2.5 µg/106 cells
Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells treated with PHA and Recombinant Human IL‑2 (Catalog # 202-IL)
Immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human skin
Measured by its ability to neutralize IL‑18/IL‑1F4-induced IFN‑ gamma secretion in KG-1 human myeloid leukemia cells. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.03-0.1 µg/mL in the presence of 40 ng/mL Recombinant Human IL‑18/IL‑1F4 and 20 ng/mL Recombinant Human TNF-alpha.
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.
IFN‑ gamma Secretion Induced by IL‑18/IL‑1F4 and Neutralization by IL‑18 R alpha /IL‑1 R5 Antibody. In the presence of Recombinant Human TNF‑ alpha (20 ng/mL, Catalog # 210-TA), Recombinant Human IL‑18/IL‑1F4 (Catalog # B003-5) stimulates IFN‑ gamma secretion in KG-1 human myeloid leukemia cells in a dose-dependent manner (orange line), as measured by the Human IFN‑ gamma Quantikine ELISA Kit (Catalog # DIF50). Under these conditions, IFN‑ gamma secretion elicited by Recombinant Human IL‑18/IL‑1F4 (40 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Mouse Anti-Human IL‑18 R alpha / IL‑1 R5 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB840). The ND50 is typically 0.03‑0.1 µg/mL.
IL‑18 R alpha /IL‑1 R5 in Human PBMCs. IL‑18 R alpha /IL‑1 R5 was detected in immersion fixed human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) using 10 µg/mL Mouse Anti-Human IL‑18 R alpha /IL‑1 R5 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB840) for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained with the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

Background: IL-18 R alpha/IL-1 R5
Interleukin 18 (IL-18) is a member of the IL-1 family of cytokines and shares numerous immunoregulatory functions with IL-12. The functional IL-18 receptor complex is composed of two subunits designated IL-18 R alpha (also termed IL-1 R5 and IL-1 Rrp) and IL-18 R beta (also termed IL-1 R7 and AcPL). Both IL-18 R alpha and IL-18 R beta belong to the IL-1 receptor superfamily. Although IL-18 R by itself binds IL-18 with low affinity and IL-18 R beta does not bind IL-18 in vitro, co-expression of IL‑18 R alpha and IL‑18 R beta is required for high affinity binding and IL-18 responsiveness. Human IL-18 R cDNA encodes a 541 amino acid (aa) precursor type I membrane protein with a hydrophobic signal, an extracellular domain comprised of three immunoglobulin-like domains, a transmembrane domain and a cytoplasmic region of approximately 200 aa. Human and mouse IL-18 R share 65% amino acid sequence homology. IL-18 R is widely expressed in numerous tissues including spleen, thymus, leukocyte, liver, lung, heart, small and large intestine, prostate and placenta.
