Recombinant Human IL6 protein

Cat.No. : IL6-12H
Product Overview : Recombinant Human IL6 protein was expressed in Escherichia coli.
Description : Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is an interleukin that in humans is encoded by the IL-6 gene and acts as both a pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokine. It is secreted by T cells and macrophages to stimulate immune response. Furthermore, It plays an essential role in the final differentiation of B-cells into Ig-secreting cells involved in lymphocyte and monocyte differentiation. It also induces myeloma and plasmacytoma growth and induces nerve cells differentiation acts on B-cells, T-cells, hepatocytes, hematopoietic progenitor cells and cells of the CNS. The human IL-6 is a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 183 amino acids and it signals through a cell-surface type I cytokine receptor complex consisting of the ligand-binding IL-6Rα chain (CD126), and the signal- transducing component gp130 (also called CD130). The human IL-6 shares about 40% a.a. sequence identity with mouse and rat IL-6 and it is equally active on mouse and rat cells.

Form : Lyophilized from a 0.2μm filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4.
Bio-activity : Assay #1: Fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by a cell proliferation assay using IL-6-dependent murine 7TD1 cells is less than 0.1 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 1.0 × 107 IU/mg.
Assay #2: Fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by a cell proliferation assay using IL-6-dependent murine T1165 cells is less than 0.8 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 1.25 × 106 IU/mg.

Endotoxin : Less than 1.0 EU/µg of rHuIL-6 as determined by LAL method.
Purity : >96% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analysis.
Storage : Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles. 12 months from date of receipt, -20 to -70 centigrade as supplied. 1 month, 2 to 8 centigrade under sterile conditions after reconstitution. 3 months, -20 to -70 centigrade under sterile conditions after reconstitution.
Reconstitution : We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute in sterile distilled water or aqueous buffer containing 0.1 % BSA to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Stock solutions should be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at ≤-20 centigrade. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.
