Product Details
Synonyms Interleukin-8; CXCL8; C-X-C Motif Chemokine 8; Emoctakin; GCP-1; LAI; MDNCF; MONAP; NAP-1; NCF; TCF
Product Type Protein
Source/Host CHO cells

The extracellular domain of human IL-8 (aa 23-99) is fused to the N-terminus of the Fc region of a mutant human IgG1.

Crossreactivity Human
Biological Activity

Shows the biological function of the IL-8 moiety and exerts a prolonged circulating half-life caused by the modified Fc domain.

Purity ≥98% (SDS-PAGE)
Endotoxin Content <0.06EU/μg protein (LAL test; Lonza).
Reconstitution Reconstitute 10µg vial in 100µl sterile water.
Reconstitute 50µg vial in 50µl sterile water.
Add 1X PBS to the desired protein concentration.
Formulation Lyophilized from 0.2μm-filtered solution in PBS.
Protein Negative Control

Fc (human) IgG1 Control (rec.) (non-lytic)

Other Product Data

Non-lytic: Acts as a long lasting fusion protein which only binds to the receptor. Mutations to the complement (C1q) and FcgR I binding sites of the IgGs Fc fragment render the fusion proteins incapable of antibody directed cytotoxicity (ADCC) and complement directed cytotoxicity (CDC).

Interleukin-8 (IL-8) was originally discovered as a neutrophil chemotactic and activating factor and is a member of the α (CXC) subfamily of chemokines (including also platelet factor 4, GRO, IP-10, etc.). Many cell types, including monocyte/macrophages, T cells, neutrophils, fibroblasts, endothelial cells, keratinocytes, hepatocytes, chondrocytes and various tumor cell lines, produce IL-8 in response to a wide variety of proinflammatory stimuli such as exposure to IL-1, TNF, LPS and viruses. IL-8 has a wide range of other proinflammatory effects. It is a potent chemoattractant for neutrophils and causes degranulation of neutrophil specific granules and azurophilic granules. IL-8 induces expression of the cell adhesion molecules CD11/CD18 and enhances the adherence of neutrophils to endothelial cells and subendothelial matrix proteins. Besides neutrophils, IL-8 is also chemotactic for basophils, T cells and eosinophils. IL-8 has been reported to be a co-mitogen for keratinocytes and was also shown to be an autocrine growth factor for melanoma cells. IL-8 was also reported to be angiogenic both in vivo and in vitro.
