Interleukin-4 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is single, a non-glycosylated, Polypeptide chain containing 150 amino acids fragment (25-153) and having a total molecular mass of 17.2kDa.The IL-4 is fused to a 20 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Interleukin-4 is a pleiotropic cytokine produced primarily by activated T lymphocytes, basophils and mast cells. Multiple immune response-modulating functions are performed by IL-4 on a variety of cell types and it has an important role in the regulator of isotype switching, induction of IgE production in B lymphocytes and differentiation of precursor T helper cells. IL-4 binds to both membrane-bound and secreted soluble IL-4 receptors.
Interleukin-4 His-Tag is supplied in 20mM Tris-HCl and10% glycerol.
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please avoid freeze thaw cycles.
