Mouse IL-36 alpha /IL-1F6 Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects mouse IL‑36 alpha /IL‑1F6 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs and Western blots, approximately 5% cross‑reactivity with recombinant human (rh) IL-1F5, rhIL-1F6, and rhIL-1F9 is observed, and less than 2% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse IL‑1F8, rhIL-1F7, rhIL-1 alpha, rhIL-1 beta, rhIL-1ra, and rhIL-18 is observed.
Polyclonal Goat IgG
Antigen Affinity-purified
E. coli-derived recombinant mouse IL‑36 alpha /IL‑1F6
Accession # Q9JLA2
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied either lyophilized or as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.


Recommended Concentration
Western Blot
0.1 µg/mL
Recombinant Mouse IL‑36 alpha /IL‑1F6 (Catalog # 2297-ML)
Blockade of Receptor-ligand Interaction
In a functional ELISA, 0.6-2.4 µg/mL of this antibody will block 50% of the binding of 5 μg/mL of Recombinant Mouse IL-1 Rrp2/IL-1 R6 Fc Chimera (Catalog # 2354-RP) to immobilized Recombinant Mouse IL‑36 alpha /IL‑1F6 (Catalog # 2297-ML) coated at 1 µg/mL (100 µL/well). At 40 μg/mL, this antibody will block >90% of the binding.

Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.

Background: IL-36 alpha/IL-1F6

Mouse interleukin-36 alpha [IL-36 alpha ; also named interleukin 1 family member 6, IL-1F6 and FIL-1 epsilon (epsilon)] is a member of the IL-1 family of proteins (1‑3). IL-1 family members include IL-1 beta, IL‑1 alpha, IL-1ra, IL-18 and IL-1F5 through F10 (4). All family members show a 12 beta -strand, beta -trefoil configuration, and all family members are believed to have arisen from a common ancestral gene that has undergone multiple duplications (4). IL-1F6 is synthesized as a 160 amino acid (aa) protein that contains no signal sequence, no prosegment and no potential N-linked glycosylation site(s) (2, 5). It appears to be actively secreted (1). When found in cell lysates, it presents as an 18 kDa monomer (2). Mouse to human, full length IL-1F6 has 54% aa identity. Within the family, IL-1F6 is 29% aa identical to IL-1ra, and 32%, 32%, 34%, 41%, and 28% aa identical to IL-1 beta, IL-1F5, F8, F9, and F10, respectively. Cells reported to express IL-1F6 include monocytes, B cells and T cells (1, 4). Notably, IL-1F6 is the only novel IL-1 family member found to be expressed on T-cells. The receptor for IL-1F6 is reported to be a combination of IL-1 Rrp2 and IL-1 RAcP (6). Recombinant IL‑1F6, along with IL-1F8 and IL-1F9, has been shown to act as an agonist by activating the pathway involving NF-kappa B and MAPK in an IL-1 Rrp2 dependent manner. This suggests that IL‑1F6 may signal in similar fashion to IL-1 and IL-18 in having a binding receptor which upon ligation, recruits a second receptor as a signaling component, forming an active heterodimeric receptor complex.
