Recombinant Bovine interleukin-6 (PBP021) detected using Chicken anti Bovine interleukin-6 (AHP2380) as the capture reagent and Chicken anti Bovine interleukin-6:Biotin (AHP2380B) as the detection reagent followed by Streptavidin:HRP
Recombinant Bovine interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a recombinant protein corresponding to aa 30-208 of native bovine IL-6.
Bovine interleukin-6 is a multifunctional cytokine secreted by a range of cell types, in particular T lymphocytes and macrophages. IL-6 has a range of activities and includes the differentiation of B cells into Ig producing cells, differentiation of lymphocytes and of monocytes. IL-6 functions in both a pro-inflammatory role where it is an important inducer of the accute phase response and also as an anti-inflamatory myokine.
Interleukin-6 induces myeloma growth and is an essential cytokine required for successful hybridoma growth.
Purified recombinant protein - lyophilized
Reconstitute with 20 µl sterile PBS containing 0.1% carrier protein Care should be taken during reconstitution as the protein may appear as a film at the bottom of the vial. Bio-Rad recommend that the vial is gently mixed after reconstitution.
