IL21 Protein, Mouse, Recombinant: Product Information

Purity
> 97 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Endotoxin
Please contact us for more information.
Activity
Measured by its ability to induce Interferon gamma secretion by human natural killer lymphoma NK-92 cells.
The ED50 for this effect is typically 4-20 ng/ml.
Protein Construction
A DNA sequence encoding the soluble form of mouse IL21 (Q9ES17) (Pro 25-Ser 146) was expressed, with an initial Met at the C-terminus.
Accession#
Expressed Host
E. coli
Species
Mouse
Predicted N Terminal
Met
Molecule Mass
The recombinant mouse IL21 consists of 123 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 14.3KDa. It migrates as a 15 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Formulation
Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.5
Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization.
Please refer to the specific buffer information in the hard copy of CoA.
Shipping
In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
Stability & Storage
Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -20℃ to -80℃
Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Reconstitution
A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

IL21 Background Information

IL21 belongs to the IL-15/IL-21 family. It is a cytokine with immunoregulatory activity. Cytokines are proteinaceous signaling compounds that are major mediators of the immune response. They control many different cellular functions including proliferation, differentiation and cell survival/apoptosis but are also involved in several pathophysiological processes including viral infections and autoimmune diseases. Cytokines are synthesized under various stimuli by a variety of cells of both the innate (monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells) and adaptive (T- and B-cells) immune systems. IL21 is expressed in activated CD4-positive T-cells but not in CD8-positive T-cells, B-cells, or monocytes. It may promote the transition between innate and adaptive immunity. IL-21 has been tried as therapy for alleviating allergic responses. It can significantly decrease pro-inflammatory cytokines produced by T cells in addition to decreasing IgE levels in a mouse model for rhinitis (nasal passage inflammation)
