IL-10, IL10, CSIF, Il10
Recombinant Mouse interleukin-10 is a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 160 amino acids.
Background: IL-10 is an immunosuppressive cytokine produced by a variety of mammalian cell types including macrophages, monocytes, T cells, B cells and keratinocytes. IL-10 inhibits the expression of proinflammatory cytokines such as IL-1 and TNFα. Like IL-4, IL-10 enhances humoral immune responses and attenuates cell-mediated immune reactions. Human IL-10 is active on murine cells, but murine IL-10 is inactive on human cells.
Lyophilized from a 0.2 µm sterile filtered solution of PBS pH 7.4.
>97% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses.
Fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by a cell proliferation assay using murine MC/9-2 cells is less than 1 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 1.0 × 106 IU/mg.
Less than 1EU/μg of rMuIL-10 as determined by LAL method.

Centrifuge vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in 10 mM HCl to 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.
Stable at 2-8°C, but best kept desiccated -20°C. Upon reconstitution, stable for up to 1 week at 2-8°C. For longer term, store in working aliquots below -20°C. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
