Product Protocol: Ccl8 antibody used to evaluate cytokine and chemokine transcription profile during mycoplasma pulmonis infection in susceptible and resistant strains of mice: macrophage inflammatory protein 1beta (ccl4) and monocyte chemoattractant protein 2 (ccl8) and accumulation of ccr5+ th cells (OASA08455)

Experiment Type: Immunofluorescence staining
Tissue sections mounted on SuperFrost glass slides were fixed in acetone for 5 min, rinsed with PBS, and blocked by 10% fetal bovine serum in PBS. Biotinylated goat anti-mouse MIP-1β (CCL4) or MCP-2 (CCL8) antibody (R&D Systems, Minneapolis, MN) was coincubated with Alexa Fluor 488-conjugated rat anti-mouse CD4 antibody (Invitrogen/Caltag Laboratories, Carlsbad, CA) on tissue, followed by incubation with anti-biotin Alexa Flour 594 secondary antibody (Invitrogen/Molecular Probes, Carlsbad, CA). An isotype control antibody to confirm specificity of chemokine stain was used to stain lungs as a control. The images were observed under an AX70 Olympus fluorescence microscope and captured by using a DP70 digital camera (Olympus, Center Valley, PA).
1. BALB/c mice were infected with M. pulmonis and, 14 days later, frozen sections from lung lobes were prepared and stained with anti-MIP-1β (CCL4) or anti-MCP-2 (CCL8) antibodies, plus anti-CD4 fluorescence-labeled antibodies. MIP-1β (CCL4)+ cells, as well as MCP2 (CCL8)+ cells, were found in the lungs of infected mice and were grouped around areas of clusters of CD4+ T cells. Lung sections stained with isotype control antibodies did not show a reaction (not shown). 2. In addition, there was little staining of lungs sections from uninfected mice (not shown). Thus, there is a clear association of CCL4 and CCL8 production and the accumulation of Th cells.
