|Storage condition :||Functional grade biosimilar antibodies may be stored sterile as received at 2-8°C for up to one month. For longer term storage, aseptically aliquot in working volumes without diluting and store at -80°C. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles.|
|Alternative Name :||Interleukin-6, CDF; HGF; HSF; BSF2; BSF-2; IFNB2; IFN-beta-2|
Expression Host : HEK-293
Pathogen Testing : To protect mouse colonies from infection by pathogens and to assure that experimental preclinical data is not affected by such pathogens, all of this recombinant biosimilar antibodies are tested and guaranteed to be negative for all pathogens in the IDEXX IMPACT I Mouse Profile.
This non-therapeutic antibody uses the same variable region sequence as the therapeutic antibody Sarilumab. Sarilumab binds to the transmembrane and soluble forms of the IL-6 receptor. This product is for research use only.
IL-6 and its signaling pathway play a part in immune response regulation, inflammation, and hematopoiesis.2 Sarilumab is a research-grade recombinant human monoclonal IL-6 receptor antagonist. It specifically binds to both the transmembrane and soluble forms of the IL-6 receptor, thus inhibiting IL-6mediated cis and trans-signaling in a dose-dependent manner.1 Therapeutic Sarilumab, also known by the trade name Kevzara, is currently used to treat Rheumatoid Arthritis1, however, as of March 2020, The Feinstein Institute of Northwell Health publicized a study on "a human antibody that may prevent the activity" of IL-6 for the treatment of COVID-19.3 Anti-Human IL-6 (Sarilumab) utilizes the same variable regions from the therapeutic antibody Sarilumab making it ideal for research projects.
Endotoxin : <= 1.0 EU/mg as determined by the LAL method
