1. Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. Immobilized recombinant human IL-6 at 8 μg/ml (100 μl/well) can bind recombinant human IL6R with a linear range of 1.25-20.0 ng/mL. 2. Measured in a cell proliferation assay using TF-1 human erythroleukemic cells. The ED50 for this effect is 0.75-3 ng/mL. The specific activity of Recombinant Human IL-6 is approximately 0.35 × 105 IU/μg.
A DNA sequence encoding the mature form of human IL6 (NP_000591.1) (Val 30-Met 212) was expressed, with an initial Met at the N-terminus.
The recombinant human IL6 consists of 184 amino acids and migrates with an apparent molecular mass of 20.3 kDa as estimated in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4 1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA. 2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
Please refer to the specific buffer information in the hard copy of CoA.
In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature. Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
稳定性 & 储存条件
Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃ Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.
Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a multifunctional α-helical cytokine that regulates cell growth and differentiation of various tissues, which is known particularly for its role in the immune response and acute phase reactions. IL-6 protein is secreted by a variety of cell types including T cells and macrophages as phosphorylated and variably glycosylated molecule. It exerts actions through the its heterodimeric receptor composed of IL-6R that lacks the tyrosine/kinase domain and binds IL-6 with low affinity, and ubiquitously expressed glycoprotein 13 (gp13) that binds the IL-6. IL-6R complex with high affinity and thus transduces signals. IL-6 is also involved in hematopoiesis, bone metabolism, and cancer progression, and has been defined an essential role in directing transition from innate to acquired immunity.
