IL-6 Rat anti-Human, PE-CF594, Clone: MQ2-13A5, BD
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 563543
The MQ2-13A5 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to human interleukin-6 (IL-6). IL-6 is a multifunctional cytokine that plays a central role in host defense mechanisms, including hematopoiesis, immune responses (eg, T and B cell activation and differentiation) and acute phase reactions. IL-6 can be expressed by a variety of cells including monocytes/macrophages, eosinophils, fibroblasts, vascular endothelial cells, bone marrow stromal cells, mesangial cells, hepatocytes, keratinocytes, astrocytes, T lymphocytes, B lymphocytes, and various tumor cells. IL-6 production is upregulated by cells in response to bacterial products such as lipopolysaccharide, viruses and other pro-inflammatory cytokines such as IL-1, TNF , and IFN-γ. IL-6 transcription is downregulated by cells in response to IL-4 and IL-10. The functional IL-6 Receptor (IL-6R) complex consists of two transmembrane glycoproteins, an 80-kDa low-affinity ligand-binding receptor subunit (IL-6Rα/CD126) and a 130 kDa (gp130/CD130) subunit that binds to IL-6-IL-6Rα to form the high-affinity signal transducing complex. Abnormal expression of IL-6 is related to the pathogenesis of many diseases including neoplastic (eg, multiple myeloma) and autoimmune diseases (eg, rheumatoid arthritis). The immunogen used to generate this hybridoma was COS-7 -expressed recombinant human IL-6.
