Anti-mPDCA-1 MicroBeads, mouse

Anti-mPDCA-1 MicroBeads have been developed for the enrichment of mouse plasmacytoid dendritic cells (PDCs) from lymphoid tissues.

Background information

The mouse plasmacytoid dendritic cell antigen-1 (mPDCA-1) is specifically expressed on mouse PDCs, a subset of CD11c

dendritic cells detected at low frequency in all lymphoid tissues, peripheral blood, and some non-lymphoid tissues. In mouse spleen, bone marrow, and lymph nodes, mPDCA-1 is exclusively expressed on cells which are CD11c

Downstream applications

The isolated PDCs are suitable for studies on their functional properties, e.g. antigen uptake and presentation, crosspriming of cytotoxic T cells, T cell activation or tolerance induction, or T helper cell polarization by PDCs in experimental mouse models of infection and autoimmunity.
Highly pure PDCs were isolated with Anti-mPDCA-1 MicroBeads and have been further analyzed for IDO-dependent tolerance-induction.

Anti-mPDCA-1 MicroBeads have also been used to isolate PDCs for subsequent analysis of EBV-induced gene 3 (EBI3) expression and regulation in mouse DC subsets.
