Interleukin-3 (IL-3) is a cytokine produced by activated T-cells and mast cells that is active on a broad range of hematopoietic cells and in the nervous system and appears to be important in several chronic inflammatory diseases. Recombinant Human IL-3 produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 133 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 15000 Dalton.
Sterile Filtered white lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Lyopohilized with no additives.
Centrifuge vial before opening. When reconstituting the product, gently pipet and wash down the sides of the vial to ensure full recovery of the protein into solution. It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized product with 20 mM Acetic acid at a concentration of 0.1 – 0.5 mg’s/ml, which can be further diluted into other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized product is very stable at -20 degrees. Reconstituted material should be aliquoted and frozen at -20.
Purity Greater than 95% as determined by:
Analysis by RP-HPLC.
Reducing and non-reducing SDS-PAGE.
Protein Content determined by:
UV spectroscopy at 280 nm.
Analysis by RP-HPLC calibrated against a known standard.
Quantitation on SDS-PAGE against a known standard.
Endotoxin level as measured by LAL is <0.01ng/ug or <0.1EU/ug.
Human IL-3 is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of TF-1 cells is less then 0.1 ng/ml.
