IL-2 Rat anti-Mouse, APC-R700, Clone: JES6-5H4, BD
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 565186
The JES6-5H4 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to mouse interleukin-2 (IL-2). IL-2 is a multifunctional cytokine that plays pivotal roles in immunity and tolerance. It is produced by activated T cells. IL-2 effects the activation, growth, proliferation and/or differentiation of various cell types including T and B lymphocytes and their precursors, LAK cells, NK cells, and monocytes/macrophages. IL-2 mediates its biological activities by binding to IL-2 receptor compleses. The intermediate affinity IL-2R is comprised of IL-2R β (CD122) and common gamma chain ( γc; CD132) subunits whereas the high-affinity IL-2R is comprised of IL-2R α (CD25), IL-2R β and γc subunits. The JES6-5H4 monoclonal antibody binds to IL-2 and neutralizes its biological activity.
This antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon APC-R700, which has been developed exclusively by BD Biosciences as a better alternative to Alexa Fluor 700. APC-R700 excites and emits at similar wavelengths to Alexa Fluor 700 yet exhibits significantly improved brightness. This dye can be excited by the red laser and detected with the same filter set as Alexa Fluor (eg, 730/45-nm filter).
