The monoclonal antibody binds to soluble mouse interleukin-1 receptor type I. The IL-1 system includes two agonists (IL-1alpha and IL-1beta), converting enzymes, antagonists, two receptors (IL-1RI and IL-1RII) and the IL-1 receptor accessory protein. Interleukin-1 signal is transduced through the type I receptor.
Functional studies, Immuno assays
The antibody can be used for immuno assays and purification. Furthermore the antibody is useful for inhibition in biological assays, in vitro as well as in vivo.
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 dilutions have to be made according to the amounts IL-1RI to be inactivated.
