Sandwich ELISA analysis of mouse IL-2 was performed using the a Mouse IL-2 Colorimetric ELISA Kit (Product # EMIL2) by loading 50 ul per well of an anti-mouse IL-2 monoclonal antibody (Product # MM100) in quadruplicate at 0 (blue line), 50% (2.5 ug/ml, red line), and 100% (5 ug/ml, green line) displacement in a plate and then loading 50 ul per well of Mouse IL-2 Recombinant Protein (Product # SMIL2) in dodecuplicate at 850, 170, 34, and 0 pg/ml across a 5 ug/ml Mouse IL-2 (Product # MM101) pre-coated plate and incubating for 2 hours at 37°C. The plate was washed, then incubated with 100 ul per well of an HRP-conjugated rat anti-mouse IL-2 antibody at a 1:25,000 dilution for 1 hour at 37°C. Detection was performed using TMB substrate solution for 30 minutes at room temperature in the dark. The plate was then stopped with 0.16M sulfuric acid and absorbance was read on a spectrophotometer at 450-550 nm.

MM101 targets IL-2 in ELISA, and WB applications and shows reactivity with mouse samples.
The MM101 immunogen is recombinant mouse IL-2.
MM101 detects IL-2 which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 17 kDa.
The MM101 mouse IL2 antibody (clone 5H4) has successfully been paired as the coating antibody in a sandwich ELISA with detection antibody MM102B (biotinylated conjugate of clone 1A12). Typical dilutions for sandwich ELISA include 1 µg/ml for coating and 0.125 - 0.25 µg/ml for detection.
Antibody MM101 (clone 5H4) and biotinylated antibody MM102B (clone 1A12) have successfully been used in combination with recombinant mouse IL2 protein SMIL2 in ELISA applications.
This antibody is produced by injecting Rat IgG secreting hybridoma cells into the peritoneum of mice. The resulting ascites is collected from the mice and the antibody is purified.
The protein encoded by this gene is a secreted cytokine that is important for the proliferation of T and B lymphocytes. The receptor of this cytokine is a heterotrimeric protein complex whose gamma chain is also shared by interleukin 4 (IL4) and interleukin 7 (IL7). The expression of this gene in mature thymocytes is monoallelic, which represents an unusual regulatory mode for controlling the precise expression of a single gene. The targeted disruption of a similar gene in mice leads to ulcerative colitis-like disease, which suggests an essential role of this gene in the immune response to antigenic stimuli.
