General description

Interleukin-6 (IL6) is a multifunctional cytokine. The gene is located on the human chromosome at 7p15.3. IL6 is found in many supplemental cloning media.


recombinant IL6


Anti-IL6 antibody produced in rabbit may be used in immunoblotting and immunoprecipitation.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Interleukin-6 (IL6) plays a wide variety of biological roles in the immune , nervous and endocrine systems. It is involved as a primary regulator of acute and chronic inflammatory diseases. IL6 is a target for clinical treatment against autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis and Castleman′s disease. It also plays a key role in the pathogenesis of myeloma. IL6 levels are higher in patients with different kinds of malignant disease. Elevated circulating levels of IL6 is considered as a biomarker for acute coronary syndrome (ACS), cardiovascular diseases, such as heart attack and stroke and unstable angina. It is an essential component of hybridoma growth.
