Introduction

ICOS (inducible T-cell costimulatory) belongs to the CD28 family of immune-assisted stimulatory receptors. ICOS forms homodimers and takes a significant part in immune responses, cell-cell signaling, as well as regulation of cell proliferation. The interaction of B7-H2 / ICOS takes a vital role in T-cell differentiation, T-B cell interaction in addition to humoral immune response is essential for the formation of reproductive centers as well as the production of cytokine IL-4. Moreover, ICOS is more effective in inducing IL-10 production, a cytokine which is important for the inhibitory function of T regulatory cells. The ICOS-B7RP-1 and B7-1 / B7-2-CD28 / CTLA-4 pathways offer a significant second signal which can regulate the inhibition, activation and fine regulation of T-lymphocyte responses. ICOS stimulates the production of Th1 and Th2 cytokines, however it can also participate in the generation of Th2 cells.

Description

ICOS produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 362 amino acids (21-140a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 40.8kDa. (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 40-57kDa). ICOS is expressed with an 242 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Sf9, Baculovirus cells.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered colorless solution.

Formulation

ICOS protein solution (0.25mg/ml) contains 20mM MES buffer (pH 5.5), 40% glycerol, 2mM DTT and 1mM EDTA 0.1M NaCl.
