IL-17D is a disulfide-linked homodimer of two 185 amino acid polypeptide chains. It belongs to the IL-17 family of structurally-related cytokines that share a highly conserved C-terminal region, but differ from one another in their N-terminal regions and in their distinct biological roles. The six known members of this family, IL-17A through IL-17F, are secreted as homodimers. IL-17D has the ability to stimulate the production of IL-6, IL-8 and GM-CSF, and inhibits hemopoiesis of myeloid progenitor cells in colony-forming assays. Recombinant Human IL-17D is a 40.5 kDa disulfide-linked homodimer of two 185 amino acid polypeptide chains.

This was determined by SDS-PAGE gel and HPLC analysis.
Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.5-1.0 mg/ml. Do not vortex.
This solution can be stored at 2-8°C for up to 1 week. For extended storage, it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer containing a carrier protein (example 0.1% HSA) and store in working aliquots at -20°C to -80°C.
