Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab9855 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notesNeutralization:To yield one-half maximal inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of mIL-2 (2.0 ng/ml), a concentration of 0.04 - 0.05 µg/ml of this antibody is required.

    ELISA:To detect mIL-2 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-2.

    Western Blot:To detect mIL-2 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-2 is 1.5 - 3.0 ng/lane, under either reducing or non-reducing conditions. Predicted molecular weight in Human: 15 kDa.
  • Target

    • FunctionProduced by T-cells in response to antigenic or mitogenic stimulation, this protein is required for T-cell proliferation and other activities crucial to regulation of the immune response. Can stimulate B-cells, monocytes, lymphokine-activated killer cells, natural killer cells, and glioma cells.
    • Involvement in diseaseNote=A chromosomal aberration involving IL2 is found in a form of T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL). Translocation t(4;16)(q26;p13) with involves TNFRSF17.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the IL-2 family.
    • Cellular localizationSecreted.

    Murine IL-2 has a molecular weight of approx. 17.2 kDa but due to O-linked glycosilation may run slightly higher. We are not aware of any reports in which a 30kDa band is detected for Murine IL2 from mouse tissues. Have you tried running recombi...
