Produced in BALB/c mice using highly pure (>98%) recombinant human IL-6 as the immunizing antigen. This IgG1K antibody was purified from cell culture by Protein A affinity chromatography.
E.coli derived Recombinant Human IL-6 (PeproTech catalog #200-06)
In a sandwich ELISA (assuming 100µl/well), a concentration of 4.0-8.0 µg/ml of this antibody will detect at least 500 pg/ml of recombinant human IL-6 when used with PeproTech's biotinylated antigen affinity purified anti-human IL-6 (500-P26Bt) as the detection antibody at a concentration of approximately 0.5-1.0 µg/ml.
To detect hIL-6 by Western Blot analysis this antibody can be used at a concentration of 0.20-0.40 µg/ml. Used in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents the detection limit for recombinant hIL-6 is 0.5-1.0 ng/lane, under reducing or non-reducing conditions.
This antibody stained formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections of human cervical squamous cell carcinoma. The recommended concentration is 0.125 μg/ml with an overnight incubation at 4˚C. An HRP-labeled polymer detection system was used with a DAB chromogen. Heat induced antigen retrieval with a pH 6.0 sodium citrate buffer is recommended. Optimal concentrations and conditions may vary. Tissue samples were provided by the Cooperative Human Tissue Network, which is funded by the National Cancer Institute.
