Application: Immunohistochemistry and Western blot analysis. Clone: MC-16. Isotype: Mouse IgG1. Antigen: For immunization recombinant human IFN-αCon1 is used. Production: In vitro using serum free medium. Purification: Ion exchange chromatography. Packaging: Lyophilized and vacuum-packed. Contents: 0.5 mg/vial. Buffer: Prior to lyophilization: 0.5 ml PBS + 125 mM trehalose. Specificity: Binds with high affinity to natural human IFN-α, recombinant human IFN-αCon1, IFN-α2A/B and natural rhesus macaque IFN-α but does not neutralize its antiviral bioactivity in vitro. The antibody exerts no binding activity towards mouse and rat IFN-α, human IFN-β and human IFN-γ.
