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
IL21 Protein is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by a cell proliferation assay using human N1186 cells is less than 50 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 2.0 x 10^4 IU/mg.
| Protein/Peptide Type
Biologically Active Protein
>95% pure by SDS-PAGE
Less than 1 EU/ug of endotoxin as determined by LAL method.
Packaging, Storage & Formulations
Store at 4C short term. Aliquot and store at -20C long term. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
>95% pure by SDS-PAGE
Reconstitute with sterilized distilled water or 0.1% BSA aqueous buffer to a final concentration of 0.1 - 1.0 mg/ml.
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.
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.
Alternate Names for Rat IL-21 Protein

- interleukin-21 isoform
Rat IL-21 is produced by CD4+ T cells in response to antigenic stimulation and can regulating immune system cells, for instance cytotoxic T cells and natural killer cells. The biological effects of IL-21 include induction of differentiation of T-cells-stimulated B-cells into plasma cells and memory B-cells, stimulation with IL-4 of IgG production, and induction of apoptotic effects in naive B-cells and stimulated B-cells in the absence of T-cell signaling. Additionally, it promotes the anti-tumor activity of CD8+ T-cells and NK cells. IL-21 elicits its effect through binding to IL-21R, which also contains the gamma chain found in other cytokine receptors such as IL-2, IL-4, IL-7, IL-9 and IL-15. IL-21 shows having much relation with clinical illnesses, including cancer immunotherapy, viral infections and allergies. Mature rat IL-21 shares 88 % a.a. sequence identity with mouse IL-21.
