Recombinant human interleukin-3 (hIL-3) Ala20-Phe152 (Accession # NP_000579) was expressed in human 293 cells at Cell Signaling Technology.
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.
>98% as determined by SDS-PAGE of 6 μg reduced (+) and non-reduced (-) recombinant hIL-3. All lots are greater than 98% pure.
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.
The purity of recombinant hIL-3 was determined by SDS-PAGE of 6 µg reduced (+) and non-reduced (-) recombinant hIL-3 and staining overnight with Coomassie Blue.
The proliferation of TF-1 cells treated with increasing concentrations of hIL-3 was assessed. After 48 hour treatment with hIL-3, cells were incubated with a tetrazolium salt and the OD450 - OD650 was determined.
Western blot analysis of extracts from TF-1 cells untreated or treated with hIL-3 for 15 minutes, using Phospho-Stat5 (Tyr694) (C11C5) Rabbit mAb #9359 (upper) and Stat5 (3H7) Rabbit mAb #9358 (lower).
Less than 0.01 ng endotoxin/1 μg hIL-3.
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.
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).
