Measured by its ability to induce IL-8 production of human PBMCs.
SDS-PAGE Activity assay The optimal working dilution should be determined by the end user.
Lyophilized from 10mM Sodium Phosphate, pH 7.0.
Store at -20°C. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Do not vortex. For extended storage, it is recommended to be further diluted in buffer containing carrier protein (e.g. 0.1% BSA) and stored in aliquots at -20°C to -80°C.
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the interleukin 1 cytokine family. Protein structure modeling indicated that this cytokine may contain a 12-stranded beta-trefoil structure that is conserved between IL1A (IL-A alpha) and IL1B (IL-1 beta). This gene and eight other interleukin 1 family genes form a cytokine gene cluster on chromosome 2. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been reported.
