Recombinant Human IFN-gamma R1/CD119 (Catalog # 673-IR)
Measured by its ability to neutralize IFN‑ gamma R1/CD119-mediated inhibition of EMCV-induced cytopathy in the HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line. Meager, A. (1987) in Lymphokines and Interferons, a Practical Approach. Clemens, M. J. et al. (eds): IRL Press. 129. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.5-2 µg/mL in the presence of 2 ng/mL Recombinant Human IFN‑ gamma.

IFN‑ gamma Inhibition of EMCV-induced Cytopathy and Neutralization by Human IFN‑ gamma R1/CD119 Antibody.
Recombinant Human IFN‑ gamma (Catalog # 285-IF) reduces the Encephalomyocarditis Virus (EMCV)-induced cytopathy in the HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Inhibition of EMCV activity elicited by Recombinant Human IFN‑ gamma (2 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Human IFN‑ gamma R1/CD119 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF673). The ND50 is typically 0.5-2 µg/mL.
IFN‑ gamma R1/CD119 was detected in immersion fixed human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) using Goat Anti-Human IFN‑ gamma R1/CD119 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF673) at 15 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to plasma membrane. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Non-adherent Cells.

Background: IFN-gamma R1/CD119
The high-affinity IFN-gamma receptor complex is made up of two type I membrane proteins, IFN-gamma R1 (IFN-gamma R alpha ) and IFN-gamma R2 (IFN-gamma R beta ). Both proteins are members of the type II cytokine receptor family and share approximately 52% overall sequence identity. IFN-gamma R1 is the ligand-binding subunit that is necessary and sufficient for IFN-gamma binding and receptor internalization. IFN-gamma R2 is required for IFN-gamma signaling but does not bind IFN-gamma by itself. Human IFN-gamma R1 cDNA encodes a 499 amino acid (aa) residue protein with a 17 aa signal peptide, a 228 aa extracellular domain, a 23 aa transmembrane domain, and a 221 aa intracellular domain. Human and mouse IFN-gamma R1 share 52% amino acid sequence similarity and bind IFN-gamma in a species-specific manner. IFN-gamma R1 is constitutively expressed in most cell types. Soluble IFN-gamma R1 that binds IFN-gamma has been detected in biological fluids. The recombinant soluble IFN-gamma R1 produced at R&D Systems has been shown to bind IFN-gamma with high affinity and is a potent IFN-gamma antagonist.
