|Description||Anti-Human IL-6 (RABBIT) Antibody|
|Application ||WB, IP, E, IC|
|Application Note||ELISA 1:1,000-1:5,000|
Western Blot 1:500-1:2,000
|Physical State||Liquid (sterile filtered)|
|Buffer||0.02 M Potassium Phosphate, 0.15 M Sodium Chloride, pH 7.2|
|Immunogen||This whole rabbit serum was prepared by repeated immunizations with recombinant human IL-6 produced in E.coli.|
|Shipping Condition||Dry Ice|
|Purity||Anti-IL-6 antiserum detects recombinant and native IL-6 present in body fluids and cell supernatants in various assays (ie. IL-1 stimulated IL-6 production from fibroblasts). In Western blot analysis of natural cell products or human body fluids, multiple bands of IL-6 will appear due to the variable amount of glycosylation on the molecule. The antiserum is also useful for neutralization of human of IL-6 activity in bioassays. For neutralization, incubate the sample with a 1:400 dilution of the antiserum for at least 4 hours before being tested. A control of similarly diluted normal rabbit IgG (heat inactivated) is recommended. In neutralization experiments in vitro, this antibody does not result in enhanced activity of IL-6. However, because antibodies to IL-6 may act as a soluble receptor in vivo, some antibodies to IL-6 act as carriers and enhance IL-6 activity. This product has minimal reactivity with mouse IL-6.|
|Storage Condition||Store vial at -20° C prior to opening. Aliquot contents and freeze at -20° C or below for extended storage. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing. Centrifuge product if not completely clear after standing at room temperature. This product is stable for several weeks at 4° C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use.|
|Precautions Note||This product is for research use only and is not intended for therapeutic or diagnostic applications.|

Anti IL-6 Antibody recognizes IL-6 that is a secreted cytokine with a wide variety of biological functions. IL-6 is a potent inducer of the acute phase response and plays an essential role in the final differentiation of B-cells into Ig-secreting cells Involved in lymphocyte and monocyte differentiation. IL-6 induces myeloma and plasmacytoma growth and induces nerve cells differentiation and acts on B-cells, T-cells, hepatocytes, hematopoeitic progenitor cells and cells of the CNS. IL-6 also acts as a myokine. It is discharged into the bloodstream after muscle contraction and acts to increase the breakdown of fats and to improve insulin resistance. Anti-IL-6 antibody is ideal for investigators involved in Immunology and Cancer research
