Detection of Human IL‑32 alpha by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) treated (+) with 200 ng/mL Ionomycin and 10 ng/mL PMA for 72 hours. PVDF Membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Human IL‑32 alpha Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB30401) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF005). A specific band was detected for IL‑32 alpha at approximately 30 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
IL‑32 alpha in Human PBMCs.
IL‑32 alpha was detected in immersion fixed human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) using Human IL‑32 alpha Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB30401) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (yellow; Catalog # NL013) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Non-adherent Cells.

Background: IL-32 alpha
IL-32 alpha is the shortest and most abundant of four potential splice variants of the proinflammatory cytokine IL-32 (previously called NK4) with a predicted unmodified size of 15 kDa. Potential modifications include myristoylation and N-glycosylation. Transfected IL-32 alpha was more likely to be cell-associated as compared to IL-32 beta, suggesting an intracellular function. IL-32 is induced by mitogens in peripheral lymphocytes, by IFN‑ gamma in epithelial cells, or by IL-12 with IL-18 in NK cells and in turn Induces cytokine expression. No ortholog has been found in mouse.
