Recombinant Human IL-18 R alpha/IL-1 R5 His-tag, CF Summary
Measured by its ability to inhibit the Recombinant Human IL-18/IL-1F4 Catalog # 9124-IL) induced response on KG-1 human acute myelogenous leukemia cells in the presence of Recombinant Human IL-18 R beta /IL-1 R7 Fc Chimera (Catalog # 9124-IL). The ED50 for this effect is 0.400-4.00 μg/mL.
Glu20-Arg329, with a C-terminal 6-His tag
CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our recombinant proteins. Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration. The carrier free version does not contain BSA.
In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or as an ELISA standard. In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA could interfere.

Recombinant Human IL‑18 R alpha /IL‑1 R5 His-tag Protein (Catalog # 11179-LR) inhibits the Recombinant Human IL‑18/IL‑1F4 (9124-IL) induced response on KG‑1 human acute myelogenous leukemia cells in the presence of Recombinant Human IL‑18 R beta /IL-1 R7 Fc Chimera (118-AP). The ED50 for this effect is 0.400-4.00 μg/mL.
2 μg/lane of Recombinant Human IL‑18 R alpha /IL‑1 R5 His-tag Protein (Catalog # 11179-LR) was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) and non-reducing (NR) conditions and visualized by Coomassie® Blue staining, showing bands at 57-68- kDa.
Background: IL-18 R alpha/IL-1 R5
IL-18 Receptor alpha (IL-18 Ra), also known as IL-18 R1, IL-1 R5, and IL-1 Rrp, is a transmembrane component of the IL-18 Receptor (1). It associates with IL‑18 Rb/IL‑1 R7 to form the high affinity receptor complex for IL-18 and confer cellular responsiveness to IL-18 (2, 3). IL-18 is a member of the IL-1 family of cytokines and shares numerous immunoregulatory functions with IL-12. Mature human IL-18 Ra consists of a 308 amino acid (aa) extracellular domain (ECD) with three immunoglobulin-like domains, a 21 aa transmembrane segment, and a 191 aa cytoplasmic domain (4). Within the ECD, human IL-18 Ra shares 56% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat IL-18 Ra. IL-18 Ra is widely expressed on epithelial cells as well as on B cells, NK cells, CD4+ and CD8+ T cells, and dendritic cells (5-8). Signaling through the IL-18 receptor promotes a Th1 biased immune response and NK cell cytolytic activity (6, 7, 9-11). It also contributes to cigarette smoke-induced airway inflammation and epithelial damage (12).
