Product Name: Human CellExp™ IL-17E, human recombinant
Alternate Name/Synonyms: IL-17E, IL-25, Interleukin-25
Gene Symbol: IL-17E
Accession #: Q9H293
Gene ID: 64806
Source: HEK 293 cells
Appearance: Lyophilized powder
Physical Form Description: Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in PBS. Generally 5-8% Mannitol or trehalose is added as a protectant before lyophilization.
Molecular Weight: This protein is fused with 6 × His tag at the C-terminus, has a calculated MW of 16.7 kDa. The predicted N-terminus is Tyr 33. DTT-reduced Protein migrates as 24 kDa, 27 kDa and 31 kDa due to different glycosylation.
Purity by SDS-PAGE: ≥95%
Purity by HPLC: N/A
Endotoxin Level: < 0.1 ng/μg of protein (<1EU/μg).
Biological Activity: The activity is determined by the dose-dependent production of IL-8 by human PBMCs. The expected ED50 for this effect is 12-25 ng/ml.
Reconstitution Instructions: Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in sterile PBS, pH 7.4 to a concentration of 50 µg/ml. Do not vortex. This solution can be stored at 2-8°C for up to 1 month. For extended storage, it is recommended to store at -20°C.
Storage Temp.: -20°C
Shipping: Gel pack
Background Information: Interleukin 25 (IL25) also known as Interleukin-17E (IL-17E), is a distinct member of the IL17 cytokine family comprised of at least six members sharing a conserved cysteine-knot structure but divergent at the N-terminus. IL-25 is secreted by type 2 helper T cells (Th2) and mast cells. IL25 can induce NF-κB activation, and stimulate the production of IL8. Both this cytokine and IL17B are ligands for the cytokine receptor IL17RB. IL-25 induces the production of other cytokines, including IL-4, IL-5 and IL-13 in multiple tissues, which stimulate the expansion of eosinophils. This cytokine is an important molecule controlling immunity of the gut and has been implicated in chronic inflammation associated with the gastrointestinal tract. IL-25 can kill some types of breast cancer cells.
