Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of 20mM TrisHCl, 150mM NaCl, pH 7.5.
Lyophilized protein should be stored at <-20°C, though stable at room temperature for 3 weeks.Reconstituted protein solution can be stored at 4-7°C for 2-7 days.Aliquots of reconstituted samples are stable at <-20°C for 3 months.
Always centrifuge tubes before opening. Do not mix by vortex or pipetting.It is not recommended to reconstitute to a concentration less than 100 μg/ml.Dissolve the lyophilized protein in ddH2O.Please aliquot the reconstituted solution to minimize freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95% as determined by reducing SDS-PAGE.
Less than 0.1 ng/µg (1 IEU/µg) as determined by LAL test.
Interleukin-1 alpha (IL1α) is a cytokine member of the interleukin-1 family. IL-1 consists of two distinct forms: IL1α and IL1β that recognize the same cell surface receptors but are distinct proteins with approximately 25% amino acid sequence identity. IL1α is constitutively produced by epithelial cells and plays an essential role in maintenance of skin barrier function. Upon stimulation, a wide variety of cells including osteoblasts, monocytes, macrophages can be induced to express IL1α. IL1α possesses a wide range of metabolic, physiological, haematopoietic activities, and is critically involved in the regulation of the immune responses and inflammatory responses.
