Rabbit anti Human Interleukin-2 antibody recognizes human IL-2 (Interleukin-2), otherwise known as T-cell growth factor, a 133 amino acid glycoprotein and potent immunoregulatory cytokine produced by antigen or mitogen stimulated T cells.

IL-2 is a multi-functional cytokine which signals through the IL-2 receptor complex (IL-2R), and is principally involved in the stimulation of the T cell proliferative response, promoting T cell clonal expansion and the expansion of T memory cells expressing low levels of high-affinity IL-2R.

IL-2 also stimulates the growth/differentiation of B cells, monocytes, NK cells, macrophages and lymphokine activated killer cells.

Target Species
Product Form
Purified IgG conjugated to Biotin - lyophilized
Reconstitute with 0.5 ml sterile PBS containing 0.1% Bovine Serum Albumin.
Care should be taken during reconstitution as the protein may appear as a film at the bottom of the vial. Bio-Rad recommend that the vial is gently mixed after reconstitution. For long term storage the addition of 0.09% sodium azide is recommended.
Antiserum Preparation
Antisera to human IL-2 were raised by repeated immunisations of rabbits with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG prepared by affinity chromatography.
Buffer Solution
Phosphate buffered saline
Preservative Stabilisers
None present
Carrier Free
Approx. Protein Concentrations
IgG concentration 0.1 mg/ml after reconstituiton.
For research purposes only
12 months from date of despatch

Prior to reconstitution store at -20°C.
After reconstitution store at -20°C.

This product should be stored undiluted. Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
