|Description||Interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1RA) is a naturally occurring inflammatory inhibitor protein. It inhibits the activity of IL-1α and IL-1β by competitively blocking binding to their type I and type II receptors. IL-1Ra is produced by corneal epithelial cells, monocytes, neutrophils, macrophages, and fibroblasts. Therapeutically, IL-1Ra may help in the treatment of sepsis, cachexia, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic myelogenous leukemia, asthma, psoriasis, and inflammatory bowel disease. Recombinant human IL-1Ra is a 17.2 kDa protein consisting of 153 amino acid residues.|
|BiologicalActivity||Determined by its ability to inhibit the IL-1α stimulation of murine D10S cell. The expected ED50 is 20-40 ng/ml in the presence of 50 pg/ml of IL-1α.|
|Authenticity||Verified by N-terminal and Mass Spectrometry analyses (when applicable).|
|Endotoxin||Endotoxin level is <0.1 ng/ µg of protein (<1EU/ µg).|
|Protein Content||Verified by UV Spectroscopy and/or SDS-PAGE gel.|
|Precautions||Animal-Free Recombinant Human IL-1Ra is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
