Source / Purification

Recombinant human interleukin-3 (hIL-3) Ala20-Phe152 (Accession # NP_000579) was expressed in human 293 cells at Cell Signaling Technology.

Product Description

Purity:

>98% as determined by SDS-PAGE of 6 μg reduced (+) and non-reduced (-) recombinant hIL-3. All lots are greater than 98% pure.


Molecular Formula:

Recombinant hIL-3 contains no "tags" and the nonglycosylated protein has a calculated MW of 15,091. DTT-reduced and non-reduced protein migrate as 26 kDa polypeptides. Lower mobility and heterogeneity in SDS PAGE are due to glycosylation. The expected amino-terminal APMTQ of recombinant hIL-3 was verified by amino acid sequencing.


Bioactivity:

The bioactivity of recombinant hIL-3 was determined in a TF-1 cell proliferation assay. The ED50 of each lot is between 50 -400 pg/ml.


Endotoxin:

Less than 0.01 ng endotoxin/1 μg hIL-3.


Product Usage Information

Formulation:

With carrier: Lyophilized from a 0.22 μm filtered solution of PBS, pH 7.2 containing 20 μg BSA per 1 μg hIL-3. Carrier free: Lyophilized from a 0.22 μm filtered solution of PBS, pH 7.2.


Storage: Stable in lyophilized state at 4°C for 1 year after receipt. Sterile stock solutions reconstituted with carrier protein are stable at 4°C for 2 months and at -20°C for 6 months. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.Maintain sterility. Storage at -20°C should be in a manual defrost freezer.

IL-3 is produced by T cells, mast cells and eosinophils (1). Target cells include hematopoietic progenitors, neutrophils, macrophages, mast cells, eosinophils, lymphoid and erythroid cells (1). The IL-3 receptor is a heterodimer of the IL-3 specific α-chain and the common β-chain, βc, which is also used by GM-CSF and IL-5. (1). Binding of IL-3 can also involve substitution of the βc by a βIL-3-chain that appears to be specific for IL-3 (1,2). Binding of IL-3 to its cognate receptor(s) induces activation of Jak2, phosphorylation of multiple Stats (1,3,5,6), and the PI3K/Akt pathway (1). IL-3 may play an important role in the development of airway inflammation associated with asthma (3,4,5).
