M600B targets IL-2 in ELISA, and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The M600B immunogen is recombinant human IL-2.
M600B detects IL-2 which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 15 kDa.
The M600B IL2 antibody (biotinylated conjugate of clone BG5) has successfully been paired as the detection antibody in a sandwich ELISA with polyclonal capture antibody P600. Typical dilutions for sandwich ELISA include 1 µg/mL for coating and 0.125 - 0.25 µg/mL for detection.
Biotinylated antibody M600B (clone BG5) and antibody P600 have successfully been used in combination with recombinant IL2 protein SIL2 in ELISA applications.
Interleukin 2 (IL-2) is an immuno-modulatory cytokine that is important for the proliferation of activated T cells, differentiation of B cells, natural killer cells, monocytes and macrophages. IL-2 signals through the IL-2 receptor (IL-2R), a heterotrimeric protein complex whose gamma chain is also shared by interleukin 4 (IL-4) and interleukin 7 (IL-7). The expression of the IL-2 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 gene similar to IL-2 in mice leads to an ulcerative colitis-like disease that suggests an essential role of this gene in the immune response to antigenic stimuli.
