||Interleukin-1 receptor related protein 2 (IL-1 Rrp2) is a receptor for IL-1F6 which is a proinflammatory member of IL-1 family. IL-1F8, and IL-1F9 also signal through IL-1Rrp2 and IL-1RAcP. IL-1F6, IL-1F8 and Il-1F9 are agonists and, along with their receptor IL-1Rrp2, are highly expressed in epithelial cells suggesting a role in immune defense in the skin and the gastrointestinal (GI) tract including the mouth. Synovial fibroblasts and articular chondrocytes also express IL-1Rrp2 and respond to IL-1F8, indicating a possible role in rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

|State Of Matter:
||>95% by SDS Page and analyzed by silver stain.
||<1.0 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method.
||The predicted molecular weight of Recombinant Human IL-1 Rrp2 is Mr 62.8 kDa. However, the actual molecular weight as observed by migration on SDS Page is Mr 80 kDa.
|Storage And Stability:
||This lyophilized protein is stable for six to twelve months when stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C. After aseptic reconstitution, this protein may be stored at 2°C to 8°C for one month or at -20°C to -70°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles.
