Rat IgG1, κ
Partially-Purified Mouse IFN-γ
ELISA (Routinely Tested), Neutralization (Tested During Development)
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:  Purified Rat Anti-Mouse IFN-γ (Clone R4-6A2, Cat. No. 551216) has been reported to be useful as a capture antibody for sandwich ELISA measuring mouse IFN-γ protein levels. Purified R4-6A2 antibody can be paired with Biotin Rat Anti-Mouse IFN-γ (XMG1.2, Cat. No. 554410) as the detection antibody and using recombinant mouse IFN-γ (Cat. No. 554587) as the standard.  For measuring mouse IFN-γ in serum or plasma, investigators are highly encouraged to use the BD OptEIA™ Mouse IFN-γ ELISA Set (Cat. No. 551866) or BD OptEIA™ Mouse IFN-γ ELISA Kit II (Cat No. 558258).

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.

The R4-6A2 antibody reacts with mouse interferon-γ (IFN-γ). The immunogen used to generate the R4-6A2 hybridoma was partially purified mouse IFN-γ protein. This is a neutralizing antibody.

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.
