Preparation
Method
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
IL6 Protein is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by a cell proliferation assay using IL-6-dependent murine 7TD1 cells is less than 0.01 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 1.0 x 10^8 IU/mg.

Gene
IL6
Purity
>95% pure by SDS-PAGE
Endotoxin Note
Less than 1 EU/ug of endotoxin as determined by LAL method.

Applications/Dilutions

Theoretical MW
21.7 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.

Packaging, Storage & Formulations

Storage
Store at -20C. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
Buffer
Lyophilized from a 0.2 um filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4.
Preservative
No Preservative
Concentration
LYOPH
Purity
>95% pure by SDS-PAGE
Reconstitution Instructions
Recommended to centrifuge prior to opening. Reconstitute in 10mM HCl to a concentration of 0.1mg/mL. Apportion stock solutions into working aliquots and store at <-20C.

Notes

This lyophilized preparation is stable at 2-8 degrees C, but should be kept at -20 degrees C for long term storage, preferably desiccated. Upon reconstitution, the preparation is most stable at -20 to -80 degrees C, and can be stored for one week at 2-8 degrees C. For maximal stability, apportion the reconstituted preparation into working aliquots and store at -20 degrees C to -80 degrees C. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

Background

Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is encoded by the IL-6 gene and acts as both a pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokine. It is secreted by T cells and macrophages to stimulate immune response. IL-16 plays an essential role in the final differentiation of Bcells into Ig-secreting cells involved in lymphocyte and monocyte differentiation. It also induces myeloma and plasmacytoma growth and induces nerve cells differentiation acts on B-cells, T-cells, hepatocytes, hematopoietic progenitor cells and cells of the CNS. The rat IL-6 is a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 187 amino acids and it signals through a cell-surface type I cytokine receptor complex consisting of the ligand-binding IL-6Ralpha chain (CD126), and the signal-transducing component gp130 (also called CD130). The rat IL-6 shares 40 % and 85 % aa sequence identity with human and mouse IL-6 and it is equally active on human and mouse cells.
