Introduction

IL2 is a secreted cytokine that is important for the proliferation of T and B lymphocytes. The receptor of this cytokine is a heterotrimeric protein complex whose gamma chain is also shared by interleukin 4 (IL4) and interleukin 7 (IL7). The expression of this gene in mature thymocytes is monoallelic, which represents an unusual regulatory mode for controlling the precise expression of a single gene. The targeted disruption of a similar gene in mice leads to ulcerative colitis-like disease, which suggests an essential role of this gene in the immune response to antigenic stimuli.

Description

Interleukin2 Porcine Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 134 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 15217 Dalton.
The IL-2 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

The protein (1mg/ml) was lyophilized was lyophilized from a 0.2µm filtered concentrated solution in 1×PBS, pH 7.4.

Solubility

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized IL 2 in sterile distilled H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Stability

Lyophilized IL2 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution IL-2 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Purity

Greater than 96.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
