Detects mouse Common gamma Chain/IL‑2 R gamma in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In Western blots, approximately 5% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) IL-2 R gamma is observed and less than 1% cross-reactivity with rhIL-2 R alpha, recombinant mouse IL-2 R beta, and rhIL-15 R is observed.
Polyclonal Goat IgG
S. frugiperda insect ovarian cell line Sf 21-derived recombinant mouse Common gamma Chain/IL‑2 R gamma Ser25-Ala263 Accession # Q3UPA9
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.
Recombinant Mouse Common gamma Chain/IL‑2 R gamma Fc Chimera (Catalog # 784-MR)
Measured by its ability to neutralize IL‑15-induced proliferation in the CTLL‑2 mouse cytotoxic T cell line. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 6-24 µg/mL in the presence of 0.8 ng/mL Recombinant Human IL‑15.
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‑15 and Neutralization by Mouse Common gamma Chain/ IL‑2 R gamma Antibody. Recombinant Human IL‑15 (Catalog # 247-IL) stimulates proliferation in the CTLL‑2 mouse cytotoxic T cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Proliferation elicited by Recombinant Human IL‑15 (0.8 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Mouse Common gamma Chain/IL‑2 R gamma Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF784). The ND50 is typically 6‑24 µg/mL.

Background: Common gamma Chain/IL-2 R gamma
The gamma chain of the high affinity functional mouse IL-2 receptor complex belongs to the hematopoietin receptor family. Mouse Common gamma Chain is a 369 amino acid residue protein consisting of a 22 residue signal sequence, a 241 residue extracellular domain, a 21 residue transmembrane domain and an 85 residue cytoplasmic domain. Although Common gamma Chain by itself does not bind IL-2 with any appreciable affinity, it is required for IL-2 receptor signaling. Besides IL-2, the gamma chain has been shown to be a component of the functional receptor complexes for IL-4, IL-7, IL-9 and IL-15. IL-2 R gamma is also designated the common gamma chain ( gamma c) (1, 2). The site of molecular defects in human X-linked SCID (severe combined immunodeficiency) has been mapped to the human common gamma gene.
