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

OGR1 (originally identified as GPR68) is a high-affinity receptor for sphingosylphosphorylcholine (SPC). SPC is a member of a class of bioactive lipids which regulate cellular functions. These functions include cell proliferation and growth inhibition, smooth muscle contration and wound healing. SPC also stimulated signalling pathways that induce tyrosine phosphorylation, activate MAP kinases and protein kinase C, modify ion channel activity and increase intracellular Ca2+ concentration. OGR1 is expressed in placenta, lung, liver, spleen, testis, small intestine and peripheral blood leukocytes. It is not found in thymus, ovary, colon, skeletal muscle, kidney or pancreas.
