Western Blot
0.1 µg/mL
Recombinant Human IL‑29/IFN-lambda 1 (Catalog # 1598-IL)
Neutralization
Measured by its ability to neutralize IL‑29/IFN‑ lambda 1 inhibition of EMCV-induced cytopathy in the HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line [Sheppard, P. et al. (2003) Nat. Immunol. 4:63]. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.2-1.0 µg/mL in the presence of 40 ng/mL Recombinant Human IL‑29/IFN‑ lambda 1.

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.

IL‑29/IFN‑ lambda 1 Inhibition of EMCV‑induced Cytopathy and Neutralization by Human IL‑29/IFN‑ lambda 1 Antibody.

Recombinant Human IL‑29/
IFN‑ lambda 1 (Catalog # 1598-IL) reduces the Encephalomyocarditis Virus (EMCV)-induced cytopathy in the HepG2 human hepato­cellular carcinoma cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line), as measured by crystal violet staining. Inhibition of EMCV activity elicited by Recombinant Human IL‑29/IFN‑ lambda 1 (40 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Human IL‑29/IFN‑ lambda 1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1598). The ND50 is typically 0.2-1.0 µg/mL.

Background: IL-29/IFN-lambda 1

IL-28A, IL-28B, and IL-29, also named interferon-lambda 2 (IFN-lambda 2), IFN-lambda 3, and IFN-lambda 1, respectively, are class II cytokine receptor ligands that are distantly related to members of the IL-10 family (11-13% aa sequence identity) and the type I IFN family (15-19% aa sequence identity) (1-3). The genes encoding these three cytokines are localized to chromosome 19 and each is composed of multiple exons. The exon organization of these genes is also found in the IL-10 family genes but is distinct from the type I IFNs, which are encoded within a single exon, The expression of IL-28A, B, and IL‑29 is induced by virus infection or double-stranded RNA. All three cytokines exert bioactivities that overlap those of type I IFNs, including antiviral activity and up-regulation of MHC class I antigen expression. The three proteins signal through the same heterodimeric receptor complex that is composed of the IL-10 receptor  beta (IL-10 R beta ) and a novel IL-28 receptor  alpha (IL-28 R alpha, also known as IFN-lambda R1). Ligand binding to the receptor complex induces Jak kinase activation and STAT1 and STAT2 tyrosine phosphorylation. The phosphorylated STAT1 and STAT2 complex with IFN-regulatory factor 9 (IRF-9) to form the IFN-stimulated regulatory factor 3 (ISGF-3) transcription factor complex that is translocated to the nucleus. ISGF-3 binds to the IFN-stimulated response element (ISRE) present in the regulatory region of the target genes. Human IL-29 cDNA encodes a 200 amino acid (aa) residue precursor protein with a putative 19 aa signal peptide and a 181 aa mature protein, which is a monomer in solution. It shares 67% and 69% aa sequence identity with human IL-28A and IL-28B, respectively.
