Overview

Basophil activation in unfractionated samples such as PBMC (note basophils are less dense than Ficoll) or whole blood can be measured by changes in the expression of cell surface markers or even intracellular events (e.g. phosphorylation, oxidative burst, calcium flux) by flow cytometry. Separate markers (e.g. as CD123+ HLA-DR-) are used to specifically identify basophils in addition to those used for assessment of activation.

This protocol is specifically for our collaboration with Aleena Banerji in Allergy Associates and Oncology.

Materials

  • RPMI medium (cellgro, 10-040-CV; store at 4°C in dark)
  • IL-3 (R&D) 2 μg/mL (stock aliquots are 10 μg/mL)
  • 1 X FACS lysing solution (made from 10X stock with dH2O; store at 4°C; expires in 1 month)
  • Staining Buffer (PBS + 2 mM EDTA + 0.5% BSA) (sterile filter, store at 4°C; aliquot in hood; expires in 2 months)
  • monoclonal antibodies (e.g. CD63-FITC, CD203c-PE, CD123 PE-Cy5, HLA DR-PE-Cy7)
  • stimulant aliquots (pre-made, 30 μL aliquots, distributed by Shreffler Lab; stored at -80°C)
  • 5 mL round bottom polypropylene tubes (Falcon)
  • 1.5 mL eppendorf tubes
  • 15 and 50 mL conical tubes
  • pipettes and tips
  • serological pipettes (5, 10, 25)
  • Platin drug (20X concentration)

Procedure

  1. Obtain whole blood specimens collected in sodium heparin tube (green top). Keep at RT until use (within 16 hours).
  2. Remove pre-made stimulants (fMLP, Drug, Anti-IgE) from freezer and let thaw.
  3. Place RPMI BSA aliquot in water bath for ~5-10 minutes.

    • CD123-PC5
    • HLA-DR-APC
