Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells treated with PHA and Recombinant Human IL‑2 (Catalog # 202-IL)
Immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human skin
Ready to be labeled using established conjugation methods. No BSA or other carrier proteins that could interfere with conjugation.
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.

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.
