Activity: The biological activity was determined by bovine neutrophil chemotactic response to bovine IL-8. The ED50 (or 1 unit of activity) for this effect in our laboratories is typically < 15.7% total responding cells at the concentration of Bovine IL-8 at 50 ng/mL.
Expression: The mature form of bovine IL-8 was expressed in Pichia pastoris, X-33. GenBank® Accession # P79255, amino acids 23-101. For protein verification, the expressed protein was N-terminal sequenced and begins with the following 10 amino acids: MSTELRCQCI.
Reconstitute with 0.5 ml of distilled water.
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the CXC chemokine family. This chemokine is one of the major mediators of the inflammatory response. This chemokine is secreted by several cell types. It functions as a chemoattractant, and is also a potent angiogenic factor. This gene is believed to play a role in the pathogenesis of bronchiolitis, a common respiratory tract disease caused by viral infection. This gene and other ten members of the CXC chemokine gene family form a chemokine gene cluster in a region mapped to chromosome 4q.
