Specificity: This non-therapeutic biosimilar antibody uses the same variable region sequence as the therapeutic antibody Briakinumab. Briakinumab recognizes both human IL12 and IL23 via IL-12/23p40. This product is for research use only.
Endotoxin Level: ≤ 1.0 EU/mg as determined by the LAL method. Purity: ≥95% monomer by analytical SEC.
Product Preparation: Functional grade preclinical antibodies are manufactured in an animal free facility using only In vitro protein free cell culture techniques and are purified by a multi-step process including the use of protein A or G to assure extremely low levels of endotoxins, leachable protein A or aggregates. Pathogen Testing: To protect mouse colonies from infection by pathogens and to assure that experimental preclinical data is not affected by such pathogens, all of Leinco recombinant biosimilar antibodies are tested and guaranteed to be negative for all pathogens in the IDEXX IMPACT I Mouse Profile.
Storage and Handling: Functional grade biosimilar antibodies may be stored sterile as received at 2-8 C for up to one month. For longer term storage, aseptically aliquot in working volumes without diluting and store at -80 C. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles.
This antibody has been tested in the following applications: Western Blotting, Neutralization, Immunoprecipitation, Immunofluorescence, Functional Assay, Flow Cytometry, ELISA, Blocking.
Briakinumab is a human anti-IL-12 monoclonal antibody being developed for the treatment of a number of T-cell driven autoimmune diseases. It targets and neutralize interleukin-12 and interleukin-23, two proteins associated with inflammation, such as pro-inflammatory interleukins or tumor necrosis factor- alpha. Briakinumab represents a novel approach to treating psoriasis, Multiple Sclerosis, Crohn's Disease and other autoimmune and inflammatory disorders. As of 2011 pharmaceutical development for psoriasis has been discontinued in the U. S. and Europe. Briakinumab targets and neutralizes interleukin-12 and interleukin-23.
