Description: The C17.8 antibody reacts with the p40 subunit of IL-12 and IL-23. The C17.8 antibody has been found to neutralize IL-12 and IL-23 bioactivity. For specific neutralization of IL-23 only, please see clone G23-8 (anti-mouse IL-23 p19). IL-12 is a 70 kDa heterodimeric cytokine composed of two covalently linked chains, p40 and p35, and is secreted by activated monocytes, macrophages, and dendritic cells. IL-23 is a heterodimer composed of the disulfide-linked p19 protein and p40 protein, expressed by activated dendritic cells.
Applications Reported: The C17.8 antibody has been reported for use in IP, Western, ELISA, neutralization, and intracellular staining for flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This C17.8 antibody is offered in 2 formats: - µg size: has been tested by intracellular flow cytometric analysis of stimulated mouse cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.25 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. - test size: has been pre-titrated and tested by intracellular flow cytometric analysis of stimulated mouse cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.25 µg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test.

IL-23 is a member of the IL-12 cytokine family which is produced by dendritic cells and other antigen presenting cells in the peripheral tissues. This cytokine is a heterodimer composed of an IL-12p40 subunit, and a p19 subunit. IL-23 plays an important role in stimulating memory T-cells. It is also required for the induction, expansion, maintenance, and downstream effector functions of Th17 cells. Th17 cells play a vital role in upregulating neutrophil chemokines and various pro-inflammatory cytokines. IL-23 interacts with the receptors IL-12R beta1 and IL-23R to activate the Jak-Stat signaling cascade.
