Tech Info / Data

11605 Purity Confirmation on SDS-PAGE

Recombinant human interleukin 6 (IL-6) is expressed by T-cells, endothelial cells, fibroblasts and other cell types. IL-6 expression can also be stimulated by a number of different factors including T cell mitogens, LPS, viruses and IL-1. IL-6 is a pleiotropic cytokine that regulates the development, proliferation and maturation of a number of hematopoietic cells and is essential for the maturation of B cells. It can also influence the growth and function of nerve cells, metabolism of bone and induction of acute phase proteins in hepatocytes.
