Tech Info / Data

11602 Purity Confirmation on SDS-PAGE

Recombinant human interleukin 2 (IL-2), expressed in engineered human cells, is produced primarily by activated CD4+ T cells but is also expressed by naive CD8+ T cells, eosinophils, dendritic and thymic cells. IL-2 is an essential activator of the immune response and is required for the growth of T cells, activated B cells and T helper cell differentiation. IL-2 also stimulates the activity of NK cells and is involved in anti-inflammatory reactions and in hematopoiesis.
