The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Application notesNeutralization:To yield one-half maximal inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of mIL-10 (2.5 ng/ml), a concentration of 0.012 - 0.014 µg/ml of this antibody is required.
ELISA:To detect mIL-10 by direct ELISA (using 100µl/well antibody solution) a concentration of at least 0.5µg/ml of this antibody is required. This antigen affinity purified antibody, in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents, allows the detection of 0.2 - 0.4 ng/well of recombinant mIL-10.
Western Blot:To detect mIL-10 by Western Blot analysis this antibody can be used at a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml. Used in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents the detection limit for recombinant mIL-10 is 1.5 - 3.0 ng/lane, under either reducing or non-reducing conditions.
FunctionInhibits the synthesis of a number of cytokines, including IFN-gamma, IL-2, IL-3, TNF and GM-CSF produced by activated macrophages and by helper T-cells.
Tissue specificityProduced by a variety of cell lines, including T-cells, macrophages, mast cells and other cell types.
