Specifications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab73200 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

  • Biological activityBiological Activity: The ED50= 0.03-0.1 ng/mL. The biological activity is determined by measuring the dose-dependant proliferation of IL6 dapendent B9 cells.
  • Applications

    Functional Studies

    SDS-PAGE

  • Purity> 95 % SDS-PAGE.
    ab73200 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques. Purity is greater than 95.0% as determined by analysis by RP-HPLC and SDS-PAGE.
  • FormLyophilised

Preparation and Storage

  • Stability and Storage

    Shipped at 4°C. Store at -80°C. Avoid freeze / thaw cycle. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein on reconstitution (0.1% HSA or BSA).

    Preservative: None

    This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.

  • ReconstitutionReconstitute in 100mM acetic acid to 1.0 mg/mL and incubate for 30 minutes at room temperature to regain full activity, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

  • FunctionCytokine with a wide variety of biological functions. It is a potent inducer of the acute phase response. Plays an essential role in the final differentiation of B-cells into Ig-secreting cells Involved in lymphocyte and monocyte differentiation. It induces myeloma and plasmacytoma growth and induces nerve cells differentiation Acts on B-cells, T-cells, hepatocytes, hematopoeitic progenitor cells and cells of the CNS. Also acts as a myokine. It is discharged into the bloodstream after muscle contraction and acts to increase the breakdown of fats and to improve insulin resistance.
  • Involvement in diseaseGenetic variations in IL6 are associated with susceptibility to rheumatoid arthritis systemic juvenile (RASJ) [MIM:604302]. An inflammatory articular disorder with systemic-onset beginning before the age of 16. It represents a subgroup of juvenile arthritis associated with severe extraarticular features and occasionally fatal complications. During active phases of the disorder, patients display a typical daily spiking fever, an evanescent macular rash, lymphadenopathy, hepatosplenomegaly, serositis, myalgia and arthritis.
    Note=A IL6 promoter polymorphism is associated with a lifetime risk of development of Kaposi sarcoma in HIV-infected men.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the IL-6 superfamily.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    N- and O-glycosylated.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.
  • Information by UniProt

Thank you for contacting us. The ED50 is an expression of activity at 50% of its maximum response. Specific activity is just another way of conveying the activity of the protein. To calculate a specific activity, divide 1 x 106 by the ED50 in ng/ml...
