Analysis Note

The biological activity of mouse IL-17 is measured by its ability to induce IL-6 production using NIH/3T3 cells.

Physical form

Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in 30% acetonitrile and 0.1% trifluoroacetic acid containing 1.25 mg of bovine serum albumin.

Biochem/physiol Actions

IL-17 (interleukin-17) participates in the activation of nuclear factor-κB and mitogen-activated protein kinase pathways and CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein family of transcription factors, thereby regulating pro-inflammatory and antimicrobial genes. In rheumatoid arthritis, IL-17 is responsible for the inflammation as well as destruction of joints.

Interleukin 17 (IL-17), initially known as CTLA-8, is a T cell-expressed polypeptide that appears to be involved in the regulation of the hematopoietic system. IL-17 has been shown to induce IL-6, IL-8, and G-CSF production by fibroblasts; all of these cytokines have demonstrated effects on hematopoiesis.
