DatasheetSpecific ReferencesReviewsRelated ProductsProtocols
IL27RaProtein Product Information
Synonym:IL27RA, CRL1, IL27R, TCCR, WSX1, zcytor1
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain (Met 1-Arg 514) of human IL27Rα (NP_004834.1) was fused with the Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus.
Expressed Host:Human Cells
Form & Shipping:In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
IL27RaProtein QC Testing
Purity:> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA . Immobilized human IL27 at 20 μg/ml (100 μl/well) can bind human IL27Ra with a linear ranger of 0.064-1.6 μg/ml.
Endotoxin:< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:Gln 33
Molecule Mass:The recombinant human IL27Rα/Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimeric protein after removal of the signal peptide. The reduced monomer consists of 722 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 79 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, rh IL27Rα/Fc monomer migrates as an approximately 105-115 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4, 8% trehalose, 8% mannitol
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
IL27RaProtein Usage Guide
Storage:Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Reconstitution:A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

The interleukin-27 receptor is a type I cytokine receptor for interleukin-27. It is a heterodimer composed of the interleukin 27 receptor, alpha subunit and glycoprotein 130. WSX-1/IL-27R, a class I cytokine receptor that is homologous to the β2 chain of the IL-12R in both sequence and structure, is highly expressed by resting/naive CD4+ T cells and CD8+ T cells. WSX-1/IL-27R belongs to the IL-6/IL-12 family of cytokines and induced proliferation of naive CD4(+) T cells and the generation of a Th1-type adaptive immune response. WSX-1/IL-27R functions as a receptor for IL27. IL-27 not only contributes to the development of an adaptive immune response through its action on CD4(+) T cells, it also directly acts on cells of the innate immune system. WSX-1/IL-27R requires IL6ST/gp130 to mediate signal transduction in response to IL27. This signaling system acts through STAT3 and STAT1. It is involved in the regulation of Th1-type immune responses. IL-27R also appears to be involved in innate defense mechanisms. IL27RA is essential for transcriptional activation of STAT1 and for augmenting the induction of T-bet expression during initiation of Th1 cell differentiation.
