IFN-gamma Protein, Human is a cytokine with potent immunomodulatory, antiviral and antitumor activities.


Human Interferon-gamma (hIFNγ) is naturally produced by CD4+ T helper cell type 1 (Th1) lymphocytes, CD8+ cytotoxic lymphocytes, natural killer (NK) cells, B cells, NKT cells, and professional antigen-presenting cells (APCs). Secretion of hIFNγ by NK cells and APCs is important in early host reactions against infection while production of hIFNγ by T lymphocytes is important in the adaptive immune response. hIFNγ shows antiviral and antitumor activity and is involved in complex interactions of cellular metabolism and differentiation[1]. Interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) is a cytokine with potent immunomodulatory propertiy. IFN-γ activates cells via a different receptor than IFN-α and IFN-β, which accounts for the different physiological properties of the proteins[2].

It is not recommended to reconstitute to a concentration less than 100 μg/mL in ddH2O. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% BSA, 5% HSA, 10% FBS or 5% Trehalose).

Storage & Stability

Stored at -20°C for 2 years. After reconstitution, it is stable at 4°C for 1 week or -20°C for longer. It is recommended to freeze aliquots at -20°C or -80°C for extended storage.


Room temperature in continental US; may vary elsewhere.

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.

  • Reconstitution Calculator

  • Dilution Calculator

  • Specific Activity Calculator

The reconstitution calculator equation

Volume (to add to vial) = Mass (in vial) ÷ Desired Reconstitution Concentration

Volume (to add to vial) = Mass (in vial) ÷ Desired Reconstitution Concentration
= ÷

The dilution calculator equation

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)

This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)
× = ×
C1   V1   C2   V2

The specific activity calculator equation

Specific Activity (Unit/mg) = 106 ÷ Biological Activity (ED50)

Specific Activity (Unit/mg) = 106 ÷ Biological Activity (ED50)
Unit/mg = 106 ÷ ng/mL
