NKSF2, CTL maturation factor (TCMF), Cytotoxic lymphocyte maturation factor 40 kDa subunit (CLMF p40), TSF, Edodekin-alpha, IL-12 p40, IL-12B, IL-12 subunit p40, NK cell stimulatory factor chain 2.
Active IL-12 is a p70 disulphide-linked dimer composed of p35 and p40 subunits. The protein is a pleiotropic cytokine produced primarily by antigen presenting cells and has multiple effects on T lymphocytes and natural killer cells in terms of stimulating cytotoxicity, proliferation, production of other cytokines and Th1 subset differentiation.
Interleukin-12 p40 His Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is single, a non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 306 amino acids fragment (23-328) with an amino-terminal hexahistidine tag.
The IL-12 p40 His is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered clear solution.
Interleukin-12 p40 His is supplied in 20mM Tris HCL pH=8 and 50% glycerol.
