Overview

The EasySep™ Mouse Hematopoietic Cell Isolation Kit is designed to isolate stem and progenitor cells from single-cell suspensions of bone marrow or other tissues by negative selection. Unwanted cells are targeted for removal with biotinylated antibodies directed against non-hematopoietic stem cells and non-progenitor cells (CD5, CD11b, CD19, CD45R/B220, Ly6G/C(Gr-1), TER119, 7-4) and streptavidin-coated magnetic particles (RapidSpheres™ ). Labeled cells are separated using an EasySep™ magnet without the use of columns. Desired cells are poured off into a new tube.

This product replaces the EasySep™ Mouse Hematopoietic Progenitor Cell Enrichment Kit (Catalog #19756) for faster cell isolations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can EasySep™ be used for either positive or negative selection?

Yes. The EasySep™ kits use either a negative selection approach by targeting and removing unwanted cells or a positive selection approach targeting desired cells. Depletion kits are also available for the removal of cells with a specific undesired marker (e.g. GlyA).

How does the separation work?

Magnetic particles are crosslinked to cells using Tetrameric Antibody Complexes (TAC). When placed in the EasySep™ Magnet, labeled cells migrate to the wall of the tube. The unlabeled cells are then poured off into a separate fraction.

Which columns do I use?

The EasySep™ procedure is column-free. That's right - no columns!

How can I analyze the purity of my enriched sample?

The Product Information Sheet provided with each EasySep™ kit contains detailed staining information.

Can EasySep™ separations be automated?

Yes. RoboSep™, the fully automated cell separator, automates all EasySep™ labeling and cell separation steps.

Can EasySep™ be used to isolate rare cells?

Yes. We recommend a cell concentration of 2x108 cells/mL and a minimum working volume of 100 µL. Samples containing 2x107 cells or fewer should be suspended in 100 µL of buffer.

Are the EasySep™ magnetic particles FACS-compatible?

Yes, the EasySep™ particles are flow cytometry-compatible, as they are very uniform in size and about 5000X smaller than other commercially available magnetic beads used with column-free systems.

Can the EasySep™ magnetic particles be removed after enrichment?

No, but due to the small size of these particles, they will not interfere with downstream applications.

Can I alter the separation time in the magnet?

Yes; however, this may impact the kit's performance. The provided EasySep™ protocols have already been optimized to balance purity, recovery and time spent on the isolation.

For positive selection, can I perform more than 3 separations to increase purity?

Yes, the purity of targeted cells will increase with additional rounds of separations; however, cell recovery will decrease.

How does the binding of the EasySep™ magnetic particle affect the cells? is the function of positively selected cells altered by the bound particles?

Hundreds of publications have used cells selected with EasySep™ positive selection kits for functional studies. Our in-house experiments also confirm that selected cells are not functionally altered by the EasySep™ magnetic particles.

If particle binding is a key concern, we offer two options for negative selection. The EasySep™ negative selection kits can isolate untouched cells with comparable purities, while RosetteSep™ can isolate untouched cells directly from whole blood without using particles or magnets.

Dendritic Cell-Restricted Progenitors Contribute to Obesity-Associated Airway Inflammation via Adam17-p38 MAPK-Dependent Pathway. A. K. Jaiswal et al. Frontiers in immunology 2020

Abstract

Proliferation of dendritic cell (DC)-restricted progenitor cells in bone marrow compartment is tightly regulated at steady state and responds to multiple tissue-specific triggers during disturbed homeostasis such as obesity. DCs in the lung stem from a rapidly dividing DC-restricted progenitor cells and are effective at generating adaptive immune responses in allergic airway inflammation. Precisely, how DC-restricted progenitor expansion and differentiation are influenced by airway inflammation to maintain constant supply of myeloid DCs is poorly understood. Here we show that a high fat diet (HFD) induces oxidative stress and accelerates the expansion of DC- restricted progenitor cells in bone marrow and correlates with persistent induction of p38 mitogen activated protein kinase (MAPK), which is blocked with a selective p38$\alpha$/$\beta$ MAPK inhibitor. Mice fed a HFD and sensitized to inhaled allergen house dust mite (HDM) led to alterations of DC- restricted progenitor cells that were characterized by increased expansion and seeding of lung DCs in airway inflammation. Mechanistically, we establish that the expansion induced by HFD dysregulates the expression of a disintegrin and metallopeptidase domain 17 (Adam17) and is required for p38 MAPK activation in DC-restricted progenitors. These results demonstrates that obesity produces persistent changes in DC precursors and that elevation of Adam17 expression is tightly coupled to p38 MAPK and is a key driver of proliferation. Altogether, these data provide phenotypic and mechanistic insight into dendritic cell supply chain in obesity-associated airway inflammation.
Restraining Lysosomal Activity Preserves Hematopoietic Stem Cell Quiescence and Potency. R. Liang et al. Cell stem cell 2020

Abstract

Quiescence is a fundamental property that maintains hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) potency throughout life. Quiescent HSCs are thought to rely on glycolysis for their energy, but the overall metabolic properties of HSCs remain elusive. Using combined approaches, including single-cell RNA sequencing (RNA-seq), we show that mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP) distinguishes quiescent from cycling-primed HSCs. We found that primed, but not quiescent, HSCs relied readily on glycolysis. Notably, in vivo inhibition of glycolysis enhanced the competitive repopulation ability of primed HSCs. We further show that HSC quiescence is maintained by an abundance of large lysosomes. Repression of lysosomal activation in HSCs led to further enlargement of lysosomes while suppressing glucose uptake. This also induced increased lysosomal sequestration of mitochondria and enhanced the competitive repopulation ability of primed HSCs by over 90-fold in vivo. These findings show that restraining lysosomal activity preserves HSC quiescence and potency and may be therapeutically relevant.
Genomic subtyping and therapeutic targeting of acute erythroleukemia. I. Iacobucci et al. Nature genetics 2019

Abstract

Acute erythroid leukemia (AEL) is a high-risk leukemia of poorly understood genetic basis, with controversy regarding diagnosis in the spectrum of myelodysplasia and myeloid leukemia. We compared genomic features of 159 childhood and adult AEL cases with non-AEL myeloid disorders and defined five age-related subgroups with distinct transcriptional profiles: adult, TP53 mutated; NPM1 mutated; KMT2A mutated/rearranged; adult, DDX41 mutated; and pediatric, NUP98 rearranged. Genomic features influenced outcome, with NPM1 mutations and HOXB9 overexpression being associated with a favorable prognosis and TP53, FLT3 or RB1 alterations associated with poor survival. Targetable signaling mutations were present in 45{\%} of cases and included recurrent mutations of ALK and NTRK1, the latter of which drives erythroid leukemogenesis sensitive to TRK inhibition. This genomic landscape of AEL provides the framework for accurate diagnosis and risk stratification of this disease, and the rationale for testing targeted therapies in this high-risk leukemia.
