Porcine IL-6 Antibody Summary
Accession # P26893
This antibody functions as an ELISA detection antibody when paired with Rat Anti-Porcine IL‑6 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6862).
This product is intended for assay development on various assay platforms requiring antibody pairs. We recommend the Porcine IL-6 DuoSet ELISA Kit (Catalog # DY686) for convenient development of a sandwich ELISA or the Porcine IL-6 Quantikine ELISA Kit (Catalog # P6000B) for a complete optimized ELISA.
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.
Porcine IL‑6 ELISA Standard Curve. Recombinant Porcine IL-6 protein was serially diluted 2-fold and captured by Rat Anti-Porcine IL-6 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6862) coated on a Clear Polystyrene Microplate (Catalog # DY990). Rat Anti-Porcine IL-6 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6863) was biotinylated and incubated with the protein captured on the plate. Detection of the standard curve was achieved by incubating Streptavidin-HRP (Catalog # DY998) followed by Substrate Solution (Catalog # DY999) and stopping the enzymatic reaction with Stop Solution (Catalog # DY994).

Interleukin 6 (IL-6) is a pleiotropic alpha -helical cytokine that plays important roles in acute phase reactions, inflammation, hematopoiesis, bone metabolism, and cancer progression. IL-6 activity is central to the transition from acute inflammation to either acquired immunity or chronic inflammatory disease. It is secreted by multiple cell types as a 22-28 kDa phosphorylated and variably glycosylated molecule (1-4). Mature porcine IL-6 is 183 amino acids (aa) in length and shares 61%, 42%, and 42% aa sequence identity with human, mouse, and rat IL-6 (5). IL-6 induces signaling through a cell surface heterodimeric receptor complex composed of a ligand binding subunit (IL-6 R) and a signal transducing subunit (gp130). IL-6 binds to IL-6 R, triggering IL-6 R association with gp130 and gp130 dimerization (6). gp130 is also a component of the receptors for CLC, CNTF, CT-1, IL-11, IL-27, LIF, and OSM (7). Soluble forms of IL-6 R are generated by both alternate splicing and proteolytic cleavage (3). In a mechanism known as trans-signaling, complexes of soluble IL-6 and IL-6 R elicit responses from gp130-expressing cells that lack cell surface IL‑6 R (3). Trans-signaling enables a wider range of cell types to respond to IL-6, as the expression of gp130 is ubiquitous while that of IL-6 R is predominantly restricted to hepatocytes, leukocytes, and lymphocytes (3). Soluble splice forms of gp130 block trans-signaling from IL-6/IL-6 R but not from other cytokines that utilize gp130 as a coreceptor (4, 8).
