IL-6 Antibody [HRP] Summary
Recombinant human IL-6 produced in E.coli.
This antiserum detects recombinant and native IL-6 present in body fluids and cell supernatants in various assays (ie. IL-1 stimulated IL-6 production from fibroblasts). In Western blot analysis of natural cell products or human body fluids, multiple bands of IL-6 will appear due to the variable amount of glycosylation on the molecule. The antiserum is also useful for neutralization of human of IL-6 activity in bioassays. For neutralization, incubate the sample with a 1:400 dilution of the antiserum for at least 4 hours before being tested. A control of similarly diluted normal rabbit IgG (heat inactivated) is recommended. In neutralization experiments in vitro, this antibody does not result in enhanced activity of IL-6. However, because antibodies to IL-6 may act as a soluble receptor in vivo, some antibodies to IL-6 act as carriers and enhance IL-6 activity.

Immunogen affinity purified
Reconstitute with 50 ul of distilled water to a final concentration of 1.0 mg/ml.
This purified antibody has been tested for use in ELISA and western blotting. Reactivity is also expected in neutralizations, radioimmunoassay and immunohistochemistry. The endotoxin content is estimated - be <10 pg/ul by the LAL method. By western blot a band approximately 23.7 kDa in size corresponding - native human IL-6 protein is expected in the appropriate cell lysate or extract. Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user.
Cross-reactivity reported in scientific literature: Mouse - PMID 23015436; Rat - PMID 25058444

IL-6 is a secreted cytokine with a wide variety of biological functions. It is a potent inducer of the acute phase response and plays an essential role in the final differentiation of B-cells into Ig-secreting cells Involved in lymphocyte and monocyte differentiation. IL-6 induces myeloma and plasmacytoma growth and induces nerve cells differentiation and acts on B-cells, T-cells, hepatocytes, hematopoeitic progenitor cells and cells of the CNS. IL-6 also acts as a myokine. It is discharged into the bloodstream after muscle contraction and acts to increase the breakdown of fats and to improve insulin resistance.
