Description

IL-6 Protein, Human is a potent inducer of the synthesis of acute phase proteins in adult human hepatocytes.

Background

Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a 26-kD protein released by fibroblasts, T lymphocytes, endothelial cells, monocytes, and keratinocytes during inflammatory responses. IL-6 has pluripotent activities, including the stimulation of the monocytic lineage, the induction of megakaryopoiesis and the hepatic acute phase response, as well as the modulation of T- and B-cell responses. IL-6 is also capable of mediating direct and indirect tumor cell destruction and that it is potentially important for the immunotherapy of cancer[1. Recombinant human interleukin-6 (IL-6/BSF-2/HSF) regulates the synthesis of acute phase proteins in human hepatocytes[2].

Biological Activity
The ED50 is <0.1 ng/mL as measured by murine 7TD1 cells, corresponding to a specific activity of 5 × 107 units/mg.

The reconstitution calculator equation

Volume (to add to vial) = Mass (in vial) ÷ Desired Reconstitution Concentration

Volume (to add to vial) = Mass (in vial) ÷ Desired Reconstitution Concentration
= ÷

The dilution calculator equation

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)

This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)
× = ×
C1   V1   C2   V2

The specific active calculator equation

Specific Active (Unit/mg) = 106 ÷ Biological Activity (ED50)

Specific Active (Unit/mg) = 106 ÷ Biological Activity (ED50)
Unit/mg = 106 ÷ ng/mL
