Animal-Free Cytokines

Animal-Free Recombinant Human IL-1β

Product Details

Catalog Number: AF-200-01B
Description:

IL-1β is a proinflammatory cytokine produced in a variety of cells, including monocytes, tissue macrophages, keratinocytes, and other epithelial cells.  Both IL-1α and IL-1β bind to the same receptor and have similar, if not identical, biological properties.  These cytokines have a broad range of activities including the stimulation of thymocyte proliferation by inducing IL-2 release, B-cell maturation and proliferation, mitogenic FGF-like activity, and the release of prostaglandin and collagenase from synovial cells.  However, whereas IL-1β is a secreted cytokine, IL-1α is predominantly a cell-associated cytokine.  Recombinant Human IL-1β is a 17.3 kDa protein containing 153 amino acid residues.

Manufactured using all Animal-Free reagents.
