Detects human CD25/IL-2 R alpha in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs and Western blots, less than 4% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) IL-2 R beta is observed and no cross-reactivity with rhIL-2 R gamma, rhIL-1 RI, rhIL-1 RII, rhIL-4 R, rhIL-5 R alpha, rhIL-6 R, rhIL‑7 R, rhIL-9 R, and rhIL-10 R is observed.

Recombinant Human CD25/IL‑2 R alpha (Catalog # 223-2A) under non-reducing conditions only
Immersion fixed frozen sections of human lymph node
Measured by its ability to neutralize IL‑2-induced proliferation in the N1186 human T cell line. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.5-1.0 µg/mL in the presence of 1 ng/mL Recombinant Human IL‑2.
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
CD25/IL‑2 R alpha was detected in immersion fixed human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) stimulated with PHA and monensin using Mouse Anti-Human CD25/IL‑2 R alpha Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB223) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (yellow; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

Cell Proliferation Induced by IL‑2 and Neutralization by Human CD25/IL‑2 R alpha Antibody.
Recombinant Human IL‑2 (Catalog # 202-IL) stimulates proliferation in the N1186 human T cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Proliferation elicited by Recombinant Human IL‑2 (1 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Mouse Anti-Human CD25/IL‑2 R alpha Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB223). The ND50 is typically 0.5‑1.0 µg/mL.

Background: CD25/IL-2 R alpha
IL-2 R alpha is a type I transmembrane protein that associates with IL-2 R beta and the common gamma chain to form a high affinity heterotrimeric receptor complex for IL-2. A soluble form of IL-2 R alpha has been detected in serum.
