Product Specific Information
PBOIL4I targets IL-4 in ELISA, and WB applications and shows reactivity with Bovine samples.
The PBOIL4I immunogen is recombinant bovine IL-4.
PBOIL4I detects IL-4 which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 13 kDa.
The protein encoded by this gene is a pleiotropic cytokine produced by activated T cells. This cytokine is a ligand for interleukin 4 receptor. The interleukin 4 receptor also binds to IL13, which may contribute to many overlapping functions of this cytokine and IL13. STAT6, a signal transducer and activator of transcription, has been shown to play a central role in mediating the immune regulatory signal of this cytokine. This gene, IL3, IL5, IL13, and CSF2 form a cytokine gene cluster on chromosome 5q, with this gene particularly close to IL13. This gene, IL13 and IL5 are found to be regulated coordinately by several long-range regulatory elements in an over 120 kilobase range on the chromosome. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants of this gene encoding distinct isoforms have been reported.
PBOIL4I was used in ELISA to evaluate the diagnostic markers of Mycobacterium bovis infection in cattle
