Human CD25/IL-2 R alpha Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Human
Specificity
Detects human CD25/IL-2 R alpha in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs and Western blots, less than 5% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) IL‑2 R beta, rhIL-2 R gamma, and rhIL-15 R is observed.
Source
Polyclonal Goat IgG
Purification
Protein A or G purified
Immunogen
recombinant human CD25/IL-2 R alpha extracellular domain
Formulation
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.
Label
Unconjugated

Applications

Recommended Concentration
Sample
Western Blot
1 µg/mL
Recombinant Human CD25/IL‑2 R alpha (Catalog # 223-2A)
Neutralization
Measured by its ability to neutralize IL‑2-induced proliferation in the N1186 human T cell line. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 5-20 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.

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 Goat Anti-Human CD25/IL‑2 R alpha Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AB-223-NA). The ND50 is typically 5-20 µg/mL.

Background: CD25/IL-2 R alpha

Human CD25, also known as IL-2 receptor alpha (IL-2 R alpha ) and asTac antigen, was initially identified as a 55 kDa membrane glycoprotein that is capable of binding IL‑2. The IL-2 R alpha cDNA encodes a 272 amino acid residue precursor Type I membrane protein with a 21 residue signal peptide, a 219 residue extracellular region, a 19 residue transmembrane region and a 13 residue cytoplasmic domain. IL-2 R alpha lacks structural features characteristic of members of the cytokine receptor superfamily. By itself, IL-2 R alpha binds IL-2 with low affinity. However, when IL-2 R alpha is associated with the IL-2 receptor beta and gamma chains, a high affinity heterotrimeric receptor complex that transduces IL-2 signals is formed. Soluble forms of many cytokine receptors have been reported, and a soluble form of IL-2 R alpha (IL-2 sR alpha ) appears in serum, concomitant with its increased expression on cells. The function of the soluble IL-2 R alpha is unclear. Increased levels of IL-2 sR alpha in biological fluids reportedly correlate with increased T and B cell activation and immune system activation. Increased serum concentration of IL-2 sR alpha has been observed in patients with a variety of inflammatory conditions and in the course of some leukemias and lymphomas.
