Mouse IFN-gamma  R2 Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects mouse IFN‑ gamma R2 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In Western blots, approximately 5% cross‑reactivity with recombinant human IFN-gamma R2 is observed and less than 1% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse (rm) IFN‑ gamma  R1 and rmIFN-alpha / beta R2 is observed.
Polyclonal Goat IgG
Antigen Affinity-purified
Mouse myeloma cell line NS0-derived recombinant mouse IFN-gamma  R2
Accession # NP_032364
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 Mouse IFN-gamma  R2
Measured by its ability to neutralize IFN‑ gamma  R2-mediated inhibition of EMCV-induced cytopathy in the L‑929 mouse fibroblast cell line. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.2-0.8 µg/mL in the presence of 1 ng/mL Recombinant Mouse IFN‑ gamma.

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.

IFN‑ gamma Inhibition of EMCV-induced Cytopathy and Neutralization by Mouse IFN‑ gamma R2 Antibody. Recombinant Mouse IFN-gamma (Catalog # 485-MI) reduces the Encephalomyocarditis Virus (EMCV)-induced cytopathy in the L-929 mouse fibroblast cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Inhibition of EMCV activity elicited by Recombinant Mouse IFN-gamma (1 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Mouse IFN-gamma R2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1185). The ND50 is typically 0.2-0.8 µg/mL.

Background: IFN-gamma R2

IFN‑ gamma  R2 (Interferon gamma receptor 2; also called IFN‑ gamma R beta IFN‑ gamma  RII, or AF1) is a 60‑64 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is a member of the class II cytokine receptor family of molecules (1). It is widely expressed as part of a preassembled cell surface multimeric complex. In the absence of IFN‑ gamma, the complex contains two each of IFN‑ gamma  R1, R2 and Jak1 molecules (2). Binding of IFN‑ gamma to IFN‑ gamma  R1 recruits Jak2 to IFN‑ gamma  R2 and initiates phosphorylation, STAT1 binding, conformational changes, and transcriptional regulation, which mainly inhibits proliferation and/or promotes apoptosis (2, 3). Mouse IFN‑ gamma  R2 cDNA encodes 332 amino acids (aa), including a signal sequence (aa 1‑27), an extracellular region (ECD, aa 28‑243) with two fibronectin type III domains, a transmembrane sequence (aa 244‑264) and a cytoplasmic tail (aa 265-332) (1, 2). Within the ECD, mouse IFN‑ gamma  R2 shares 80% aa sequence identity with rat IFN‑ gamma  R2, and 49‑55% with human, canine, porcine and bovine IFN‑ gamma  R2. IFN‑ gamma  R1 and R2 must be from the same species for receptor complexes to be active, and human IFN‑ gamma is not active on the mouse IFN‑ gamma receptor complex (1, 2). IFN‑ gamma  R1 is essential for ligand binding and is more constitutively expressed, while IFN‑ gamma  R2 is essential for signaling, and its more limited expression controls cell response to IFN‑ gamma (2, 3). For example, mouse T cell IFN‑ gamma  R2 is down‑regulated during differentiation to subtypes such as Th1 which produce IFN‑ gamma. (3, 4) This allows expansion of activated cells without growth arrest due to paracrine response to IFN‑ gamma. Following expansion, IFN‑ gamma  R2 is re‑expressed to limit the immune reaction (5). IFN‑ gamma  signaling mediates control of intracellular pathogens such as mycobacteria (3, 4, 6). In humans, deficiency of IFN‑ gamma  R2 or other IFN‑ gamma pathway molecules causes the MSMD (mendelian susceptibility to mycobacterial diseases) syndrome (6‑8).
