Epstein-Barr Virus Induced Gene-3 (EBI-3), is a secreted glycoprotein belonging to the hematopoietin receptor family and related to the p40 subunit of IL-12. It was identified by its induced expression in B-lymphocytes in response to Epstein-Barr virus infection. EBI-3 forms heterodimers with p28 to form IL-27 and with p35 to form IL-35. Both IL-27 and IL-35 have anti-inflammatory and regulatory activity. Recombinant Human EBI is a non-glycosylated polypeptide chain consisting of 209 amino acids with a molecular weight of 23.3 kDa.
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 sterile water at a concentration of 0.1 – 0.5 mg/ml, which can be further diluted into other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized product is very stable at -20°C. Reconstituted material should be aliquoted and frozen at -20°C. It is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA) for long term storage.
Purity Greater than 90% as determined by:
Reducing and non-reducing SDS-PAGE.
Protein Content determined by:
UV spectroscopy at 280 nm.
Quantitation on SDS-PAGE against a known standard.
Assay data for Human recombinant EBI-3 is based upon qualitative binding to anti-EBI-3 antibody.
Endotoxin level as measured by LAL is <0.01ng/ug or <0.1EU/ug.
