Product Summary
The Quantikine Porcine IFN-gamma Immunoassay is a 4 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure porcine IFN-gamma in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant porcine IFN-gamma and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. Results obtained for naturally occurring porcine IFN-gamma showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural porcine IFN-gamma.

Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in separate assays to assess inter-assay precision.

The recovery of porcine IFN-gamma spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
Cell Culture Supernates (n=4) 97 84-116
EDTA Plasma (n=5) 98 85-111
Heparin Plasma (n=5) 106 86-118
Serum (n=5) 98 81-119
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing or spiked with high concentrations of porcine IFN-gamma in each matrix were diluted with the appropriate Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Background: IFN-gamma
IFN-gamma (Interferon-gamma) is the prototype proinflammatory cytokine and is produced by a variety of immune cells under inflammatory conditions, notably by T cells and NK cells. It plays a key role in host defense by promoting the development and activation of Th1 cells, chemoattraction and activation of monocytes and macrophages, upregulation of antigen presentation molecules, and immunoglobulin class switching in B cells. It also exhibits antiviral, antiproliferative, and apoptotic effects. In addition, IFN-gamma functions as an anti-inflammatory mediator by promoting the development of regulatory T cells and inhibiting Th17 cell differentiation. IFN-gamma dimers signal through a receptor complex of two IFN-gamma R1 and two IFN-gamma R2 subunits.

    4.   Add 50 µL of Assay Diluent to each well.

    5. 100 µL Standard, Control, or Sample
    6.   Add 100 µL of Standard, Control, or sample to each well. Cover with a plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 2 hours on a horizontal orbital microplate shaker.
    7.   Aspirate each well and wash, repeating the process 4 times for a total of 5 washes.

    8. 200 µL Conjugate
    9.   Add 200 µL of Conjugate to each well. Cover with a new plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 1 hour on the shaker.
