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.


Interleukin-2 Human Recombinant produced in yeast is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 134 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 14 kDa. The IL-2 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.


Pichia pastoris.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.


The protein was lyophilized from a 0.2µm filtered solution in 20mM sodium phosphate buffer pH 7.0 in absence of any carrier protein.


It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Interleukin-2 in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.


Lyophilized Interleukin-2 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18C. Upon reconstitution Interleukin-2 should be stored at 4C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18C.
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.


Greater than 98% as determined by SDS-PAGE.

Biological Activity

The biological activity is determined by the dose dependent proliferation of mouse CTLL–2 cells. Optimal concentration for individual application should be determined by a dose response assay. ED50 range = 0.08–0.5ng/ml
