DescriptionDescription: The C398.4A monoclonal antibody reacts with ICOS (Inducible Costimulatory molecule), also known as H4/CRP-1/AILIM, and cross-reacts with mouse and rat ICOS. ICOS is a T cell specific activation molecule and a third member of the CD28/CTLA-4 family. A dimer of 47-57 kDa, ICOS is expressed on activated T cells, has potent costimulatory activity for T cell activation and proliferation and is required for humoral immune response. ICOS binds to its ligand on activated APC including B cells called B7h/B7RP-1, is thought to play a protective role in inflammatory autoimmune diseases and be involved in the development of Th2 cells. C398.4A is reported to display strong costimulation of proliferation of T cell clones, intermediate costimulation on activated T cells, and weak costimulation on fresh resting T cells. It is a good costimulator of IL-10 production especially from pre-activated cells that express high level of H4/ICOS. The epitope recognized by C398.4A is different from that bound by the ICOSL (i.e., C398.4A does not block binding of ICOSL).Applications Reported: The C398.4A antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.Applications Tested: This C398.4A antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of Con A-stimulated mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.06 μg per test. A test is defined as the amount (μg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 μL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive photo-induced oxidation. Please protect this vial and stained samples from light. Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (cat. 00-8222) (100 μL cell sample + 100 μL IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (cat. 00-5333) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically.Excitation: 488-561 nm; Emission: 667 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
