Description

The C15.6 antibody reacts with mouse IL-12 p40 subunit of the IL-12 p70 and IL-23 p40 subunit of the IL-23 p19/p40, as well as p40 monomer and homodimer, or heterodimer. The C15.6 antibody can not neutralize the bioactivity of natural or recombinant IL-12.

Application

ELISA Capture - Quality tested

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by ELISA assay. For ELISPOT capture applications, a concentration range of 2.0 - 6.0 µg/ml is recommended. For ELISA capture applications, a concentration range of 1.0 - 4.0 µg/ml is recommended. To obtain a linear standard curve, serial dilutions of IL-12 recombinant protein ranging from 250 to 2 pg/ml are recommended for each ELISA plate. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

ELISA or ELISPOT Capture1,2,4,6,8,10: The purified C15.6 antibody is useful as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA or ELISPOT assay, when used in conjunction with the biotinylated C17.8 (Cat. No. 505302) antibody as the detecting antibody. This assay detects p40 as monomer, homodimer, or heterodimer complexed with p35. The LEAF™ purified antibody is suggested for ELISPOT capture.
Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: immunohistochemical staining9 of paraformaldehyde-fixed saponin-treated frozen tissue sections, immunoprecipitation3, and Western blotting3.
Note: For testing mouse IL-12 p40 (monomer, dimer, heteromer) in serum or plasma, BioLegend's ELISA Max™ Sets (Cat. No. 431601 to 431606) are specially developed and recommended.

Related FAQs

Does BioLegend test each LEAF™ antibody by functional assay?

No, BioLegend does not test LEAF™ antibodies by functional assays unless otherwise indicated. Due to the possible complexities and variations of uses of biofunctional antibodies in different assays and because of the large product portfolio, BioLegend does not currently perform functional assays as a routine QC for the antibodies. However, we do provide references in which the antibodies were used for functional assays and we do perform QC to verify the specificity and quality of the antibody based on our strict specification criteria.

Do you guarantee that your antibodies are totally pathogen free?

BioLegend does not test for pathogens in-house aside from the GoInVivo™ product line. However, upon request, this can be tested on a custom basis with an outside, independent laboratory.

Does BioLegend test each LEAF™ antibody for potential pathogens?

No, BioLegend does not test for pathogens in-house unless otherwise indicated.  However, we can recommend an outside vendor to perform this testing as needed.

Have you tested this LEAF™/Ultra-LEAF™ antibody for in vivo or in vitro applications?

We don't test our antibodies for in vivo or in vitro applications unless otherwise indicated. Depending on the product, the TDS may describe literature supporting usage of a particular product for bioassay. It may be best to further consult the literature to find clone specific information.
