Store undiluted at 4°C. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.

Recommended Assay Procedures

ELISA Capture: The purified monoclonal antibody B8-11 is useful as a capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA for measuring human MIG protein levels. Purified monoclonal antibody B8-11 can be paired with the biotinylated monoclonal antibody B8-6 (Cat. No. 555037) with recombinant human MIG (Cat. No. 554636) as the standard. Purified monoclonal antibody B8-11 should be titrated to determine optimal concentration for ELISA capture (0.5-4.0 µg/ml). To obtain linear standard curves, doubling dilutions of human MIG ranging from ~2,500 to 39 pg/ml are recommended for inclusion in each ELISA plate. For specific methodology, please visit the protocols section or chapter on ELISA in the Immune Function Handbook, both of which are posted on our web site,

This ELISA pair shows no cross-reactivity with any of the cytokines tested ( human IL-1α, IL-1β, IL-2, IL-3, IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, IL-7, IL-8, IL-9, IL-10, IL-11, IL-13, IL- 15, IL-16, eotaxin, G-CSF, GM-CSF, GROα, GROβ, GROγ, IFN-γ, IP-10, lymphotactin, MCP-1, MCP-2, MCP-3, MCP-4, MIP-1α, MIP-1β, NAP-2, PF-4, RANTES, TNF, LT-α).  

This ELISA pair is recommended primarily for measuring cytokine from experimental cell culture systems. These ELISA reagents are not recommended for assay of serum samples. The BD OptEIA™ ELISA set (Cat. No. 550998) is specially-formulated for cytokine measurement in complex fluids such as serum and plasma.

Immunofluorescent Staining and Flow Cytometric Analysis: The B8-11antibody is useful for intracellular immunofluorescent staining and flow cytometric analysis to identify and enumerate MIG producing cells within mixed cell populations. The PE-conjugated B8-11 antibody (Cat. No. 566013) is especially suitable for these studies.  

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

The B8-11 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes monokine induced by gamma interferon (MIG), which is also known as chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand 9 (CXCL9). MIG is a chemotactic cytokine that belongs to the CXC subfamily of chemokines. MIG is predominantly expressed by monocytes, macrophages, hepatocytes, and endothelial cells in response to interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) stimulation. It is primarily involved in the recruitment of activated T cells. MIG/CXCL9, and the closely-related IP10/CXCL10 and I-TAC/CXCL11 chemokines, exert their biological activities by binding to and signaling through the CXCR3 (CD183) chemokine receptor. CXCR3 is expressed on multiple cell types but predominantly on memory and effector T cells. The CXCL9 and CXCR3 interaction plays an important role in the onset of inflammation and is implicated in the pathogenesis of T-cell mediated immunity in several disease models.

Down Arrow Up Arrow
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
