Scientific Data Images for Mouse IFN-beta Antibody

IFN‑ beta Inhibition of Viral-induced Cytopathy and Neutralization by Mouse IFN‑ beta Antibody.

IFN‑ beta Inhibition of Viral-induced Cytopathy and Neutralization by Mouse IFN‑ beta Antibody.

Recombinant Mouse IFN-beta (Catalog # 8234-MB) reduces the viral-induced cytopathy in the L-929 mouse fibroblast cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line) as measured by Resazurin (Catalog # AR002). Inhibition of viral activity elicited by Recombinant Mouse IFN-beta (10 pg/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Rabbit Anti-Mouse IFN-beta Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8234). The ND50 is typically 0.25-1.25 µg/mL.

Applications for Mouse IFN-beta Antibody

Application
Recommended Usage

Neutralization

Measured by its ability to neutralize IFN‑ beta inhibition of viral-induced cytopathy in the L‑929 mouse fibroblast cell line. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.25-1.25 µg/mL in the presence of 10 pg/mL Recombinant Mouse IFN‑ beta.
Please Note: Optimal dilutions of this antibody should be experimentally determined.

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 mouse IFN-beta shares 75% and 47% amino acid sequence identity with the rat and human 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 pathogens (2). It is transcriptionally regulated by TRAF3, IRF3, IRF7, and NF-kappa B (3, 4). IFN-beta -deficient mice show increased susceptibility to experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), a disease model of human multiple sclerosis (MS) (5). 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 (6-10). IFN-beta can additionally induce the expression of the anti-inflammatory cytokine IL-10 (11).
