Official Full Name Recombinant Murine Interleukin-6 (rMuIL-6)
Squence Squence of Recombinant Murine Interleukin-6
Synonyms B-cell hybridoma growth factor, Interleukin HP-1.
Accession Number P08505
GeneID 16193
Summary Interleukin-6 (IL-6) encoded by the IL-6 gene, acts as both a pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokine. It is secreted by T cells and macrophages to stimulate immune response. It plays an essential role in the final differentiation of B-cells 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 mouse 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 mouse IL-6 shares 40 % and 85 % a.a. sequence identity with human and rat IL-6 and it is equally active on human and rat cells.
Source Escherichia coli.
Molecular Weight Approximately 21.7 kDa, a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 188 amino acids.
Biological Activity Fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of the proliferation of IL-6-dependent murine 7TD1 cells is less than 0.02 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 5 × 107 IU/mg.
Appearance Sterile filtered white lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Formulation Lyophilized from a 0.2 um filtered solution in 30 mM Acetic Acid, pH 3.0, 150 mM NaCl, 5 % Trehalose, 0.02 % Tween-20.
Endotoxin Less than 1 EU/ug of rMuIL-6 as determined by LAL method.
Reconstitution We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute in sterile distilled water or aqueous buffer containing 0.1 % BSA to a concentration of 0.1 mg/mL. Stock solutions should be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at ≤ -20 °C. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.
Stability and Storage Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.- 12 months from date of receipt, -20 to -70 °C as supplied.- 1 month, 2 to 8 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.- 3 months, -20 to -70 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.
