259D_110105
Cell extract from HEK293T cells transfected with human FoxP3 cDNA was resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to nitrocellulose, and probed with monoclonal anti-FoxP3 antibody (clone 259D). Proteins were visualized using a goat anti-mouse secondary conjugated to HRP and a chemiluminescence detection system.

    Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded Cynomolgus kidney was treated with EDTA pH 8.0 using a high pressure cooker prior to staining. Staining was carried out with monoclonal anti-FoxP3 (clone 259D) at 10 µg/ml followed by biotinylated goat anti-mouse and streptavidin HRP. Staining was visualized with DAB substrate and the tissue counterstained with hematoxylin.

Description

FOXP3 is a 50-55 kD transcription factor, also known as Forkhead box protein P3, Scurfin, JM2, or IPEX. It is proposed to be a master regulatory gene and more specific marker of T regulatory cells than most cell surface markers (such as CD4 and CD25). Transduced expression of FOXP3 in CD4+/CD25- cells has been shown to induce GITR, CD103, and CTLA4 and impart a T regulatory cell phenotype. FOXP3 is mutated in X-linked autoimmunity-allergic dysregulation syndrome (XLAAD or IPEX) in humans and in "scurfy" mice. Overexpression of FOXP3 has been shown to lead to a hypoactive immune state suggesting that this transcriptional factor is a central regulator of T cell activity. In human, unlike in mouse, two isoforms of FOXP3 have been reported: one (FOXP3) corresponding to the canonical full-length sequence; the other (FOXP3 δ2) lacking exon 2. The 259D antibody recognizes human FOXP3 epitope in the region of amino acids 105-235.

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent intracellular staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤ 0.5 µg per 106 cells in 100 µl volume. For Western blotting, the suggested working dilution(s) is ≤ 5.0 µg/ml in antibody dilution buffer. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: Western blotting1, and immunohistochemical staining1 of acetone-fixed frozen sections and formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded sections. The 259D antibody gives strong positivity on paraffin and frozen sections and the antibody stains some epithelial cells. The binding of 206D to FOXP3 can be partially blocked by 259D, but 206D does not show significant blocking effect on 259D binding.

NOTE: For flow cytometric staining with this clone, True-Nuclear™ Transcription Factor Buffer Set (Cat. No. 424401) offers improved staining and is highly recommended.

Related FAQs

Can FOXP3 be costained with cytokines?

The larger holes created by the nuclear permeabilization required for FOXP3 may allow cytokines to leak out of the cell, making it harder to detect lowly-expressed cytokines. You may have to use a control where the cells are only permeabilized through the cell membrane.

Can I stain whole blood with anti-FOXP3 using your Foxp3 staining kit?

It is not recommended. It is best to use PBMCs for this testing.
