IFN-γ is a dimerized soluble cytokine that is the only member of the type II class of interferons. The importance of IFNγ in the immune system stems in part from its ability to inhibit viral replication directly, and most importantly from its immunostimulatory and immunomodulatory effects. As reported, IFNγ is an important activator of human monocytic THP-1 cells. Therefore, THP-1 cells were incubated in RPMI-1640 with various concentration of IFN-γ, then cells were observed by inverted microscope everyday. After stimulated with IFN-γ (2 ng/ml) for 5 days, morphological changes occurred in THP-1 cells which displayed the shape of fusiform or polygon and were more likely to adhere.
Lyophilized from 20 mM Tris (pH 8.0) with 150 mM NaCl, 1 mM EDTA, 1 mM DTT, 0.01% SKL, 5% Trehalose, Proclin300. Reconstitute with 20 mM Tris and 150 mM NaCl (pH 8.0) to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Do not vortex.
For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), store at 4ºC. For long-term storage, store at -20ºC or below. After reconstitution, keep as concentrated solution.Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
