Interleukin-3 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is single, a non-glycosylated, Polypeptide chain containing 154 amino acids fragment (20-152) and having a total molecular mass of 17.3kDa and fused with a 20 aa N-terminal His tag. The IL3 His is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Interleukin-3 is a pleiotropic cytokine produced primarily by activated T cells. IL-3 is thoµght to function via specific cell surface receptors to stimulate the proliferation, differentiation and survival of haematopoietic cell lines. IL-3 has also been shown to affect the functional activity of a variety of other cell types including mast cells, eosinophils, megakaryocytes and basophils.
Interleukin-3 His (1mg/ml) is supplied in 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 0.2mM PMSF and 10% glycerol.
