Source / Purification

Recombinant human IL-1β (hIL-1β) Ala117-Ser269 (Accession #NM_000576) was produced in E. coli at Cell Signaling Technology.

Product Description

Purity:

>98% as determined by SDS-PAGE of 6 μg reduced (+) and non-reduced (-) recombinant hIL-1β. All lots are greater than 98% pure.


Molecular Formula:

Recombinant hIL-1β does not have a Met on the amino terminus and has a calculated MW of 17,377. DTT-reduced and non-reduced protein migrate as 18 kDa polypeptides. The expected amino-terminal APVRS of recombinant hIL-1β was verified by amino acid sequencing.


Bioactivity:

The bioactivity of recombinant IL-1β was determined by its ability to induce IL-8 production by primary human fibroblasts. The ED50 of each lot is between 5-20 pg/ml.


Endotoxin:

Less than 0.01 ng endotoxin/1 μg hIL-1β.


Product Usage Information

Formulation:

With carrier: Lyophilized from a 0.22 μm filtered solution of PBS, pH 7.2 containing 20 μg BSA per 1 μg hIL-1β. Carrier free: Lyophilized from a 0.22 μm filtered solution of PBS, pH 7.2.


Storage: Stable in lyophilized state at 4°C for 1 year after receipt. Sterile stock solutions reconstituted with carrier protein are stable at 4°C for 2 months and at -20°C for 6 months. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.Maintain sterility. Storage at -20°C should be in a manual defrost freezer.

IL-1β is a pro-inflammatory cytokine produced predominantly by activated monocytes and epithelial cells (1). Precursor IL-1β is cleaved by caspase-1 and mature IL-1β is then secreted (1-3). Target cells include macrophages and many other cell types. Signaling by IL-1β involves IL-1β binding to IL-1 accessory protein (IL-1-AcP) and then the complex binds to IL-1RI (1,2). Signaling is through activation of MAP kinase and NF-κB pathways (1,2). IL-1β also binds to IL-1RII that lacks an intracellular signaling domain and thereby serves as a high affinity decoy receptor. IL-1β binding to IL-1RI is inhibited by the negative regulator, IL-1R antagonist (IL-1Ra). IL-1Ra binding to IL-1RI does not signal and serves to block IL-1β signaling. IL-1β plays critical roles in the acute phase response and sepsis (1-3).
