A. Solutions and Reagents

NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water.

  1. 20X Phosphate Buffered Saline (PBS): (#9808) To prepare 1 L 1X PBS: add 50 ml 20X PBS to 950 ml dH2O, mix.
  2. Incubation Buffer: Dissolve 0.5 g Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) (#9998) in 100 ml 1X PBS. Store at 4°C.

B. Immunostaining

  1. Count cells using a hemacytometer or alternative method.
  2. Aliquot 0.5-1x106 cells into each assay tube (by volume).
  3. Add 2-3 ml Incubation Buffer to each tube and rinse by centrifugation. Repeat.
  4. Resuspend cells in 100 µl of diluted primary antibody (prepared in incubation buffer at the recommended dilution).
  5. Incubate for 1 hr at room temperature.
  6. Wash by centrifugation in 2-3 ml incubation buffer.
  7. Resuspend cells in the appropriate volume of PBS and analyze on flow cytometer.

CD86/B7-2 (GL-1) Rat mAb (APC Conjugate) recognizes endogenous levels of total CD86/B7-2 protein. This antibody detects an epitope within the extracellular domain.

Species Reactivity:


This monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant via affinity chromatography. The purified antibody was conjugated under optimal conditions, with unreacted dye removed from the preparation.

This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to APC and tested in-house for direct flow cytometric analysis in mouse cells.

CD80 (B7-1, BB1) and CD86 (B7-2, B70) are members of the B7 family of cell surface ligands that regulate T cell activation and immune responses. CD80 is expressed on activated antigen presenting cells, including dendritic cells, B cells, monocytes, and macrophages. CD86 is expressed on resting monocytes, dendritic cells, activated B lymphocytes, and can be further upregulated in the presence of inflammation (1-3). CD80 and CD86 are ligands for CD28, which functions as a T cell costimulatory receptor. Interaction of CD28 with CD80 or CD86 provides the second signal required for naïve T cell activation, T cell proliferation, and acquisition of effector functions (3-7). Alternatively, CD80 and CD86 also act as ligands to CTLA-4, which results in the downregulation of T cell activity (3,7-9).

The GL-1 antibody is used as a marker for CD86 expression on B cells, macrophages, and dendritic cells.
