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

The CD3 epitope is expressed on the epsilon chain of the CD3/T cell antigen receptor (TcR) complex. CD3 is present on 65-85% of thymocytes and has a mitogenic effect on peripheral blood T cells. Identification of human T cells expressing the 22-28,000 M.W. surface antigen.

Immunogen

CD3=Derived from the hybridization of mouse NS-1 myeloma celss with spleen cells from BALB/c mice immunized with human thymocytes.

Formulation

Provided as sterile filtered solution in phosphate buffered saline with 0.08% sodium azide and 0.2% carrier protein

Customer Storage

Product should be stored at 4-8°C. DO NOT FREEZE
