Recombinant Rat IL-2 Protein Summary

Description
A single, non-glycosylated biologically active polypeptide chain corresponding to 135 residues of IL2.

Source: E. coli

Amino Acid Sequence: APTSSPAKET QQHLEQLLLD LQVLLRGIDN YKNLKLPMML TFKFYLPKQA TELKHLQCLE NELGALQRVL DLTQSKSFHL EDAGNFISNI RVTVVKLKGS ENKFECQFDD EPATVVEFLR RWIAICQSII STMTQ

Preparation
Method
Novus' biologically active proteins are stringently purified to provide only the safest and most highly effective proteins available. This protein was expressed in E. coli, purified by HPLC, QC tested by SDS-PAGE and Western Blot and validated on appropriate cell lines for bioactivity. All HPLC and bioactivity data is provided for your assurance.
Details of Functionality
IL2 Protein is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by a cell proliferation assay using murine CTLL-2 cells is less than 0.2 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 5.0 x 10^6 IU/mg.
Source
E. coli
Protein/Peptide Type
Biologically Active Protein
Gene
IL2
Purity
> 97 % pure by SDS-PAGE and HPLC
Endotoxin Note
Less than 1 EU/ug of endotoxin as determined by LAL method.

Applications/Dilutions

Theoretical MW
15.5 kDa.
Disclaimer note: The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.

Packaging, Storage & Formulations

Storage
Store at 4C after rehydration. For extended storage after rehydration, add an equal volume of glycerol and store at -20C. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Buffer
Lyophilized from a 0.2 um filtered concentrated sterile solution in 10 mM sodium citrate, pH 4.0.
Concentration
LYOPH
Purity
> 97 % pure by SDS-PAGE and HPLC
Reconstitution Instructions
Reconstitute with sterilized distilled water or 0.1% BSA aqueous buffer to a final concentration of 0.1 - 1.0 mg/ml.

Notes

This lyophilized preparation is stable at 2-8 degrees C, but should be kept at -20 degrees C for long term storage, preferably desiccated. Upon reconstitution, the preparation is most stable at -20 to -80 degrees C, and can be stored for one week at 2-8 degrees C. For maximal stability, apportion the reconstituted preparation into working aliquots and store at -20 degrees C to -80 degrees C. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

Background

IL-2 is a powerful immunoregulatory lymphokine produced by T-cells in response to antigenic or mitogenic stimulation. It is expressed by CD4+ and CD8+ T cells, gammadelta T cells, B cells, dendritic cells, and eosinophils. IL-2/IL-2R signaling is required for Tcell proliferation and other fundamental functions which are essential for the immune response. The receptor for IL-2 consists of three subunits (55 kDa IL2Ralpha, 75 kDa IL2Rbeta, 64 kDa common gamma chain gammac/IL2Rgamma) that are present on the cell surface in varying preformed complexes. Recombinant rat IL-2 is a 15.3 kDa protein containing 134 amino acid residues and it shares about 82 %, 66 %, 66 %, 60 % and 54 % amino acid sequence identity with mouse, human, rhesus macaque, pig and equus caballus IL- 2, respectively.
