IL-3 is a highly species-specific pleiotropic factor produced primarily by activated T cells though also by mast cells, keratinocytes, and astrocytes, which stimulates colony formation of megakaryocytes, neutrophils, and macrophages from bone marrow cultures. The BVD3-1F9 antibody can neutralize the bioactivity of natural or recombinant IL-3.Product Details
- Antibody Type
- Host Species
- Yeast-expressed, recombinant human IL-3
µg format: Phosphate-buffered solution, pH 7.2, containing 0.09% sodium azide.
Test format: Phosphate-buffered solution, pH 7.2, containing 0.09% sodium azide, 0.2% (w/v) BSA (USA origin).

ICFC - Quality tested
- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by intracellular immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is 5 µl per million cells in 100 µl staining volume or 5 µl per 100 µl of whole blood.
- Excitation Laser
Blue Laser (488 nm)
Green Laser (532 nm)/Yellow-Green Laser (561 nm)
- Application Notes
ELISA1-3,6 or ELISPOT4 Detection: The biotinylated BVD3-1F9 antibody is useful as a detection antibody for a sandwich ELISA or ELISPOT assay, when used in conjunction with purified BVD8-3G11 (Cat. No. 500502) antibody as the capture antibody.
Flow Cytometry: The fluorochrome-labelled BVD3-1F9 antibody is useful for intracellular immunofluorescent staining and flow cytometric analysis to identify IL-3 -producing cells within mixed cell populations.
