The antibody reacts with human Interleukin-10 (IL-10) of both natural and recombinant origin. IL-10 is a pluripotent cytokine with important immunosuppressive actions: it can inhibit cytokines involved in the Th1 response such as IL-2, Interferon gamma and also inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines such as IL-1, IL-6, IL-8 and TNF-alpha. The antibody inhibits the biological activity of natural and recombinant human IL-10. The antigen specificity was further assessed by ELISA. No cross reactivities with other cytokines have been detected.

For cell staining dilutions to be used depend on detection system applied. It is recommended that users test the reagent and determine their own optimal dilutions. The typical starting working dilution is 1:10. For neutralization of biological activity in vitro dilutions have to be made according to the amount of IL-10 to be inactivated. Before use in biological assays, the product must be filter sterilized and depending on the concentration to be used dialyzed against culture medium to remove the sodium azide added. Please inquire for availability of azide free solutions
