ActoFactor™ Recombinant Mouse Interleukin 4

  • Specification
  • Recommended Products
Cat.No.
CSC-CTK0683
Description
Recombinant mouse Interleukin-4 (rMu IL-4) is a potent lymphoid cell growth factor, which stimulates the growth and survivability of certain B cells and T cells. Produced by mast cells, T cells and bone marrow stromal cells, IL-4 regulates the differentiation of naive CD4+ T cells into helper Th2 cells, characterized by their cytokine-secretion profile that includes secretion of IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, IL-10, and IL-13, which favor a humoral immune response. Another dominant function of IL-4 is the regulation of immunoglobulin class switching to the IgG1 and IgE isotypes. Excessive IL-4 production by Th2 cells has been associated with elevated IgE production and allergy. Recombinant mouse IL-4 is a 13.5 kDa globular protein containing 120 amino acid residues.
Species

Expression System
E.coli
Purity
Greater than 98% as determined by SDS-PAGE, FPLC and HPLC analysis.
Activity
Recombinant IL-4 is fully biologically active when compared to standards. The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent proliferation of Murine HT-2 cells is ≤ 2 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of Greater than 5 x 10^5 units/mg.
Endotoxin Level
Less than 1 EU/μg.
Formulation
Sterile-filtered through a 0.2 micron filter and lyophilized with no additives.
Reconstitution
Please centrifuge product briefly before opening the vial. The lyophilized recombinant mouse IL-4 should be reconstituted in sterile, ultra-pure water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. This solution can then be diluted into other aqueous buffers and stored at -20°C for future use.
Storage & Stability
The lyophilized powder, though stable at room temperature for up to 3 weeks, is best stored desiccated at -20°C. Reconstituted mouse IL-4 should be used immediately or stored long-term in undiluted working aliquots at -20°C. For long-term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Avoid repeated freeze / thaw cycles.
