Interleukin 12 (IL-12) is a heterodimeric pleiotropic 70 kD (p70) cytokine consisting of a 40 kD (p40) subunit and a 35 kD (p35) subunit. IL-12 is a potent regulator of cell-mediated immune responses and key mediator of Th1 cell development. Bioactive IL-12 is secreted by activated B lymphocytes, dendritic cells, and macrophages in response to pathogens or upon interaction with activated T cells.IL-12 p70 stimulates cytotoxic T, NK and LAK cell proliferation, andinduces IFN-γ and TNF production in resting and activated T and NK cells.It has been suggested that IL-12 may have therapeutic potential as a vaccine adjuvant that promotes cellular-immunity and as an anti-tumor and anti-viral agent.Product Details
- Verified Reactivity
- Antibody Type
- Host Species
- CHO expressed, recombinant mouse IL-12 p70
- Phosphate-buffered solution, pH 7.2, containing 0.09% sodium azide.
- The antibody was purified by affinity chromatography.
- 0.5 mg/ml
- Storage & Handling
- The antibody solution should be stored undiluted between 2°C and 8°C.
- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by ELISA assay. For use as an ELISA capture antibody, a concentration range of 1-4 µg/ml is recommended. To obtain a linear standard curve, serial dilutions of IL-12(p70) recombinant protein ranging from 500 to 4 pg/ml are recommended for each ELISA plate. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
ELISA Capture: The purified C18.2 antibody is useful as a capture antibody for a sandwich ELISA assay, when used in conjunction with the biotinylated C17.8 antibody as detection antibody and recombinant mouse IL-12 p70 as the standard.
