Interleukin-12 Mouse Recombinant produced in Sf9 insect cells is a glycosylated disulfide linked heterodimeric polypeptide containing 506 amino acids and having a molecular weight of 75 kDa comprised of disulfide-bonded 35 kDa (p35) and 40 kDa (p40) subunits.The IL-12 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
IL-12 is a heterodimeric cytokine that stimulates the production of interferon gamma from T-cells and natural killer cells, and also induces differentiation of Th1 helper cells. It is an initiator of cell-mediated immunity.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The protein was lyophilized from 0.5xPBS, pH 7.5.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized murine IL12 in sterile distilled pyrogen free water at 100
Lyophilized mouse IL-12 althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored below -18°C. Upon reconstitution IL12 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.
IL-12 Mouse has full biological activity when compared to standards. The ED50 is determined by the dose-dependent induced expression of CD25 on CD8+ mouse T cells is 10-20 ng/ml corresponding to a specific activity of 50,000-100,000units/mg.
