Data Example

Intracellular Staining by Flow Cytometry Detection of IL-21 antibody in Activated Mouse Splenocytes antibody by Flow Cytometry. View Larger

Detection of IL‑21 in Activated Mouse Splenocytes by Flow Cytometry. Mouse splenocytes were untreated (light orange filled histogram) or activated for 24 hours with 50 ng/mL PMA and 500 ng/mL Ca2+ionomycin (dark orange filled histogram) then stained with Mouse IL-21 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB594) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB0061, open histogram), followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG F(ab')2Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0113). To facilitate intracellular staining, cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with saponin.

Background: IL-21

Interleukin-21 (IL-21) and its receptor appear to play important roles in the regulation of the immune system. IL-21 is most related to IL-2, IL-4, and IL-15. IL-21 R, also called NILR (novel interleukin receptor), is a type I cytokine receptor with 4 conserved cysteine residues and an extracellular WSXWS motif. It is most closely related to IL-2 R beta and IL-4 R alpha. Mouse IL-21 is a 146 amino acid (aa) residue protein with a 24 aa signal peptide. Mouse and human IL-21 share 57% aa identity. IL‑21 is expressed by activated T cells. Although not fully elucidated, the IL-2 R gamma ( gamma c) chain appears to play a role in IL-21 R signaling. The IL-21/IL-21 R interaction appear to play important roles in B and T cell proliferation after antigen stimulation and NK cell maturation.
