IL-27 is a heterodimeric cytokine consisting of EBV-induced gene-3 (EBI3, an IL-12 p40-related protein) and p28 (a newly discovered IL-12 P35-related protein). It is a member of the IL-6/IL-12 cytokine family and mainly produced by antigen-presenting cells, including macrophages and dendritic cells. IL-27 acts on T cells and NK cells. It has been reported that IL-27 drives rapid clonal expansion of naïve CD4+ T cells, and promotes Th1 polarization and IFN-γ production in synergy with IL-12. The IL-27-induced Th1 differentiation was mediated by rapid and marked upregulation of ICAM-1/LFA-1 interaction in a STAT1-dependent manner. IL-27 exhibits anti-inflammatory function by enhancing Th1 cell differentiation, a potent antitumor activity, through CD8+ T cell and NK cell activation. It also plays a potential therapeutic role in autoimmune disease by inhibiting Th-17 development. IL-27 mediates its biological effects through its receptor, WSX-1/T cell cytokine receptor (TCCR), which is homologous to the IL-12Rβ2 subunit. Protein gp130 serves as a functional signal-transducing molecule for IL-27.

Mouse IL-27-OVA
0.2 µm filtered in phosphate-buffered solution, pH 7.2, containing no preservative. Endotoxin level is <0.01 EU/µg of the protein (<0.001 ng/µg of the protein) as determined by the LAL test.
The Ultra-LEAF™ (Low Endotoxin, Azide-Free) antibody was purified by affinity chromatography.
The antibody is bottled at the concentration indicated on the vial, typically between 2 mg/mL and 3 mg/mL. Older lots may have also been bottled at 1 mg/mL. To obtain lot-specific concentration, please enter the lot number in our Concentration and Expiration Lookup or Certificate of Analysis online tools.
Storage & Handling
The antibody solution should be stored undiluted between 2°C and 8°C. This Ultra-LEAF™ solution contains no preservative; handle under aseptic conditions.

ELISA Capture - Quality tested
Neut - Reported in the literature, not verified in house

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by ELISA assay. A concentration of 0.5 µg/ml of the capture antibody was utilized to generate the example standard curve. It is recommended that the end-user titrate each lot of reagents for optimal performance.

Application Notes

Clone MM27-7B1 specifically recognizes the p28 subunit of IL-27.1 We confirmed clone MM27-7B1 cross-reactivity to recombinant human IL-27 in-house using an immunoassay.

ELISA Capture: To measure mouse IL-27, this antibody can be used as a capture antibody in sandwich ELISA format and paired with the biotinylated B02P6E6 antibody (Cat. No. 525904) as the detection antibody. Recombinant Mouse IL-27 (ELISA Std.) (Cat. No. 577409) can be used as the protein standard.
Flow Cytometry: The fluorochrome-labeled MM27-7B1 antibody is useful for intracellular and membrane-bound immunofluorescent staining and flow cytometric analysis to identify granulysin-producing cells within mixed cell populations.
Note: For measuring mouse IL-27 in serum, plasma or cell culture supernatant, LEGEND MAX™ Mouse IL-27 Heterodimer ELISA Kit with Pre-coated Plate (Cat. No. 438707) is specially developed and recommended.

Related FAQs

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 Ultra-LEAF™ antibody by functional assay?

No, BioLegend does not test Ultra-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.

Does BioLegend test each Ultra-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 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.
