IL-6 is a cytokine with a wide variety of biological functions: it plays an essential role in the final differentiation of b-cells into ig-secreting cells, it induces myeloma and plasmacytoma growth, it induces nerve cells differentiation, in hepatocytes it induces acute phase reactants.

Storage Lyophilized Interleukin-6 although stable at Rt for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C.
Upon reconstitution IL6 should be stored at 2-8°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles. 
Shelf life: One year from despatch.
Interleukin-6 Human Recombinant produced in CHO (Chinese Hamster Ovary) is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 185 amino acids and migrates at 22 kDa as a glycosilated protein on SDS-PAGE.
The IL6 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Biological activity:
The activity was measured in a cell prolifiration assay using B9 cells. The ED50 for this effect is 8-20 pg/ml.
Buffer System:
Phosphate- Buffered Saline pH 7.4
>97.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Restore the lyophilized Interleukin-6 in sterile 18MΩ-cm-1 H2O not less than 100 μg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
