Product Specific Information
MBOIFNG targets IFN gamma in ELISA, and FACS applications and shows reactivity with Bovine, Canine, Equine, Goat, Human, Mustelid, Ovine, and Porcine samples.
The MBOIFNG immunogen is recombinant Bovine IFN gamma.
MBOIFNG detects IFN gamma which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 17 kDa.
IFN gamma, also called Type II interferon, macrophage activation factor, and immune interferon is produced primarily by T-lymphocytes and natural killer cells in response to antigens, mitogens, Staphylococcus enterotoxin B, phytohemaglutanin and other cytokines. IFN gamma is a glycoprotein that exists, functionally, as a homodimer of approximately 45 kDa. On SDS-PAGE it appears as a combination of 25, 20 and minor 15.5 kDa bands as a result of differential glycosylation. The biological activity of the IFN gamma homodimer is highly species specific and includes the following: antiviral activity, tumor antiproliferative activity, induction of class I and II MHC, macrophage activation, and enhanced immunoglobulin secretion by B lymphocytes. IFNg is involved in cytokine regulation and also acts synergistically with other cytokines.
