MABSol® Biotinylated Human IL-6 (IL6-H8218) is expressed from human HEK293 cells. It contains AA Val 30 - Met 212 (Accession # NP_000591). It is the biotinylated form of ActiveMax® Human IL-6 (Cat # IL6-H4218).
Predicted N-terminus: Val 30
The product does NOT contain any epitope tags. The protein has a calculated MW of 20.8 kDa. The protein migrates as 24-27 kDa on a SDS-PAGE gel under reducing (R) condition due to different glycosylation.
The primary amines in the side chains of lysine residues and the N-terminus of the protein are conjugated with biotins using standard chemical labeling method. A standard biotin reagent (13.5 angstroms) is used in this product.
The biotin to protein ratio is 4-5.5 as determined by the HABA assay.
Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.
>95% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in PBS, pH7.4. Normally trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.

Biotinylated Human IL-6, Tag Free on SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) condition. The gel was stained overnight with Coomassie Blue. The purity of the protein is greater than 95%.
Immobilized Human IL-6 R alpha, Fc Tag (Cat. No. ILR-H5259) at 5 μg/mL (100 μL/well) can bind Biotinylated Human IL-6, Tag Free (Cat. No. IL6-H8218) with a linear range of 1-20 ng/mL (QC tested).
Interleukin 6 (IL-6) is also known as HGF, BSF2,HSF, IFNB2 and IL-6, originally identified as a B cell differentiation factor, is a multifunctional cytokine that regulates immune responses, hematopoiesis, acute phase responses, and inflammatory reactions.It is secreted by T cells, macrophages , monocytes, fibroblasts,endothelial cells,et.al. to stimulate immune response to trauma, especially burns or other tissue damage leading to inflammation. Interleukin 6 has been shown to interact with interleukin-6 receptor and glycoprotein. IL-6 is relevant to many disease processes such as diabetes,atherosclerosis, depression,Alzheimer's Disease,systemic,lupus erythematosus,prostate cancer and rheumatoid arthritis. Advanced/metastatic cancer patients have higher levels of IL-6 in their blood.Hence there is an interest in developing anti-IL-6 agents as therapy against many of these diseases.
