Mouse IL-7

Mouse IL-7

IL-7 stands for interleukin 7. Mouse IL-7 is a recombinant protein optimized for use in cell culture, differentiation studies, and functional assays.

Applications

Mouse IL-7 may be used for a variety of applications, including:
  • In vitro T cell expansion, for example, of naive T cells.
  • In vitro differentiation of T cells, for example, of iNKT cells.
  • Investigation of IL-7 mediated signaling pathways.

Background information

Interleukin 7 (IL-7) is a member of the type I cytokine family. The primary sources of IL-7 are non-hematopoietic stromal cells in bone marrow, thymus, and lymphoid organs and tissues. It is a pleiotropic cytokine with central roles in modulating T cell and B 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. IL-7 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.

Quality description

Research-grade
cytokines are suitable for a wide variety of cell culture applications. They are sterile-filtered prior to lyophilization. Generally, endotoxin levels are <0.1 ng/μg (<1 EU/μg), and purities are >95%. The biological activity is tested in appropriate bioassays.
