This Antibody was verified by Cell treatment to ensure that the antibody binds to the antigen stated.
Description: The MQ2-39C3 antibody reacts with human interleukin-6 (IL-6), a 21-28 kDa cytokine secreted by a variety of cell types.
Applications Reported: MQ2-39C3 has been reported for use in detection of human IL-6 by ELISA and immunoblotting (WB).
Applications Tested: The MQ2-39C3 antibody has been tested as the detection antibody in a sandwich ELISA for analysis of human Interleukin-6 (IL-6) in combination with the purified MQ2-13A5 (14-7069) antibody for capture and recombinant human IL-6 (14-8069) as the standard. A suitable range of concentrations of this antibody for ELISA detection is 0.5-2 µg/mL. A standard curve consisting of doubling dilutions of the recombinant standard over the range of 1000 pg/mL - 8 pg/mL should be included in each ELISA plate.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
IL-6 is a gene that encodes a cytokine that plays a role in inflammation and the maturation of B cells. The protein produced by this gene is an endogenous pyrogen that can induce fever in people with autoimmune diseases or infections. The gene is primarily expressed at sites of acute and chronic inflammation, where it is secreted into the serum and induces a transcriptional inflammatory response through interleukin 6 receptor, alpha. The functioning of this gene is implicated in a wide variety of inflammation-associated disease states, including suspectibility to diabetes mellitus and systemic juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Elevated levels of the encoded protein have been found in virus infections, including COVID-19 (disease caused by SARS-CoV-2). Diseases associated with IL6 include Kaposi Sarcoma and Rheumatoid Arthritis, Systemic Juvenile.
