H2A.X is a 14 kD basal histone and a member of the H2 histone family. This nuclear protein is synthesized in the G1 and S phase of the cell cycle and is known to be important for DNA repair and maintaining genomic stability and for recombination between immunoglobulin switch regions. H2A.X becomes phosphorylated on serine 139 after double-stranded DNA breaks. Phosphorylated H2A.X promotes DNA repair and maintains genomic stability. The 2F3 monoclonal antibody reacts with phosphorylated human H2A.X (Ser139) and has been shown to be useful for Western blotting, immunofluorescence and flow cytometry.Product Details

Intracellular staining protocol for Anti-H2A.X-Phosphorylated (Ser139) Antibody for Flow Cytometry
1. Prepare 70% absolute ethanol. Chill solution by storing at -20°C.
2. Prepare cells of interest.
3. Wash 1X with PBS, centrifuge at 350g for 5 min.
4. Discard the supernatant and vortex to loosen cell pellet.
5. Add pre-cooled 70% ethanol drop by drop, while vortexing.
6. Incubate at -20°C for 60 minutes.
7. Wash 3X with BioLegend Cell Staining Buffer and resuspend the cells at 0.5-1 X 107 cells/ml in the cell staining buffer.
8. Perform immunofluorescent staining for flow cytometry.
