Rabbit anti Human Interleukin-17 antibody
recognizes human IL-17 (Interleukin-17/17A), also known as Cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated antigen 8 or CTLA-8. Interleukin-17 is a homodimer of two 132 amino acid chains resulting oin a ~32 kDa disulfide-linked cytokine belonging to the IL-17 family (classified as IL-17A to IL-17F) which signals through the IL-17 receptor (IL-17R/CDw217).
IL-17 is produced primarily by activated CD4+ T cells and induces a variety of target cells to secrete inflammatory cytokines, including IL-1beta, IL-6, TNF-α, IFN-&gamma, and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor, as well as synergizing with other inflammatory cytokines and agonists. The role of IL-17 in bone metabolism has become a focus area for studies into Rheumatoid Arthritis, in which levels of IL-17 are significantly increased and may contribute to bone destruction (Ziolkowska et al. 2000
- Target Species
- Product Form
- Purified IgG - lyophilised
- Reconstitute with 0.1ml distilled water
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. For long term storage the addition of 0.09% sodium azide is recommended.
N.B. For functional studies do not add sodium azide

Applications of IL-17 antibody
|Functional Assays 1
|Immunohistology - Paraffin 2
- 1 To yield one-half maximal inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of hIL-17A (50.0 ng/ml).
- 2 This product requires antigen retrieval using heat treatment prior to staining of paraffin sections. Sodium citrate buffer pH 6.0 is recommended for this purpose.
Where this antibody has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
- This purified human IL-17 antibody may be used in an ELISA with recombinant human IL-17 (PHP098) as the standard.
- Western Blotting
- This antibody may be used in Western Blotting under either reducing or non-reducing conditions with recombinant human IL-17 (PHP098) as the positive control.
