Alternative Name Interleukin-16 / IL16 (IL16 Antibody Abstract)
Background The leukocyte chemotactic factor (LCF) or interleukin-16 is a proinflammatory cytokine and natural soluble ligand to the human CD4 Molecule. LCF is produced by CD4+ and CD8+ T lymphocytes and is considered essential to the influx of CD4+ T lymphocytes and macrophages into an inflammatory lesion. LCF has been detected in lymphocytes and microglial cells of multiple sclerosis lesions A large neuronal precursor (NIL-16) has recently been identified which can be detected in the cytosol of neurons in the cerebellum and hippocampus.Synonyms: IL-16, LCF, Lymphocyte chemoattractant factor
Gene ID 3603
NCBI Accession NP_001165599
UniProt Q14005
Application Notes Immunohistochemistry on Paraffin Sections: 2.5-5 μg/mL (1/200-1/400). Microwavepretreatment in citrate buffer is recommended for antigen retrieval. Recommneded Positive Control: Human spleen. Has been described to work in ELISA and Western blot.
Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions are dependent on conditions and should be determined by the user.
Protocol Protocol with Formalin-Fixed, Paraffin-Embedded Sections: The whole procedure is performed at room temperature1. Deparaffinize and rehydrate tissue section2. Place slide in a cuvette with 250ml 0. 01M citrate buffer, pH 6. 03. Heat slide in a microwave oven for 2 x 7 min. at 700 Watt4. Leave slide in the buffer for 20min for cooling5. Wash in distilled water6. Block endogenous peroxidase7. Wash in PBS8. Block with 10 % normal goat serum in PBS for 30 min. in a humid chamber9. Incubate with primary antibody (dilution see datasheet) for 1h in a humid chamber10. Wash in PBS11. Incubate with secondary antibody (peroxidase-conjugated goat anti mouse IgG+IgM(H+L) minimal-cross reaction to human) for 1h in a humid chamber12. Wash in PBS 13. Incubate with AEC substrate (3-amino-9-ethylcarbazol) for 12 min. 14. Wash in PBS 15. Counterstain with Mayer's hemalum
