Assay Procedure

Refer to the product datasheet for complete product details.

Briefly, human CD4+ T cells can be differentiated into Th2 cells using the following procedure:

  • Coat a plate with Mouse Anti-Human CD3 Antibody
  • Isolate human naïve CD4+ T cells from a PBMC preparation
  • Culture naïve CD4+ T cells in Human Th2 Differentiation Media for 13 days
  • Refresh the Human Th2 Differentiation Media every 3-4 days
  • Analyze culture media and cells for a Th2-specific cytokine production profile

Coat wells of a 24-well plate with Mouse Anti-Human CD3 Antibody.

Coat wells of a 24-well plate

Isolate PBMCs from human blood (e.g., using Ficoll-Hypaque™ density centrifugation).

Isolate PBMCs from human blood

Isolate human naïve CD4+ T cells from PBMCs (e.g., using magnetic cell selection).

Isolate T Cells from PBMCs

Perform a cell count.

Perform a cell count

Suspend 1-2 x 105 naïve CD4+ T cells/mL in Human Th2 Differentiation Media.

Culture the cells on plates pre-coated with CD3 Antibody for 13 days.

Refresh the Diferentiation Media every 3-4 days.

Suspend cells in media

Stimulate the cells with mitogens.

Re-stimulate the cells with mitogens

Verify Th2 cell differentiation by analyzing cytokine expression using flow cytometry.

The Th2 cells are now ready for further downstream applications.
