Activity

Measured by its ability to inhibit IL-1 alpha-dependent proliferation in D10.G4.1 mouse helper T cells. Symons, J.A. et al. (1987) in Lymphokines and Interferons, a Practical Approach. Clemens, M.J. et al. (eds): IRL Press. 272.
The ED50 for this effect is 0.02-0.06 µg/mL in the presence of 50 pg/mL of recombinant porcine IL-1 alpha.

Formulation, Preparation and Storage

Carrier Free
What does CF mean?

CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our recombinant proteins. Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration. The carrier free version does not contain BSA.

What formulation is right for me?

In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or as an ELISA standard. In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA could interfere.

Carrier: 780-RA

Background: IL-1ra/IL-1F3

IL-1ra was originally isolated from the urine of patients with monocytic leukemia and has also been purified from adherent monocytes. The naturally-occurring, fully glycosylated form has an apparent molecular weight of about 25,000 Daltons. The protein shows 26% amino acid homology to IL-1 beta and 19% homology to IL-1 alpha. It will compete with either factor for receptor binding, but does not interact with either one. Human IL-1ra will bind to both types of IL-1 receptors (I and II) on human cells, but reportedly will not block binding to the type II receptor on murine pre-B cell lines. The recombinant, non-glycosylated form of IL-ra blocks binding of IL-1 to its receptor equally as well as the naturally-occurring, glycosylated form. The IL-1ra has been shown to block the inflammatory responses induced by IL-1 both in vitro and in vivo. Human, mouse and rat IL-1ra all share approximately 80% homology with porcine IL-1ra.
