MP5-20F3_Purified_IL-6_CyTOF_1_112113
C57BL/6 mouse splenocytes were incubated for 6 hours in media alone (top) or with PMA and Ionomycin (bottom) in the presence of monensin and brefeldin A. Cells were then fixed, permeabilized, and stained with 167Er-anti-IL6 (MP5-20F3). Monocytes are displayed in the analysis. Data provided by DVS Sciences.

Description

IL-6 is a potent lymphoid cell growth factor that stimulates the growth and survivability of certain B cells and T cells. IL-6 plays a role in host defense, acute phase reactions, immune responses, and hematopoiesis. IL-6 is expressed by T cells, B cells, monocytes, fibroblasts, hepatocytes, endothelial cells and keratinocytes.

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by ELISA assay. For ELISA applications, a concentration range of 0.5 – 2.0 µg/mL is recommended. To obtain a linear standard curve, serial dilutions of mouse IL-6 recombinant protein ranging from 500 to 8 pg/mL are recommended for each ELISA plate. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

This product is suitable for use with the Maxpar® Metal Labeling Kits. The product is formulated to simplify the antibody preparation when performing the labeling protocol. As a result, it is possible to proceed directly to the step to Partially Reduce the Antibody by adding 100 µl of Maxpar® Ready antibody to 100 µl of 4 mM TCEP-R in a 50 kDa filter and continue with the protocol. Always refer to the latest version of Maxpar® User Guide when conjugating Maxpar® Ready antibodies.

Application Notes

ELISA Capture1-3,11 or ELISPOT Capture4,5: The purified MP5-20F3 antibody is useful as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA or ELISPOT assay, when used in conjunction with the biotinylated MP5-32C11 antibody (Cat. No. 504602) as the detecting antibody and recombinant mouse IL-6 (Cat. No. 575709) as the standard. The Ultra-LEAF™ purified antibody is suggested for ELISPOT capture.

Flow Cytometry: The fluorochrome-labeled MP5-20F3 antibody is useful for intracellular immunofluorescent staining and flow cytometric analysis to identify IL-6 -producing cells within mixed cell populations. For intracellular cytokine staining protocol, please visit www.biolegend.com and click on the support section.

Neutralization1-2,8-10: The Ultra-LEAF™ purified antibody (Endotoxin <0.1 EU/µg, Azide-Free, 0.2 µm filtered) is recommended for neutralization of mouse IL-6 bioactivity in vivo and in vitro (Cat. No. 504506).

Additional reported applications (for relevant formats of this clone) include: In Vivo Capture7, and immunohistochemical staining (paraformaldehyde-fixed/saponin-treated6, and acetone-fixed frozen tissue sections13, 14).

Note: For testing mouse IL-6 in serum, plasma or supernatant, BioLegend's ELISA Max™ Sets (Cat. No. 431301 to 431306) are specially developed and recommended.

Related FAQs

Can I obtain CyTOF data related to your Maxpar® Ready antibody clones?

We do not test our antibodies by mass cytometry or on a CyTOF machine in-house. The data displayed on our website is provided by Fluidigm®. Please contact Fluidigm® directly for additional data and further details.

http://techsupport.fluidigm.com/

Can I use Maxpar® Ready format clones for flow cytometry staining?

We have not tested the Maxpar® Ready antibodies formulated in solution containing EDTA for flow cytometry staining. While it is likely that this will work in majority of the situations, it is best to use the non-EDTA formulated version of the same clone for flow cytometry testing. The presence of EDTA in some situations might negatively affect staining.

I am having difficulty observing a signal after conjugating a metal tag to your Maxpar® antibody. Please help troubleshoot.

We only supply the antibody and not test that in house. Please contact Fluidigm® directly for troubleshooting advice: http://techsupport.fluidigm.com/

Is there a difference between buffer formulations related to Maxpar® Ready and purified format antibodies?

The Maxpar® Ready format antibody clones are formulated in Phosphate-buffered solution, pH 7.2, containing 0.09% sodium azide and EDTA. The regular purified format clones are formulated in solution that does not contain any EDTA. Both formulations are however without any extra carrier proteins.
