Human IL-17A, also known as IL-17, is a proinflammatory cytokine that is encoded by the IL17A gene in chromosome 6. IL-17A is produced as a disulfide-linked homodimer comprised of two mature 136-amino acid polypeptides. It is a member of the IL-17 family of structurally related cytokines, designated IL-17A through IL-17F. Activated memory T cells, especially Th17 cells (specialized IL-17A-producing CD4+ T cells distinct from Th1 and Th2 cells) produce IL-17 and provide protective immunity against pathogens. Activated CD8+ T cells, γδT cells, NK cells and neutrophils can also be activated to produce IL-17A. IL-17A binds to and exerts its biological activity through IL-17 receptors (IL-17R) that are expressed by a variety of target cells including fibroblasts, epithelial and endothelial cells, monocytes/macrophages and mast cells. The ubiquitous IL-17R expression pattern may explain the broad tissue responsiveness to IL-17. IL-17 induces stromal cells to secrete cytokines and chemokines involved in inflammatory and hematopoietic processes. For example, IL-17 induces fibroblasts to produce IL-6, IL-8, G-CSF and express increased surface ICAM-1. The N49-653 antibody reacts with human IL-17A.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon™ Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max at 421-nm, BD Horizon™ BV421can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the standard Pacific Blue™ filter set (eg, 450/50-nm filter). BD Horizon™ BV421conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue™ conjugates.
