BSF2, HGF, HSF, IFNB2, IL-6.
Interleukin-6 or Il-6 is a cytokine with a large assortment of biological functions. IL-6 it has a crucial part in the last differentiation of b-cells into ig-secreting cells. This cytokine also induces myeloma and plasmacytoma growth. Interleukin-6 induces nerve cells differentiation, among hepatocytes it induces acute phase reactants.
IL6 Human Recombinant produced in Baculovirus is a single glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 189 amino acids (30-212aa) and having a molecular mass of 21.6kDa.(Migrates at 18-28kDa on SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions).
IL6 is fused to a 6 amino acid His-Tag at C-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
IL6 protein (0.5mg/ml) contains Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 10% glycerol.
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks.
Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
The ED50, determined by cell proliferation assay using TF-1 human erythroleukemic cell, is 0.2 - 0.8 ng/ml .
