|Calculated MW||45421 Da|
|Antigen Region||273-300 aa|
|Other Names||Interleukin-1 receptor type 2, IL-1R-2, IL-1RT-2, IL-1RT2, CD121 antigen-like family member B, CDw121b, IL-1 type II receptor, Interleukin-1 receptor beta, IL-1R-beta, Interleukin-1 receptor type II, CD121b, Interleukin-1 receptor type 2, membrane form, mIL-1R2, mIL-1RII, Interleukin-1 receptor type 2, soluble form, sIL-1R2, sIL-1RII, IL1R2, IL1RB|
|Target/Specificity||This IL1R2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 273-300 amino acids from the Central region of human IL1R2.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||IL1R2 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Non-signaling receptor for IL1A, IL1B and IL1RN. Reduces IL1B activities. Serves as a decoy receptor by competetive binding to IL1B and preventing its binding to IL1R1. Also modulates cellular response through non-signaling association with IL1RAP after binding to IL1B. IL1R2 (membrane and secreted forms) preferentially binds IL1B and poorly IL1A and IL1RN. The secreted IL1R2 recruits secreted IL1RAP with high affinity; this complex formation may be the dominant mechanism for neutralization of IL1B by secreted/soluble receptors.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform Short: Secreted|

The protein encoded by this gene is a cytokine receptor that belongs to the interleukin 1 receptor family. This protein binds interleukin alpha (IL1A), interleukin beta (IL1B), and interleukin 1 receptor, type I(IL1R1/IL1RA), and acts as a decoy receptor that inhibits the activity of its ligands. Interleukin 4 (IL4) is reported to antagonize the activity of interleukin 1 by inducing the expression and release of this cytokine. This gene and three other genes form a cytokine receptor gene cluster on chromosome 2q12. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been reported.
