IL-3 (Interleukin-3, Hematopoietic growth factor, Mast cell growth factor), a pleiotropic growth factor, is mainly produced by activated T-cells, but is also produced by keratinocytes, NK-cells, mast cells, endothelial cells, and monocytes. IL-3 promotes proliferation and differentiation of various hematopoietic cell types, including pluripotent stem cells and more committed progenitors. IL-3 also affects activity of mature hematopoietic cells and often functions in combination with other cytokines. Human IL-3 is species-specific and shows no biological activity on murine cells. Recombinant human IL-3 is a 17 kDa globular protein consisting of 133 amino acid residues.
Produced in the endosperm tissue of barley grain (Hordeum vulgare).
PBS pH 7.2, sterile filtered through 0.2 µm filter.
Greater than 95% by SDS-PAGE gel analysis.
Note: Always centrifuge the vial before opening. It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized protein in sterile buffered saline to a concentration of no less than 100 µg/ml. For long term storage of the reconstituted solution it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
The lyophilized protein, though stable at room temperature for few weeks, is best stored at -20°C. Reconstituted protein should be used immediately or stored in working aliquots at -20°C. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Each batch of ISOkine growth factor is tested for bioactivity and verified to have comparable activity to a commercial source. The bioactivity of ISOkine recombinant human IL-3 was determined by its dose-dependent effects on the proliferation of TF-1 cells. The ED50 value for this effect is typically < 0.2 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 5 x 10e6 units/mg. Optimal concentration should be determined for specific applications and cell lines
Endotoxin level is less than 0.005ng per µg of ISOkine product (0.05EU/µg).
Purified ISOkine product carries no pyrogenic or pro-inflammatory contaminants, as assayed with monocyte activation test using Human 10-plex Cytokine Assay measuring IL-6, TNF-alpha and IL-1 beta induction. ** Ref. The Blood Bank, University Hospital of Iceland, Reykjavik, Iceland
Recombinant human IL-3 contains 133 amino acids and a 16 a.a. histidine-based tag for a total length of 149 a.a. and has a predicted molecular mass of 17.2 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, the recombinant protein migrates with an apparent molecular mass of 20-23 kDa in SDS-PAGE
