IL-27 complex is synergizes with IL-12 in order to trigger the cytokine production of IFN-Gamma of CD4 (+) T cells. The biological effect of IL-27 is mediated by class-I cytokine receptor (WSX1/TCRR).
The pro-inflammatory activity of IL-27 is mediated through the growing expression of key molecules involved in the MHC class-I & MHC class-II pathways. Both MHC class-I and MHC-class-II expression are increased in endothelial cells after Interleukin-27 stimulation which suggests that it may play an important role in conferring the immune function on vascular endothelium IL-27p28 subunit can be induced by IFN-beta and during LPS-induced maturation of dendritic cells in type-I IFN-dependent manner through IFN regulatory factor-1 activation. Interleukin-27 regulates Interleukin-12 responsiveness of CD4+ T cells through Stat1-dependent and -independent mechanisms. IL-17 & IL-23 play an important IL-17 role in inflammation. Interleukin-27 possesses potent anti-angiogenic activity that plays an important role in its antitumor and antimetastatic activities.
EBV induced gene 3 plays a role, independently from IL-27, in regulating anti-viral or anti-tumoral immune responses. Interleukin-27 is a potent inhibitor of HIV-1 replication in macrophages, CD4+ T cells, peripheral blood mononuclear cells.
Interleukin-27 triggers STAT activation and gene transcription.
The Murine IL-27 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized IL-27 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
