GeneID 116562
Summary IL-2 is a powerful immunoregulatory lymphokine produced by T-cells in response to antigenic or mitogenic stimulation. It is expressed by CD4+ and CD8+ T cells, gammadelta T cells, B cells, dendritic cells, and eosinophils. IL-2/IL-2R signaling is required for T-cell proliferation and other fundamental functions which are essential for the immune response. The receptor for IL-2 consists of three subunits (55 kDa IL2Ralpha, 75 kDa IL2Rβ, 64 kDa common gamma chain gammac/IL2Rgamma) that are present on the cell surface in varying preformed complexes. Recombinant rat IL-2 is a 15.3 kDa protein containing 134 amino acid residues and it shares about 82 %, 66 %, 66 %, 60 % and 54 % amino acid sequence identity with mouse, human, rhesus macaque, pig and equus caballus IL-2, respectively.
Source Escherichia coli.
Molecular Weight Approximately 15.5 kDa, a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 135 amino acids.
Biological Activity Fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by a cell proliferation assay using murine CTLL-2 cells is less than 0.2 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 5.0 × 106 IU/mg.
Appearance Sterile filtered white lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Formulation A 0.2 um filtered concentrated sterile solution in 10 mM sodium citrate, pH 4.0.
Endotoxin Less than 1 EU/ug of rRtIL-2 as determined by LAL method.
Reconstitution We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute in sterile distilled water or aqueous buffer containing 0.1 % BSA to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Stock solutions should be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at ≤ -20 °C. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.
Stability and Storage Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.- 12 months from date of receipt, -20 to -70 °C as supplied.- 1 month, 2 to 8 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.- 3 months, -20 to -70 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.
