This antibody detects rhesus macaque IL-18/IL-1F4 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In Western blots, approximately 10% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse IL-18, recombinant rat IL-18, and recombinant porcine IL-18 is observed.
Reconstitute at 0.2 mg/mL in sterile PBS.
Endoxin level is <0.10 EU per 1 µg of the antibody by the LAL method.
The protein encoded by this gene is a proinflammatory cytokine. This cytokine can induce the IFN-gamma production of T cells. The combination of this cytokine and IL12 has been shown to inhibit IL4 dependent IgE and IgG1 production, and enhance IgG2a production of B cells. IL-18 binding protein can specifically interact with this cytokine, and thus negatively regulate its biological activity.
