Detection of BST-2/Tetherin in Mouse Bone Marrow Cells by Flow Cytometry.
Mouse bone marrow cells were stained with Rat Anti-Mouse B220/CD45R APC‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB1217A) and either (A) Rat Anti-Mouse
BST-2/Tetherin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8660) or (B) Rat IgG2A Isotype Control (Catalog # MAB006) followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0105B).
BST-2/Tetherin in Mouse Splenocytes. BST-2/Tetherin was detected in immersion fixed mouse splenocytes using Rat Anti-Mouse BST-2/Tetherin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8660) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cell surfaces and cytoplasm. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Non-adherent Cells.

BST-2, also known as Tetherin or PDCA1 and designated CD317, is a 30-35 kDa interferon-inducible protein that shows an unusual topology. The N-terminus is cytoplasmic, followed by a transmembrane segment, an extracellular loop, and a C-terminal GPI-linkage. BST-2 is expressed on bone marrow stromal cells and is upregulated in breast cancer and astrocytoma. It binds to ILT7 on plasmacytoid dendritic cells and inhibits proinflammatory TLR7 and TLR9 signaling. BST-2 inhibits the release of Kaposi sarcoma virus, HIV-1, and Lassa virus from infected cells, but this function is counteracted by viral proteins which directly bind and trigger the degradation of BST-2.
