Interferon-γ is a potent multifunctional cytokine which is secreted primarily by activated NK cells and T cells. Originally characterized based on anti-viral activities, IFN-γ also exerts anti-proliferative, immunoregulatory, and proinflammatory activities. IFN-γ can upregulate MHC class I and II antigen expression by antigen-presenting cells. The 4S.B3 antibody reacts with the human IFN-γ. The MD-1 antibody reacts with human and monkey interferon-gamma (IFN-γ). The MD-1 antibody can neutralize the bioactivity of natural or recombinant IFN-γ.Product Details

- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by ELISA assay. For ELISA Capture applications, the antibody should be titrated between 0.25 - 2 µg/ml to determine optimal condition. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
ELISA1,2,5 and ELISPOT3,4 Capture: The Purified MD-1 antibody is useful as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA or ELISPOT assay, when used in conjunction with the biotinylated 4S.B3 (Cat. No. 502504/502514) antibody as the detecting antibody and recombinant human IFN-γ (Cat. No. 570209) as the standard. The LEAF™ Purified antibody is suggested for ELISPOT capture. For ELISPOT capture applications, a concentration range of 0.5-2 µg/ml is recommended.
Neutralization1: The LEAF™ Purified antibody (Endotoxin <0.1 EU/μg, Azide-Free, 0.2 μm filtered) is recommended for neutralization of human IFN-γ bioactivity (Cat. No. 507513).
Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: Western blotting1,2, intracellular staining for flow cytometry6, and immunohistochemical staining7 of paraformaldehyde-fixed, saponin-treated frozen tissue sections.
Note: For testing human IFN-γ in serum or plasma, BioLegend's ELISA Max™ Sets (Cat. No. 430101 to 430106) are specially developed and recommended.
