Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab9918 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
Sandwich ELISA Use a concentration of 0.5 - 2 µg/ml. Can be paired for Sandwich ELISA with Rabbit polyclonal to Interferon gamma (Biotin) (ab83136). This antigen affinity purified antibody, in conjunction with recommended pair as a detection antibody, allows the detection of at least 0.2 - 0.4 ng/well of recombinant mIFN-gamma. Can be used as capture antibody when paired with ab83136.
WB Use a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml.
ELISA Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml. Allows the detection of 0.2 - 0.4 ng/well of recombinant mIFN-g.
Neutralising Use a concentration of 0.004 - 0.006 µg/ml. for one-half maximal inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of mIFN-g (50 pg/ml).


  • Function
    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.
  • Tissue specificity
    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.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the type II (or gamma) interferon family.
  • Post-translational
    Proteolytic processing produces C-terminal heterogeneity, with proteins ending alternatively at Gly-150, Met-157 or Gly-161.
