Highly purified BALB/c mouse Neutrophils
The Ly-6G/-6C locus encodes a family of Ly-6 proteins including Ly-6G and Ly-6C. Ly-6 antigens have a molecular weight between 15,000 and 18,000. Ly6G is together with Ly6c a component of the myeloid differentiation antigen Gr-1. Ly6G a GPI-anchored protein and is a good marker of peripheral neutrophils. Although predominantly presents on neutrophils, it is also expressed on a subset of eosinophils, differentiating premonocytes and plasmacytoid dendritic cells. Ly6C is a monocyte/macrophage and endothelial cell differentiation antigen regulated by interferon gamma, and may play a role in the development and maturation of lymphocytes. It is expressed on bone marrow cells, monocytes/macrophages, neutrophils, endothelial cells, and T cell subsets. Expression of Gr-1 in bone marrow correlates with granulocyte differentiation and maturation. However, the physiological role of Ly6G alone remains still unclear. The monoclonal antibody NIMP-R14 has been successfully used to stain polymorphonuclear (PMN) cells and monocytes for fluorescent activated cell sorting and in frozen and paraffin sections. Treatment with antibodies in vivo leads to neutropenia and has inhibitory effect on local immune responses. Furthermore, it has been shown to be useful for depletion of neutrophils in mice. It depletes neutrophils as soon as 6 hours after injection and up to 6 days.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab2557 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|ICC||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|Functional Studies||Use at an assay dependent concentration. Neutrophil depletion. Mice were treated with NIMP-R14 given intraperitoneally at a dose of 1 mg, 6 hours before infection.|
|IHC-P||Use at an assay dependent concentration.
This antibody has been reported to work well without antigen retrieval, or with retrieval in a 125 degree C decloaking chamber for 3 minutes with pH 6.5 buffer. HIER optimization may be required.
|Flow Cyt||Use at an assay dependent concentration.
5 x 105 cells were incubated with 10 µg/ml antibody.
|IHC-Fr||Use at an assay dependent concentration. Tested with acetone-fixed tissue.|

ab2557 staining Neutrophil in Mouse lung tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formalin and blocked with 2.5% serum for 30 minutes at 25°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in 10mM sodium citrate. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/200 in 1x PBS/1% BSA/0.3% Triton X-100 buffer) for 1 hour at 25°C. A HRP-conjugated Goat anti-rat Ig polyclonal (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody.
