  • Details

    The eBio64CAP17 antibody reacts with human IL-17A; the antibody has been reported to cross react with Rhesus monkey IL-17A, as verified by intracellular staining experiments. The eBio64CAP17 antibody is a neutralizing antibody. This antibody has been shown to have no reactivity to human IL-17F. Reactivity to other members of the IL-17 family has not been evaluated. Interleukin-17A (IL-17A) is a CD4+ T cell-derived cytokine that promotes inflammatory responses in cell lines and is elevated in rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, and transplant rejection. The cDNA encoding human IL-17A was isolated from a library of CD4+ T cells; the encoded protein exhibits 72 percent amino acid identity with HVS13 , an open reading frame from a T lymphotropic Herpesvirus saimiri, and 63 percent with mouse CTLA-8 (cytotoxic T-lymphocyte associated antigen-8). Human IL-17A exists as glycosylated 20-30 kD homodimers. High levels of IL-17A homodimer are produced by activated peripheral blood CD4+ T-cells. IL-17A enhances expression of the intracellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) in human fibroblasts. Human IL-17A also stimulates epithelial, endothelial, or fibroblastic cells to secrete IL-6, IL-8, G-CSF, and PGE2. In the presence of human IL-17A, fibroblasts can sustain the proliferation of CD34+ hematopoietic progenitors and induce maturation into neutrophils. Mouse, rat, and human IL-17A can induce IL-6 secretion in mouse stromal cells, indicating that all homologs can recognize the mouse IL-17A receptor.

    IL-23-dependent, IL-17A-producing CD4+ T cells (Th-17 cells) have been identified as a unique subset of Th cells that develops along a pathway that is distinct from the Th1- and Th2- cell differentiation pathways. The hallmark effector molecules of Th1 and Th2 cells, e.g., IFN-g and IL-4, have each been found to negatively regulate the generation of these Th-17 cells.

    Additionally, activated human CD4+ T cells have been found to produce the IL-17A/F heterodimer, as well as the corresponding homodimers. In comparing the relative potency of IL-17A, IL-17F, and IL-17A/F, all three were found to induce GRO-a secretion; IL-17A was most potent, followed by IL-17A/F heterodimer, then IL-17F (100fold lower than IL-17A). eBio64CAP17 can be used to detect IL-17 heterodimers by immunoprecipitation followed by immunoblot withH17F10A7 anti-IL17F monoclonal antibody.

    The eBio64CAP17 has been shown to react to rhesus and marmoset primates.
