Preparation and Storage
Stability and Storage
Shipped on Dry Ice. Store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid freeze / thaw cycle.
Constituent: 100% Tris buffered saline
Lyophilized from a 0.2µm filtered solution.
This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.
ReconstitutionA quick spin of the vial followed by reconstitution in distilled water to a concentration not less than 0.1 mg/mL. This solution can then be diluted into other buffers.
- Hematopoietin 1
FunctionProduced by activated macrophages, IL-1 stimulates thymocyte proliferation by inducing IL-2 release, B-cell maturation and proliferation, and fibroblast growth factor activity. IL-1 proteins are involved in the inflammatory response, being identified as endogenous pyrogens, and are reported to stimulate the release of prostaglandin and collagenase from synovial cells.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the IL-1 family.
DomainThe similarity among the IL-1 precursors suggests that the amino ends of these proteins serve some as yet undefined function.
Cellular localizationSecreted. The lack of a specific hydrophobic segment in the precursor sequence suggests that IL-1 is released by damaged cells or is secreted by a mechanism differing from that used for other secretory proteins.
