Introduction

IL17 is a proinflammatory cytokine produced by activated T cells. IL-17 regulates the activities of NF-kappaB and mitogen-activated protein kinases. Interleukin-17 can stimulate the expression of IL6 and cyclooxygenase-2 (PTGS2/COX-2), as well as enhance the production of nitric oxide (NO). High levels of IL-17 are associated with several chronic inflammatory diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and multiple sclerosis.

Description

Interleukin-17 Murine Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a homodimeric, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing a total of 268 (2x134 a.a.) amino acids and having a molecular mass of 30 kDa.
The IL-17 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

Lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution containing no additives.

Solubility

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Interleukin 17 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Stability

Lyophilized Interleukin-17 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution IL17 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Purity

Greater than 98.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Biological Activity

The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependant induction of IL-6 production in cultured mouse NIH 3T3 fibroblasts was found to be 0.4 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of 2,500,000 units/mg.

Protein content

Protein quantitation was carried out by two independent methods:
1. UV spectroscopy at 280 nm using the absorbency value of 0.942 as the extinction coefficient for a 0.1% (1mg/ml) solution. This value is calculated by the PC GENE computer analysis program of protein sequences (IntelliGenetics).
2. Analysis by RP-HPLC, using a standard solution of IL-17 as a Reference Standard.
