Interleukin-8 (IL-8) belongs to the neutrophil-specific CXC family of chemokines. It is one of the initial cytokines released from a variety of cell types, including T cells, endothelial cells and fibroblasts, in response to an inflammatory stimulus and acts by recruiting neutrophils, T-cells and basophils to the site of inflammation. Elevated Interleukin-8 levels are associated with the onset of a variety of disease states.

Recombinant corresponding to aa23-99 from mature human IL-8, fused to 6x His-tag at N-terminal, expressed in E. coli.

Suitable for use in Western Blot as a control. Other applications not tested.
