Description: Interleukin-1 alpha Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is single, a non-glycosylated, Polypeptide chain containing 159 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 18022 Dalton. The IL-1A is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Protein Derived From: Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance: Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Purity: Greater than 97.0% as determined by:(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Stability: Lyophilized Interleukin-1 alpha although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution IL-1a should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Biological Activity: The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependant stimulation of murine D10S cells is < 0.001 ng/ml, corresponding to a Specific Activity of 1 x 109 IU/mg.

Solubility: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Interleukin 1 alpha in sterile 18MOmega-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Protein content: Protein quantitation was carried out by two independent methods:1. UV spectroscopy at 280 nm using the absorbency value of 1.13 as the extinction coefficient for a 0.1% (1mg/ml) solution. This value is calculated by the PC GENE computer analysis program of protein sequences (IntelliGenetics). 2. Analysis by RP-HPLC, using a standard solution of IL-1 as a Reference Standard.
