||Recombinant full length short soluble form (isoform 2) protein, corresponding to amino acids 20/358 of Human IL6R precursor protein.
||This gene encodes a subunit of the interleukin 6 (IL6) receptor complex. Interleukin 6 is a potent pleiotropic cytokine that regulates cell growth and differentiation and plays an important role in the immune response. The IL6 receptor is a protein complex consisting of this protein and interleukin 6 signal transducer (IL6ST/GP130/IL6-beta), a receptor subunit also shared by many other cytokines. Dysregulated production of IL6 and this receptor are implicated in the pathogenesis of many diseases, such as multiple myeloma, autoimmune diseases and prostate cancer. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been reported. A pseudogene of this gene is found on chromosome 9.
||Isoform 2 is expressed in peripheral blood mononuclear cells and weakly found in urine and serum.
||Lyophilised:Reconstitute to 1mg/ml in distilled water.
||>95% by SDS-PAGE
||The lyophilized protein is stable for a few weeks at room temperature, but best stored at -20°C.
