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 hIL-3 (2.0 ng/ml), a concentration of 0.06 - 0.1 µg/ml of this antibody is required.
ELISA:To detect hIL-3 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 hIL-3.
Western Blot:To detect hIL-3 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 hIL-3 is 1.5 - 3.0 ng/lane, under either reducing or non-reducing conditions.
FunctionGranulocyte/macrophage colony-stimulating factors are cytokines that act in hematopoiesis by controlling the production, differentiation, and function of 2 related white cell populations of the blood, the granulocytes and the monocytes-macrophages. This CSF induces granulocytes, macrophages, mast cells, stem cells, erythroid cells, eosinophils and megakaryocytes.
