Novus' biologically active proteins are stringently purified to provide only the safest and most highly effective proteins available. This protein was expressed in E. coli, purified by HPLC, QC tested by SDS-PAGE and Western Blot and validated on appropriate cell lines for bioactivity. All HPLC and bioactivity data is provided for your assurance.
Details of Functionality
Fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by a chemotaxis bioassay using human CXCR2 transfected mouse BaF3 cells is less than 2 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 5.0 x 10^5 IU/mg.
> 97 % pure by SDS-PAGE and HPLC
Less than 1 EU/ug of rHuIL-8, 72a.a./CXCL8 as determined by LAL method.
8.4 kDa. Disclaimer note: The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.
Store at -20 to -70C as supplied. After reconstitution, store at 2 to 8C for 1 month and at -20 to -70C for long term storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Lyophilized from a 0.2 um filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4.
> 97 % pure by SDS-PAGE and HPLC
Recommended to centrifuge prior to opening. Reconstitute in sterile distilled water or aqueous buffer containing 0.1% BSA to a concentration of 0.1-1.0mg/mL. Apportion stock solutions into working aliquots and store at <-20C.
This lyophilized preparation is stable for 12 months from date of receipt at -20 to -70 degrees C, preferably desiccated. Upon reconstitution, the preparation can be stored for 1 month at 2-8 degrees C under sterile conditions, and for 3 months at -20 degrees C to -70 degrees C. Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles. Stock solutions should be aliquoted and stored at < -20 degrees C. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions

Neutrophil-activating protein 1
T cell chemotactic factor
T-cell chemotactic factor
Interleukin-8 (IL-8) is encoded by the IL8 gene and 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. There are many receptors capable to bind IL-8, the most affinity to IL-8 are receptors CXCR1, and CXCR2. As a member of the CXC chemokine family, function of IL-8 is the induction of chemotaxis in its target cells, like neutrophil granulocytes, basophils, and T-cells. IL-8 (72a.a.) has a 5-10-fold higher activity on neutrophil activation, compared to IL-8 (77 a.a.). IL-8 is often associated with inflammation and has been cited as a proinflammatory mediator in gingivitis and psoriasis.
