Technical Data
Interferon gamma, Recombinant, Mouse (CHO-Derived)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
This glycosylated interferon is constitutively produced by Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells. The CHO cells have been transformed by a plasmid containing mouse coding sequences for gamma interferon as well as for dihydrofolate reductase. Biochemical analysis of CHO-derived mouse gamma interferon and gamma interferon as produced by mouse splenocytes revealed no structural differences. The major advantage of CHO-cell derived hi-pure recombinant mouse gamma interferon over natural mouse gamma interferon is the absence of contaminating lymphokines. This ensures that the effects observed in experimental results can be attributed exclusively to the hi-pure mouse gamma interferon used.

One unit of Mouse Gamma Interferon approximates the bioactivity contained in one unit of the mouse gamma interferon standard prepared by NIH (Gg02-901-533).

Mouse, CHO-derived

Recommended Dilution:
Use protein stabilized phosphate buffered saline, pH 8. (Do not use fresh serum).
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
