Rabbit anti Human Interleukin-4 antibody recognizes human IL-4 (Interleukin-4), also known as B-cell stimulatory factor 1, a 129 amino acid pleiotropic cytokine which interacts with multiple cell lineages, including T cells, fibroblasts and haematopoietic cells, and is one of the most important factors involved in B cell IgG1 and IgE class switching.

IL-4 signalling through the IL-4 receptor (IL-4R), under the influence of Stat6, induces the differentiation of CD4+ T cells into Th2 helper cells, which themselves then secrete IL-4 along with IL-5, IL-6, IL-10 and IL-13. Excessive secretion of IL-4 by Th2 helper cells has been linked with allergy and elevated IgE levels.

Target Species
Human
Product Form
Purified IgG - lyophilized
Reconstitution
Reconstitute with 0.1ml distilled water.
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. NB: For functional studies do not add azide.
Antiserum Preparation
Antisera to human IL-4 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
Yes
Approx. Protein Concentrations
IgG concentration 1.0mg/ml after reconstitution.
Regulatory
For research purposes only
Guarantee
