The EasySep™ Mouse T Cell Isolation Kit is designed to isolate 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-T cells and streptavidin-coated magnetic particles. 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 T Cell Enrichment Kit (Catalog #19751) 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.

Role of innate lymphoid cells and dendritic cells in intradermal immunization of the enterovirus antigen.

S. Fan et al.


Enterovirus type 71 (EV71) and coxsackievirus A 16 (CA16) are the major pathogens of human hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD). In our previous study, intramuscular immunization with the inactivated EV71 vaccine elicited effective immunity, while immunization with the inactivated CA16 vaccine did not. In this report, we focused on innate immune responses elicited by inactivated EV71 and CA16 antigens administered intradermally or intramuscularly. The distributions of the EV71 and CA16 antigens administered intradermally or intramuscularly were not obviously different, but the antigens were detected for a shorter period of time when administered intradermally. The expression levels of NF-kappaB pathway signaling molecules, which were identified as being capable of activating DCs, ILCs, and T cells, were higher in the intradermal group than in the intramuscular group. Antibodies for the EV71 and CA16 antigens colocalized with ILCs and DCs in skin and muscle tissues under fluorescence microscopy. Interestingly, ILC colocalization decreased over time, while DC colocalization increased over time. ELISpot analysis showed that coordination between DCs and ILCs contributed to successful adaptive immunity against vaccine antigens in the skin. EV71 and/or CA16 antigen immunization via the intradermal route was more capable of significantly increasing neutralizing antibody titers and activating specific T cell responses than immunization via the intramuscular route. Furthermore, neonatal mice born to mothers immunized with the EV71 and CA16 antigens were 100{\%} protected against wild-type EV71 or CA16 viral challenge. Together, our results provide new insights into the development of vaccines for HFMD.

Lipopolysaccharide shock reveals the immune function of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 2 through the regulation of IL-6/stat3 signalling.

Y. Yamamoto et al.


Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 2 (Ido2) is a recently identified catalytic enzyme in the tryptophan-kynurenine pathway that is expressed primarily in monocytes and dendritic cells. To elucidate the biological role of Ido2 in immune function, we introduced lipopolysaccharide (LPS) endotoxin shock to Ido2 knockout (Ido2 KO) mice, which led to higher mortality than that in the wild type (WT) mice. LPS-treated Ido2 KO mice had increased production of inflammatory cytokines (including interleukin-6; IL-6) in serum and signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (stat3) phosphorylation in the spleen. Moreover, the peritoneal macrophages of LPS-treated Ido2 KO mice produced more cytokines than did the WT mice. By contrast, the overexpression of Ido2 in the murine macrophage cell line (RAW) suppressed cytokine production and decreased stat3 expression. Finally, RAW cells overexpressing Ido2 did not alter nuclear factor $\kappa$B (NF-$\kappa$B) or stat1 expression, but IL-6 and stat3 expression decreased relative to the control cell line. These results reveal that Ido2 modulates IL-6/stat3 signalling and is induced by LPS, providing novel options for the treatment of immune disorders.

Fam65b Phosphorylation Relieves Tonic RhoA Inhibition During T Cell Migration.

L. Megrelis et al.


We previously identified Fam65b as an atypical inhibitor of the small G protein RhoA. Using a conditional model of a Fam65b-deficient mouse, we first show that Fam65b restricts spontaneous RhoA activation in resting T lymphocytes and regulates intranodal T cell migration in vivo. We next aimed at understanding, at the molecular level, how the brake that Fam65b exerts on RhoA can be relieved upon signaling to allow RhoA activation. Here, we show that chemokine stimulation phosphorylates Fam65b in T lymphocytes. This post-translational modification decreases the affinity of Fam65b for RhoA and favors Fam65b shuttling from the plasma membrane to the cytosol. Functionally, we show that the degree of Fam65b phosphorylation controls some cytoskeletal alterations downstream active RhoA such as actin polymerization, as well as T cell migration in vitro. Altogether, our results show that Fam65b expression and phosphorylation can finely tune the amount of active RhoA in order to favor optimal T lymphocyte motility.

T Cells Deficient in Diacylglycerol Kinase ζ Are Resistant to PD-1 Inhibition and Help Create Persistent Host Immunity to Leukemia.

Jing W et al.


Efforts to improve the efficacy of adoptive T-cell therapies and immune checkpoint therapies in myelogenous leukemia are desired. In this study, we evaluated the antileukemia activity of adoptively transferred polyclonal cancer antigen-reactive T cells deficient in the regulator diacylglycerol kinase zeta (DGKζ) with or without PD-1/PD-L1 blockade. In the C1498 mouse model of myeloid leukemia, we showed that leukemia was eradicated more effectively in DGKζ-deficient (DGKζ-/-) mice than wild-type mice. T cells transferred from DGKζ-deficient mice to wild-type tumor-bearing recipients conferred this benefit. Leukemia clearance was similar to mice treated with anti-PD-L1. Strikingly, we found that the activity of adoptively transferred DGKζ-/- T cells relied partly on induction of sustainable host T-cell immunity. Transferring DGKζ-deficient T cells increased the levels of IFNγ and other cytokines in recipient mice, especially with coadministration of anti-PD-L1. Overall, our results offered evidence that targeting DGKζ may leverage the efficacy of adoptive T-cell and immune checkpoint therapies in leukemia treatment. Furthermore, they suggest that DGKζ targeting might decrease risks of antigen escape or resistance to immune checkpoint blockade. Cancer Res; 77(20); 5676-86. textcopyright2017 AACR.

Fatty Acid Uptake in T Cell Subsets Using a Quantum Dot Fatty Acid Conjugate.

Muroski ME et al.


Fatty acid (FA) metabolism directly influences the functional capabilities of T cells in tumor microenvironments. Thus, developing tools to interrogate FA-uptake by T cell subsets is important for understanding tumor immunosuppression. Herein, we have generated a novel FA-Qdot 605 dye conjugate with superior sensitivity and flexibility to any of the previously commercially available alternatives. For the first time, we demonstrate that this nanoparticle can be used as a specific measure of fatty acid uptake by T cells both in-vitro and in-vivo. Flow cytometric analysis shows that both the location and activation status of T cells determines their FA uptake. Additionally, CD4+ Foxp3+ regulatory T cells (Tregs) uptake FA at a higher rate than effector T cell subsets, supporting the role of FA metabolism for Treg function. Furthermore, we are able to simultaneously detect glucose and fatty acid uptake directly within the tumor microenvironment. Cumulatively, our results suggest that this novel fluorescent probe is a powerful tool to understand FA utilization within the tumor, thereby providing an unprecedented opportunity to study T cell FA metabolism in-vivo.
