MACS GMP Recombinant Human IL-4

MACS GMP Recombinant Human IL-4

Interleukin 4 (IL-4) is an anti-inflammatory cytokine and is a key regulator in humoral and adaptive immunity. It has complex biological roles and promotes growth and differentiation of B cells and T cells, and cells of the monocytic lineage.
MACS GMP Recombinant Human IL-4 is designed for
ex vivo
cell culture processing. No animal- or human-derived materials were used for the manufacture of this product, unless otherwise stated in the respective Certificate of Origin. The product is lyophilized without carrier protein or preservatives.

Disclaimer

MACS GMP Products are for research use and
ex vivo
cell culture processing only, and are not intended for human
in vivo
applications. For regulatory status in the USA, please contact your local representative.

Background information

IL-4 is predominantly secreted by activated CD4
+
memory and effector T
H
2 cells, basophils, and mast cells. It promotes the proliferation and differentiation of B cells, as well as immunoglobulin isotype switching, and MHC class II antigen and low-affinity IgE receptor expression. Furthermore, IL-4 induces the differentiation of naive CD4
+
T cells into helper T
H
2 cells, while suppressing T
H
1 development, and promotes chemotaxis of mast cells and basophils.

Applications

MACS GMP Recombinant Human IL-4 can be used for a variety of applications, including the
ex vivo
generation of human dendritic cells from enriched CD14
+
monocyte populations.

Biological activity

  • The specific activity is determined by proliferation assay according to Kitamura
    et al.1
    using TF-1 cells provided by the German Resource Centre for Biological Material (DSMZ). The proliferation assay was calibrated with the international standard for human IL-4 (NIBSC code 88/656) provided by the National Institute for Biological Standards and Control.
