Purified Recombinant Rat IL-5 (Accession # Q08125)
Formulation
This biotinylated antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody has been 0.2 µm filtered and lyophilized from modified Dulbecco’s phosphate buffered saline (1X PBS) pH 7.2 – 7.3 containing 50 µg of bovine serum albumin per µg of antibody with no calcium, magnesium, or preservatives present.
Storage and Handling
The lyophilized, biotinylated antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody can be stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C for up to twelve months from date of receipt. The reconstituted biotin conjugate can be stored for at least four weeks at 2-8°C. For long-term storage of the reconstituted conjugate, 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 IL-5 this biotin conjugate can be used at a concentration of 0.1-0.2 µg/ml. This biotin conjugate should be used in conjunction with compatible second-step reagents such as PN:A106 and a chromogenic substrate such as PN:T343. The detection limit for Rat IL-5 is 5 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. A suitable Western blotting control is PN:I-534.

Description

Specificity
Goat Anti-Rat Interleukin 5 (IL-5) recognizes Rat IL-5. This antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody was purified using a proprietary chromatographic technique that includes covalently immobilizing the antigen proteins or peptides to agarose based beads. This purification method enhances specificity, reduces nonspecific binding of extraneous IgG and provides you with the most reliable reagent available for your early discovery research.
Background
IL-5 is a 26 kD TH2 cytokine and a homodimeric glycoprotein that is part of the hematopoietic family. IL-5 stimulates B cell growth as well as increases Ig secretion. It is the main factor that promotes the terminal differentiation of eosinophil progenitors and enhances the effector capacity of mature eosinophils. IL-5 is a major regulator of eosinophil accumulation in tissues. In fact, in Hodgkin lymphoma, the characteristically observed eosinophilia is suspected to result from an increased production of IL-5. IL-5 may also be the cause of several allergic diseases including asthma, where it is thought that eosinophils have a significant role in the disease pathology. There are several mAbs currently in use that target IL-5 for the treatment of severe eosinophilic asthma.
