The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 23 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 25 kDa).
FunctionMay play a role in the regulation of immune cell function. Cytokine that imparts cellular protection against viral infection in a species-specific manner. Activates the interferon-stimulated response element signaling pathway. It is able to directly modulate cytokine release from monocytes and dendritic cells. Binds heparin.
Tissue specificityExpressed in keratinocytes, monocytes and in resting dendritic cells.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the alpha/beta interferon family.
