Animal-Free Cytokines

Animal-Free Recombinant Murine IL-2

Product Details

Catalogue Number: AF-212-12
Description:

IL-2 is a powerful immunoregulatory lymphokine produced by T-cells in response to antigenic or mitogenic stimulation.  IL-2/IL-2R signaling is required for T-cell proliferation and other fundamental functions that are essential for the immune response.  IL-2 stimulates growth and differentiation of B-cells, NK cells, lymphokine-activated killer cells, monocytes, macrophages and oligodendrocytes.  Recombinant Murine IL-2 is a 17.2 kDa protein containing 148 amino acid residues.

Manufactured using all Animal-Free reagents.

Source: E.coli

Synonyms: T-cell growth factor, (TCGF), Aldesleukin
