Human IL-24 Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects human IL-24 in direct ELISAs and Western blots.
Polyclonal Goat IgG
Antigen Affinity-purified
Mouse myeloma cell line NS0-derived recombinant human IL‑24
Accession # Q2YHE5
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied either lyophilized or as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.


Recommended Concentration
Western Blot
0.1 µg/mL
Recombinant Human IL‑24 (Catalog # 1965-IL)
Ready to be labeled using established conjugation methods. No BSA or other carrier proteins that could interfere with conjugation.
Intracellular Staining by Flow Cytometry
2.5 µg/106 cells
Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells fixed with paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with saponin
Measured by its ability to neutralize IL‑24-induced proliferation in the BaF3 mouse pro‑B cell line co-transfected with human IL‑20 R alpha and IL‑20 R beta. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically < 0.6 µg/mL in the presence of 2 ng/mL Recombinant Human IL‑24.

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‑24 and Neutralization by Human IL‑24 Antibody. Recombinant Human IL-24 (Catalog # 1965-IL) stimulates proliferation in the BaF3 mouse pro-B cell line co-transfected with human IL-20 Ra and IL-20 R beta in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Proliferation elicited by Recombinant Human IL-24 (2 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Human IL-24 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1965). The ND50 is typically < 0.6 µg/mL.

Background: IL-24

Interleukin 24 (IL-24), also known as mda-7 (melanoma differentiation associated gene-7), is a member of the IL-10 family of helical cytokines. The IL-24 gene encodes a precursor protein of 207 amino acids that contains a 48 amino acid (aa) signal sequence and an 18 kDa, 158 aa mature segment. There are three potential N-linked glycosylation sites, at least one of which is used. When secreted, IL-24 is a 35-40 kDa phosphorylated glycoprotein that apparently can exist as either a monomer or dimer. It is suggested that glycosylation is essential for activity. Mature human IL-24 shares 69% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat IL-24. Human IL-24 is also active in rodent systems. Cells known to express IL-24 include B cells, CD4+ T cells, NK cells, lymph node dendritic cells, monocytes, melanocytes, and melanoma cells. Functionally, IL-24 has diverse activities. At low concentrations on monocytes, it induces type I proinflammatory cytokines such as IFN-gamma, IL-1 beta, IL‑12, and TNF-alpha. At high concentrations, it is a strong inducer of apoptosis in tumor cells but not normal cells. IL-24 also has anti-angiogenic properties. It directly binds IL-24 receptors on endothelial cells, activating STAT3 and blocking their differentiation. IL-24 binds and signals through two heterodimeric receptor complexes. One complex is the combination of IL-20 R alpha and IL-20 R beta, which is shared with IL-19 and IL-20. The second complex is a combination of IL-22 R and IL-20 R beta, which is shared with IL-20.
