BufferPBS
ReconstitutionReconstitute the antibody with 500 µl sterile PBS and the final concentration is 200 µg/ml.
Stability and StorageLyophilized samples are stable for 2 years from date of receipt when stored at -70°C. Reconstituted antibody can be aliquoted and stored frozen at < -20 °C for at least for six months without detectable loss of activity.
PreparationThis antibody was produced from a hybridoma (mouse myeloma fused with spleen cells from a rat immunized with purified mouse recombinant protein of IL-6R extracellular domain. The IgG2 fraction of the culture supernatant was purified by Protein A/G affinity chromatography.

DescriptionThe multifunctional factor interleukin 6 (IL-6) exerts its activities through binding to a high-affinity receptor complex consisting of two membrane glycoproteins: an 80 kDa component receptor that binds IL-6 with low affinity (IL-6 R) and a signal-transducing component of 130 kDa (gp 130) that does not bind IL-6 by itself, but is required for high-affinity binding of IL-6 by the complex. A soluble form of the IL-6 R alpha has been found in the urine of healthy adult humans. This soluble receptor apparently arises from proteolytic cleavage of membrane-bound IL-6 R alpha. No naturally-occurring mRNA encoding a truncated form of the IL-6 R alpha has been reported. Soluble forms of human and murine IL-6 R alphas have been constructed, however, by insertion of termination codons into the regions of the IL-6 R alpha cDNAs encoding the external portions of the receptors and prior to the transmembrane domains. These soluble receptors have been expressed in COS-7 and CHO cells and have been shown to bind to IL-6 in solution and to augment the activity of IL-6 as a result of the binding of the IL-6/IL-6 R alpha complex to membrane-bound gp130.
