Mouse Interleukin 10 (IL-10) is a species-specific pleiotropic cytokine that can exert either immunostimulatory or immunosuppressive effects. As an immunostimulatory cytokine, IL-10 can act on B cells to enhance their viability, proliferation, immunoglobulin secretion and class II MHC expression. IL-10 is
also a growth co-stimulator for thymocytes and mast cells, as well as an enhancer of cytotoxic T cell development. As an immunosuppressant, IL-10 can inhibit the accessory function and antigen-presenting capacity of monocytes by downregulating class II MHC expression. It inhibits IFN-γ synthesis and Th1 differentiation in the mouse system. Recombinant mouse IL-10 has a predicted molecular mass of approximately 18 kDa.
Mouse Il10 expressed in E.coli
A DNA sequence encoding the mature mouse IL-10 protein sequence was expressed in E. coli.
CAT# CSC-CTK0049-5 (5 μg); CAT# CSC-CTK0049-25 (25 μg)
Greater than 97% as determined by SDS-PAGE and visualized by silver stain
The biological activity of mouse IL-10 is measured in a cell proliferation assay using the murine mast cell line, MC/9-2. The ED50 for this effect is typically 0.4 - 1.2 ng/mL.
Endotoxin level is <1.0 EU per 1 μg cytokine, as determined by the LAL method.
Recombinant mouse IL-10 is lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in 20 mM Tris, pH 7.0 containing 50 μg bovine serum albumin per 1 μg cytokine.
Reconstitute mouse IL-10 at a concentration greater than 1 μg/mL with sterile phosphate buffered saline (PBS) containing at least 0.1% human or bovine serum albumin.
Storage & Stability
Lyophilized mouse IL-10 is stable at -20°C to -70°C for up to twelve months from date of receipt. Reconstituted mouse IL-10 can be stored under sterile conditions at 2 - 8°C for one month, or at -20°C to -70°C (in a manual defrost freezer) for three months without detectable loss of activity. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
