Interleukin-20 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated homodimeric polypeptide chain containing 2 x 153 amino acids and having a total molecular mass of 35,212 Dalton. The IL-20 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
IL20 is a cytokine structurally related to interleukin 10 (IL10). IL20 cytokine has been shown to transduce its signal throµgh signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) in keratinocytes. A specific receptor for this cytokine is found to be expressed in skin and upregulated dramatically in psoriatic skin, sµggesting a role for this protein in epidermal function and psoriasis.
IL10D, ZCYTO10, IL-20, MGC96907, Four alpha helix cytokine Zcyto10.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Lyophilized carrier free.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Interleukin -20 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O at a concentration of 0.5mg/ml or less.
Lyophilized Interleukin-20 althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution IL20 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.
Amino Acid Sequence
The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Met-Leu-Lys-Thr-Leu.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
The Biological Activity was determined by measuring the dose dependent activation of STAT3 in human epidermal keratinocytes (HEKa cells).Significant STAT3 activation is observed with 100 ng/mL of recombinant human IL-20 corresponding to a Specific Activity of 10,000IU/mg.
