Recombinant Human Interleukin-17F (Human IL-17F)
The Interleukin 17F (IL-17) family proteins, comprising six members (IL-17, IL-17B through IL-17F), are secreted, structurally related proteins that share a conserved cystine-knot fold near the C-terminus, but have considerable sequence divergence at the N-terminus. With the exception of IL-17B, which exists as a noncovalently linked dimer, all IL-17 family members are disulfide-linked dimers. IL-17 family proteins are proinflammatory cytokines that induce local cytokine production and are involved in the regulation of immune functions. Two receptors (IL17 R, and IL-17B R), which are activated by IL-17 family members, have been identified. In addition, at least three additional orphan type I transmembrane receptors with homology to IL-17 R, including IL-17 RL (IL-17 RC), IL-17 RD, and IL17 RE, have also been reported. Human IL-17B cDNA encodes a 180 aa protein with a putative 20 aa signal peptide. Human and mouse IL-17B share 88% amino acid sequence identity. Among IL-17 family members, IL-17B is most closely related to IL-17D, sharing 27% aa sequence homology. IL-17B is expressed highly in spinal cord, and at lower levels in brain, kidney, lung, small intestine, prostate, testes, pancreas, adrenal gland and trachea . Expression of IL-17B has also been detected in chondrocytes in articular cartilage. IL-17B binds the IL-17B receptor but not IL-17 R and exhibits bioactivities distinct from those of IL-17 .

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
> 95% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses.
Fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by inducing IL-6 secretion of murine NIH/3T3 cells is less than 20 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 5.0 × 104 IU/mg.
< 1.0 EU per 1μg of the protein by the LAL method.
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4.
We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute in 6 mM HCl to a concentration of 0.1 mg/ml. Stock solutions should be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at ≤ -20°C. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.
Shipping and Storage
