||Recombinant human IL5,produced in e. coli, is a non-glycosylated homodimer with each polypeptidechain containing 132 amino acids with a total MW 26.52284 kDa.
||The protein encoded by thisgene is a cytokine that acts as a growth and differentiation factor for bothB cells and eosinophils. This cytokine is a main regulator of eosinopoiesis,eosinophil maturation and activation. The elevated production of thiscytokine is reported to be related to asthma or hypereosinophilic syndromes.
||The protein waslyophilized from a concentrated (10mg/ml) solution with no additives.
||Lyophilizedrecombinant human IL-5, although stable at room temperature, should be storeddesiccated below 0°C. Reconstituted recombinant human IL-5 is best storedrefrigerated at 4°C.
