Description: The SHLR17 monoclonal antibody reacts with human interleukin (IL)-17F. IL-17F is a homodimeric, 34 kDa member of the IL-17 family, which includes IL-17(A), B, C, D, E (IL-25). Within this family, IL-17A and IL-17F are produced preferentially by T helper 17 (Th17) cells, with other members produced more widely. IL-17F and IL-17A have many overlapping functions, but knockout studies have shown each to have independent functions as well. In vitro cultured Th17 cells have been shown to express IL-17F and IL-17A homodimers and IL-17A/F heterodimers depending on the culture conditions and their differentiation state. A heterodimer of IL-17RA and IL-17RC has been shown to bind IL-17F, resulting in target cell-secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines, as well as neutrophil recruitment. Applications Reported: This SHLR17 antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This SHLR17 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis of TH17-polarized normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.5 µg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test.Excitation: 488-561 nm; Emission: 578 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered. IL-17F (Interleukin 17F, CTLA-8)) is a cytokine belonging to the IL-17 family that is produced by inflammatory cells such as activated T cells, mast cells, and basophils. IL-17F is involved in allergic airway inflammation, and can induce several cytokines, chemokines, and adhesion molecules in bronchial epithelial cells, vein endothelial cells, fibroblasts, and eosinophils. IL-17F may be secreted as a homodimer, or a heterodimer with IL17A. It acts by binding to the type I receptor, IL-17R, aiding recruitment of monocytes and neutrophils at the site of inflammation by increasing chemokine production. IL-17F also stimulates induction of other pro-inflammatory cytokines TNF alpha, IL-1 beta, IL-6, and IL-8, and reports strongly suggest the involvement of IL-17 in several chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and multiple sclerosis. TGF-beta (differentiation) and IL-23 (expansion) are required for induction and maintece of Th17 (IL-17 producing) cells, which in turn induce the other pro-inflammatory cytokines. IL-17F is produced, and exists, as a homo-dimer, with homology to a herpes virus early protein, is one of the six members (IL-17A-F) of this cytokine family, and is well characterized and highly expressed by activated effector memory T cells. IL-17F has been found to inhibit the angiogenesis of endothelial cells and induce endothelial cells to produce IL2, TGFB1/TGFB, and monocyte chemoattractant protein-1.
