Interleukin-8 Canine Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 79 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 9.1kDa. The IL8 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Interleukin-8 (IL-8) is a chemokine 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, the Weibel-Palade bodies.When first encountering an antigen, the primary cells to encounter it are the macrophages who phagocytose the particle. Upon processing, they release chemokines to signal other immune cells to come in to the site of inflammation. IL-8 is one such chemokine. It serves as a chemical signal that attracts neutrophils at the site of inflammation, and therefore is also known as Neutrophil Chemotactic Factor.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Lyophilized from a 0.2
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized IL-8 in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100
Lyophilized IL-8 althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution IL-8 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
