IL-20, Human

Synonyms Interleukin-20 (IL-20), Human;
Description IL-20 is a member of the IL-10 family of regulatory cytokines which includes IL-10, IL-19, IL-20, IL-22, IL-24 and IL-26. Members of this family share partial homology in their amino acid sequences but they are dissimilar in their biological functions. IL-20 is a hematopoietic growth factor capable of stimulating colony formation by CD34+ multipotential progenitors, but not by other progenitor cells. IL-20 signals through a receptor system composed of type I IL-20R-ª and type II IL-20R-ß. Over-expression of IL-20 in keratinocytes expressing both receptor subunits has been implicated in the induction of inflammatory skin disease.
Species Human
Source E. coli
Specific Activity Fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by a cell proliferation assay using human IL-20Rα and human IL-20Rβ co-transfected murine BaF3 pro-B cells is less than 0.5 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 2.0 × 106 IU/mg.

Measured Molecular Weight Approximately 17.6 kDa, a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 153 amino acids.
Purity > 95 % by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses.
Formulation Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.2, with trehalose.
Reconstitution We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute in sterile distilled water or aqueous buffer containing 0.1 % BSA to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. Stock solutions should be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at ≤ -20 °C. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.
Endotoxin Level Less than 1 EU/μg of rHuIL-20 as determined by LAL method.
Physical Appearance Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Usage This material is for research, laboratory or further evaluation purposes. NOT FOR HUMAN USE.
Storage This lyophilized preparation is stable at 2-8 °C, but should be kept at -20 °C for long term storage, preferably desiccated. Upon reconstitution, the preparation is stable for up to one week at 2-8 °C. For maximal stability, apportion the reconstituted preparation into working aliquots and store at -20 °C to -70 °C. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
