DescriptionDescription: The monoclonal antibody TWAJ recognizes mouse and human Gata-3, a member of the Gata family of transcription factors. Gata-3 is a T cell-specific transcription factor important for thymic development and Th2 differentiation. Expression during embryonic development is found in the central nervous system, skin, mammary glands and kidney. During development, the expression of Gata-3 is essential as homozygous knock-out of Gata-3 is embryonic lethal. The Gata-3 is also essential for T cell commitment and survival. In the thymus, expression is found mainly on the CD4 single positive cells. During Th2 differentiation, Gata-3 binds to the IL-4 promoter as well as represses the expression of T-bet, thus inhibiting Th1 differentiation.Alternative splice variants have been reported especially in the MCF7 cell line. The TWAJ Human/Mouse Gata-3 antibody will recognize both forms (50 and 45 kDa) of the protein.Staining with the TWAJ Human/Mouse Gata-3 antibody requires the use of the Foxp3/Transcription Factor Staining Buffer Set.(cat 00-5523)Crossreactivity in rhesus monkeys has been published.Applications Reported: This TWAJ antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis.Applications Tested: This TWAJ antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by intracellular staining and flow cytometric analysis of mouse thymocytes using the Foxp3/Transcription Factor Staining Buffer Set (cat. 00-5523) and protocol. Please refer to Best Protocols: Protocol B: One step protocol for (nuclear) intracellular proteins located under the Resources Tab online. This can be used at 5 μL (0.03 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. PE-eFluor® 610 can be excited with laser lines from 488-561 nm and emits at 607 nm. We recommend using a 610/20 band pass filter (equivalent to PE-Texas Red®). Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochome.Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive to 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 of cell sample + 100 μL of 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: 607 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
