Recombinant mouse interleukin-3 (mIL-3) Ala27-Cys166 (Accession # NM_010556) was produced in E. coli at Cell Signaling Technology.
Recombinant mIL-3 does not have a Met on the amino terminus and has a calculated MW of 15,674. DTT-reduced protein migrates as a 16 kDa polypeptide and non-reduced protein migrates as a 14 kDa polypeptide due to intramolecular cystines. The expected amino-terminal ASISG of recombinant mIL-3 was verified by amino acid sequencing.
>98% as determined by SDS-PAGE of 6 μg reduced (+) and non-reduced (-) recombinant mIL-3. All lots are greater than 98% pure.
The bioactivity of recombinant mIL-3 was determined in MC/9 and BaF3 cell proliferation assays. The ED50 of each lot is between 2-50 pg/ml in MC/9 cells and 20-90 pg/mL in BaF3 cells.
The purity of recombinant mIL-3 was determined by SDS-PAGE of 6 µg reduced (+) and non-reduced (-) recombinant mIL-3 and staining overnight with Coomassie Blue.
The proliferation of BaF3 cells treated with increasing concentrations of mIL-3 was assessed. After 48 hour treatment with mIL-3, cells were incubated with a tetrazolium salt and the OD450 - OD650 was determined.
The proliferation of MC/9 cells treated with increasing concentrations of mIL-3 was assessed. After 72 hour treatment with mIL-3, cells were incubated with a tetrazolium salt and the OD450 - OD650 was determined.
Less than 0.01 ng endotoxin/1 μg mIL-3.
With carrier: Lyophilized from a 0.22 μm filtered solution of PBS, pH 7.2 containing 20 μg BSA per 1 μg mIL-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). IL-3 supports growth and differentiation and is used as a media additive to support culture of many cell types (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).
