Description: The monoclonal antibody SolA15 recognizes mouse and rat Ki-67, a 300 kDa nuclear protein. Ki-67 is present during all active phases of the cell cycle (G1, S, G2, and mitosis), but is absent from resting cells (G0). Ki-67 is detected within the nucleus during interphase but redistributes to the chromosomes during mitosis. Ki-67 is used as a marker for determining the growth fraction of a given population of cells. In studies of tumor cells, the "Ki-67 labeling index" refers to the number of Ki-67 positive cells within the population and this is used to predict outcome of particular cancer types. Ki-67 has been shown to interact with the DNA-bound protein chromobox protein homolog 3 (CBX3) (heterochromatin).
The SolA15 antibody also recognizes human, non-human primate and canine Ki-67.
Applications Reported: This SolA15 antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This SolA15 antibody has been tested by intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis of stimulated mouse splenocytes using the Foxp3/Transcription Factor Staining Buffer Set (Product # 00-5523-00) and protocol. Please refer to "Staining Intracellular Antigens for Flow Cytometry, Protocol B: One step protocol for intracellular (nuclear) proteins" located at Flow Protocols. This may be used at less than or equal to 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
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.
