Store vial at 4° C prior to restoration. For extended storage aliquot contents and freeze at -20° C or below. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing. Centrifuge product if not completely clear after standing at room temperature. This product is stable for several weeks at 4° C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use.
This purified antibody has been heated to 56°C for 30 minutes. In ELISA and other immunoreactive assays, this antibody will recognize both native and recombinant human IL-9 in cell supernatants and certain body fluids. A control of similarly diluted normal rabbit IgG is recommended.
Interleukin 9 (IL-9) is produced by activated T helper 2 (Th2) lymphocytes. IL-9 regulates many cell types involved in classical Th2-associated asthma responses, including B and T lymphocytes, mast cells, eosinophils, and epithelial cells. The mouse IL-9 cDNA encodes a 144 amino acid precursor protein with an 18 amino acid signal peptide that is cleaved to form the mature cysteine-rich protein with a molecular mass of 14 kDa. Native mouse IL-9 is heavily glycosylated. Recently, TGF beta has been reported to play an important role in the differentiation of IL-17-producing T helper cells and inducible regulatory T cells by reprogramming Th2 cells to secrete IL-9, thereby driving the differentiation of Th9 cells directly.
