Recombinant Human IL-12B & IL-12A heterodimer protein (Human IL-12B & IL-12A heterodimer) Ile 23 - Ser 328 (IL-12B, AAH67499) and Arg 23 - Ser 219 (IL-12A, P29459) was produced in human 293 cells (HEK293) at ACROBiosystems.
Predicted N-terminus: Ile 23 (IL12B) and Arg 23 (IL12A)
The protein contains two subunits. Subunit IL-12B is fused with his tag at the C-terminus and subunit IL-12A is fused with flag tag at the C-terminus.
The protein has a calculated MW of 36.6 kDa (IL12B) and 23.8 kDa (IL12A). The protein migrates as 33-47 kDa under reducing (R) condition (SDS-PAGE) due to glycosylation.
Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.
>95% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in PBS, pH7.4. Normally trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.

Human IL-12B & IL-12A, His Tag & Flag Tag on SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) condition. The gel was stained overnight with Coomassie Blue. The purity of the protein is greater than 95%.
Interleukin 12 (IL12) is also known as p70, and is an interleukin that is naturally produced by dendritic cells, macrophages and human B-lymphoblastoid cells (NC-37) in response to antigenic stimulation.IL12 is a heterodimeric cytokine, containing IL-12A (p35) and IL-12B (p40). IL-12 is involved in the differentiation of naive T cells into Th1 cells. It is known as a T cell-stimulating factor, which can stimulate the growth and function of T cells. It stimulates the production of IFN-γ and TNF-α from T cells and NK cells, and reduces IL-4 mediated suppression of IFN-γ. IL-12 plays an important role in the activities of natural killer cells and T lymphocytes. IL-12 also has anti-angiogenic activity, which means it can block the formation of new blood vessels.
