IFN-gamma is produced by lymphocytes in response to activation by specific antigens or mitogens. In addition to its anti-viral activity, IFN-gamma has important immunoregulatory functions in the activation of macrophages and anti-proliferative effects upon transformed cells.
- Intended Use
- Bovine Interferon gamma ELISA KIt (MCA5638KZZ) is an ELISA kit (5 x 96 wells) designed for the quantitive determination of bovine interferon gamma (BoIFN-gamma) in bovine serum, plasma and culture supernatant.
This assay can measure BoIFN-gamma in the range 0.025-50 ng/ml in bovine serum, plasma and culture supernatant. Detailed instructions for use of the kit can be found here.
- Target Species
- Reagents in the Kit
- 96 well microtiter plates x 5
Microplate adhesive sealers x 5
Coating antibody - 1vial (MCA5638KZZA)
Coating Buffer - 1 vial (5 x concentrated)
Detection antibody – Biotin conjugated - 1 vial (MCA5638KZZC)
Streptavidin:HRP conjugate - 1 vial (MCA5638KZZD)
TMB Substrate 1 vial
Bovine IFN gamma standard (400ng/ml – Lyophilized) 1 vial (MCA5638KZZB)
- Test Principle
- This assay is based on a sandwich ELISA using two different mouse anti bovine IFN-gamma monoclonal antibodies and a recombinant bovine IFN-gamma as a standard.
- Additional Reagents Required
- The following additional reagents and Equipment are also required for successful use of this kits BUT ARE NOT CONTAINED WITHIN THIS KIT
Wash buffer (available from Bio-Rad, BUF031A, or see kit insert for recipe)
Blocking solution (available from Bio-Rad, Catalogue Code: BUF032A, or see kit insert for recipe)
Stop Solution (see kit insert for recipe)
Distilled or Deionised water
Plate reader with 450nm reading capacity
Pipettes for dispensing up to 250ul
Tubes for preparing standard and sample dilutions.
- Prior to use store all kit components at +4oC. DO NOT FREEZE. Please view the handbook for further details.
Storage in frost free freezers is not recommended. This Kit contains components that are photosensitive and should be protected from light. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature components within this kit.
The contents of this kit should be stored undiluted. Should components within this kit contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
