ab11412 recognises both natural and recombinant human interferon gamma, binding only to the dimeric (functional) form.
Clone D9D10 has been reported to neutralise the activity of natural and recombinant IFN gamma. The removal of sodium azide is recommended for functional assays.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
1/10 - 1/100.
Use 10 µl of the suggested working dilution to label 1 x 106 cells in 100 µl.
ab170190 - Mouse monoclonal IgG1, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
Use at an assay dependent concentration. Use under non reducing condition. Predicted molecular weight: 19.9 kDa.
Use under non reducing conditions.
Produced by lymphocytes activated by specific antigens or mitogens. IFN-gamma, in addition to having antiviral activity, has important immunoregulatory functions. It is a potent activator of macrophages, it has antiproliferative effects on transformed cells and it can potentiate the antiviral and antitumor effects of the type I interferons.
Released primarily from activated T lymphocytes.
Involvement in disease
In Caucasians, genetic variation in IFNG is associated with the risk of aplastic anemia (AA) [MIM:609135]. AA is a rare disease in which the reduction of the circulating blood cells results from damage to the stem cell pool in bone marrow. In most patients, the stem cell lesion is caused by an autoimmune attack. T-lymphocytes, activated by an endogenous or exogenous, and most often unknown antigenic stimulus, secrete cytokines, including IFN-gamma, which would in turn be able to suppress hematopoiesis.
Belongs to the type II (or gamma) interferon family.
Proteolytic processing produces C-terminal heterogeneity, with proteins ending alternatively at Gly-150, Met-157 or Gly-161.
