Description

Interleukin-2 (IL-2) is an interleukin, a type of cytokine signaling molecule in the immune system. It is a 15,5 – 16 kDa protein that regulates the activities of white blood cells (leukocytes, often lymphocytes) that are responsible for immunity. IL-2 is part of the body’s natural response to microbial infection, and in discriminating between foreign (“non-self”) and “self”. IL-2 mediates its effects by binding to IL-2 receptors, which are expressed by lymphocytes.

Source:
Escherichia coli

Endotoxin Test:
<0.1 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.

Activity:
Measure by its ability to induce proliferation in CTLL-2 cells. The ED50 for this effect is <0.2 ng/mL. The specific activity of recombinant human IL-2 is approximately >2.5 x 107 IU/mg.
Measure by its ability to induce proliferation in NK cells. The ED50 for this effect is <46 ng/mL.

Purity:
>98% as determined by SDS-PAGE. Ni-NTA chromatography

Formulation:
The protein was lyophilized from a solution containing 1X PBS, pH 8.0.

Reconstitution:
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized protein in sterile H2O to a concentration not less than 100 μg/mL and incubate the stock solution for at least 20 min to ensure sufficient re-dissolved.

Storage:
Lyophilized protein should be stored at -20°C. Upon reconstitution, protein aliquots should be stored at -20°C or -80°C.

Note:
Please use within one month after protein reconstitution.
