    • Bovine Dendritic cell growth kit (PBP014KZZ) contains a cocktail of biologically active interleukin-4 (IL-4) and granulocyte/macrophage-colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) that have been premixed at optimal concentrations to induce dendritic cell development from peripheral blood-derived bovine (cattle) monocytes.

It is recommended that the user titrates the reagent for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
    • Technical Advice
    • Recommended Protocol
      1. Prepare peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from heparinised blood by density gradient centrifugation.

      2. Purify CD14+ve cells by labelling PBMC with CD14 mAb and utilise magnetic bead or flow cytometric separation techniques.

      3. Resuspend the isolated CD14+ve cells at a concentration of 1x106 cells/ml in tissue culture medium (TCM = RPMI or equivalent + 10% foetal calf serum) containing a final dilution of 1:20 of PBP014KZZ .

      4. Add 3ml of cell suspension to each well of a 6 well tissue culture plate.

      5. Culture cells in a humidified atmosphere of 5% CO2 in air, at approximately 37oC.

      6. Culture cells for 3 days. The cells may then be harvested and used for other procedures including immunophenotyping (as required).

      7. If a longer culture period is required the cells must be ‘fed’ with new TCM containing cytokines on day 3:
      Carefully remove 1ml spent medium from each well, care is required to avoid disturbing the cells.
      Add 1.5ml fresh, pre-warmed TCM containing cytokines at 1:20 to each well and re-culture the DC for required culture period (typically up to 7 days).

      8. At the end of the culture period adherent and non-adherent cells can be pooled for use in immunoassays and phenotyped (as required). Adherent cells may require a dissociation step to remove them from the plate.
