Mouse anti Bovine interleukin-4 antibody, clone CC314 recognizes bovine intetleukin-4 (IL-4), also known as B-cell stimulatory factor 1. IL-4 is expressed by a range of cells including T and B cells, macrophages and monocytes. It plays an important role in the regulation of bovine T and B cell responses. Bovine interleukin-4 is a 15 kDa, 135 amino acid peptide which is processed to a mature secreted form with the cleavage of a 24 amino acid, N-terminal signal peptide resulting in a 12.6 kDa active cytokine, the apparent MW may be altered by glycosylation (Heussler et al. 1992).

IL-4 is expressed by a range of cells including T and B cells, macrophages and monocytes. It plays an important role in the regulation of bovine T and B cell responses.

Mouse anti Bovine interleukin-4, clone CC314 has been used successfully as a detection antibody in a sandwich ELISA with Mouse anti Bovine IL-4 antibody, clone CC313 (MCA2371) as a coating reagent both with bovine (Stabel et al. 2011) and ovine samples (Olivier et al. 2012). Clones CC313 and CC314 have been used in the reverse configuration for the measurement of interleukin-4 in caprine samples (Marinaro et al. 2012).
