Human Interleukin-17F (IL-17F) is encoded by the IL17F gene located on the chromosome 6 and belongs to the IL-17 family which contains IL-17A, IL-17B, IL-17C, IL-17D, IL-17E and IL-17F. IL-17F that shares 50 % homologous of crystal structure to IL-17A and is expressed by activated T cells, has the functions of stimulating production of other cytokines (such as IL-6, IL-8 and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor) and proliferation of PBMC and T-cell, regulating cartilage matrix turnover, and inhibiting angiogenesis.
Approximately 30.1 kDa, a disulfide-linked homodimer of two 134 amino acid polypeptide chains.
Fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by inducing IL-6 secretion of murine NIH/3T3 cells is less than 20 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 5.0 × 104 IU/mg.
Sterile filtered white lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Lyophilized from a 0.2 um filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4.
Less than 1 EU/ug of rHuIL-17F as determined by LAL method.
We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute in 6 mM HCl to a concentration of 0.1mg/ml. Stock solutions should be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at ≤ -20 °C. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.
Stability and Storage
Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.- 12 months from date of receipt, -20 to -70 °C as supplied.- 1 month, 2 to 8 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.- 3 months, -20 to -70 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.
