|Alternative Name||IL-4 (IL4 Antibody Abstract)|
|Background||The MP4-25D2 antibody reacts with human interleukin-4 (IL-4). The immunogen used to generate the MP4-25D2 hybridoma was purified recombinant human IL-4. This is a neutralizing antibody. The MP4-25D2 antibody has been reported to cross react with IL-4 from rhesus monkeys. The use of the MP4-25D2 antibody for epitope mapping of human IL-4 has been described. This antibody is routinely tested as a blocking control for intracellular staining.|

1. Blocking Control for Intracellular Staining:
The unlabeled MP4-25D2 antibody can be used as a blocking control to demonstrate specificity of IL-4 staining by conjugated MP4-25D2 antibody. To perform this control, the fixed/permeabilized cells (~ 1 million) can be incubated with 1-10 µg of unlabeled MP4-25D2 antibody (ABIN967463) for 20 minutes at 4°C, prior to staining with conjugated MP4-25D2 antibody. The intracellular cytokine staining technique and use of blocking controls are described in detail by C. Prussin and D. Metcalfe.
The NA/LE™ MP4-25D2 antibody is useful for neutralization of human IL-4 bioactivity. A suitable NA/LE ™ rat IgG1 isotype control to match the MP4-25D2 antibody is the R3-34 antibody.
3. WB: The purified MP4-25D2 antibody has been reported to be useful for Western blotting. Please note that this application is not routinely tested.
