Recombinant Mouse Il16

Cat.No.: Il16-548M
Product Overview: Recombinant Mouse Il16 produced in E. coli is approximately 12.2 kDa, a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 118 amino acids.
Description: Interleukin-16 (IL-16) is also called lymphocyte chemoattractant factor (LCF) and it is mostly secreted by lymphocytes, epithelial cells, eosinophils, and CD8+ T cells. It has many functions including induction of the IL-2Rα on T cells, suppression of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) replication, inhibition of T-cell antigen receptor/CD3 mediated T-cell stimulation in mixed lymphocyte reactions and so on. It signals through CD4 receptor. Furthermore, recombinant murine interleukin-16 contains 118 amino acid residues and it shares about 85 % a.a. sequence identity with different isoforms of human IL-16.
Source: E. coli
Species: Mouse
Form: Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4.
Bio-activity: Fully biologically active when compared to standard. The biologically active determined by a chemotaxis bioassay using human CD4+ T lymphocytes is in a concentration range of 1.0-100 ng/ml.
Molecular Mass: 12.2 kDa
Endotoxin: Less than 1 EU/μg of rMuIL-16 as determined by LAL method.
Purity: >98% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses.
Usage: This material is for research, laboratory or further evaluation purposes. NOT FOR HUMAN USE.
Storage: This lyophilized preparation is stable at 2-8 centigrade, but should be kept at -20 centigrade for long term storage, preferably desiccated. Upon reconstitution, the preparation is stable for up to one week at 2-8 centigrade. For maximal stability, apportion the reconstituted preparation into working aliquots and store at -20 centigrade to -70 centigrade. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
Reconstitution: We recommend that this vial be briefy centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute in sterile distilled water or aqueous buffer containing 0.1% BSA to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Stock solutions should be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at ≤ -20 centigrade. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.
