Introduction

interleukin 12 subunit beta/alpha or IL12b/IL12a is a growth factor cytokine which increases the lytic activity of NK/lymphokine-activated killer cells, activated T and NK cells and prompt IFN-gamma production (through resting PBMC). IL12b/IL12a is an essential part to the process of cellular-immunity and activates the differentiation of Th1 cells originates from the precursor T helper cells. The protein is linked to IL23A and creates the IL-23 interleukin, by that, the autoimmune inflammation is induced and autoimmune inflammatory diseases and tumorigenesis are being affected.

Description

Interleukin 12 Human Recombinant is a glycosylated heterodimer containing 503 amino acids (306 amino acid rHuIL-12 p40 and the 197 amino acid rHuIL-12 p35 subunits) and having a molecular mass of 60kDa. IL12 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.            

Source

Baculovirus.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

Lyophilized from a 0.2µm filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.2.

Solubility

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Interleukin 12 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Stability

Lyophilized Interleukin 12 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution PDGF BB should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.

Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Purity

Greater than 97.0% as determined by analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Amino acid sequence

IL-12 is a heterodimer of IL-12A and IL-12B linked through a disulfide-bond:

Biological Activity

Determined by cell proliferation assay using PHA-stimulated human T lymphoblasts. The ED50 for this effect is 0.01-0.05 ng/mL corresponding to a specific activity of 1.1 × 104 units/μg, which is calibrated against rHuIL-12 WHO Standard.
