      DescriptionAnti-Interferon Beta Antibody
      Alternate Names
      • interferon, beta 1, fibroblast
      • interferon beta
      • Fibroblast interferon
      • IFN-beta
      Background InformationInterferon beta is a type I IFN regulatory cytokine belonging to a conserved family of secreted proteins that have demonstrated growth-inhibitory, immunomodulatory and antiviral properties. Due to these properties, the type I IFNs have been of considerable interest and use in various clinical functions. Studies have shown Interferon beta to be a potent immunomodulator and tumor growth suppressor through the down-regulation of MGMT. Also, there has been great interest in this cytokine as a possible approach to gene therapy for patients infected with AIDS.
      Product Information
      • Recombinant human Interferon Beta
      PresentationRabbit polyclonal containing serum with 0.05% sodium azide.
      ApplicationDetect Interferon Beta using this Anti-Interferon Beta Antibody validated for use in WB, NEUT, IH(P).
      Key Applications
      • Western Blotting
      • Neutralizing
      • Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin)
      Application NotesNeutralizing Activity Assay Analysis: One unit of neutralization activity is defined as the amount of antibody serum required to inactivate one unit of Interferon Beta activity in a viral resistant assay, i.e., VSV virus and MDBK cell line (Rubinstein S. Familletti, P.C. and Pestka S. Journal of Virology, 1981, 37:755-758). Neutralization activity is measured by the inhibition of VSV infection of MDBK cells in the presence and absence of the neutralization antibody (ability of the antibody to block interferon's protection of MDBK from VSV infection). This antibody has a neutralization activity of 6.0 x 10^5 units/mL. (Note: Interferon Beta response is species specific)

      Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin) Analysis: A 1:500 dilution from a previous lot detected Interferon Beta in benign prostate tissue.
      Biological Information
