1.0 mg/ml
No azide/low endotoxin: Aqueous buffered solution containing no preservative, 0.2µm sterile filtered. Endotoxin level is ≤0.01 EU/µg (≤0.001 ng/µg) of protein as determined by the LAL assay.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. This preparation contains no preservatives, thus it should be handled under aseptic conditions.

Recommended Assay Procedures

ELISA:  Biotin Hamster Anti-Mouse IL-9 antibody (Clone D9302C12, Cat. No. 554473) is useful as a detection antibody in sandwich ELISA for measuring mouse IL-9 protein levels and can be paired with Purified Rat Anti-Mouse IL-9 (Clone D8402E8, Cat. No. 551218) as the capture antibody with recombinant mouse IL-9 as the standard.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  3. Although hamster immunoglobulin isotypes have not been well defined, BD Biosciences Pharmingen has grouped Armenian and Syrian hamster IgG monoclonal antibodies according to their reactivity with a panel of mouse anti-hamster IgG mAbs. A table of the hamster IgG groups, Reactivity of Mouse Anti-Hamster Ig mAbs, may be viewed at

The D9302C12 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the multifunctional mouse cytokine, Interleukin-9 (IL-9). IL-9 is a 126 amino acid-long glycoprotein that is produced by various subsets of activated CD4+ T cells. IL-9 acts on target cells by binding to and signaling through the heterodimeric IL-9 receptor (IL-9R) complex that is comprised of transmembrane IL-9 receptor alpha (IL-9Rα) and common gamma chain (γc) subunits. IL-9 can promote the survival, growth, proliferation and/or differentiation of various cell types including thymocytes, T cells, B cells, mast cells, and hematopoietic progenitor cells. IL-9 can augment IL-4-induced IgE and IgG1 production from lipopolysaccharide-primed mouse B cells and induce granzyme and high-affinity IgE receptor gene expression by mouse T helper cell clones and mast cell lines. IL-9 plays an important role in vivo in helminth elimination. The D9302C12 antibody neutralizes mouse IL-9 bioactivity.

NA/LE refers to the culture and purification methods and buffer used to produce purified antibodies with no azide and low endotoxin: Aqueous buffered solution containing no preservative, 0.2µm sterile filtered. Endotoxin level is ≤0.01 EU/µg (≤0.001 ng/µg) of protein as determined by the LAL assay.NA/LE are perfectly suited to be used in culture or in vivo (for nonhuman studies) for functional assays — blocking, neutralizing, activation or depletion — where the presence of azide may damage cells or exogenous endotoxin may signal or activate cells.
