Recombinant Human IFN-γ (Animal-Free)
Animal-FreeThis product is produced with no animal derived raw products. All processing and handling employs animal free equipment and animal free protocols.
DescriptionInterferon γ (IFN-γ) is a type II interferon that is critical during adaptive and innate immune responses to infection. IFN-γ is produced by T cells and Natural Killer cells following antigen-specific activation. IFN-γ binds IFN-γ receptors (IFN-γ R1 and IFN-γ R2), which are expressed on most immune cells, to activate the JAK-STAT pathway. IFN-γ induced signaling increases the expression of class 1 major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules. Human IFN-γ is not cross-reactive with mouse IFN-γ.
Activity AssayHuman IFN-γ (Animal-Free) is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The activity is determined by the viral CPE assay using EMC virus on A549 cells. The activity corresponds to an expected specific activity of 1.0 x 107 units/mg.

|≥95% determined by reducing and non-reducing SDS-PAGE
|≤1.00 EU/μg as measured by kinetic LAL
|Lyophilized from a sterile filtered solution containing 10 mM sodium phosphate, 50 mM sodium chloride, pH 7.5
|Centrifuge vial before opening. When reconstituting the product, gently pipet and wash down the sides of the vial to ensure full recovery of the protein into solution. It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized product with sterile water at 0.1 mg/ml, which can be further diluted into other aqueous solutions. Upon reconstitution, a small amount of visible precipitate can be expected. A 10% overfill has been added to the total material vialed to compensate for this loss.
|Stability and Storage
12 months from date of receipt when stored at -20°C to -80°C as supplied. 1 month when stored at 4°C after reconstituting as directed. 3 months when stored at -20°C to -80°C after reconstituting as directed.
