Recommended Assay Procedures

ELISA Capture: Purified hIL4R-M10.1 anti-human IL-4R antibody (Cat. No. 552472) is useful as a capture antibody for a sandwich ELISA which measures human IL-4R protein levels. Purified hIL4R-M10.1 anti-human IL-4R antibody can be paired with biotinylated hIL4R-M.8.2.2 anti-human IL-4R (Cat. No. 552473) as the detection antibody, with recombinant soluble human IL-4R as the standard. This capture antibody should be titrated between 1 - 4 µg/ml to determine the optimal coating concentration for ELISA.  To obtain linear standard curves, doubling dilutions of recombinant human IL-4R ranging from 2000 to 15 pg/ml are recommended for inclusion in each ELISA plate. For specific methodology, see

Note: This ELISA antibody pair shows no cross-reactivity with the following recombinant human cytokines: IL-1RI, IL-1RII, IL-1α, IL-1ß, IL-2, IL-2sR-α, IL-3, IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, IL-6R gp130, IL-7, IL-8, IL-10, IL-12 p40, IL-12 p70, IL-13, IL-15, TNF-α, TNF-ß, sTNFRI, sTNFRII, GM-CSF, TGFß, IFN γ, CD40L, TRAIL, FasL.

Product Notices

  1. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  2. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  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.
  4. Sodium azide is a reversible inhibitor of oxidative metabolism; therefore, antibody preparations containing this preservative agent must not be used in cell cultures nor injected into animals. Sodium azide may be removed by washing stained cells or plate-bound antibody or dialyzing soluble antibody in sodium azide-free buffer. Since endotoxin may also affect the results of functional studies, we recommend the NA/LE (No Azide/Low Endotoxin) antibody format, if available, for in vitro and in vivo use.
  5. Please refer to to access safety data sheets (SDS).

The soluble human IL-4 receptor, also known as  sCD124, is a140-kDa multimeric membrane glycoprotein that binds IL-4 with high affinity. Although many cell types are able to produce soluble IL-4R at low levels, its production is significantly up-regulated in vitro by T cell activation and IL-4. Cytokines secreted by Th2 cells were found to significantly up-regulate soluble IL-4R production following antigenic stimulation. Studies have indicated that the production of sIL-4R in vivo is closely associated with the secretion of IL-4, and are consistent with reports indicating that sIL-4R are involved in the regulation of Il-4 activity during immune response.

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.
