Introduction

Interleukin-8 (IL-8) is a chemokine produced by macrophages and other cell types such as epithelial cells. It is also synthesized by endothelial cells, which store IL-8 in their storage vesicles, the Weibel-Palade bodies.When first encountering an antigen, the primary cells to encounter it are the macrophages who phagocytose the particle. Upon processing, they release chemokines to signal other immune cells to come in to the site of inflammation. IL-8 is one such chemokine. It serves as a chemical signal that attracts neutrophils at the site of inflammation, and therefore is also known as Neutrophil Chemotactic Factor.

Description

IL 8 Rhesus Macaque Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 79 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 9.1kDa.
The IL 8 Rhesus Macaque is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

Lyophilized from a 0.2µm filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4.

Solubility

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized IL-8 in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Stability

Lyophilized IL-8 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution IL-8 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Purity

Greater than 97.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.

Amino acid sequence

AVLPRSAKEL RCECIKTYSK PFHPKFIKEL RVIESGPHCA NTEIIVKLSD GRELCLDPKE PWVQRVVEKF VKRAENQNP

Biological Activity

Determined by its ability to chemoattract human peripheral blood neutrophils using a concentration range of 50-150ng/ml, corresponding to a Specific Activity of 6,667-20,000IU/mg.
