M161B targets IL-16 in ELISA, and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The M161B immunogen is recombinant human IL-16.
M161B detects IL-16 which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 142 kDa.
The M161B IL16 antibody (biotinylated conjugate of clone 14.1) has successfully been paired as the detection antibody in a sandwich ELISA with capture antibody M160E (clone 17.1) Typical dilutions for sandwich ELISA include 1 µg/ml for coating and 0.125 - 0.25 µg/ml for detection.
Biotinylated antibody M161B (clone 14.1) and antibody M160E (clone 17.1) have successfully been used in combination with recombinant IL16 protein SIL16 in ELISA applications.
The protein encoded by this gene is a pleiotropic cytokine that functions as a chemoattractant, a modulator of T cell activation, and an inhibitor of HIV replication. The signaling process of this cytokine is mediated by CD4. The product of this gene undergoes proteolytic processing, which is found to yield two functional proteins. The cytokine function is exclusively attributed to the secreted C-terminal peptide, while the N-terminal product may play a role in cell cycle control. Caspase 3 is reported to be involved in the proteolytic processing of this protein. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
