Data Examples

Immunohistochemistry IL-17F antibody in Human Tonsil by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P). View Larger

IL‑17F in Human Tonsil. IL-17F was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human tonsil using Goat Anti-Human/Primate IL-17F Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1335) at 3 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Goat IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC004). Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to extracellular space and plasma membrane.

IL-17F in Human Tonsil Using Dual RNAscope®ISH and IHC. IL-17F mRNA was detected in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections of human tonsil probed with ACD RNAScope® Probe (Catalog # 310941) and stained using ACD RNAscope® 2.5 HD Detection Reagents-Red (top image, Catalog # 32260). Adjacent tissue section was processed for immunohistochemistry using R&D Systems Goat Anti-Human IL-17F Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1335) at 3 ug/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Goat IgG VisUCyte HRP Polymer Antibody (R&D Systems, Catalog # VC004) and DAB chromogen (lower image, yellow-brown). Tissues were counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Background: IL-17F

The Interleukin 17 (IL-17) family proteins, comprising six members (IL-17A through IL-17F), are secreted, structurally related proteins that share a conserved cystine-knot fold near the C-terminus, but have considerable sequence divergence at the N-terminus. With the exception of IL-17B, which exists as a non-covalently linked dimer, all IL-17 family members are disulfide-linked dimers. IL-17 family proteins are pro-inflammatory cytokines that induce local cytokine production and are involved in the regulation of immune functions (1, 2).

Human IL-17F cDNA encodes a 163 aa protein with a putative 30 aa signal peptide. Among IL-17 family members, IL-17F is most closely related to IL-17A (approximately 44% aa sequence homology), but shares only limited sequence homology (16 - 30%) with IL-17B, C, D and E. Human and mouse IL-17F share 55% sequence identity. IL-17F is expressed in activated CD4+ T-cells and activated monocytes. Five receptors (IL-17 RA, B, C, D and E) have been identified (5). Although the ligands for IL-17 RD and E are not known yet, it is reported that IL-17 RA binds IL-17A, and IL-17 RB binds IL-17B and IL-17E. IL-17 RC binds IL-17A and IL-17F with similarly high affinity and functions as a receptor for both IL-17A and IL-17F (5, 6). The biological activities mediated by IL-17F are similar to those of IL‑17. IL‑17F stimulates production of IL-6, IL-8, G-CSF, and regulates cartilage matrix turnover by increasing matrix release and inhibiting new matrix synthesis (4). IL‑17F also inhibits angiogenesis and induces production of IL-2, TGF-beta, and monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 in endothelial cells (3).
