DescriptionDescription: This CXNFT monoclonal antibody reacts to mouse NOS2 (inducible NOS, iNOS). Nitric oxide synthase enzymes catalyze the formation of nitric oxide from L-arginine through an NADPH- and oxygen-dependent mechanism. There are three isoforms of NOS that are encoded by three separate genes. NOS1 (neuronal NOS, nNOS) and NOS3 (endothelial NOS, eNOS) are constitutively expressed, while NOS2 is induced in response to bacterial endotoxins and inflammatory cytokines such as IFN gamma and TNF alpha. NOS2 is expressed by myeloid-derived suppressor cells and M1 macrophages but not alternatively activated M2 macrophages. NOS enzymes are functionally active only when they form homodimers, and dimerization of NOS2 occurs at steady-state concentrations of free Ca2+ such that NOS2 is functionally active when it is produced.Applications Reported: This CXNFT antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis.Applications Tested: This CXNFT antibody has been tested by intracellular staining and flow cytometric analysis of LPS-stimulated mouse thioglycolate-elicited peritoneal exudate cells using the Intracellular Fixation and Permeabilization Buffer Set (cat. 88-8824) and protocol. Please refer to Best Protocols: Protocol A: Two step protocol for (cytoplasmic) intracellular proteins located under the Resources Tab online. The Foxp3/Transcription Factor Staining Buffer Set (cat. 00-5523) may also be used with similar results. 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.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.
