Description

Description: The eBio17CK15A5 antibody reacts with mouse and rat IL-17A. Interleukin-17A (IL-17A) is a CD4+ T cell-derived cytokine that promotes inflammatory responses in cell lines and is elevated in rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, and transplant rejection. The cDNA encoding human IL-17A was isolated from a library of CD4+ T cells; the encoded protein exhibits 72 percent amino acid identity with HVS13 , an open reading frame from a T lymphotropic Herpesvirus saimiri, and 63 percent with mouse CTLA-8 (cytotoxic T-lymphocyte associated antigen-8). Human IL-17A exists as glycosylated 20-30 kD homodimers. High levels of IL-17A homodimer are produced by activated peripheral blood CD4+ T-cells. IL-17A enhances expression of the intracellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) in human fibroblasts. Human IL-17A also stimulates epithelial, endothelial, or fibroblastic cells to secrete IL-6, IL-8, G-CSF, and PGE2. In the presence of human IL-17A, fibroblasts can sustain the proliferation of CD34+ hematopoietic progenitors and induce maturation into neutrophils. Mouse, rat, and human IL-17A can induce IL-6 secretion in mouse stromal cells, indicating that all homologs can recognize the mouse IL-17A receptor. IL-23-dependent, IL-17A-producing CD4+ T cells (Th-17 cells) have been identified as a unique subset of Th cells that develops along a pathway that is distinct from the Th1- and Th2- cell differentiation pathways.

The hallmark effector molecules of Th1 and Th2 cells, e.g., IFN-gamma and IL-4, have each been found to negatively regulate the generation of these Th-17 cells. Applications Reported: The eBio17CK15A5 has been reported useful for mouse IL-17A ELISA and ELISPOT capture. Applications Tested: The Affinity Purified eBio17CK15A5 antibody has been tested as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA for measurement of mouse IL-17A protein levels, in combination with the biotinylated eBio17B7 antibody (13-7177) for detection and Recombinant mouse IL-17A (14-8171) as the standard. A suitable range of concentrations of this antibody for ELISA capture is 1.0 - 4.0 μg/mL. A standard curve consisting of doubling dilutions of the Recombinant standard over the range of 1000 pg/mL - 8 pg/mL should be included in each ELISA plate. . Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE. Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC. Filtration: 0.2 μm post-manufacturing filtered. Interleukin-17A (IL-17A, CTLA-8) is a CD4+ T cell-derived cytokine that promotes inflammatory responses in cell lines and is elevated in rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, and transplant rejection. IL-17A is a 32 kDa long, disulfide-linked homodimer consisting of 136 amino acids that is a member of a six-species family of proteins (IL-17A-17F) and signals through the IL-17 receptor (IL-17R/CDw217). High levels of IL-17A homodimer are produced by activated peripheral blood CD4+ T-cells, and IL-17A also enhances expression of the intracellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) in human fibroblasts. In particular, human IL-17A also stimulates epithelial, endothelial, or fibroblastic cells to secrete IL-6, IL-8, G-CSF, and PGE2. In the presence of human IL-17A, fibroblasts can sustain the proliferation of CD34+ hematopoietic progenitors and induce maturation into neutrophils. Mouse, rat, and human IL-17A can induce IL-6 secretion in mouse stromal cells, indicating that all homologs can recognize the mouse receptor. IL-17A regulates the activities of NF-kappa B and mitogen-activated protein kinases, stimulates the expression of IL-6 and cyclooxygenase-2 (PTGS2/COX-2), and enhances the production of nitric oxide (NO).
