Rat Interleukin-6 (IL-6)
Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is an important pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokine expressed by T-cells, macrophages and muscle cells. IL-6 signals through a receptor complex containing two receptors, IL-6Rα and gp130. IL-6 has an important function in promoting fever and can serve to stimulate an immune response to trauma. IL-6 is often used for growth of hybridoma cell lines. Human IL-6 is active on mouse and rat cells. Recombinant rat IL-6 is a non-gylcosylated protein, containing 187 amino acids and has a predicted molecular weight of 21.7 kDa.
