Description: The C17.8 antibody reacts with the p40 subunit of IL-12 and IL-23. The C17.8 antibody has been found to neutralize IL-12 and IL-23 bioactivity. For specific neutralization of IL-23 only, please see clone G23-8 (anti-mouse IL-23 p19). IL-12 is a 70 kDa heterodimeric cytokine composed of two covalently linked chains, p40 and p35, and is secreted by activated monocytes, macrophages, and dendritic cells. IL-23 is a heterodimer composed of the disulfide-linked p19 protein and p40 protein, expressed by activated dendritic cells. Applications Reported: This C17.8 antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This C17.8 antibody has been tested by intracellular staining and flow cytometric analysis of stimulated mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.5 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. Excitation: 488 nm; Emission: 695 nm; Laser: Blue Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.IL-12 is an interleukin produced by dendritic cells, neutrophils, macrophages and human lymphoblastoid cells as a result of antigenic stimulation. IL-12 is a heterodimeric cytokine encoded by IL-12A (p35) and IL-12B (p40). IL-23 is a heterodimeric cytokine that shares a subunit with IL-12 (IL-12B) along with an IL-23A (IL-23p19) subunit. Functionally, IL-12 increases the expression of vascular endothelial adhesion molecule-1 on the endothelium, directs leukocytes towards tumors and facilitates the ischemic-hemorrhagic necrosis of the tumor tissue. In comparison, IL-23 plays an important role in stimulating memory T-cells, and is required for the induction, expansion, maintece and downstream effector functions of Th17 cells, which play a vital role in upregulating neutrophil chemokines and various pro-inflammatory cytokines.
