Technical Data
IL17A (Interleukin-17A, IL-17, IL-17A, Cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated Antigen 8, CTLA-8, CTLA8, IL17)
IL-17 was identified from a CD4+ T cells DNA library. IL-17 can be induced from primary peripheral blood CD4+ T cells upon stimulation. The cytokine exhibits a high degree of aa identity with HVS13, an open reading frame from a T lymphotropic Herpes virus saimiri and with murine CTLA8. Supernatant from cells transfected with IL-17 induced IL-16 and IL-18 production and enhanced the surface expression of the intracellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) in human fibroblasts. IL-17 is a disulfide-linked homodimer of two 31kD subunits, each containing 136aa residues.

Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
