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

Endothelial cell differentiation gene-2 (EDG2) receptor is a high affinity receptor for lysophosphatidic acid (LPA). EDG2 (LPA1), also known as lysophospholipid receptor A1, Vzg-1, mrec1.3 or GPCR26, like all other EDG receptors, couple multiple (3 or more) types of G proteins and transduce decreases in c[AMP]i through Gi and increases in [Ca2+]i by augmenting phospholipase C through Gq/11 and beta/gamma dimers and by induction of PI3 kinase, p125 FAK, phospholipase D by activating rho through G12/13. Human EDG-2 is present in high levels on oligodendrocytes and certain human malignant T cell lines. EDG2 (LPA1) receptors (with EDG4) may play a role in protecting cardiomyocytes from apoptosis induced by hypoxia and andrenergic stimulation.
