Rabbit anti Human Interleukin-8 antibody recognizes human IL-8 (Interleukin-8), a 72 amino acid pro-inflammatory CXC chemokine designated CXCL8, secreted by endothelial cells and monocytes, which acts as a major chemoattractant for neutrophils and also T cells and basophils.

IL-8, first isolated from osteosarcoma cells, contains the ELR-motif (N-Terminal Glu-Leu-Arg amino acid sequence) and signals through the CXCR1 and CXCR2 receptors. Cancer studies have demonstrated a role for IL-8 in the angiogenesis and growth of tumours. Previous nomenclature for IL-8 includes neutrophil activating protein 1(NAP-1), granulocyte chemotactic protein 1 (GCP-1), monocyte-derived neutrophil-activating peptide (MONAP) and protein 3-10C.

Reconstitution
Reconstitute with 0.5 ml sterile PBS containing 0.1% Bovine Serum Albumin.
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.
