Protein A or G purified from hybridoma culture supernatant
S. frugiperda insect ovarian cell line Sf 21-derived recombinant rat IL-5 Met20-Val132 Accession # Q08125
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.
Immersion fixed rat splenocytes
Measured by its ability to neutralize IL‑5-induced proliferation in the TF‑1 human erythroleukemic cell line. Kitamura, T. et al. (1989) J. Cell Physiol. 140:323. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.2-1.0 µg/mL in the presence of 1.25 ng/mL Recombinant Rat IL‑5.
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‑5 and Neutralization by Rat IL‑5 Antibody.
Recombinant Rat IL‑5 (Catalog # 545-RL) stimulates proliferation in the TF‑1 human erythroleukemic cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Proliferation elicited by Recombinant Rat IL‑5 (1.25 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Mouse Anti-Rat IL‑5 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5452). The ND50 is typically 0.2‑1.0 µg/mL.
Preparation and Storage

IL-5 (Interleukin-5) is a secreted cytokine that is expressed as a covalent dimer. It is produced by activated Th2 cells, eosinophils, mast cells, and iNKT cells and promotes eosinophilic and basophilic differentiation and activation. IL-5 signals through a receptor complex containing IL-5 R alpha and the Common beta Chain/CD131 on eosinophils and basophils. Naturally occurring soluble forms of IL-5 R alpha retain the ability to bind IL-5 and limit its bioavailability.
