Purified Recombinant Human IL-8 (>98%)
<0.1 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method
This antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody has been 0.2 µm filtered and lyophilized from modified Dulbecco’s phosphate buffered saline (1X PBS) pH 7.2 – 7.3 containing 5.0% w/v trehalose with no calcium, magnesium, or preservatives present.
Storage and Handling
The lyophilized antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody can be stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C for twelve months from date of receipt. The reconstituted antibody can be stored for at least four weeks at 2-8°C. For long-term storage of the reconstituted antibody, aseptically aliquot into working volumes and store at -20°C to -70°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles. No detectable loss of activity was observed after six months.

Applications and Recommended Usage?
Quality Tested by Leinco
Western Blot: Suitable for use at concentration of 0.1 µg/mL.
Other Applications Reported In Literature ?
Neutralization: Measured by its ability to neutralize Flt‑3 Ligand/FLT3L-induced proliferation in BaFlt3 mouse pro‑B cell line transfected with mouse Flt‑3. Hannum, C. et al. (1994) Nature 368:643. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.02‑0.06 µg/mL in the presence of 5 ng/mL Recombinant Human Flt‑3 Ligand/FLT3L.
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
Rabbit Anti-Human Interleukin-8 (IL-8) recognizes Human IL-8. This antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody was purified using a proprietary chromatographic technique that includes covalently immobilizing the antigen proteins or peptides to agarose based beads. This purification method enhances specificity, reduces nonspecific binding of extraneous IgG and provides you with the most reliable reagent available for your early discovery research.
Interleukin-8 (IL-8) is a chemokine produced by macrophages and other cell types such as epithelial cells. It is also synthesized by endothelial cells, which store IL-8 in their storage vesicles. IL-8 is one of the major mediators of the inflammatory response. This chemokine is secreted by several cell types. It functions as a chemoattractant, and is also a potent angiogenic factor. Gene of IL-8 is believed to play a role in the pathogenesis of bronchiolitis. While neutrophil granulocytes are the primary target cells of IL-8 there is a relative wide range of cells (endothelial cells, macrophages, mast cells, keratinocytes) responding to this chemokine, too. When first encountering an antigen, the primary cells to encounter it are the macrophages that phagocytose the particle. Upon processing, they release chemokines to signal other immune cells to come in to the site of inflammation. IL-8 is one such chemokine. It serves as a chemical signal that attracts neutrophils at the site of inflammation, and therefore is also known as Neutrophil Chemotactic Factor. Interleukin-8 is often associated with inflammation. As an example, it has been cited as a proinflammatory mediator in psoriasis.1
