Tech Info / Data

11604 Purity Confirmation on SDS-PAGE

Recombinant human interleukin 4 (IL-4), expressed in engineered human cells, is produced by a number of hematopoietic cell types such as Th2, NK-T, CD3+, as well as basophils, eosinophils and mast cells. Human IL-4 is important in several B-cell and T-cell actiation pathways such as differentiation and proliferation. IL-4 aids antigen presentation on B cells by increasing expression of class II MHC and is implicated in isotype switching of immunoglobulins. Secretion and cell surface expression of IgE and IgG1 and B-cells is enhanced by IL-4. IL-4 inhibits the production of inflammatory cytokines such TNF-alpha and IL-1 and prevents the growth of some cancers.
