Rat anti mouse IL-5, clone TRFK5
recognizes mouse interleukin-5
. IL-5 is a regulatory cytokine that induces terminal differentiation of late-developing B-cells to immunoglobulin secreting cells.
Rat anti mouse IL-5, clone TRFK5 may be used to neutralize IL-5 bioactivity in a functional assay (Schumacher. et al. 1988
) and Abrams et al. 1992

Applications of IL-5 antibody
|Flow Cytometry 1
- 1 Membrane permeabilisation is required for this application. Bio-Rad recommends the use of Leucoperm™ (Product Code BUF09) for this purpose.
Where this antibody has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
