IL6 stimulation in mice

Forum rules
It is fine to promote your company's reagents. Just make sure they are relevant to CyTOF, and do so in moderation and style :-)

IL6 stimulation in mice

Hello all :)

We usually stimulate human whole blood with IL-6 for 15 minutes and stabilize using SmartTubes (immediately followed by -80 freezing).

We would like to now repeat this procedure with mice, using the PROT1 buffer (from SmartTube, without the actual tubes). Do you happen to know the concentration of IL6 and stimulation time needed for this? Alternatively - do you happen to know a paper where the authors performed such an experiment?

Any help would be appreciated greatly!

Hi Mayan,

We typically stimulate whole blood (human or mouse) with 100ng/mL IL-6 for 15 minutes and get a robust pSTAT3 response in T-cells and monocytes.
