Target Details This gene encodes a cytokine that functions in inflammation and the maturation of B cells. The protein is primarily produced at sites of acute and chronic inflammation, where it is secreted into the serum and induces a transcriptional inflammatory response through interleukin 6 receptor, alpha. The functioning of this gene is implicated in a wide variety of inflammation-associated disease states, including suspectibility to diabetes mellitus and systemic juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): CV%<8%

Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess.

Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays):CV%<10%

Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty assays to assess.





To assess the linearity of the assay, samples were spiked with high concentrations of human IL-6 in various matrices and diluted with the Sample Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.


Typical Data


These standard curves are provided for demonstration only. A standard curve should be generated for each set of samples assayed.

Function Cytokine with a wide variety of biological functions. It is a potent inducer of the acute phase response. Plays an essential role in the final differentiation of B-cells into Ig-secreting cells Involved in lymphocyte and monocyte differentiation. Acts on B-cells, T-cells, hepatocytes, hematopoietic progenitor cells and cells of the CNS. Required for the generation of T(H)17 cells. Also acts as a myokine. It is discharged into the bloodstream after muscle contraction and acts to increase the breakdown of fats and to improve insulin resistance. It induces myeloma and plasmacytoma growth and induces nerve cells differentiation.
Involvement in disease Rheumatoid arthritis systemic juvenile (RASJ)
Subcellular Location Secreted

Q&A and Customer Reviews

Customer Reviews
  • Sample type: Serum
    Sample species: Human
    Review: Cell viability and cytotoxicity of PBMCs (e), IL-6 (f) and TNF-α(g) secretion levels with different incubation time. Temperature was 37.5 °C, MNP@DMSA concentration was 1.0 mg mL-1, and incubation time was 120 minutes.
    PMID: 30390582
  • Sample type: Serum
    Sample species: Human
    Review: Concentrations of IL-6 and TNF-α in MNP@CTAB-BSA group maintain at normal level when the incubation time increases from 30 minutes to 180 minutes. Concentrations of IL-6 and TNF-α in MNP@CTAB group rise above the normal level with prolonged incubation time.
  • Sample type: Serum
    Sample species: Human
    Review: Serum β-EP, MOR, IL-6 and IL-10 concentrations in the MDD were significantly higher than in the control group (p<0.05, Table 2), while EM-2 was not significantly different between both groups.
    PMID: 30677547
  • Sample type: Plasma (ARDS and Non-ARDS Groups)
    Sample species: Human
    Review: We found that plasma ANG-2 and sE-selectin levels in ARDS patients were dramatically higher than those in nonARDS patients, but IL-8 or IL-6 level displayed no difference between the ARDS and non-ARDS groups.
    PMID: 30008611
  • Sample type: Cell culture supernatant after Lnc-DC silencing
    Sample species: Human
    Review: The ELISA data indicate that Lnc-DC silencing significantly decreased the concentration of TNF-α. Similarly, we also observed a reduction in the concentration of IL-6
    PMID: 30202418
  • Tested application: ELISA
    Test sample: Biological fluids (Milk)
    Species: Human
    Review: We tested milk samples from healthy donors across lactational stage, so from 1 week after birth to 6 months, samples were collected every 2-4 weeks. Plated in duplicate for ELISA. No differences observed over time.
  • Sample type: Serum
    Sample species: Human
    Review:The main outcome measures in this study were circulating pro-inflammatory cytokine levels (TNF-α, IL-1B, IL-6, IL-10), urinary cortisol levels, beck depression inventory (BDI) score, weight and body mass index (BMI).
  • Sample type: Serum
    Sample species: Human
    Review: ELISA was used to analyze cytokines (TNF-α, IFN-γ, IL-2 and IL-6) expression after Jurkat and P116 cells were stimulated with anti-CD3/CD28 antibodiesfor 24 hours.
    PMID: 30639475
