CTGrade rh IL-6 is a recombinant human protein that is produced from E. coli and is designed to support basic, translational, and clinical research, as well as commercial applications, and offers:
- High biological activity verified by a relevant bioactivity assay
- Low endotoxin levels
- ≥ 97% purity
- High lot-to-lot consistency
Size: 50 µg, 100 µg, and 1 mg. Custom sizes and packaging available on request.
IL-6 is an important pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokine expressed by T cells, macrophages, and muscle cells.
- Signals through a receptor complex containing two receptors, IL-6Rα and gp130
- Plays an important function in promoting fever and can serve to stimulate an immune response to trauma. IL-6 is often used for growth of hybridoma cell lines
The biological activity of CTGrade interleukins and growth factors is standardized, where applicable, to WHO International standards, providing cell and gene therapy developers consistent, lot-to-lot biological activity and performance.
The CTGrade products are manufactured in a facility that does not use or process beta- lactam containing materials. No animal- or human-derived materials were used during manufacturing or as ingredients. These products are manufactured, tested, and released in an ISO 9001:2015 certified facility following cGMP practices. USP chapter <1043> for ancillary materials has been considered in the manufacture of these products.
*For research use or further manufacturing and in ex vivo cell therapy applications.
**Animal component-free to the tertiary level (no animal-origin components or sub-components are used in the product, raw materials, including packaging or the manufacturing process). Supporting documentation available upon request.
***Lot-specific values for the following specifications are supplied with each product on its corresponding COA. The values provided here are minimum expected values to pass internal requirements.
