Interleukin-8 (IL-8) is encoded by the IL8 gene and produced by macrophages and other cell types such as epithelial cells. It is also synthesized by endothelial cells, which store IL-8 in their storage vesicles. There are many receptors capable to bind IL-8, the most affinity to IL-8 are receptors CXCR1, and CXCR2. As a member of the CXC chemokine family, function of IL-8 is the induction of chemotaxis in its target cells, like neutrophil granulocytes, basophils, and T-cells. Rhesus macaque IL-8 has approximately 94 % amino acid sequence identity with human IL-8.
Approximately 9.14kD containing 79 amino acid residues.
Fully biologically active when compared to standard. The biological activity determined by a chemotaxis bioassay using human CXCR2 transfected murine BaF3 cells is in a concentration range of 0.5-5.0 ng/ml.
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 rRhIL-8/CXCL8 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 sterile distilled water or aqueous buffer containing 0.1 % BSA to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/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.
> 95 % by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses.
