|Recombinant Human Interleukin-7/IL-7|
|Description||Recombinant Human Interleukin-7/IL-7 is produced with our E. coli expression system. The target protein is expressed with sequence (Asp26-His177) of Human IL-7.|
|Names||Interleukin-7, IL-7, IL7|
|Formulation||Lyophilized from a 0.2 μM filtered solution of 20mM PB, 250mM NaCl, pH 7.2|
|Shipping||The product is shipped at ambient temperature.|
|Reconstitution||Always centrifuge tubes before opening. Do not mix by vortex or pipetting.|
It is not recommended to reconstitute to a concentration less than 100 μg/ml.
Dissolve the lyophilized protein in 1X PBS.
Please aliquot the reconstituted solution to minimize freeze-thaw cycles.
|Storage||Lyophilized protein should be stored at < -20°C, though stable at room temperature for 3 weeks.|
Reconstituted protein solution can be stored at 4-7°C for 2-7 days.
Aliquots of reconstituted samples are stable at < -20°C for 3 months.
|Purity||Greater than 95% as determined by SEC-HPLC and reducing SDS-PAGE.|
|Endotoxin||Less than 0.1 ng/µg (1 IEU/µg).|

|Background||Human Interleukin 7 (IL-7) is a potent lymphoid cell growth factor stimulating the proliferation of lymphoid progenitors. IL7 can associate with the hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) to form a hybrid cytokine that functions as a pre-pro-B cell growth-stimulating factor. Human IL7 cDNA encodes a 177 amino acid precursor protein containing a 25 amino acid signal peptide and a 152 amino acid mature protein. Human and mouse IL7 share 65% sequence identity in the mature region and both exhibit cross-species activity. IL-7 signals via IL-7 receptor (IL7R) activating multiple pathways including JaK/STAT and PI3K/AKT, which regulate lymphocyte survival, glucose uptake, proliferation, and differentiation. IL-7 is also associated with cytoplasmic IL2-R gamma for signal transduction.|
