Recombinant Rat Interleukin 17A
Cytotoxic T-Lymphocyte-Associated Serine Esterase 8 (CTLA8)
Rat Interleukin 17A (IL17A) belongs to the IL17 family that contains IL17A, IL17B, IL17C, IL17D, IL17E and IL17F. All of the members of the IL17 family are proinflammatory cytokines that share four conserved cysteine residues, but diverge at the N-terminus. Both recombinant and natural IL17 have been shown to exist as disulfide linked homodimers, and mature IL17 contains one potential N-linked glycosylation site. IL17 is a T-cell expressed pleiotropic cytokine that regulates the activities of NF-kappaB and mitogen-activated protein kinases, and can stimulate the expression of IL-6 and cyclooxygenase-2 (PTGS2/COX-2), as well as enhance the production of nitric oxide (NO).
