Optimized DNA sequence encoding Mouse Interleukin-2 mature chain was expressed in Escherichia Coli.

Molecular weight:
Native Mouse Interleukin-2, generated by the proteolytic removal of the signal peptide and propeptide, the molecule has a calculated molecular mass of approximately 17 kDa.

Recombinant IL-2 is a disulfide-linked monomeric protein consisting of 150 amino acid residue subunits, and migrates as an approximately 17 kDa protein under non-reducing and reducing conditions in SDS-PAGE.

>95%, as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC

Biological Activity:
The ED50 as determined by the dose dependent stimulation of murine CTLL-2 cells
is < 0.1 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 1 x 107 units/mg.

Endotoxin content was assayed using a LAL gel clot method.
Endotoxin level was found to be less than 0.1 ng/µg(1EU/µg).

Recombinant mouse IL-2 was lyophilized from 0.2 μm filtered PBS solution, pH 7.0.

A quick spin of the vial followed by reconstitution in distilled water to a concentration not less than 0.1 mg/mL. This solution can then be diluted into other buffers.

The lyophilized protein is stable for at least 2 years from date of receipt at -20° C.
Upon reconstitution, this cytokine can be stored in working aliquots at 2° - 8° C for one month, or at -20° C for six months, with a carrier protein without detectable loss of activity.

Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

IL2 is produced mainly by T- cells expressing the surface antigen CD4 following cell activation by mitogens or allogen. Interleukin-2 (IL-2) has multiple, sometimes opposing, functions during an inflammatory response. It is a potent inducer of T- cell proliferation and T- helper 1 (Th1) and Th2 effector T-cell differentiation and provides T cells with a long-lasting competitive advantage resulting in the optimal survival and function of memory cells. In a regulatory role, IL-2 is important for the development, survival, and function of regulatory T cells, it enhances Fas- mediated activation-induced cell death, and it inhibits the development of inflammatory Th17 cells. Thus, in its dual and contrasting functions, IL-2 contributes to both the induction and the termination of inflammatory immune responses.
