Interleukin-6 Porcine Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 184 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 21,113 Dalton. The IL-6 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Interleukin-6 is a potent pro-inflammatory cytokine primarily produced by activated T cells and an assortment of other cells including endothelial cells and macrophages. IL-6 affects B and T lymphocytes and has been shown to have a role in host defense, acute phase reactions, immune responses and hematopoiesis.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The protein was lyophilized containing no additives.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Interleukin 6 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized Interleukin-6 althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution IL6 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Amino Acid Sequence
The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Met-Glu-Arg-Leu-Glu.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependant stimulation of B9 cells is < 0.1 ng/ml, corresponding to a Specific Activity of 10,000,000IU/mg.
