Interleukin-21 Rat Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosilated polypeptide chain containing 129 amino acids and having a total molecular mass of 15.2kDa. The Rat IL-21 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
IL-21 is produced by CD4+ T cells in response to antigenic stimulation. Its action enhances antigen-specific responses of immune cells. The biological effects of IL-21 include induction of differentiation of T-cells-stimulated B-cells into plasma cells and memory B-cells, stimulation (in conjuction) with IL-4 of IgG production, and induction of apoptotic effects in naive B-cells and stimulated B-cells in the absence of T-cell signaling. Additionally, IL-21 promotes the anti-tumor activity of CD8+ T-cells and NK cells. IL-21 exerts its effect throµgh binding to a specific type I cytokine receptor, IL-21R, which also contains the gamma chain (°C) found in other cytokine receptors including IL-2, IL-4, IL-7, IL-9 and IL-15. The IL-21/IL-21R interaction triggers a cascade of events which includes activation of the tyrosine kinases JAK1 and JAK3, followed by activation of the transcription factors STAT1 and STAT3.

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Rat IL-21 was lyophilized from a 0.2
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Rat IL21 in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100
Lyophilized Rat IL-21 althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution Rat IL21 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.
