Interleukin-17B Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a homodimeric, non-disulfide-linked polypeptide chain containing a total of 322 amino acids (2 chains of 161aa) and having a molecular mass of 36.5kDa. The IL-17B is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
IL-17 family members are glycoproteins secreted as dimers which induce local cytokine production and recruit granulocytes to sites of inflammation. The IL-17 family is comprised of at least six pro-inflammatory cytokines that share a conserved cysteine-knot structure but diverge at the N-terminus. IL-17 is induced by IL-15 and IL-23, mostly in activated CD4+ T cells distinct from Th1 or Th2 cells. IL-17B binds the IL-17B receptor, but not the IL-17 receptor; it is most homologous with IL-17D, which is expressed by resting CD4+ T cells and CD19+ B cells. IL17B Diseases associated with IL17B include spondyloarthropathy, and neuronitis, and among its related super-pathways are Mucin expression in CF via IL-6, IL-17 signaling pathways and STAT3 Pathway.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Interleukin-17B was Lyophilized from a 0.2
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Interleukin 17B in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100
Lyophilized Interleukin 17B althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18C. Upon reconstitution IL17B should be stored at 4C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
