Background: Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a pleiotropic cytokine produced by a variety of cells during infection, trauma, and immunological challenge (PMID: 8274730). IL-6 acts via a receptor complex consisting of two distinct membrane-bound glycoproteins, an 80-kDa IL-6-binding subunit (IL6R, CD126, gp80) and a 130-kDa signal-transducing element (gp130, CD130). After binding of IL-6 to membrane-bound IL6R, the complex of IL-6 and IL6R associates with gp130, thus activating the receptor (PMID: 9716487). Expression of gp130 is found in almost all organs while expression of IL6R is predominantly confined to hepatocytes and leukocyte subpopulations (monocytes, neutrophils, T cells, and B cells) (PMID: 11149892). Soluble form of IL6R has been found in human serum and urine.
Storage: Store at -20℃. Avoid freeze / thaw cycles.
Recommended Dilutions: WB 1:500 - 1:2000, IHC 1:50 - 1:200

Target (Information from UniProt)
Function: Part of the receptor for interleukin 6. Binds to IL6 with low affinity, but does not transduce a signal. Signal activation necessitate an association with IL6ST. Activation may lead to the regulation of the immune response, acute-phase reactions and hematopoiesis.
Tissue Specificity: Isoform 2 is expressed in peripheral blood mononuclear cells and weakly found in urine and serum.
Sequence Similarities: Belongs to the type I cytokine receptor family. Type 3 subfamily.
Post-Translational Modification: A short soluble form may also be released from the membrane by proteolysis.
Cellular Location: Basolateral cell membrane.
