IL-12/IL-23 p40, Functional Grade, clone: C17.8, eBioscience™
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Life Technologies LS16712385
IL-23 is a member of the IL-12 cytokine family which is produced by dendritic cells and other antigen presenting cells in the peripheral tissues. This cytokine is a heterodimer composed of an IL-12p40 subunit, and a p19 subunit. IL-23 plays an important role in stimulating memory T-cells. It is also required for the induction, expansion, maintenance, and downstream effector functions of Th17 cells. Th17 cells play a vital role in upregulating neutrophil chemokines and various pro-inflammatory cytokines. IL-23 interacts with the receptors IL-12R beta1 and IL-23R to activate the Jak-Stat signaling cascade.Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE. Endotoxin Level: Less than 0.001 ng/μg antibody, as determined by LAL assay. Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC. IL-12 is an interleukin produced by dendritic cells, neutrophils, macrophages and human lymphoblastoid cells as a result of antigenic stimulation. IL-12 is a heterodimeric cytokine encoded by IL-12A (p35) and IL-12B (p40). IL-23 is a heterodimeric cytokine that shares a subunit with IL-12 (IL-12B) along with an IL-23A (IL-23p19) subunit. Functionally, IL-12 increases the expression of vascular endothelial adhesion molecule-1 on the endothelium, directs leukocytes towards tumors and facilitates the ischemic-hemorrhagic necrosis of the tumor tissue. In comparison, IL-23 plays an important role in stimulating memory T-cells, and is required for the induction, expansion, maintece and downstream effector functions of Th17 cells, which play a vital role in upregulating neutrophil chemokines and various pro-inflammatory cytokines.
