Recombinant Human IL-20 is a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 153 amino acids.
Background: Interleukin-20 (IL-20) is a member of the IL-10 family of regulatory cytokines which includes IL-10, IL-19, IL-20, IL-22, IL-24 and IL-26. Members of this family share partial homology in their amino acid sequences but they are dissimilar in their biological functions. IL-20 is a hematopoietic growth factor capable of stimulating colony formation by CD34+ multipotential progenitors, but not by other progenitor cells. IL-20 signals through a receptor system composed of type I IL-20R-α and type II IL-20R-β. Over-expression of IL-20 in keratinocytes expressing both receptor subunits has been implicated in the induction of inflammatory
Lyophilized from a 0.2 µm filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.2, with trehalose.
>95 % by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses.
Fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by a cell proliferation assay using human IL-20Rα and human IL-20Rβ co-transfected mouse BaF3 pro-B cells is less than 0.5 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 2.0 × 106 IU/mg.
Less than 1EU/μg of rHuIL-20 as determined by LAL method.

Centrifuge vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in sterile distilled water or aqueous buffer containing a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. Stock solutions should be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at <-20°C. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.
This lyophilized preparation is stable at 2-8°C, but should be kept at -20°C for long term storage, preferably desiccated. Upon reconstitution, the preparation is stable for up to one week at 2-8°C. For maximal stability, apportion the reconstituted preparation into working aliquots and store at -20°C to -80°C. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
