Lyophilized Standard Mix-Human Group 6, Panel B, 12-Plex. PN: HG62013. One vial containing lyophilized recombinant Eotaxin-2, IGFBP-1, IGFBP-7, MCP-4, MDC, MIP-1δ, MIP-3α, MIP-3β, IL-6Rα, IL-1RII, Gp130, and TNFRII. Note: If multiple analyte kits on the above target list are ordered as a panel, only one vial of standard mix is supplied for those analyte kits.

STORAGE:  2-8 C in the dark.

IMPORTANT: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

APPLICATION: Optimal antibody pair and antigen standard for assaying human IL-6Rα/sCD126. Can be multiplexed with other analytes in Human Group 6.  To be used in conjunction with the AimPlex NR Basic Kit (PN: P100001) and a diluent kit. Refer to the AimPlex Multiplex Immunoassay User Manual and kit inserts for the assay procedure.

Description:

Interleukin 6 receptor (IL6R) also known as CD126, IL6-RA or IL-6Ra, is a type I cytokine receptor. Interleukin 6 (IL6) is a potent pleiotropic cytokine that regulates cell growth and differentiation and plays an important role in immune response. Dysregulated production of IL6 and this receptor are implicated in the pathogenesis of many diseases, such as multiple myeloma, autoimmune diseases and prostate cancer.  It has functions in the regulation of the immune system and the nervous system. Furthermore, IL-6 is involved in liver regeneration and in the metabolic control of the body. On target cells, IL-6 binds to an 80 kDa IL-6 receptor (IL-6R). The complex of IL-6 and IL-6R binds with protein, gp130, which dimerizes and initiates intracellular signaling.
