Product Details

Catalogue Number: AF-216-16
Description:

IL-6 is a pleiotropic cytokine that plays an important role in host defense by regulating immune and inflammatory responses.  Produced by T cells, monocytes, fibroblasts, endothelial cells and keratinocytes, IL-6 has diverse biological functions.  It stimulates B cell differentiation and antibody production, synergizes with IL-3 in megakaryocyte development and platelet production, induces expression of hepatic acute-phase proteins, and regulates bone metabolism.  IL-6 signals through the IL-6 receptor system that consists of two chains, IL-6Rα and gp130.  Murine IL-6 is inactive on human cells, while both human and murine are equally active on murine cells.  Recombinant Murine IL-6 is a 21.7 kDa protein containing 188 amino acid residues.
