|A DNA sequence encoding the mouse IL4 (P07750) (Met 1-Ser140, Q136D, Y139D) was expressed with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.|
|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.
|> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE|
|1. Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. Immobilized mouse IL4-His (Cat:51084-M08B) at 10 μg/mL (100 μl/well) can bind rat IL4R-Fc (Cat:80198-R02H), The EC50 of rat IL4R-Fc (Cat:80198-R02H) is 0.12-0.29 μg/mL.|
2. Measured by its ability to inhibit mIL4 dependent proliferation of HT-2 cells. The ED50 for this effect is typically 2-10 ng/ml in the presence of 2 ng/ml Recombinant Mouse IL4.
|< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method|
|Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃|
|The recombinant mouse IL4 consists of 131 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 14.9 KDa. It migrates as an approximately 19 KDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions due to glycosylation.|
|Lyophilized from sterile 20mM Tris, 500mM NaCl, 10% glycerol, pH 8.5.|
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.
|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.|
|A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.|
Interleukin-4, also known as IL4, is a secreted protein which belongs to the IL-4 / IL-13 family. Interleukin-4 / IL4 has many biological roles, including the stimulation of activated B-cell and T-cell proliferation. It enhances both secretion and cell surface expression of IgE and IgG1. Interleukin-4 / IL4 also regulates the expression of the low affinity Fc receptor for IgE (CD23) on both lymphocytes and monocytes. Interleukin-4 is essential for the switching of B cells to IgE antibody production and for the maturation of T helper (Th) cells toward the Th2 phenotype. It participates in at least several B-cell activation processes as well as of other cell types. However, studies show that double mutant (Q116D, Y119D) of the murine IL4 protein (QY), both glutamine 116 and tyrosine 119, which binds to the IL4 receptor alpha, completely inhibites in a dose-dependent manner the IL4-induced proliferation of lipopolysaccharide-stimulated murine splenic B-cells, of the murine T cell line CTLL-2, and of the murine pre-B-cell line BA/F3. QY also inhibited the IL4-stimulated up-regulation of CD23 expression by lipopolysaccharide-stimulated murine splenic B-cells and abolished tyrosine phosphorylation of the transcription factor Stat6 and the tyrosine kinase Jak3 in IL4-stimulated BA/F3 cells.
