Applications and Recommended Usage?
Quality Tested by Leinco
FC The suggested concentration for Ipilimumab biosimilar antibody for staining cells in flow cytometry is ≤ 1.0 μg per 106 cells in a volume of 100 μl. Titration of the reagent is recommended for optimal performance for each application.
Additional Reported Applications For Relevant Conjugates ?
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
This non-therapeutic biosimilar antibody uses the same variable region sequence as the therapeutic antibody Ipilimumab. Ipilimumab binds to Human CTLA-4. This product is for research use only.
CTLA4 is constitutively expressed in regulatory T cells.
Cytotoxic T-lymphocyte–associated antigen 4 (CTLA-4) is a protein receptor that serves as an immune checkpoint and down-regulates the immune system. CTLA-4 is constitutively expressed in regulatory T cells but is only upregulated in conventional T cells following activation. Many cancers, including Melanoma, are associated with CTLA-4 upregulation because the body’s ability to recognize and destroy cancer cells is hampered by an inhibitory mechanism. Ipilimumab targets CTLA-4 and works by turning off this inhibitory mechanism and, thus, enhances the body’s own immune response against cancer cells.”2 Emerging research suggests that combined blockade of PD-1 and CTLA-4, with Nivolumab and Ipilimumab respectively, could produce greater antitumor activity than blockade of either pathway alone.1 This cost-effective, research-grade Anti-Human CTLA-4 (Ipilimumab) utilizes the same variable regions from the therapeutic antibody Ipilimumab making it ideal for research projects.
