Measured by its ability to neutralize IL‑1ra/IL‑1F3 inhibition of IL‑1 alpha /IL‑1F1-dependent proliferation in the D10.G4.1 mouse helper T cell line. Symons, J. A. et al. (1987) in Lymphokines and Interferons, a Practical Approach. Clemens, M. J. et al. (eds): IRL Press. 272. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 3-15 µg/mL in the presence of 0.48 µg/mL Recombinant Porcine IL‑1ra/IL‑1F3, 75 pg/mL Recombinant Porcine IL‑1 alpha /IL‑1F1 and 1.25 µg/mL concanavalin A.
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.
IL‑1ra/IL‑1F3 Inhibition of IL‑1 alpha /IL‑1F1-dependent Cell Proliferation and Neutralization by Porcine IL‑1ra/ IL‑1F3 Antibody.
Recombinant Porcine IL‑1ra/ IL‑1F3 (Catalog # 780‑RA) inhibits Recombinant Porcine IL‑1 alpha /IL‑1F1 (Catalog # 680-PI) induced proliferation in the D10.G4.1 mouse helper T cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Inhibition of Recombinant Porcine IL‑1 alpha / IL‑1F1 (75 pg/mL) activity elicited by Recombinant Porcine IL‑1ra/ IL‑1F3 (0.48 µg/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Porcine IL‑1ra/IL‑1F3 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF780). The ND50 is typically 3‑15 µg/mL in the presence of concanavalin A (1.25 µg/mL).
IL‑1ra/IL‑1F3 in Porcine PBMCs. IL‑1ra/IL‑1F3 was detected in immersion fixed porcine peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) using Goat Anti-Porcine IL‑1ra/ IL‑1F3 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF780) at 15 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to plasma membrane and cytoplasm. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Non-adherent Cells.

IL-1ra was originally isolated from the urine of patients with monocytic leukemia and has also been purified from adherent monocytes. The naturally-occurring, fully glycosylated form has an apparent molecular weight of about 25,000 Daltons. The protein shows 26% amino acid homology to IL-1 beta and 19% homology to IL-1 alpha. It will compete with either factor for receptor binding, but does not interact with either one. Human IL-1ra will bind to both types of IL-1 receptors (I and II) on human cells, but reportedly will not block binding to the type II receptor on murine pre-B cell lines. IL-1ra has been shown to block the inflammatory responses induced by IL-1 both in vitro and in vivo. Human, mouse and rat IL-1ra all share approximately 80% homology with porcine IL-1ra.
