Description: Interleukin-6 Mouse Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 187 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 21709 Dalton. The IL-6 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Protein Derived From: Escherichia Coli.

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

Purity: Greater than 96.0% as determined by: (a) Analysis by RP-HPLC. (b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Stability: Lyophilized Interleukin-6 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution IL6 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Biological Activity: The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependant stimulation of the proliferation of IL-6-dependent murine 7TD1 cells is < 0.02 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 50,000,000 units/mg.

Solubility: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Mouse Il-6 in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
