      Key Applications
      • ELISA
      • Western Blotting
      Application NotesDetecting antibody in ELISA, using monoclonal anti-ovine IL-6 as capture antibody. Recommended dilution factor 1:500. See suggested protocol.

      Western Blot

      Optimal working dilutions must be determined by the end user.

      Suggested ELISA Protocol For Ovine IL-6

      1. Coat high capacity microtitre wells (e.g. Nunc maxisorp) with monoclonal anti-IL-6 antibody (Chemicon Catalog Number MAB1004) at a concentration of 5 μg/mL in 0.1 M carbonate buffer pH 9.6 overnight at 4ºC.

      2. Wash wells 3 x with PBS + 0.05% Tween 20 (PBST).

      3. Add samples to wells. Incubate at room temperature in a humidified box for 1 hour. Wash 3 x with PBST.

      4. Dilute rabbit anti-IL-6 (Chemicon Catalog Number AB1839) 1:500 in PBST and add 100 μL to wells. Incubate at room temperature for 30 minutes. Wash 3 x with PBST.

      5. Dilute anti-rabbit IgG-HRP to appropriate level in PBST and add 100 μL to wells. Incubate 30 minutes at room temperature. Wash 3 x with PBST.

      6. Add 100 μL of TMB chromagen to each well. Incubate for 5-10 minutes and stop reaction with 50 μL of 2M sulphuric acid.


      The anti-rabbit IgG HRP must be adsorbed against mouse immunoglobulin, and should be checked for non-reactivity with coated plates.

      Non-specific binding may be reduced by addition of protein such as skim milk powder to the diluents.

      Assay sensitivity may be altered by adjusting incubation times and reagent concentrations.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: SwissProt: P05231 # IL-6 is a cytokine with a wide variety of biological functions: it plays an essential role in the final differentiation of B-cells into Ig-secreting cells, it induces myeloma and plasmacytoma growth, it induces nerve cells differentiation, in hepatocytes it induces acute phase reactants.
      SIZE: 212 amino acids; 23718 Da
      PTM: N- and O-glycosylated.
      DISEASE: SwissProt: P05231 # Genetic variations in IL6 are associated with susceptibility to systemic juvenile rheumatoid arthritis [MIM:604302]. Systemic juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is juvenile chronic arthritis associated with severe, debilitating, extraarticular features, and occasionally fatal complications. Despite medical treatment, many children still experience early joint destruction, necessitating surgical replacement. & At least 1 polymorphism in the IL6 gene renders HIV- infected men susceptible to Kaposi sarcoma [MIM:148000]. Kaposi sarcoma is a sarcoma of spindle cells mixed with angiomatous tissue. A relatively rare malignant skin tumor that results in multifocal purplish coloured papules or plaques that eventually form nodules. Most commonly seen in patients who suffer from AIDS.
      SIMILARITY: SwissProt: P05231 ## Belongs to the IL-6 superfamily.
