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.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.

Antibody Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow

The 4G3 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the common γ subunit (γc) shared by the IL-2, IL-4, IL-7, IL-9, IL-15, and IL-21 receptors also known as CD132. This receptor is expressed constitutively at low levels on most lymphocytes, myeloid cells, embryonic thymocytes and lymphoid cell lines, but not non-lymphoid cells.  The γc receptor is a 75 - 80 kD transmembrane glycoprotein which mediates signal transducing activities of cytokine receptor complexes with which it is associated.

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.
