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.
