anti-human IFN-α mAb MT1, purified

Monoclonal antibody specific for IFN-α2

This monoclonal antibody enables sensitive and specific detection of human IFN-α (subtype 2) in immunoassays such as ELISA and ELISpot.

We recommend MT1 as capture antibody in ELISA and ELISpot in combination with biotinylated detection antibody MT2. See Related products.


Analyte Information

IFN-α2
Interferon-α (IFN-α, also known as IFN-alpha, IFN-a, IFNA and Interferon-alpha) is a type I interferon and exists as 13 subtypes: IFN-α 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 13, 14, 16, 17 and 21. Like the other subtypes, interferon-α2 (IFN-α2, also known as IFN-alpha2, IFN-a2, IFNA2 and Interferon-alpha2) is mainly produced by virus infected cells after sensing the presence of danger signals such as viral DNA or RNA. The binding of IFN-α2 to its receptor thus initiates an anti-viral response, but also anti-tumor effects have been shown. Being the first to be discovered, IFN-α2 is the most widely studied subtype and it has been used as a cytokine therapy versus hepatitis C virus infections.
