IFN-γ (Interferon-gamma) is produced mainly by activated T cells and NK cells. Production of IFN-γ (Interferon-gamma) by helper T cells as well as cytotoxic T cells is a hallmark of the TH1-type phenotype, thus, high-level production of IFN-γ (Interferon-gamma) is typically associated with effective host defense against intracellular pathogens. The Enzyme-Linked ImmunoSpot (ELISpot) assay is commonly used to assess the function of antigen specific T cells by detecting IFN-γ release. The ELISpot assay is a very sensitive immunoassay, allowing the detection of a secreted cytokine at the single cell level. With detection levels that can be as low as one cell in 100,000, the ELISpot is one of the most sensitive cellular assays available. Depending on the substance analyzed, the ELISpot assay is between 20 and 200 times more sensitive than a conventional ELISA.

[Abstract] IFN-γ (Interferon-gamma) is produced mainly by activated T cells and NK cells. Production of IFN-γ (Interferon-gamma) by helper T cells as well as cytotoxic T cells is a hallmark of the TH1-type phenotype, thus, high-level production of IFN-γ (Interferon-gamma) is typically associated with effective host defense against intracellular pathogens. The Enzyme-Linked ImmunoSpot (ELISpot) assay is commonly used to assess the function of antigen specific T cells by detecting IFN-γ release. The ELISpot assay is a very sensitive immunoassay, allowing the detection of a secreted cytokine at the single cell level. With detection levels that can be as low as one cell in 100,000, the ELISpot is one of the most sensitive cellular assays available.

[Abstract] IFN-γ(干扰素-γ)主要产生于激活的T细胞和NK细胞。TH1型响应的特点是通过辅助T细胞和细胞毒T细胞产生IFN-γ,所以高水平IFN-γ的产生是由于寄主应对细胞内的病原体产生了有效的防御。酶联免疫斑点法通常用于评估抗原特异的T细胞的功效,即检测IFN-γ的释放。酶联免疫斑点法是一种非常灵敏的免疫检测方法,它可以在单细胞水平检测细胞因子的分泌。酶联免疫斑点法是最灵敏的细胞检测方法之一,它检测的灵敏度可以达到1:100000个细胞。依赖于化学物质的分析,酶联免疫斑点分析可以比传统的ELISA灵敏20到200倍。

Materials and Reagents

  1. Mouse IFN-γ ELISpot kit (ALP) (Mabtech, catalog number: 3321-2A )
  2. Human IFN-γ ELISpot kit (ALP) (Mabtech, catalog number: 3420-2A )
    Note: The above ELISpot kits have been tested by the author and may be substituted with the kits desired by users.
  3. SIGMAFAST™ BCIP®/NBT (Sigma-Aldrich, catalog number: B5655 )
  4. Phosphate buffered saline (PBS)
  5. Phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) (Sigma-Aldrich, catalog number: 79346 )
  6. Ionomycin (Sigma-Aldrich, catalog number: I9657 )
  7. Wash buffer (Santa Cruz Biotechnology, catalog number: sc-29113 ) (see Recipes)

Equipment

  1. AID EliSpot Reader classic (Autoimmun Diagnostika GmbH)
  2. ELISpot plate
  3. 37 °C humidified incubator

Procedure

Day 1: Preparation of ELISpot plate (sterile conditions)

  1. Dilute the coating antibody (AN18) to 2-15 μg/ml in sterile PBS, pH 7.4 (16 μl antibody in 8 ml PBS, 1:500).
  2. Remove the ELISpot plate from the package and add 75 μl/well of the antibody solution and incubate overnight at 4-8 °C.

Day 2: Incubation of cells in plate (sterile conditions)

  1. Remove excess antibody and wash plate 5 times with sterile wash buffer (PBS-T), 250 μl/well.
  2. Add 250 μl/well of medium containing 10% of the same serum as used for the cell suspensions (usually FBS). Incubate for at least 2 h at room temperature (RT).
  3. Remove the medium and add the cells suspension including possible stimulatory agents. Typical groups include cells with no stimulant, cells with antigens (protein or peptides) and cells with PMA (10 ng/ml) and Ionomycin (500 ng/ml) (positive control).
  4. The number of cells in each well depends on the frequency of the IFN-γ releasing cells in your sample, usually from 2 x 104 to 2.5 x 105. If target cells are used such as T2 pulsed with peptide or tumor cells, the T cells/target cells ratio needs to be determined to achieve the optimal detection.
  5. Put the plate in a 37 °C humidified incubator with 5% CO2 and incubate for 12-48 h. Do not move the plate during this time and take measures to avoid evaporation.

Day 3: Incubation of cells in plate (sterile conditions)

  1. Remove the cells by emptying the plate and add 250 μl/well H2O and keep it on ice for 10 min.
  2. Wash the plate 5 times with wash buffer, 250 μl/ well.
  3. Dilute the detection antibody (R4-6A2-biotin) to 0.5-1 μg/ml (4 μl antibody in 8 ml PBS, 1:2000) in PBS containing 0.5% FBS. Add 75 μl/ well and incubate for 2 h at 37 °C.
  4. Wash plate 5 times with wash buffer, 250 μl/ well.
  5. Dilute the Streptavidin-ALP (1:1,000) in PBS-0.5% FBS and add 100 μl/well. Incubate for 1 h at RT.
  6. Wash plate 5 times with wash buffer, 250 μl/ well.
  7. Prepare the substrate solution by dissolving one BCIP/NBT tablet in 10 ml ddH2O and add 100 μl/ well.
  8. Develop the plate in the dark until distinct spots emerge.
  9. Stop color development by washing extensively in tap water. If desirable, remove the plate from the tray or the inderdrain and rinse the underside of the membrane.
  10. Leave the plate to dry. Inspect and count spots in an ELISpot reader or in a dissection microscope (not recommended).
  11. Store plate in the dark at RT.

程序

第1天:酶联免疫斑点板的制作(无菌条件下)

  1. 稀释涂料抗体(AN18),以2-15微克在无菌PBS/毫升,pH 7.4的(在8ml PBS中16微升抗体,1:500)。
  2. 从包装中取出酶联免疫斑点板,并添加75微升/孔的抗体溶液,在4-8℃下孵育过夜。

第2天:在平板中孵育细胞(无菌条件)

  1. 除去过量的抗体,用无菌洗涤缓冲液(PBS-T),250μl/孔洗涤板5次。

but then you will have security iesuss and also it will reqire you to have a computer on all the time. also if its hosted wqith some one else they usualy will look after the computer maintanance and will makesure its upp 99.9% of the timebut i agree personal servers is? the best (dedicated servers for the win!)
