Overview

The EasySep™ Mouse CD8+ T Cell Isolation Kit is designed to isolate CD8+ T cells from single-cell suspensions of splenocytes or other tissues by negative selection. Unwanted cells are targeted for removal with biotinylated antibodies directed against non-CD8+ T cells 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 CD8+ T Cell Enrichment Kit (Catalog #19753) for even faster cell isolations.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

Currently, EasySep™ Streptavidin RapidSphere™ kits are only available for negative selection and work by targeting and removing unwanted cells.

How does the separation work?

Streptavidin RapidSphere™ magnetic particles are crosslinked to unwanted cells using biotinylated antibodies. When placed in the EasySep™ Magnet, labeled cells migrate to the wall of the tube. The unlabeled cells are then poured off into a new tube.

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™ Streptavidin RapidSphere™ separations be automated?

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

Are cells isolated using EasySep™ RapidSphere™ products FACS-compatible?

Yes. Desired cells are unlabeled and ready to use in downstream applications, such as FACS analysis.

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.

Detecting Tumor Antigen-Specific T Cells via Interaction-Dependent Fucosyl-Biotinylation. Z. Liu et al. Cell 2020 nov

Abstract

Re-activation and clonal expansion of tumor-specific antigen (TSA)-reactive T cells are critical to the success of checkpoint blockade and adoptive transfer of tumor-infiltrating lymphocyte (TIL)-based therapies. There are no reliable markers to specifically identify the repertoire of TSA-reactive T cells due to their heterogeneous composition. We introduce FucoID as a general platform to detect endogenous antigen-specific T cells for studying their biology. Through this interaction-dependent labeling approach, intratumoral TSA-reactive CD4+, CD8+ T cells, and TSA-suppressive CD4+ T cells can be detected and separated from bystander T cells based on their cell-surface enzymatic fucosyl-biotinylation. Compared to bystander TILs, TSA-reactive TILs possess a distinct T cell receptor (TCR) repertoire and unique gene features. Although exhibiting a dysfunctional phenotype, TSA-reactive CD8+ TILs possess substantial capabilities of proliferation and tumor-specific killing. Featuring genetic manipulation-free procedures and a quick turnover cycle, FucoID should have the potential of accelerating the pace of personalized cancer treatment.
Pharmacokinetic tuning of protein-antigen fusions enhances the immunogenicity of T-cell vaccines. N. K. Mehta et al. Nature biomedical engineering 2020 jun

Abstract

The formulations of peptide-based antitumour vaccines being tested in clinical studies are generally associated with weak potency. Here, we show that pharmacokinetically tuning the responses of peptide vaccines by fusing the peptide epitopes to carrier proteins optimizes vaccine immunogenicity in mice. In particular, we show in immunized mice that the carrier protein transthyretin simultaneously optimizes three factors: efficient antigen uptake in draining lymphatics from the site of injection, protection of antigen payloads from proteolytic degradation and reduction of antigen presentation in uninflamed distal lymphoid organs. Optimizing these factors increases vaccine immunogenicity by up to 90-fold and maximizes the responses to viral antigens, tumour-associated antigens, oncofetal antigens and shared neoantigens. Protein-peptide epitope fusions represent a facile and generalizable strategy for enhancing the T-cell responses elicited by subunit vaccines.
Lymphatic endothelial cells prime na\ive CD8+ T cells into memory cells under steady-state conditions." E. Vokali et al. Nature communications 2020 jan

Abstract

Lymphatic endothelial cells (LECs) chemoattract na{\{i}}ve T cells and promote their survival in the lymph nodes and can cross-present antigens to na{\"{i}}ve CD8+ T cells to drive their proliferation despite lacking key costimulatory molecules. However the functional consequence of LEC priming of CD8+ T cells is unknown. Here we show that while many proliferating LEC-educated T cells enter early apoptosis the remainders comprise a long-lived memory subset with transcriptional metabolic and phenotypic features of central memory and stem cell-like memory T cells. In vivo these memory cells preferentially home to lymph nodes and display rapid proliferation and effector differentiation following memory recall and can protect mice against a subsequent bacterial infection. These findings introduce a new immunomodulatory role for LECs in directly generating a memory-like subset of quiescent yet antigen-experienced CD8+ T cells that are long-lived and can rapidly differentiate into effector cells upon inflammatory antigenic challenge."""
