Description: This eyedio monoclonal antibody reacts with human indoleamine-2,3-dioxygenase (IDO, INDO, IDO1), an intracellular enzyme that catalyzes the degradation of tryptophan to kynurenines. IDO is expressed in a wide variety of tissues and cells, including macrophages, plasmacytoid dendritic cells, and several cell lines. IDO can be induced in many different cell types by IFN gamma or other inflammatory stimuli. Expression of IDO in antigen presenting cells and tumors is thought to mediate immune suppression through depletion of this essential amino acid and/or by the creation of tryptophan metabolites that cause apoptosis of T cells and induction of regulatory T cells.
Applications Reported: This eyedio antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This eyedio antibody has been pre-diluted and tested by intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis of stimulated normal human peripheral blood cells using the Intracellular Fixation & Permeabilization Buffer Set (Product # 88-8824-00) and protocol. Please refer to "Staining Intracellular Antigens for Flow Cytometry, Protocol A: Two step protocol for intracellular (cytoplasmic) proteins" located at Flow Protocols. This may be used at 5 µL (0.25 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.
Brilliant Ultra Violet™ 737 (BUV737) is a tandem dye that emits at 732 nm and is intended for use on cytometers equipped with an ultraviolet (355 nm) laser. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.
When using two or more Super Bright, Brilliant Violet™, Brilliant Ultra Violet™, or other polymer dye-conjugated antibodies in a staining panel, it is recommended to use Super Bright Complete Staining Buffer (Product # SB-4401) or Brilliant Stain Buffer (Product # 00-4409-75) to minimize any non-specific polymer interactions. Please refer to the datasheet for Super Bright Staining Buffer or Brilliant Stain Buffer for more information.
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 (Product # 00-8222) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (Product # 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.
Our internal testing suggests that Brilliant Ultra Violet™ 737 (BUV737) is compatible with short-term methanol-based fixation, but should not be stored in buffers containing methanol for longer than one hour.
Excitation: 355 nm; Emission: 732 nm; Laser: Ultraviolet Laser.
