Detailed product information

Background information

IL-6 is mainly produced by monocytes and macrophages, but as well by fibroblasts or endothelial cells. IL-6 is one of the most important mediators of fever and of the acute phase response. IL-6 induces the terminal maturation of activated B cells into plasma cells, and in combination with other factors like IL-2 and IFN-γ it also affects cytotoxic T lymphocytes.

Applications

MACS GMP Recombinant Human IL-6 can be used for a variety of applications, including the
ex vivo
generation of human dendritic cells from enriched CD14
+
monocytes.
2–4

Biological activity

  • The specific activity is determined by proliferation assay according to Gaines-Das and Poole
    1
    using B9 hybridoma cells provided by the German Resource Centre for Biological Material (DSMZ). The proliferation assay was calibrated with the international standard for human IL-6 (NIBSC code 89/548) provided by the National Institute for Biological Standards and Control.
  • Specific activity: ≥ 8×
