|英文名||Recombinant Murine Interleukin-6|
|分子量||Approximately 21.7 kDa, a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 188 amino acids.|
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-6Rα 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.

|Physical Appearance||Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.|
|Purity||> 97 % by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses.|
|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.|
|Formulation||Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS, pH 7.4.|
|Endotoxin||Less than 1 EU/μg 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 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Stock solutions should be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at ≤ -20 °C. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.|
