Scientific Data Images for Human IFN-beta Antibody

IFN-beta  antibody in Human Breast by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P).

IFN‑ beta in Human Breast.

IFN-beta was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human breast using Mouse Anti-Human IFN-beta Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8145) at 5 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Mouse IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC001). Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm in ductal cells.

Background: IFN-beta

Interferon beta (IFN-beta), also known as fibroblast IFN, is a secreted, approximately 22 kDa member of the type I interferon family of molecules (1). Mature human IFN-beta shares 47% and 46% amino acid sequence identity with the mouse and rat proteins, respectively. Fibroblasts are the major producers of IFN-beta, but it can also be produced by dendritic cells, macrophages, and endothelial cells in response to pathogen exposure (2). It is transcriptionally regulated by TRAF3, IRF3, IRF7, and NF-kappa B (3, 4). Following secretion, IFN-beta signals through the heterodimeric IFN-alpha / beta Receptor and activates the JAK/STAT signaling pathway (5-8). IFN-beta -deficient mice show increased susceptibility to experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), a disease model of human multiple sclerosis (MS) (9). Furthermore, IFN-beta has been shown to suppress the Th17 cell response in both MS and EAE and has commonly been used as a treatment for MS (10-14).
