IL-1 refers to two proteins, IL-1α and IL-1β which are the products of distinct genes, but which are recognized by the same cell surface receptors. IL-1α is a potent immuno-modulator which mediates a wide range of immune and inflammatory responses.Product Details

ELISA Detection, ELISPOT Detection - Quality tested
WB, IP - Reported in the literature
- 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 0.05 - 0.2 µg/ml is recommended. To obtain a linear standard curve, serial dilutions of mouse IL-1α recobinant protein ranging from 250 to 4 pg/ml are recommended for each ELISA plate. For Western Blotting applications, it is suggested to use 5 µg antibody per 5 ml antibody dilution buffer for each mini-gel. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
ELISA Detection: The biotinylated BL1a-89 antibody is useful as a detection antibody for a sandwich ELISA when used in conjunction with purified BL1a-72 antibody (Cat. No. 512402) or purified ALF-161 antibody (Cat. Nos. 503202 & 503206) as the capture antibody and recombinant mouse IL-1α (Cat. No. 580309) as the standard.
