DescriptionThe FJK-16s antibody reacts with mouse, rat, dog, porcine, bovine and cat Foxp3 also known as FORKHEAD BOX P3, SCURFIN, and JM2; cross reactivity of this antibody to other proteins has not been determined. Foxp3, a 49-55kDa protein, is a member of the forkhead/winged-helix family of transcriptional regulators, and was identified as the gene defective in ‘scurfy’ (sf) mice. Constitutive high expression of foxP3 mRNA has been shown in CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells (Treg cells), and ectopic expression of foxp3 in CD4+CD25- cells imparts a Treg phenotype in these cells.
Immunoblotting with FJK-16s antibody has mapped the epitope to amino acids 75-125 of the mouse Foxp3 protein. In the human, this region has been shown to be alternatively spliced at the mRNA level. Both the alternatively-spliced and non-spliced isoforms are present in the CD4+CD25+ subset of lymphocytes. Preliminary RT-PCR experiments have not revealed this alternatively-spliced isoform in mouse splenocytes, suggesting different gene regulation in the mouse and human.
Intracellular staining of mouse splenocytes with FJK-16s using the PE anti-mouse/rat Foxp3 Staining Set and protocol reveals approximately 2% of total cells in the C57Bl/6 strain and approximately 3-5% in the BALB/c mouse strain. Multicolor flow cytometric analysis demonstrates approximately 90% of the CD4+CD25+ cells and 4% of the CD4+CD25- cells staining with FJK-16s. B220+, CD11b+, CD11c+, and Ly6G/Gr-1+ cells do not show significant co-staining with FJK-16s.
Please see our FAQ regarding the usage of eBioscience Foxp3 reagents.
FJK-16s cross-reacts with rat, bovine, porcine and canine Foxp3. This has been demonstrated by intracellular staining of Foxp3 and flow cytometry of rat splenocytes using the same method and reagents as used for mouse tissue. Please note that FJK-16s has been optimized for use with the mouse Foxp3 Staining Set (cat. 72-5775 or 71-5775 or 77-5775). The use of other fixation and staining buffers is not recommended.
