ICFC - Quality tested

Application Notes: ELISA or ELISPOT Capture1-5,8: The purified MP2-8F8 antibody is useful as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA or ELISPOT assay, when used in conjunction with the biotinylated MP2-43D11 antibody as the detecting antibody.
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 ≤ 0.25 µg per 106 cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

PMA+Ionomycin stimulated Th2-polarized C57BL/6 splenocytes

PMA+Ionomycin stimulated Th2-polarized C57BL/6 splenocytes surface stained with CD4 (GK1.5) APC and intracellularly stained with MP2-8F8 PE

Description: IL-3 is a highly species-specific pleiotropic factor produced primarily by activated T cells though also by mast cells keratinocytes, and astrocytes, which stimulates colony formation of megakaryocytes, neutrophils, and macrophages from bone marrow cultures. The MP2-8F8 antibody reacts with mouse interleukin-3 (IL-3). The MP2-8F8 antibody can neutralize the bioactivity of natural or recombinant IL-3.
Other Names: Interleukin-3, Burst promoting activity (BP/BPA), Eosinophil colony stimulating factor (Eo-CSF), Hematopoietic cell growth factor (HCGF), Mast cell growth factor (MGF/MCGF), Multi-colony stimulating factor (Multi-CSF), P cell stimulating activity (PCSA),
Structure: Cytokine; 28 kD (Mammalian)
Regulation: Upregulated by T cell stimulation; downregulated by glucocorticoids
Cellular Sources: Activated T cells, mast cells, eosinophils, keratinocytes, NK cells, endothelial cells
Cellular Targets: Erythroid cells, megakaryocytes, neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils, mast cells, monocytic lineages
Receptors: Heterodimer IL-3Rα (CD123) and two alternate β-subunits, AIC2A binds IL-3 and is specific to IL-3Rα, AIC2B (CDw131) shared in common with IL-5R, GM-CSFR
Bioactivity/Activities: Proliferation/differentiation of almost all types of hematopoietic progenitors into granulocytes, macrophages, erythroid cells, megakaryocytes, mast cell colonies; induces expression of 20-α-steroid dehydrogenase, histidine, ornithine decarboxylase
