Rabbit Monoclonal Antibody to Human Interleukin 17 Receptor A
IL17RA ( Interleukin 17 receptor A ), also known as IL17R and CDw217, is a ubiquitous type I membrane glycoprotein that binds with low affinity to interleukin 17A (IL17A). IL17A and its receptor play a pathogenic role in many inflammatory and autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. IL17A binds to a type I cell surface receptor called IL17R of which there are at least three variants IL17RA, IL17RB, and IL17RC. IL17RA is a widely expressed glycoprotein that plays a central role in inflammatory responses. IL17R mRNA exhibits a broad tissue distribution, and has been detected in virtually all cells and tissues tested. Human IL17RA is an 866 amino acid (aa) type I membrane glycoprotein with a 293 aa extracellular domain, a 21 aa carboxy-proximal transmembrane domain, and a 525 aa cytoplasmic tail. The aa sequence of human IL17RA is 69% identical to the mouse IL17R. Within the extracellular domain, human IL17RA shares 72% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat IL17RA. IL17RA associates with IL17RC to form a signaling receptor complex for IL17 and IL17F. Ligand and IL17RA ligation promotes T cell activation and the production of IL-6, G-CSF, SCF, and multiple proinflammatory chemokines.
Human IL17RA / CD217. No cross-reactivity with human cell lysate ( 293 cell line ) in WB and ELISA.
Recombinant human IL17RA protein
Western blot: This antibody can be used at 1 - 2 μg/mL with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect human IL17RAin WB. Using a DAB detection system, the detection limit for human IL17RA is approximately 0.125 ng/lane under non-reducing conditions and reducing conditionsDirect ELISA: This antibody can be used at 0.1 - 0.2 μg/mL with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect human IL17RA. The detection limit for human IL17RA is approximately 0.00245 ng/well
This antibody was obtained from a rabbit immunized with purified, human cell-derived, recombinant human IL17RA ( rh IL17RA ; NP_055154.3 ; Met 1 - Trp 320 ).
0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with 5% trehalose
