Anti-hIFN-γ-hIgA2 (clone H7WM120) is a recombinant monoclonal antibody (mAb) able to neutralize human interferon-gamma (hIFN-γ). This mAb is expressed and produced in chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells, ensuring reliability and lot-to-lot reproducibility. Thereby, common hybridoma-related drawbacks such as the generation of non-relevant mAbs containing aberrant light chains are avoided [1]. 

Anti-hIFN-γ-hIgA2 consists of the variable region of the Anti-hIFN-γ mAb (clone H7WM120) and the engineered human IgA2 constant region. This antibody has been selected for its ability to efficiently neutralize the biological activity of hIFN-γ. It was found to have significantly higher neutralizing activity than its corresponding IgG isotype. 

 

Key features:

  • Potent and specific neutralization activity against hIFN-γ
  • Free from non-relevant mAbs found in hybridoma-based productions
  • Provided azide-free
  • Each lot is functionally tested

 

IFN-γ plays a role in activating lymphocytes to enhance anti-microbial and anti-tumor effects [2-4].

Details

Interferon-gamma (IFN-γ), a Type II interferon, is secreted from CD4+ T-helper 1 (Th1) cells and activated natural killer (NK) cells. It plays a role in activating lymphocytes to enhance anti-microbial and anti-tumor effects [1-3]. In addition, IFN-γ plays a role in regulating the proliferation, differentiation, and response of lymphocyte subsets. 

IFN-γ exerts its action by first binding to a heterodimeric receptor consisting of two chains, IFNGR1 and IFNGR2, causing its dimerization and the activation of specific Janus family kinases (JAK1 and JAK2) [4, 5]. Two STAT1 molecules then associate with this ligand-activated receptor complex and are activated by phosphorylation. Activated STAT1 forms homodimers and are translocated to the nucleus where they bind interferon-gamma-activated sites (GAS) in the promoter of IFN-γ inducible genes.
