M122 targets IL-12 in ELISA, and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The M122 immunogen is recombinant human IL-12 (p70).
M122 detects IL-12 which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 23 kDa.
The M122 IL12 antibody (clone 20C2) has successfully been paired as the coating antibody in a sandwich ELISA with detection antibody M121B (biotinylated conjugate of clone C8.6) Typical dilutions for sandwich ELISA include 1 µg/mL for coating and 0.125 - 0.25 µg/mL for detection.
Antibody M122 (clone 20C2) and biotinylated antibody M121B (clone C8.6) have successfully been used in combination with recombinant IL12 p70 protein SIL12 in ELISA applications.
This product has been tested for endotoxins by limulus amoebocyte lysate (LAL) assay and contains an endotoxin concentration of less than or equal to 10 endotoxin units per milligram (EU/mg).
Interleukin-12 (IL-12) is a heterodimeric 70 kDa cytokine composed of two covalently linked, glycosylated chains with molecular weights of 40kD (p40) and 35-kD (p35). IL-12 is mainly produced by monocytes, macrophages, and dendritic cells in response to bacterial products such as lipopolysaccharides (LPS), to intracellular pathogens or upon interaction with activated T cells. IL-12 was originally discovered because of its ability to induce interferon-gamma (IFN-g) production, cell proliferation, and cytotoxicity mediated by natural killer cells and T cells. Studies have established that IL-12 also plays a key role in the development of Th1 responses, leading to IFN-g and IL-2 production. These cytokines can in turn promote T-cell responses and macrophage activation. Recombinant mouse IL-12 p70 is produced in baculovirus-infected insect cells as an authentic heterodimer of precursor p35 and p40 subunits using a dual promoter expression system. IL-12 p70 is distinct from other available forms of the protein in that it is expressed as a true heterodimer, as opposed to a single-chain, pseudo-heterodimer in which the subunits are joined by an artificial linker. The responses of lymphocytes to this cytokine are mediated by the activator of transcription protein STAT4. Nitric oxide synthase 2A (NOS2A/NOS2) is found to be required for the signaling process of this cytokine in innate immunity. Human and mouse IL-12 p40 share about 70% amino acid sequence homology.
