Recombinant Human Interleukin-6/IL-6
Recombinant Human Interleukin-6 is produced by our E.coli expression system and the target gene encoding Pro29-Met212 is expressed. Bon Opus Cat. #C009
BackgroundCytokines of the IL6/GCSF/MGF family are glycoproteins of about 170 to 180 amino acid residues that contain four conserved cysteine residues involved in two disulfide bonds. They have a compact, globular fold (similar to other interleukins), stabilized by the 2 disulfide bonds. One half of the structure is dominated by a 4 alpha-helix bundle with a left-handed twist; the helices are anti-parallel, with 2 overhand connections, which fall into a 2-stranded anti-parallel beta-sheet. The fourth alpha helix is important to the biological activity of the molecule. Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is an important proinflammatory and immunoregulatory cytokine expressed by various cells. Interleukin-6 has been shown to inhibit the growth of early stage and to promote the proliferation of advanced stage melanoma cells in vitro.
FormulationLyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of 20mM HAc-NaAc, 150mM NaCl, pH 5.0.
