Specificity

This antibody is specific for human IL-1 alpha (Interleukin-1 alpha), an 18kDa multi-functional pro-inflammatory cytokine which belongs to the IL-1 family of proteins, and is produced by a variety of cells including activated macrophages, monocytes and keratinocytes.

IL-1 alpha and IL-1 beta have been identified as two distinct IL-1 proteins which bind to the same type 1 Interleukin 1 receptor (IL1R1). Biological properties of IL-1 alpha include stimulation of thymocyte proliferation by induction of IL-2 release, B-cell proliferation and maturation, and fibroblast growth factor activity.

This antibody has been shown to neutralise IL-1 alpha activity in a bioassay.

Storage/Stability

Prior to reconstitution store at +4 °C.
After reconstitution store at -20 °C.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended. This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
If stored in this manner, this product is stable for 12 months after receipt.
