IL-17F is part of the IL-17 cytokine family which consists of at least seven structurally related proteins (IL-17A, B, C, D, E, F, and A/F). IL-17F homodimer adopts a cysteine knot motif formed through the interactions of four cysteines, one of which is responsible for inter-chain bonding. IL-17F is most closely related to IL-17A, sharing 50% amino acid sequence homology. It is expressed by Th17 cells, along with IL-17A homodimer and IL-17A/F heterodimer. IL-17F has been shown to inhibit endothelial cell angiogenesis and induce increased production of IL-2, TGF-β, and MCP-1, playing a critical role in the regulation of inflammatory reactions and in a variety of auto-immune diseases.
The IL-17A/F heterodimer consists of the monomeric units of IL-17A and IL-17F. It is a naturally expressed and biologically active molecule. While much has been studied about IL-17A and IL-17F, it is still unclear how each distinctively induces the inflammatory response, and what role IL-17A/F also plays in it. It is known that all three cytokines are produced in different amounts, and each has different degrees of pro-inflammatory effects. All seem to interact with the IL-17RA/IL-17RC receptor complex, and signal via the NF-κB pathway to induce secretion of inflammatory cytokines and recruit granulocytes.
BioLegend's purified Poly5166 antibody is IL-17F specific and can be paired with biotinylated Poly5166 to recognize IL-17F or with biotinylated anti-human IL-17A clone BL23 to recognize the IL-17A/F heterodimer.

- Application Notes
The pure Poly5166 (Cat. No. 516601) antibody is useful as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA assay. Poly5166 can be used as a poly-poly pair with biotinylated Poly5166 to recognize human IL-17F, or it can be used as a poly-mono pair with biotinylated BL23 (Cat. No. 512705) to recognize the human IL-17A/F heterodimer (Cat. No. 580609).
