Product Protocol: Il17a antibody used to evaluate endogenous il-17 as a mediator of neutrophil recruitment caused by endotoxin exposure in mouse airways (OASA08429)

Specificity: IL-17

Experiment Type: Detection of IL-17 protein with ELISPOT

Detection of soluble mIL-17 protein released from a coculture of positively selected lung CD3+ cells plus airway macrophages was conducted using ELISPOT assay. Briefly, cell culture plates (M200; ImmunoSpot, Cleveland, OH) were coated overnight at 4°C with a monoclonal anti-mouse capture Ab (clone 50101.111; 5.0 μg/ml; R&D Systems) dissolved in PBS. The plates were then blocked with blocking solution (RPMI 1640 plus 10% FCS plus 100 U/ml penicillin, 100 U/ml streptomycin, all from Sigma-Aldrich).

CD3+ lymphocytes from lung tissue were enriched over a magnetic field. The cells were seeded (0.5 × 106 cells/well) in the plates with and without airway macrophages, respectively, in complete medium (RPMI 1640 plus 10% FCS plus 100 U/ml penicillin, 100 μg/ml streptomycin, 100 μg/ml sodium-pyruvate, and 4 mM l-glutamine). One-half of the cultures were stimulated with CI (1 μg/ml) and PMA (2 ng/ml). After 20 h of incubation in 5% CO2 at 37°C, the plates were washed (PBS plus 0.05% Tween 20), and the biotinylated anti-mIL-17 (clone AUS01; 2 μg/ml; R&D Systems) was used to detect the captured extracellular IL-17 protein. Spots were visualized using AV-HPR enzyme and 3-amino-9-ethylcarbazole substrate. The plates were washed in water to stop the reaction. Spots were enumerated using a dissecting microscope at a magnification of ×40 (CETI, Antwerpen, Belgium).

1. As analyzed with ELISPOT assay (cells pooled from seven mice, used in three to five parallel experiments), positively selected CD3+ lung lymphocytes cocultured with airway macrophages displayed a substantial increase in released soluble mIL-17 protein in response to CI plus PMA (CI plus PMA: 19.0 (2.8) spots compared with 6.0 (1.6) spots for vehicle, p < 0.01). The monoculture of positively selected CD3+ lung lymphocytes did not display any substantial release of soluble mIL-17 protein (CI plus PMA: 7.2 (1.7) spots compared with 3.7 (1.2) spots for vehicle, p > 0.05). 2. Using the same ELISPOT assay, preliminary experiments indicated that airway macrophages in monoculture were unable to release soluble mIL-17 protein after stimulation with CI plus PMA (data not shown).
