|Description||IL-12 is a potent regulator of cell mediated immune responses and it induces IFN-γ production by NK and T cells. It is produced by activated monocytes/macrophage cells, B lymphocytes and connective tissue type mast cells. Among its biological activities IL-12 promotes the growth and activity of activated NK, CD4+ and CD8+ cells and induces the development of IFN-γ producing Th1 cells. Recombinant murine IL-12 is a 75.0 kDa heterodimeric glycoprotein consisting of disulfide-linked 35 kDa (p35) and 40 kDa (p40) subunits (506 total amino acid residues).|
|BiologicalActivity||Assay #1: The ED50 was determined by the stimulation of IFN-gamma production by murine splenocytes co-stimulated with IL-18 is < 0.1 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 1 x 107 units/mg.|
Assay #2: Determined by its ability to stimulate the proliferation of 2D6 cells. The expected ED50 is ≤0.1ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of ≥1 x 107 units/mg.
|Authenticity||Verified by N-terminal and Mass Spectrometry analyses (when applicable).|
|Endotoxin||Endotoxin level is <0.1 ng/ µg of protein (<1EU/ µg).|
|Protein Content||Verified by UV Spectroscopy and/or SDS-PAGE gel.|
|Precautions||Recombinant Murine IL-12 is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
