ICFC - Quality tested

Application Notes:

ELISA Detection: The biotinylated 8F5.1A9 antibody is useful as a detection antibody for a sandwich ELISA assay, when used in conjunction with purified TC11-18H10.1 antibody as the capture antibody and recombinant mouse IL-17A/F as the standard.

Flow Cytometry: The fluorochrome-labeled 8F5.1A9 antibody is useful for intracellular immunofluorescent staining and flow cytometric analysis to identify IL-17F-producing cells within mixed cell populations.

Recommended Usage:

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by intracellular immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤0.25 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume.  It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

* Alexa Fluor® 647 has a maximum emission of 668 nm when it is excited at 633 nm / 635 nm.

Interleukin 17F (IL-17F) is a 37 kD IL-17 family member.  The IL-17 family consists of six members including IL-17 (also called IL-17A), IL-17B, IL-17C, IL-17D, IL-17E (also called IL-25), and IL-17F.  IL-17F shares the strongest similarity to IL-17A and forms a homodimer or heterodimer with IL-17A. It is produced by Th17 cells, mast cells, basophils, and epithelial cells.  IL-17F is an important regulator of inflammatory responses.  It is involved in host defense against mucoepithelial infection by Staphylococcus aureus and Citrobacter rodentium.  Overexpression of the IL-17F gene in the airways of mice is associated with airway neutrophilia, the induction of many cytokines, an increase in airway hyperreactivity, and mucus hypersecretion. IL-17F is also involved in cancer immunity and autoimmune responses. IL-17F, like IL-17A, depends on IL-17R for its signaling in vitro and in vivo.  P38 MAPK, ERK1/2, Act1 (NF-kB activator protein 1), and TRAF6 are involved in IL-17F signaling.

Other Names: Interleukin-17F, ML-1
Structure: Forms a 37 kD homodimer or heterodimer with IL-17A, a IL-17 family member.
