Target

  • Function

    Cytokine 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 disease

    Genetic 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 similarities

    Belongs to the IL-6 superfamily.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    N- and O-glycosylated.
  • Cellular localization

    Secreted.

  • Flow cytometric analysis of 4% paraformaldehyde-fixed, 90% methanol-permeabilized HUVEC (human umbilical vein endothelial cell line) treated with lipopolysaccharide (0.5 μg/ml) for 24h and Brefeldin A (300 ng/ml) for 20h (red) / untreated control (green) cells  labeling IL6 with ab233706 at 1/500 compared with a Rabbit monoclonal IgG (ab172730) (black) and an unlabeled control (cells without incubation with primary antibody and secondary antibody) (blue). Goat anti rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488, ab150077), at 1/2000 dilution was used as the secondary antibody.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab233706).

  • IL6 was immunoprecipitated from 0.35 mg HUVEC (human umbilical vein endothelial cell line) treated with lipopolysaccharide (0.5 µg/ml) for 24h and Brefeldin A (300 ng/ml) for 20h, whole cell lysate with ab233706 at 1/30 dilution. Western blot was performed from the immunoprecipitate using ab233706 at 1/1000 dilution. VeriBlot for IP Detection Reagent (HRP) (ab131366), was used for detection at 1/10000 dilution.

    Lane 1: HUVEC treated with lipopolysaccharide (0.5 µg/ml) for 24h and Brefeldin A (300 ng/ml) for 20h, whole cell lysate 10 µg (Input).
    Lane 2: ab233706 IP in HUVEC treated with lipopolysaccharide (0.5 µg/ml) for 24h and Brefeldin A (300 ng/ml) for 20h, whole cell lysate.
    Lane 3: Rabbit monoclonal IgG (ab172730) instead of ab233706 in HUVEC treated with lipopolysaccharide (0.5 µg/ml) for 24h and Brefeldin A (300 ng/ml) for 20h, whole cell lysate.

    Blocking and dilution buffer and concentration: 5% NFDM/TBST.
    Exposure time: 5 seconds.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab233706).

  • Immunofluorescent analysis of 4% paraformaldehyde-fixed, 0.1% Triton X-100 permeabilized HUVEC (human umbilical vein endothelial cell line) cells labeling IL6 with ab233706 at 1/50 dilution, followed by Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150077) secondary antibody at 1/1000 dilution (green). Confocal image showing cytoplasmic staining in HUVEC cells treated with lipopolysaccharide (0.5 μg/ml) for 24h and Brefeldin A (300 ng/ml) for 20h. The nuclear counterstain is DAPI (blue). Tubulin is detected with Anti-alpha Tubulin antibody [DM1A] - Microtubule Marker (Alexa Fluor® 594) (ab195889) at 1/200 dilution (red).

    Secondary antibody only control: Used PBS instead of primary antibody, secondary antibody is Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150077) secondary antibody at 1/1000 dilution.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab233706).
