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.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 0.5-2.0 µg/ml is recommended. To obtain a linear standard curve, serial dilutions of IFN-γ recombinant protein (Cat. No. 575309) are recommended at concentration up to 2000 pg/mL. The final standard range should be determined by the end user.
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 Capture1-4,6,10,11 or ELISPOT Capture5: The purified R4-6A2 antibody is useful as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA or ELISPOT assay, when used in conjunction with the biotinylated XMG1.2 antibody (Cat. No. 505804) as the detecting antibody and recombinant mouse IFN-? (Cat. No. 575309) as the standard. The Ultra-LEAF™ purified antibody is suggested for ELISPOT capture. For ELISPOT Capture, the suggested use of this antibody is 1.0 - 4.0 µg/mL.
ELISA or ELISPOT Detection: The biotinylated R4-6A2 antibody is useful as the detecting antibody in a sandwich ELISA or ELISPOT assay, when used in conjunction with the purified XMG1.2 antibody (Cat. Nos. 505802 & 505812) as the capture antibody and recombinant mouse IFN-? (Cat. No. 575309) as the standard.
Neutralization1,2,9: The Ultra-LEAF™ purified antibody (Endotoxin <0.01 EU/µg, Azide-Free, 0.2 µm filtered) is recommended for neutralization of mouse IFN-? bioactivity in vivo and in vitro (Cat. Nos. 505708 - 505713).
Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: immunohistochemical staining3,6,8 of acetone-fixed frozen tissue sections.
Note: For testing mouse IFN-? in serum, plasma or supernatant, BioLegend's ELISA Max™ Sets (Cat. No. 430801 and 430804) are specially developed and recommended.
