Robust Cell Cycle Analysis Using the FlowSight Imaging Flow Cytometer with the FlowCellectTM Bivariate Cell Cycle Kit for G2/M Analysis

Robust Cell Cycle Analysis Using the FlowSight Imaging Flow Cytometer with the FlowCellectTM Bivariate Cell Cycle Kit for G2/M Analysis

The Flow cytometric analysis of cell DNA content is widely used for the estimation of cell cycle phase distributions. Adding a fluorescently-labeled cell cycle phase-specific antibody to complement the DNA-binding dye typically used for cell cycle analysis allows for a robust bivariate cell cycle assay that can accurately identify mitotic cells. By further running such a bivariate analysis on an imaging flow cytometer, the mitotic population can be visually analyzed to identify and enumerate cells in specific stages of mitosis. This study demonstrates such an approach by pairing the Amnis® FlowSight® imaging flow cytometer with the EMD Millipore FlowCellect™ Bivariate Cell Cycle Kit for G2/M Analysis.

Abstract
The Flow cytometric analysis of cell DNAcontent is widely used for the estimationof cell cycle phase distributions. Adding auorescently-labeled cell cycle phase-specicantibody to complement the DNA-binding dyetypically used for cell cycle analysis allowsfor a robust bivariate cell cycle assay that canaccurately identify mitotic cells. By furtherrunning such a bivariate analysis on an imaging ow cytometer, the mitotic population can bevisually analyzed to identify and enumeratecells in specic stages of mitosis. This studydemonstrates such an approach by pairing the Amnis

Researchers have employed various strategies to closelyinterrogate each of the critical steps of the various phasesin the cell cycle. For example, analysis of cells in S-phaseprovides a direct measurement of newly synthesizedDNA, while the ratio of cells in the G2 and M phases isindicative of the number of cells undergoing mitosis. Inall, a comprehensive understanding of cell cycle behaviorprovides useful information which can be important ininterpreting the intrinsic nature of cell proliferation andassist in the development of anti-neoplastic agents.
Improving Cell Cycle Analysis
The FlowSight imaging ow cytometer operates like aconventional ow cytometer but provides up to 12 imagesof every cell, including brighteld, darkeld and up to nineuorescence channels. This unique combination providesimportant new capabilities, such as visual vericationof each object acquired, and measurement of the spatiallocation of uorescence on, within, or between cells.Visual verication removes the guesswork from gating andcan accelerate assay development and optimization byproviding visual conrmation of assay performance in anyindividual cell or group of cells. Automated quantitativemeasurement of uorescence localization and morphologyenables a broad range of applications that would beimpossible by traditional ow cytometry with statisticallyrobust, quantitative image analyses that are not availableby conventional microscopy.The FlowCellect Bivariate Cell Cycle Kit for G2/M Analysis(cat. no. FCCH025103) simplies the study of the cellcycle by providing a cell cycle phase-specic antibody(Anti-phospho-Histone H3 (Ser10) – Alexa Fluor 488conjugated monoclonal antibody) in addition to a DNA-binding dye (Propidium Iodide) to yield a robust bivariateanalysis in ow cytometry applications. Moreover, the kitincludes a BrdU precursor to allow for BrdU measurementby the conjugated antibody and an RNase reagent toensure that the PI intensity is directly proportional to DNAcontent only. This method of analysis reveals not only thedistribution of cells in particular phases of the cycle, butalso provides insight into the molecular and functionalmechanisms associated within the cell cycle.
