Mouse Limitin/IFN-zeta Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects Limitin/IFN‑ zeta in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs and Western blots, less than 1% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse IFN-gamma is observed.
Polyclonal Goat IgG
Antigen Affinity-purified
Mouse myeloma cell line NS0-derived recombinant mouse Limitin/IFN‑ zeta
Accession # Q9R1T0
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
<0.01 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.


Recommended Concentration
Western Blot
0.1 µg/mL
Recombinant Mouse Limitin/IFN‑ zeta (Catalog # 1535-LM)
5-15 µg/mL
Perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse thymus
Measured by its ability to neutralize Limitin inhibition of EMCV-induced cytopathy in the L‑929 mouse fibroblast cell line. Vogel, S. and M. Hogan (1995) in Current Protocols in Immunology. Ciocio, R. (ed); John Wiley & Sons, Inc. p. 6. 9. 1. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 1.5-7.5 ng/mL in the presence of 30 pg/mL Recombinant Mouse Limitin.

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.

Limitin Inhibition of EMCV-induced Cytopathy and Neutralization by Mouse Limitin Antibody. Recombinant Mouse Limitin (Catalog # 1535-LM) reduces the Encephalomyocarditis Virus (EMCV)-induced cytopathy in the L-929 mouse fibroblast cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line), as measured by Resazurin (Catalog # AR002). Inhibition of EMCV activity elicited by Recombinant Mouse Limitin (30 pg/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Mouse Limitin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF597). The ND50 is typically 1.5-7.5 ng/mL.

Background: Limitin/IFN-zeta

Limitin, also known as IFN-zeta, is a 20 kDa glycoprotein that is secreted by T cells and bronchial and salivary duct epithelial cells. It inhibits B-lineage cell development but has little effect on myelopoiesis or erythropoiesis. Limitin binds to IFN-alpha / beta receptors and has potent antiviral activity. Mouse Limitin shares 32%, 26%, and 30% amino acid sequence identity with mouse IFN-alpha, mouse IFN-beta, and human IFN-omega, respectively.
