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.

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. Please refer to for technical protocols.

The GIR-208 antibody recognizes the extracellular region of CD119 which is also known as the alpha chain subunit (80-95 kDa glycoprotein) of the human interferon-γ receptor (IFN-γRα).  The functionally active-form of the human IFN-γ receptor consists of two (or more) subunits, with IFN-γRα responsible for IFN-γ binding and both the IFN-γRα and β chains required for the transduction of biologic responses.  The IFN-γ receptor α chain (CD119) is expressed on the surface of most human cells (except mature erythrocytes) including monocytes, macrophages, T cells, B cells, NK cells, neutrophils, fibroblasts, epithelial cells, and endothelium.  Binding of 125I-labeled GIR-208 antibody to IFN-γRα+ cells is reported to be specifically inhibited in the presence of excess IFN-γ.  GIR-208 does not cross react with IFN-γ as tested by ELISA. The ability of this antibody to bind to IFN-γ receptors of species other than human has not been determined. The immunogen used to generate this hybridoma was human IFN-γRα purified from human placenta.  The GIR- 208 has been reported to block the binding of 125I-human IFN-γ to IFN-γRα+ cells as well as purified, soluble human IFN-γRα. GIR-208 is a neutralizing antibody that has been shown to neutralize the anti-viral activity of IFN-γ on WISH cells in a dose-dependent fashion.

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.
