ACROBiosystems社 プロダクトリスト：Recombinant Protein
- ActiveMax Recombinant Human IL-4
|Characteristics||This protein carries no "tag". The protein has a calculated MW of 14.9 kDa. The protein migrates as 15 and 19 kDa under reducing (R) condition (SDS-PAGE) due to glycosylation.|
|Endotoxin Level||Less than 0.1 EU per μg by the LAL method.|
|Purity||>90% as determined by SDS-PAGE.|
|Description||Interleukin-4, is a cytokine that induces differentiation of naive helper T cells (Th0 cells to Th2 cells). In the presence of IL-4 and IL-13, cytokines that are produced in a Th-2 type response, particularly during allergy and parasitic infections, macrophages become differentially activated, And this cytokine is a ligand for interleukin 4 receptor. The interleukin 4 receptor also binds to IL13, which may contribute to many overlapping functions of this cytokine and IL13. STAT6, a signal transducer and activator of transcription, has been shown to play a central role in mediating the immune regulatory signal of this cytokine. Recently, researcher found that the cytokine IL-4 plays a key role in development of innate CD8+ T cells in the thymus of several gene-deficient mouse strains, including Itk, KLF2, CBP and Id3, without previous exposure to antigen.|
