||Recombinant Human IL6R /CD126 MS Standard Protein, C13 and N15-labeled (IL6R / CD126, Heavy Labeled) Leu 20 - Pro 365 (Accession # NP_000556.1) was produced in human 293 cells (HEK293).
||Interleukin 6 receptor (IL6R) also known as CD126 (Cluster of Differentiation 126) , is a potent pleiotropic cytokine that regulates cell growth and differentiation of various tissues, and is known particularly for its role in the immune response and acute phase reactions. IL6R is a protein complex consisting of a IL-6 receptor subunit (IL6R) and interleukin 6 signal transducer Glycoprotein 130. IL6R also denotes the human gene encoding this subunit. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been reported. IL6R subunit also shared by many other cytokines. The soluble form of IL6R arises from proteolytic cleavage of membrane-bound IL6Rα, and acts agonistically by making the IL6 ligand accessible to the signal transducer gp130. Dysregulated production of IL6 and IL6R are implicated in the pathogenesis of several inflammatory diseases and malignancies such as multiple myeloma, rheumatoid arthritis, or osteoporosis, and it has been reported that a humanized anti-IL6R monoclonal antibody is a promising agent applicable to the therapeutic approach for IL6 driven diseases. Interleukin-6 receptor has been shown to interact with Interleukin 6 and Ciliary neurotrophic factor.[1-4]
||Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in PBS, pH7.4. Normally Mannitol or Trehalose are added as protectants before lyophilization.
||IL6R / CD126, Heavy Labeled, fused with 6×His tag at the C-terminus, has a calculated MW of 40 kDa. The predicted N-terminus is Leu 20. DTT-reduced Protein migrates as 60-70 kDa due to glycosylation.
||Less than 1.0 EU per μg of the IL6R / CD126, Heavy Labeled by the LAL method.
||>92% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
||Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.No activity loss was observed after storage at:In lyophilized state for 1 year (4oC-8oC); After reconstitution under sterile conditions for 1 month (4oC-8oC) or 3 months (-20oC to -70oC).
