|Molecular weight||22 kDa|
|PDF datasheet||View Datasheet|
|Manufacturer||Acris Antibodies GmbH|
|Material safety datasheet||MSDS for Proteins (de)|
|Purity||> 95 % Purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques, sterile filtered, purity > 95.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
|Add. information||Protein quantitation was carried out by two independent methods:
1. UV spectroscopy at 280 nm using the absorbency value of 0.55 as the extinction coefficient for a 0.1% (1mg/ml) solution. This value is calculated by the PC GENE computer analysis program of protein sequences (IntelliGenetics).
2. Analysis by RP-HPLC, using a standard solution of IL-6 as a Reference Standard.
|Background||Interleukin-6 is a potent pro-inflammatory cytokine primarily produced by activated T cells and an assortment of other cells including endothelial cells and macrophages. IL-6 affects B and T lymphocytes and has been shown to have a role in host defense, acute phase reactions, immune responses and hematopoiesis.|
|Concentration||1 mg/ml (prior to lyophil.)|
|Storage||Lyophilized product is stable at room temperature for one month, should be stored desiccated below -20 °C. Upon reconstitution it should be stored at 2 - 8 °C up to one week and for future use below -20 °C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1 % HSA or BSA). Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
Shelf life: one year from despatch.
