|Produced in rabbits immunized with purified, recombinant Rat IL-3 (rR IL-3; Catalog#80235-R08B; NP_113701.1; Met1-Cys169). IL-3 specific IgG was purified by Rat IL-3 affinity chromatography.|
ELISA: 0.1-0.2 μg/mL
This antibody can be used at 0.1-0.2 μg/mL with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect Rat IL-3. The detection limit for Rat IL-3 is approximately 0.00975 ng/well.
IHC-P: 0.1-2 μg/mL
Sodium azide is recommended to avoid contamination (final concentration 0.05%-0.1%). It is toxic to cells and should be disposed of properly. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
IL3 (interleukin 3), also known as IL-3, is a potent growth promoting cytokine which belongs to the IL-3 family. IL3/IL-3 also belongs to the group of interleukins. Interleukins are produced by a wide variety of body cells. The function of the immune system depends in a large part on interleukins, and rare deficiencies of a number of them have been described, all featuring autoimmune diseases or immune deficiency. The majority of interleukins are synthesized by helper CD4+ T lymphocytes, as well as through monocytes, macrophages, and endothelial cells. They promote the development and differentiation of T, B, and hematopoietic cells. IL3/IL-3 is capable of supporting the proliferation of a broad range of hematopoietic cell types. It is involved in a variety of cell activities such as cell growth, differentiation and apoptosis. IL3/IL-3 has been shown to also possess neurotrophic activity, and it may be associated with neurologic disorders.
