    Human PBMCs, stimulated with 1 µg/mL of LPS for 8 h and treated with Brefeldin A during the last 4 h, were prepared by cytospin, fixed and permeabilized on a slide and then treated with endogenous biotin blocking kit (Vector labs). Slides were stained with anti-human IL-6 biotin (clone MQ2-39C3) and DyLight™ 649 streptavidin (green) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Images were acquired with an Olympus FV10i confocal microscope. Images courtesy of Teresa Rodriguez, Darius Schneider, and Matthias von Herrath, LaJolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology.

Description

IL-6 is a potent lymphoid cell growth factor that stimulates the growth and survival of certain B cells and T cells. IL-6 plays a role in host defense, acute phase reactions, immune response, and hematopoiesis. IL-6 is expressed by T cells, B cells, monocytes, fibroblasts, hepatocytes, endothelial cells and keratinocytes. The MQ2-39C3 antibody can neutralize the bioactivity of natural or recombinant IL-6.

Application

ELISA Detection, ELISPOT Detection - Quality tested
ICC - Verified

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by ELISA assay. For ELISA detection applications, a concentration range of 0.5 - 2.0 µg/mL is recommended. To obtain a linear standard curve, serial dilutions of IL-6 recombinant protein ranging from 1000 to 8 pg/mL are recommended for each ELISA plate. For use as an ELISPOT detection antibody, a concentration range of 1.0 - 4.0 µg/mL is recommended. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

ELISA or ELISPOT Detection1-4: The biotinylated MQ2-39C3 antibody is useful as a detection antibody for a sandwich ELISA or ELISPOT assay, when used in conjunction with purified MQ2-13A5 antibody (Cat. No. 5001102/501110) as the capture antibody.
Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: neutralization1, Western blotting. The LEAF™ purified MQ2-13A5 antibody (Endotoxin Note: For testing human IL-6 in serum or plasma, BioLegend's ELISA Max™ Sets (Cat. No. 430501 to 430506) are specially developed and recommended.
