Activity (Specifications/test method)
The ED₅₀ as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of murine hybridoma cell line B9 is 5 x 10⁷ units/mg.
Physical form description
Lyophilized from 10 mg/ml solution in H₂O.
Reconstitute in H₂O to a concentration of 0.1-0.5 mg/ml (Note: Gently shake the solution for about 10 minutes for better solubility). The solution can be diluted into other aqueous buffers and stored at 4°C for 1 week or –20°C for future use.
Centrifuge the vial prior to opening.
For Research Use Only! Not to be used in humans
Human proteins, cDNA and human recombinants are used in human reactive ELISA kits and to produce anti-human mono and polyclonal antibodies. Modern humans (Homo sapiens, primarily ssp. Homo sapiens sapiens). Depending on the epitopes used human ELISA kits can be cross reactive to many other species. Mainly analyzed are human serum, plasma, urine, saliva, human cell culture supernatants and biological samples.
