3120525 25 µg $85.00       
3120530 100 µg $245.00       
Clone: 11B11
Isotype: Rat IgG1, κ
Reactivity: Mouse
Immunogen: Partially purified native mouse IL-4
Formulation: Phosphate-buffered solution, pH 7.2, containing 0.09% sodium azide.
Preparation: The antibody was purified by affinity chromatography, and conjugated with APC under optimal conditions. The solution is free of unconjugated APC and unconjugated antibody.
Concentration: 0.2 mg/ml
Storage & Handling: The antibody solution should be stored undiluted between 2°C and 8°C, and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
Application:

ICFC - Quality tested

Application Notes:

ELISA1,2,10,13 or ELISPOT5 Capture: The purified 11B11 antibody is useful as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA or ELISPOT assay, when used in conjunction with the biotinylated BVD6-24G2 antibody as the detecting antibody and recombinant mouse IL-4 as the standard.

Recommended Usage:

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by intracellular immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤1.0 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

PMA+ionomycin-stimulated (6 hours, in presence

PMA+ionomycin-stimulated (6 hours, in presence of brefeldin A) Th2-polarized C57BL/6 CD4-positive cells were surface stained with CD3 PE and then intracellularly stained with IL-4 (11B11) APC (top) or rat IgG1, κ APC isotype control (bottom).





Description:

IL-4 is a pleiotropic cytokine produced by activated T cells, mast cells, and basophils. IL-4 is a potent lymphoid cell growth factor which stimulates the growth and activation of certain B cells and T cells. IL-4 is important for regulation of T helper subset development.

Other Names: Interleukin-4, Ia inducing factor (IaIF), B cell stimulating factor-1 (BSF-1), Hodgkin's cell growth factor (HCGF), Mast cell growth factor-2 (MCGF-2), Macrophage fusion factor (MFF), T cell growth factor-2 (TCGF-2)
Structure: Cytokine; 15-19 kD (Mammalian)
Regulation: Upregulated by IL-2, platelet activating factor; downregulated by TGF-β
Cellular Sources: Mast cells, T cells, bone marrow stromal cells
Cellular Targets: B cells, T cells, monocytes, endothelial cells, fibroblasts
Receptors: Heterodimer IL-4Rα (CD124); γ-subunit (CD132) in common with IL-2R, IL-7R, IL-13R, IL-15R
Bioactivity/Activities: Differentiation of naïve CD4+ T cells to the TH2 type, proliferation/differentiation of activated B cells, expression of class II MHC antigens, and of low affinity IgE receptors in resting B cells
