Recombinant Human Interleukin-24 (IL24)
Description IL-24 (melanoma differentiation-associated gene-7 [mda-7]), a member of the IL-10 cytokine family, possesses the properties of a classical cytokine as well as tumor suppressor effects. The exact role of IL-24 in the immune system has not been defined but studies have indicated a role for IL-24 in inflammatory conditions such as psoriasis. The tumor suppressor effects of IL-24 include inhibition of angiogenesis, sensitization to chemotherapy, and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK)-mediated apoptosis. Current knowledge on the regulation of IL-24 expression is sparse. The melanoma differentiation- associated gene-7 (mda-7) was discovered through subtraction hybridization of cDNA libraries prepared from melanoma cells. As mda-7 shares considerable structural and sequence homology with IL-10 cytokine family members it was recognized as a member of this family and renamed interleukin-24 (IL-24). IL-24 signals through a heterodimeric receptor complex consisting of the IL-20R-beta subunit together with either the IL-20R-alpha subunit or the IL-22R-alpha subunit. The IL-20R-alpha/IL-20R-beta complex is shared with IL-19 and IL-20 whereas the IL-22R-alpha/IL-20R-beta complex is shared with only IL-20. Binding of IL-24 as well as IL-19 and IL-20 to the receptor complexes results in signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3)-activation.
Gene Symbol IL24
Gene ID 11009
Accession No. Q13007
Source CHO cells
Appearance Lyophilized Powder
Molecular Weight 18.5 kDa
Endotoxin Level <1.0 EU/μg of recombinant protein as determined by the LAL method.
Purity >95% as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bioactivity Activity was determined by the ability to inhibit growth of human A549 cancer cells at concentrations ranging between 50-100 ng/mL.
Formulation Recombinant Interleukin-24 was lyophilized from 0.2μm filtered solution in PBS, pH 7.4 including 5% (w/v) trehalose.
Reconstitution A quick spin of the vial followed by reconstitution in distilled water to a concentration not less than 0.1 mg/mL. This solution can then be diluted into other buffers.
Storage Upon reconstitution, this cytokine can be stored in working aliquots at 2° - 8°C for one month, or at -20°C for six months, with a carrier protein without detectable loss of activity. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
Usage For research use only. Not for diagnostic or therapeutic use.

Submit a new question:
How are endotoxin levels measured?
1. For estimating the endotoxin levels; we use the LAL (Limulus Amebocyte Lysate) method: The lysate from horseshoe crab amebocytes clots in the presence of very low endotoxin. This reaction is the basis of the Limulus amebocyte lysate (LAL) assay which was approved by the FDA in 1970.

· Endotoxin is generally measured in Endotoxin Units per milliliter (EU/mL).

· For recombinant proteins: EU is reported per microgram of protein.

· One EU = 0.1-0.2 ng endotoxin/µg of protein.

· At abm, we do the LAL chromogenic assays that can detect down to 0.01 EU/ml.
With regard to the BSA levels in some Growth Factors and Cytokines, can you please provide an explanation as to why they are so high?
The amount of BSA, as part of the formulation of a protein, can vary considerably depending on how much BSA was deemed optimum/necessary for protein stability in combination with /in-lieu of - other possible additives. The aforementioned formulations are somewhat analogous to the “carrier” versions of many formulations from “R and D systems” that have as high as 50 µg of BSA per µg of the recombinant protein product. If, needed or desired, abm scientists can substitute BSA for other stabilizing additives for most formulations.
Are your Escherichia coli sourced growth factors: 1) Human derived materials free? 2) Recombinant proteins free?
Yes, all of abm's growth factors made in Escherichia coli using recombinant technology contain no human derived-products or other recombinant proteins. In the rare cases of BSA presence, this will be mentioned in the product's formulation.
