Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with biotin under optimum conditions, and unreacted biotin was removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

ELISA Detection: Biotin Rat Anti-Mouse IL-5 antibody (Cat. No. 554397) is useful as a detection antibody for a sandwich ELISA measuring mouse IL-5 protein levels. Biotin Rat Anti-Mouse IL-5 antibody can be paired with the Purified Rat Anti-Mouse/Anti-Human IL-5 antibody (Cat. No. 554393) as the capture antibody, with Recombinant Mouse IL-5 (Cat. No. 554581) as the standard. This biotinylated detection antibody should be titrated in the range of 0.5 to 2.0 µg/ml to determine its optimal concentration for ELISA. To obtain linear standard curves, doubling dilutions of mouse IL-5 ranging from ~15 to 2000 pg/ml are recommended for inclusion in each ELISA plate.

For specific methodology, please visit our web site, http://www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources, and go to the protocols section under "ELISA and ELISPOT".

Note: This ELISA pair is recommended primarily for measuring cytokine from experimental cell culture systems. These ELISA reagents are not recommended for assaying serum or plasma samples. For measuring Mouse IL-5 in serum or plasma our Mouse IL-5 ELISA Set (Cat. No. 555236) is specially formulated and recommended.

Note: This ELISA pair shows no cross-reactivity with any of the following cytokines tested (e.g., mouse IL-1β, IL-2, IL-3, IL-4, IL-6, IL-7, IL-9, IL-10, IL-12 p70, IL-15, GM-CSF, IFN-γ, MCP-1, TCA-3, TNF; 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-12 p70, IL-12 p40, IL-13, IL-15, G-CSF, GM-CSF, IFN-γ, lymphotactin, MCP-1, MCP-2, MIP-1α, MIP-1β, NT-3, PDGF-AA, sCD23, SCF, TNF, LT-α, VEGF; rat IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, GM-CSF, IFN-γ, TNF).

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. 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.
  3. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  4. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.

TRFK4

The TRFK4 antibody reacts with mouse interleukin-5 (IL-5). The immunogen used to generate the TRFK4 hybridoma was a semi-purified T cell clone supernatant. This is a neutralizing antibody.

Biotin
Biotin is a ubiquitous co-factor (also known as Vitamin B7) that has many properties that make it extremely useful for molecular biology. Biotin has an extremely high affinity for the Avidin family of proteins (Kd = 10-15 M), making it the perfect tool to link two molecules. Biotin labeled antibodies can be combined with any number of Avidin-conjugated probes in order to customize an assay to a particular need. This is especially useful in the case of magnetic cell separation using streptavidin/magnetic bead conjugates, or in the case of flow cytometry using streptavidin/fluorophore conjugates.
