    • Cell Stimulation Reagent (with Brefeldin A) 500x is a mixture of PMA (phorbol-12-myristate-13-acetate), ionomycin and the protein transport inhibitor Brefeldin A. PMA and ionomycin activate cells and increase cytokine production. Brefeldin A allows for these cytokines to accumulate in the rough endoplasmic reticulum and golgi apparatus allowing for their detection by intracellular fluorescent staining.

    • Instructions For Use
      1. Resuspend 1 x106 - 2 x106 cells per ml in cell culture media
      2. Thaw the Cell Stimulation Reagent (with Brefeldin A) 500x (BUF077A) in a 37oC water bath
      3. To each ml of cell suspension add 2 μl of BUF077A and incubate cells in a CO2, 37oC incubator for 6 hours
      4. Harvest cells and centrifuge at 300-400 g for 5 minutes. Discard supernatant
      5. To wash the pellet, add 10-20 ml of Cell Staining Buffer (BUF073), vortex to resuspend the pellet then centrifuge at 300-400 g for 5 minutes. Discard supernatant and repeat step 5 for a second time
      6. Stain for surface markers or proteins of interest and analyze cells by flow cytometry

      Note: Aliquot product to avoid repeat freeze-thawing. Time and culture conditions may need to be optimized.
      Activation of cells for >12 hours with Brefeldin A may affect cell viability. In these circumstances it is recommended to use Cell Stimulation Reagent (without Brefeldin A) 500x (BUF076A) and then add Brefeldin A Solution 1000x (BUF075) or Monensin Solution (BUF074).
