Mouse myeloma cell line, NS0-derived mouse IFN-gamma R2 protein Met1-Val243, with a C-terminal 6-His tag
>95%, by SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions and visualized by silver stain
<0.01 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.
N-terminal sequence Analysis
Predicted Molecular Mass
26 kDa (monomer)
37-50 kDa, reducing conditions and visualized by silver stain.
Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. When Recombinant Mouse IFN-gamma R1 Fc Chimera (Catalog # 1026-GR) is immobilized at 2 μg/mL (100 μL/well), it binds to Recombinant Mouse IFN‑ gamma R2 in the presence of Recombinant Mouse IFN-gamma (Catalog # 485-MI). The concentration of Recombinant Mouse IFN‑ gamma R2 that produces 50% of the optimal binding response was found to be approximately 0.8-4 μg/mL.
Formulation, Preparation and Storage
What does CF mean?
CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our
Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant
protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration.
The carrier free version does not contain BSA.
What formulation is right for me?
In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or
as an ELISA standard.
In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS.
Reconstitute at 250 μg/mL in PBS.

Background: IFN-gamma R2
IFN‑ gamma R2 (Interferon gamma receptor 2; also called IFN‑ gamma R beta IFN‑ gamma RII, or AF1) is a 60‑64 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is a member of the class II cytokine receptor family of molecules (1). It is widely expressed as part of a preassembled cell surface multimeric complex. In the absence of IFN‑ gamma, the complex contains two each of IFN‑ gamma R1, R2 and Jak1 molecules (2). Binding of IFN‑ gamma to IFN‑ gamma R1 recruits Jak2 to IFN‑ gamma R2 and initiates phosphorylation, STAT1 binding, conformational changes, and transcriptional regulation, which mainly inhibits proliferation and/or promotes apoptosis (2, 3). Mouse IFN‑ gamma R2 cDNA encodes 332 amino acids (aa), including a signal sequence (aa 1‑27), an extracellular region (ECD, aa 28‑243) with two fibronectin type III domains, a transmembrane sequence (aa 244‑264) and a cytoplasmic tail (aa 265-332) (1, 2). Within the ECD, mouse IFN‑ gamma R2 shares 80% aa sequence identity with rat IFN‑ gamma R2, and 49‑55% with human, canine, porcine and bovine IFN‑ gamma R2. IFN‑ gamma R1 and R2 must be from the same species for receptor complexes to be active, and human IFN‑ gamma is not active on the mouse IFN‑ gamma receptor complex (1, 2). IFN‑ gamma R1 is essential for ligand binding and is more constitutively expressed, while IFN‑ gamma R2 is essential for signaling, and its more limited expression controls cell response to IFN‑ gamma (2, 3). For example, mouse T cell IFN‑ gamma R2 is down‑regulated during differentiation to subtypes such as Th1 which produce IFN‑ gamma. (3, 4) This allows expansion of activated cells without growth arrest due to paracrine response to IFN‑ gamma. Following expansion, IFN‑ gamma R2 is re‑expressed to limit the immune reaction (5). IFN‑ gamma signaling mediates control of intracellular pathogens such as mycobacteria (3, 4, 6). In humans, deficiency of IFN‑ gamma R2 or other IFN‑ gamma pathway molecules causes the MSMD (mendelian susceptibility to mycobacterial diseases) syndrome (6‑8).
