Recombinant Human IL-18-Binding Protein/IL-18BP (C-Fc)

Cat.No.: CB99

Recombinant Human IL-18BP (C-Fc)
Description
Recombinant Human Interleukin-18-binding protein is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Thr31-Gly194 is expressed with a Fc tag at the C-terminus.
Accession #:O95998
Known as:Interleukin-18-binding protein; Tadekinig-alfa and IL18BP;
Formulation
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of PBS, pH 7.4.
Quality Control
Purity:Greater than 95% as determined by reducing SDS-PAGE.
Endotoxin:Less than 0.1 ng/?g (1 EU/?g) as determined by LAL test.
Reconstitution
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
Storage
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.
Background
Interleukin-18-binding protein, also known as Tadekinig-alfa and IL18BP, contains 1 Ig-like C2-type domain. IL18BP is constitutively expressed and secreted in mononuclear cells. IL18BP functions as an IL18 inhibitor. IL18BP binds to IL18, prevents the binding of IL18 to its receptor, and thus inhibits IL18-induced IFN-gamma production. It has been shown that IL18BP may be a promising molecular approach to inhibit neointimal hyperplasia and arteriosclerosis progression following coronary and peripheral angioplasty.
