Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified E B
Interleukin 1 alpha (IL-1 alpha) is synthesized as a 33kD precursor that mainly remains intracellular. Cleavage by calpain in keratinocytes, epithelial cells and endotoxin-stimulated peripheral blood mononuclear cells produces a 112aa, 16kD propeptide and a 159aa, 17kD mature protein. A nuclear localization site in the propeptide allows transit to the nucleus, where either the precursor or the propeptide can activate transcription or alter RNA splicing. This can increase motility or senescence of normal cells or increase apoptosis of tumor cells. Human and mouse IL-1 alpha propeptide share 71% aa identity.
Catalog #I7663-01E
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Western Blot and ELISA. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionWestern Blot: 1-2ug/ml. The detection limit for recombinant human IL-1a propeptide is ~5ng/lane under non-reducing and reducing conditions.
Direct ELISA: 0.5-1ug/ml. The detection limit for recombinant human IL-1a propeptide is ~2ng/well.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
