  • 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.
  • Information by UniProt

Customer reviews and Q&As

Question
Answer



Dieses Protein muss in 5-10mM Essigsäure (Acetic acid) aufgenommen werden damit eine volle Solubilisierung gewährleistet werden kann. Wir empfehlen eine Endkonzentration des Proteins von 0.1-0.5 mg/ml.

Danach kann es weiter mit PBS oder jedem anderen wässrige Puffer verdünnt werden. Das sollte den pH dann auch wieder auf physiologische Ebene zurückbringen

Nach dem Verdünnen empfehlen wir das Protein zu aliquotieren und bei -80C zu lagern, da das Protein aktiv ist.
