IL-17A Rat Recombinant Protein Description

Rat IL- 17A (IL-17), also known as CTLA-8, is a proinflammatory cytokine member of a six-species family of proteins (IL-17A-17F). Rat IL-17A protein is a homodimer consisting of two 134 amino acids peptides. IL-17A is secreted mainly by activated CD4+ and CD8+ T lymphocytes and acts through its receptor, IL-17R, to induce the expression of many mediators of inflammation, most strikingly, those that are involved in the proliferation, maturation and chemotaxis of neutrophils. Elevated levels of IL-17A have been associated with several conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, airway inflammation, allograft rejection, inflammatory bowel disease, psoriasis, cancer and multiple sclerosis. There is 58% identity between the amino acid sequence of human and rat IL-17A. Recombinant rat IL-17A produced in E.coli is a non-glycosylated disulfide-joined homodimer having a molecular mass of 30.0 kDa.

Storage Condition
Store vial at 4° C prior to restoration. Dilute only prior to immediate use. Maintain sterility. This product DOES NOT contain preservative. DO NOT VORTEX. We recommend adding a carrier protein such as HSA or BSA to 0.1% (i.e. 1.0 mg/mL) . For best results aliquot contents and freeze at -20° C or colder. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing. Centrifuge vial before each opening to dislodge contents from the cap and to clarify if contents are not clear after standing at room temperature.
Application Note
IL-17A is suitable as a control for polyclonal or monoclonal anti-IL-17A in immunological assays.
Purity was determined to be greater than 97% by reducing and non-reducing SDS- PAGE.
