Animal-Free Cytokines

Animal-Free Recombinant Human IL-17A

Product Details

Catalog Number: AF-200-17
Description:

The originally described IL-17 protein, now known as IL-17A, is a homodimer of two 136 amino acid chains that are secreted by activated T-cells, which act on stromal cells to induce production of proinflammatory and hematopoietic bioactive molecules.  Today, IL-17 represents a family of structurally-related cytokines that share a highly conserved C-terminal region, but differ from one another in their N-terminal regions and in their distinct biological roles.  The six known members of this family, IL-17A through IL-17F, are secreted as homodimers.  IL-17A exhibits cross-species bioactivity between human and murine cells.  Recombinant Human IL-17A is a 31.3 kDa, disulfide-linked homodimer of two 137 amino acid, polypeptide chains.
