Specifications

A soluble factor produced by monocytes, macrophages, and other cells which activates T-lymphocytes and potentiates their response to mitogens or antigens. IL-1 consists of two distinct forms, IL-1 alpha and IL-1 beta which perform the same functions but are distinct proteins. The synthesis of IL-1 can be induced by other cytokines including TNF-alpha , IFN-alpha , IFN-beta and IFN-g and also by bacterial endotoxins , viruses, mitogens, and antigens. In human skin fibroblasts IL1-alpha and TNF-alpha induce the synthesis of IL1-beta . In pheochromocytoma cells, NGF induces the synthesis of IL1.
Catalog #I7663-01A2
DescriptionRecombinant Rat IL-1alpa produced in E.Coli is single, a non-glycosylated, Polypeptide chain containing 155amino acids and having a molecular mass of 17703Dalton. The Recombinant Rat IL-1a is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Amino Acid SequenceThe sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Ala-Pro-His-Ser-Phe.
Dimers and AggregatesLess than 1% as determined by silver-stained SDS-PAGE gel analysis.
Biological ActivityIL-1a is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of murine D10S cells is < 0.005 ng/ml, corresponding to a Specific Activity of 2 x 108 IU/mg.
Endotoxin 0.1ng/ug (IEU/ug) of IL-1alpha.
Protein ContentProtein quantitation was carried out by two independent methods:
1. UV spectroscopy at 280 nm using the absorbency value of 0.751 as the extinction coefficient for a 0.1% (1mg/ml) solution. This value is calculated by the PC GENE computer analysis program of protein sequences (IntelliGenetics).
2. Analysis by RP-HPLC, using a standard solution of IL-1a as a Reference Standard.
GeneName: IL1A; Synonyms: IL1F1
SolubilityIt is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Rat IL-1 alpha in sterile 18M -cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
StabilityLyophilized Rat IL-1a although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -180C. Upon reconstitution Recombinant Rat IL-1 should be stored at 40C between 2-7 days and for future use below -180C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
