Detailed product information

Background information

IL-1β is mainly secreted by monocytes and macrophages. IL-1β secretion has also been reported for a variety of other cells, including B cells, NK cells, dendritic cells, astrocytes, and microglial cells. IL-1β acts also on nonimmune system cells such as fibroblasts, vascular endothelial cells, and hepatocytes.

Applications

MACS GMP Recombinant Human IL-1β can be used for a variety of applications, including the
ex vivo
generation of human dendritic cells from enriched CD14
+
monocyte populations.
2–4

Biological activity

  • The specific activity is determined by proliferation assay according to Poole and Gaines-Das
    1
    using D10.G4.1 cells provided by the German Resource Centre for Biological Material (DSMZ). The proliferation assay was calibrated with the first international reference standard for human IL-1β (NIBSC code 86/680) provided by the National Institute for Biological Standards and Control.
  • Minimal specific activity: ≥ 2×
