Currently, MBLI products are delivered with the product data sheet included in the package. This is an announcement that we will stop including the product data sheet in the package for certain products. It will be applied sequentially to batches manufactured after April 2022 for some products. You can download the product data sheet from our website whenever you need. Allow us to apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Many of our products currently utilize clear-color vial tube labels. We will be changing the color of the labels to white for production lots manufactured after February 1, 2022. The product description written on the label and product itself will not be changed.

Integrins are heterodimeric cell surface receptors involved in cell-extracellular matrix and cell-cell adhesion. In addition, integrins convey two-way signaling between cells and their surroundings and participate in the regulation of a variety of cellular processes, including cell proliferation, migration,survival, tissue invasion, and innate immunity. Mammalian cells have 18 distinct integrin α subunits and 8 β subunits, which can combine in various ways to form 24 different receptor heterodimers. Integrin αvβ6 is expressed exclusively by epithelial cells and functions as a receptor for extracellular matrix proteins such as fibronectin. Read more

The HLA (human leukocyte antigen) system, also known as the human MHC (major histocompatibility complex), was named after its discovery with alloantibodies against leukocytes. The human MHC is located on the short arm of chromosome 6 (6p21) and spans 3,600 kilobases of DNA. It is divided into three regions, with HLA being one of the most diverse genetic systems in humans (1). Read more

Interleukin-18 (IL-18) is an effective pro-inflammatory cytokine for the host defense against infections and controls the innate and acquired immune response. Both hematopoietic and non-hematopoietic cells, including monocytes, macrophages, keratinocytes, and mesenchymal cells produce IL-18. IL-18 can increase Th1 responses and is critical for IFN-gamma production. IL-18 is regulated by IL-18BP by inhibiting the biological activity of IL-18, thereby reducing IFN-gamma production in turn suppressing the Th1 immune responses. The dysregulation of the IL-18/IL-18BP balance is associated with multiple biological effects and pathological outcomes (1). Both IL-18 and IL18BP are connected to developing psoriasis, atopic dermatitis (AD), lupus erythematosus (LE), and other inflammatory skin diseases. Still, IL-18 is more prominently involved with chronic inflammation and autoimmune disease such as inflammatory bowel diseases, type I diabetes mellitus, chronic liver disease, adult-onset Still’s disease, hemophagocytic syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura.
