for Jurkat nuclear extract (PHA stimulated)Background

Jurkat nuclear extract (PHA stimulated) was prepared from cell cultures of the Jurkat human CD4(+) T cell lymphoblast-like cell line. The Jurkat cell line was established from the propagation of peripheral blood cells of a 14 year old boy with T cell leukemia. These cells are primarily used in research as a T cell model system, particularly in studies of T cell signaling, T cell leukemia, and response to viral infection. Jurkat cells are frequently used in HIV-related research to examine the mechanisms governing T cell-mediated immunity in response to HIV infection.

Stimulation of these cells with phorbol esters, such as 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) and either lectins, such as phytohaemagglutinin (PHA) or monoclonal antibodies leads to activation of T cell antigen receptors and induction of IL-2 expression. Because these cells can produce IL-2 in response to stimulation, they are frequently used in research to study the regulation of cytokine expression and differentiation. However, the primary use of Jurkat cells is to study the response of various cancers to radiation or drug treatments.

for Jurkat nuclear extract (PHA stimulated)Application Notes

Jurkat nuclear extract (PHA stimulated) is specifically recommended for use in studies related to 1) T cell-mediated immunity and response to viral infection (e.g. HIV), 2) cytokine induction and cell differentiation, and 3) cellular response to cancer therapies.

for Jurkat nuclear extract (PHA stimulated)Extract Origin

Human T lymphoblast; acute T cell leukemia

for Jurkat nuclear extract (PHA stimulated)Extract Composition

Jurkat nuclear extract (PHA stimulated) is supplied in Dilution Buffer (20 mM Hepes (pH 7.9), 100 mM KCl, 1 mM MgCl2, 20% glycerol, 0.5 mM PMSF and 0.5 mM DTT). Cells were cultured in medium supplemented with 2 µg/ml PHA (Leucoagglutinin, PHA-L) for 2 days at 37°C immediately prior to harvesting.

for Jurkat nuclear extract (PHA stimulated)Quality Control

Each lot has been tested by Western blot and for NFATc1 activation by using TransAM® Kits.

for Jurkat nuclear extract (PHA stimulated)Storage

To ensure stability, extracts should be stored at -80°C.

We recommend aliquoting the extracts into single-use fractions and then storing them at -80°C. This eliminates repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

for Jurkat nuclear extract (PHA stimulated)Guarantee

This product is guaranteed for 6 months from date of receipt.

This product is for research use only and is not for use in diagnostic procedures.
