Background Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a potent lymphoid cell growth that affects B lymphocytes, T-lymphocytes and hybridoma cells. It will also a affect cytotoxic T-cells in combination with other factors such as IL-2 and gamma-interferon.
Storage The lyophilized IL-6, although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, is best stored desiccated at -20°C.
Reconstituted Il-6 should be stored in working aliquots at -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.
Recombinant human IL-6 produced in E. coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide containing 184 amino acid residues.
Biological activity:
The ED50 as determined by dose-dependent stimulation of murine hybridoma B9 cells is in  the range of 2-10 pg/ml.
Buffer System:
Endotoxin level:
< 0.1 ng per µg (IEU/µg) of rh IL-6
>98% pure by RP-HPLC, Anion-exchange FPLC, Silverstain.
Lyophilized purified protein.
The lyophilized IL-6 is soluble in water and most aqueous buffers. It should be reconstituted in water to a concentration not less than 0.1 mg/ml.
This solution can then be stored at 2-8°C for future use or diluted into other buffered solutions. Further dilutions should be made into buffer containing carrier protein or medium containing serum.
