Technical Data
Interleukin 17AF Heterodimer, Recombinant, Mouse (IL-17AF Heterodimer)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Interleukin-17AF (IL-17AF) is a member of the IL-17 family of proteins produced by a subset of T cells, called Th17, following stimulation with IL-23. Since IL-17AF is thought to signal through the IL-17R receptor, its biological function is similar to that of IL- 17A in that it induces the production of a variety of chemokines, in addition to airway neutrophilia. In regard to these functions, IL- 17AF has less activity than the IL-17A homodimer but, greater activity than the IL-17F homodimer. Human and rat IL-17AF both show activity on mouse cells.

Recombinant protein corresponding to 271aa rat IL-17AF expressed in E.coli.

Molecular Weight:

1EU/ug (LAL)

Biological Activity:
The activity is determined by the dose-dependent induction of IL-6 production in cultured mouse NIH 3T3 fibroblasts, is typically 75- 325ng/ml.
