MACS GMP Recombinant Human IL-7

Interleukin 7 (IL-7) is a pleiotropic cytokine with central roles in modulating T cell development and peripheral T cell homeostasis. IL-7 can act both as a T cell growth factor as well as a critical anti-apoptotic survival factor for naive and memory T cells.

Background information

The primary sources of IL-7 are non-hematopoietic stromal cells in bone marrow, thymus, and lymphoid organs and tissues. IL-7 is a member of the type I cytokine family. It is related to IL-2 and signals through a heterodimeric receptor composed of the common cytokine signaling γ-chain and IL-7 receptor α-chain.


MACS GMP Recombinant Human IL-7 can be used for a variety of applications, including the
ex vivo
generation of antigen-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes.
