IL6 antibodies are used to study Interleukin 6 activity. IL6 is a dual purpose interleukin which functions as both a pro-inflammatory cytokine and an anti-inflammatory myokine. It has also been shown to be an endogenous pyrogen capable of inducing fever in people with autoimmune infections as well as influencing the maturation of B-cells. IL6 stimulates the inflammatory and auto-immune processes in many diseases such as diabetes, atherosclerosis, prostate cancer, Alzheimer's disease, depression and others. It is responsible for stimulating acute phase protein synthesis as well as the production of neutrophils in the bone marrow while regulating the growth of B cells.
As a myokine IL6 is also released into the bloodstream in large quantities during exercise where it performs similar functions to a hormone such as augmenting substrate delivery. It also exerts an anti-inflammatory influence during times of physical stress.
IL6 is a multipurpose protein, as well as its cytokine and myokine functions additional roles include nerve cells differentiation and interaction with T-cells, hepatocytes, hematopoietic progenitor cells and cells of the central nervous system. It is also an essential factor in hybridoma growth and is added to the growth media of many cell lines and in monoclonal antibody production.
Interleukin 6 is widely studied as a possible therapeutic drug target. Fitzgerald Industries offers a wide range of monoclonal and polyclonal IL6 antibodies for research and diagnostic use. Our high quality IL6 antibodies are the ideal choice for use in immunodiagnostic procedures including ELISA, Immunohistochemistry, Flow Cytometry, Immunocytochemistry and more.
