Catalog Number : 500-P73
Produced from sera of rabbits pre-immunized with highly pure recombinant Rat IL-6. Anti-Rat IL-6 specific antibody was purified by affinity chromatography employing immobilized Rat IL-6 matrix.

Anti-Rat IL-6 (BioGems Catalog #400-06)
This antibody stained colchicine injected rat brain (cingulate cortex) tissue. The primary antibody was incubated at 1.0 μg/ml overnight at 4˚C. This was followed by a peroxidase conjugated secondary antibody and then a fluorescein Tyramide Signal Amplification (TSA™) reagent. Optimal concentrations and conditions may vary.

To yield one-half maximal inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of Rat IL-6 (0.5 ng/ml), a concentration of 1.0-1.50 µg/ml of this antibody is required.
To detect Rat IL-6 by sandwich ELISA (using 100 μl/well antibody solution) a concentration of 0.5 - 2.0 μg/ml of this antibody is required. This antigen affinity purified antibody, in conjunction with BioGems' Biotinylated Anti-Rat IL-6 (62-006BT) as a detection antibody, allows the detection of at least 0.2 - 0.4 ng/well of recombinant Rat IL-6.
To detect Rat IL-6 by Western Blot analysis this antibody can be used at a concentration of 0.1- 0.2 µg/ml. When used in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents, the detection limit for recombinant Rat IL-6 is 1.5-3.0 ng/lane, under either reducing or non-reducing conditions.
