Anti-Rat IFNγ (Clone 88915)
Pricing & Details
E. coli-Derived Recombinant Rat Interferon-γ
<0.1 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method
This monoclonal antibody has been 0.2 µm filtered and lyophilized from modified Dulbecco's phosphate buffered saline (1X PBS) pH 7.2 - 7.3 containing 5.0% w/v trehalose with no calcium, magnesium or preservatives present.
Storage and Handling
The lyophilized antibody can be stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C for up to twelve months. The reconstituted antibody can be stored for at least four weeks at 2-8°C. For long-term storage of the reconstituted antibody, aseptically aliquot into working volumes and store at -20°C to -70°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. No detectable loss of activity was observed after six months.

Applications and Recommended Usage?
Quality Tested by Leinco
Western Blotting: To detect Rat IFN-γ this monoclonal antibody can be used at a concentration of 1-2 µg/ml. This monoclonal antibody should be used in conjunction with compatible second-step reagents such as PN:M114 and a chromogenic substrate such as PN:T343. The detection limit for Rat IFN-γ is 10 ng/lane under either reducing or non-reducing conditions. The sensitivity of detection may increase up to 50 fold when a chemiluminescent substrate is used.
Other Applications Reported In Literature ?
Neutralization: This antibody is useful for neutralization of Rat IFN-γ bioactivity. The antibody dose required to neutralize 50% (ND50) of the biological activity of Rat IFN-γ (at 2.5 ng/ml) is 0.5 - 1.5 µg/ml.
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
Mouse Anti-Rat Interferon Gamma (IFN-γ) (Clone 88915) recognizes an epitope on Rat IFN-γ. This monoclonal antibody was purified using multi-step affinity chromatography methods such as Protein A or G depending on the species and isotype. This antibody shows less than 1% cross-reactivity with rmIFN-γ and no cross-reactivity rhIFN-γ.
Interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) or type II interferon is a dimerized soluble cytokine that is the only member of the type II class of interferons.1 It is a cytokine critical for innate and adaptive immunity against viral and intracellular bacterial infections and for tumor control. IFNG is produced predominantly by natural killer (NK) and natural killer T (NKT) cells as part of the innate immune response, and by CD4 and CD8 cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) effector T cells once antigen-specific immunity develops.2 IFN-γ has antiviral, immunoregulatory, and anti-tumour properties.3
