Recombinant Human IL12B

Cat. No.: IL12B-220H
Product Overview: Recombinant Human interleukin 12B DNA sequences encoding the p40 subunit of the human IL-12 protein was expressed inSf 21 insect cells.
Description: Interleukin 12 (IL-12, NK cell stimulatory factor, cytotoxic lymphocyte maturation factor) is a heterodimeric cytokine that is naturally produced by dendritic cells , macrophages and human B-lymphoblastoid cells (NC-37) in response to antigenic stimulation. IL-12 is involved in the differentiation of naive T cells into Th1 cells, which is important in resistance against pathogens. It is known as a T cell stimulating factor, which can stimulate the growth and function of T cells. It stimulates the production of IFN-γ and TNF-α from T and natural killer (NK) cells, and reduces IL-4 mediated suppression of IFN-γ. IL-12 also has anti-angiogenic activity, which can block the formation of new blood vessels. IL-12 binds to the IL-12 receptor and upon binding, IL-12R-β2 becomes tyrosine phosphorylated and provides binding sites for kinases, Tyk2 and Jak2. These are important in activating critical transcription factor proteins such as STAT4 which are implicated in IL-12 signaling in T cells and NK cells.
Source: Sf21 Insect Cells.
Molecular Weight: The predicted molecular weight of Recombinant Human IL-12 is Mr 40 kDa.
State Of Matter: Lyophilized.
Formulation: This recombinant protein solution was 0.2 µm filtered and formulated in modified Dulbecco's phosphate buffered saline (1X PBS) pH 7.2 – 7.3 containing 50 μg of bovine serum albumin per 1 μg of cytokine with no calcium, magnesium, or preservatives.
Purity: > 90% by SDS Page and analyzed by silver stain.
Endotoxin: < 1.0 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method.
Biological Activity: The monomeric human IL-12 p40 monomer exhibits no IL-12 antagonist activity. rhIL-12 p40 is intended for use as a control for anti-human IL-12 p40 antibodies.
Storage And Stability: This lyophilized protein is stable for six to twelve months when stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C. After aseptic reconstitution, this protein may be stored at 2°C to 8°C for one month or at -20°C to -70°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles. See Product Insert for exact lot specific storage instructions.
