Regulatory Status Legend
The O33-782 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to Interleukin-17F (IL-17F). IL-17F is a member of the IL-17 family of cytokines. IL-17F is encoded by the IL17F gene located in chromosome 6 (location: 6p12). IL-17F is a proinflammatory cytokine that is produced by activated T cells including differentiated CD4+ T helper 17 (Th17) cells. Activated Th17 cells can express disulfide-linked IL-17F and IL-17A homodimers as well as IL-17A/IL-17F heterodimers. These IL-17 dimers act by binding to and signaling through IL-17 receptor complexes (IL-17R). IL-17R are comprised of transmembrane IL-17RA and IL-17-RC protein subunits that are expressed by a variety of target cells including epithelial and endothelial cells, keratinocytes, fibroblasts, and granulocytes. IL-17F can induce target cells to produce proinflammatory cytokines such as IL-1β, IL-6, G-CSF, GM-CSF, and TNF and chemokines including CXCL1/Gro-α, CXCL2/Gro-β, and CXCL8/IL-8 that attract and activate leukocytes, eg, neutrophils. Th17 and other IL-17F-producing cells play protective roles in the clearance of extracellular pathogens, including bacteria and fungi. IL-17F can also play adverse roles in inflammation associated with asthma and autoimmune diseases.
Alexa Fluor® 647 conjugates are highly photostable and remain fluorescent over a broad pH range. The excitation and emission maxima are nearly identical to those of APC. However, APC tends to be brighter while Alexa Fluor® 647 is more optimal for intracellular applications. This fluorochrome exhibits uncommon photostability, making it an ideal choice for use in fluorescence microscopy. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, APC and Alexa Fluor® 647 cannot be used simultaneously.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 was removed.
- This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
- Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
- Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for allophycocyanin (APC).
