|Application ||WB, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||NP_000632, 10834994|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 20 kDa |
Observed: 19 kDa
|Application Notes||IL-11 antibody can be used for the detection of IL-11 by Western blot at 1 - 2 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry at 10 µg/ml.|
|Target/Specificity||IL-11; IL-11 antibody is human specific. At least two isoforms of IL-11 are known to exist; this antibody will only detect the longest isoform of IL-11.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||IL-11 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year.|
|Precautions||IL-11 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Cytokine that stimulates the proliferation of hematopoietic stem cells and megakaryocyte progenitor cells and induces megakaryocyte maturation resulting in increased platelet production (PubMed:2145578). Also promotes the proliferation of hepatocytes in response to liver damage. Binding to its receptor formed by IL6ST and either IL11RA1 or IL11RA2 activates a signaling cascade that promotes cell proliferation (PubMed:12919066). Signaling leads to the activation of intracellular protein kinases and the phosphorylation of STAT3.|

Interleukin 11 is a pleiotropic cytokine that has multiple effects on both hematopoietic and nonhematopoietic cells. Many of the biological effects described for IL-11 overlap those for IL-6 (1). It directly stimulates the proliferation of hematopoietic stem cells and megakaryocyte progenitor cells and induces megakaryocyte maturation resulting in increased platelet production (2). IL-11 promotes the proliferation of hepatocytes in response to liver damage. IL-11 binds to its receptor formed by IL6ST and either IL11RA1 or IL11RA2 (3). Clinically it is used to prevent severe thrombocytopenia and the reduction of the need for platelet transfusion following myelo-suppressive chemotherapy (4).
