IL-4 is a pleiotropic cytokine produced by activated T cells, mast cells, and basophils. IL-4 is a potent lymphoid cell growth factor which stimulates the growth and activation of certain B cells and T cells. IL-4 is important for regulation of T helper subset development. The BVD6-24G2 antibody reacts with mouse interleukin-4 (IL-4). The BVD6-24G2 antibody can not neutralize the bioactivity of natural or recombinant IL-4.Product Details

ELISA Detection, ELISPOT Detection
- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by ELISA assay. For use as an ELISA detection antibody, a concentration range of 0.25-1.0 µg/ml is recommended. To obtain a linear standard curve, serial dilutions of IL-4 recombinant protein ranging from 250 to 2 pg/ml are recommended for each ELISA plate. For use as an ELISPOT detection antibody, a concentration range of 1-4 µg/ml is recommended. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
ELISA Detection1-3,5,7,8 or ELISPOT Detection4: The biotinylated BVD6-24G2 antibody is useful as a detection antibody for a sandwich ELISA or ELISPOT assay, when used in conjunction with the purified 11B11 antibody (Cat. No. 504102/504108) as capture antibody and recombinant mouse IL-4 (Cat. No. 563201) as the standard.
Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: In Vivo Capture6.
Note: For testing mouse IL-4 in serum, plasma or supernatant, BioLegend's ELISA Max™ Sets (Cat. No. 431101 to 431106) are specially developed and recommended.
