IL-25 also called IL-17E cytokine has a sequence similarity with IL17. IL-17E indluces NF-kappaB activation, and stimulates the production of IL-8. IL17E and IL17B are ligands for the cytokine receptor IL17BR. IL-25 is a proinflammatory cytokine favoring Th2-type immune response. The upregulation of costimulation-induced IL-17E receptors and release of cytokines and chemokines from IL-17E treated costimulated Th cells are differentially regulated by intracellular JNK, p38 MAPK and NF-kappaB activity. Blocking Iinterleukin-25 prevents airway hyperresponsiveness, a critical feature of clinical asthma. IL25 produced by innate effector eosinophils and basophils increase the allergic inflammation by enhancing the maintenance and functions of TSLP-DC activated adaptive Th2 memory cells. Over expression of IL-25 up-regulates gene expression of Th2 cytokines and induces growth retardation, jaundice, and multiorgan inflammation in a transgenic mouse model. IL-25 contributes to the induction and maintenance of eosinophilic inflammation by acting on lung fibroblasts which supports the fact that IL-17E is an important factor in asthma pathophysiology. IL-17E operates by amplifying TH2 cell-mediated allergic airway inflammation but doesn’t induce allergic inflammation in vivo.
Interleukin-17E Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a non-glycosylated disulfide-linked homodimer containing 2x145 amino acids (with an N-terminal Methionine for each chain total aa for each chain 146) and having a total predicted molecular mass of 33.7kDa.
The IL-25 Human is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution containing no additives.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Interleukin Human IL25 in sterile 10mM HCl not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized Interleukin Human IL17E although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution Human IL-25 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.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
