IL-4, Human

IL-4, Human

Biological Activity
IL-4, Human (Cat. No. Z02925) stimulates cell proliferation of R&D TF-1 cells. The ED50 for this effect is typically 0.05-0.25ng/mL.

IL-4, Human

ED₅₀< 0.25 ng/ml, measured in a cell proliferation assay using TF-1 human erythroleukemic cells, corresponding to a specific activity of >4 x 10⁶ units/mg

Synonyms IL-4, B cell growth factor-1 (BCGF-1), B cell stimulatory factor-1 (BSF-1), B cell differentiation factor (BCDF), T cell growth factor-2 (TCGF-2), Mast-cell growth factor-2 (MCGF-2)
Description Interleukin-4 (IL-4) is a pleiotropic cytokine regulates diverse T and B cell responses including cell proliferation, survival, and gene expression. It has important effects on the growth and differentiation of different immunologically competent cells. Interleukin-4 is produced by mast cells, T cells, and bone marrow stromal cells. IL-4 regulates the differentiation of native CD4+ T cells (Th0 cells) into helper Th2 cells, and regulates the immunoglobulin class switching to the IgG1 and IgE isotypes. IL-4 has numerous important biological functions including stimulating B-cells activation, T-cell proliferation and CD4+ T-cells differentiation to Th2 cells. It is a key regulator in hormone control and adaptive immunity[2]. IL-4 also plays a major role in inflammation response and wound repair via activation of macrophage into M2 cells. IL-4 is stabilized by three disulphide bonds forming a compact globular protein structure. Four alpha-helix bundle with left-handed twist is dominated half of the protein structure with 2 overhand connections and fall into a 2-stranded anti-parallel beta sheet.

Recombinant human IL-4 (rhIL-4) is a 129 amino acid protein expressed in mammalian CHO system. The approximate molecular weight is 15 kDa analyzed by non-reducing SDS-PAGE.
