This protocol uses Nr4a1-GFP Nr4a3-Tocky mice to study T cell receptor (TCR) signaling using flow cytometry. It identifies the optimal mouse transgenic status and fluorochromes compatible with the dual reporter. This protocol has applications in TCR signaling, and we outline how to obtain high-quality datasets. It is not compatible with cellular fixation, and cells should be analyzed immediately after staining. 

For complete details on the use and execution of this protocol, please refer to Jennings et al., 2020.
