||IL4 is a pleiotropic cytokine produced by activated T cells. IL4 is a ligand for interleukin 4 receptor. The interleukin 4 receptor also binds to IL13, which may contribute to many overlapping functions of this cytokine and IL13. STAT6, a signal transducer and activator of transcription, has been shown to play a central role in mediating the immune regulatory signal of this cytokine. This gene, IL3, IL5, IL13, and CSF2 form a cytokine gene cluster on chromosome 5q, with this gene particularly close to IL13. IL4, IL13 and IL5 are found to be regulated coordinately by several long-range regulatory elements in an over 120 kilobase range on the chromosome. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants of this gene encoding distinct isoforms have been reported.
||IL-4 Human Recombinant produced in HEK cells is a glycosylated monomer, having a molecular weight range of 14-19kDa due to glycosylation.
The IL-4 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
||Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
||The IL4 was lyophilized from 1mg/ml in 1xPBS.
||It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized IL-4 in sterile water not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
||Lyophilized IL-4 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution IL4 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
||Greater than 95% as obsereved by SDS-PAGE.
||The activity was determined by the dose dependent stimulation of the proliferation of human TF-1 cells (human erythroleukemic indicator cell line) and is typically 0.1-0.5ng/ml.
