Rabbit anti Human interleukin-17F antibody recognizes human IL-17F (interleukin-17F), a disulphide-linked homodimer consisting of two 133 amino acid chains, which belongs to the IL-17 gene family and shares the highest sequence homology with IL-17A.
IL-17F is expressed by activated CD4+ T-cells and monocytes, and acts as a stimulator of cytokine production, including granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), IL-6 and IL-8. IL-7F also stimulates the production of IL-2, MCP-1 (monocyte chemotactic protein-1) and TGFB (Transforming growth factor beta) by endothelial cells, and inhibits endothelial cell angiogenesis.
Rabbit anti Human interleukin-17F antibody (AHP1283) has been used in neutralisation assays where 50% inhibition (ND50) of the biological activity of 50ng/ml of human IL-17F was achieved using 0.9-1.2μg/ml of antibody.
- Target Species
- Product Form
- Purified IgG - lyophilised
- Reconstitute with 0.1ml distilled water. For long term storage the addition of 0.09% sodium azide is recommended.
N.B. For functional studies do not add sodium azide.
- Antiserum Preparation
- Antisera to human IL-17F were raised by repeated immunisations of rabbits with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG was prepared by affinity chromatography.

- Phosphate buffered saline
- Preservative Stabilisers
- None present
- Recombinant human IL-17F.
- Approx. Protein Concentrations
- IgG concentration 1.0mg/ml
- Prior to reconstitution store at +4oC.
After reconstitution store at -20oC
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
