonal antibodies were so far mainly restricted to cell surface molecules. Intracellular structures such as cytoplasmic or nuclear enzymes, oncoproteins, cytokines, immunoglobulins etc. were largely excluded from such studies. Also excluded from flow cytometric studies were cytoplasmic localizations of well-established membrane molecules like CD3 and CD22, which, in their cytoplasmic form, are the most reliable lineage markers in undifferentiated leukemia. With the FIX&PERM® Kit flow cytometric analysis of intracellular antigens has become as easy as surface antigen studies. The only prerequisite is the availability of suitable antibody conjugates. Most of the available monoclonal antibody conjugates can be used with the FIX&PERM® Kit, some determinants are sensitive, however, to the fixation step involved. This and the optimal fixation time have to be tested for each reagent.

Background

A431 cells are a positive control for EGFR as they express high levels of EGFR. They also used for cell cycle studies and can be stimulated with EGF to stimulate EGFR and are therefore a very useful model to study EGFR downstream signalling cascades eg shc, src, MAPK.

Formulation

Provided as solution in Laemmli electrophoresis sample buffer. Samples need to be boiled for 3-5 minutes, before loading the gel.

Customer Storage

Product should be stored at -20°C. Aliquot to avoid freeze/thaw cycles
