MBP1-17 in TC media

For in vitro restimulation of MBP1-17-specific T cells

Supplied in vials

Consistently induces in vitro recall responses of T cells isolated from MBP1-17/CFA-immunized mice

Induces potent encephalitogenic T cells in vitro

MBP1-17 in TC media is used in vitro to generate encephalitogenic T cells or to evaluate cellular immune responses.

Encephalitogenic cells are generated by culturing splenocytes from immunized mice for 72 hours in the presence of 20 µg/mL of antigen. To generate encephalitogenic cells, IL-23 or IL-12 and anti-IFNγ antibodies may be added to the culture.
