Recombinant Human IL-20

Product Details

Catalog Number: 200-20
Description:

IL-20 is a member of the IL-10 family of regulatory cytokines, which includes IL-10, IL-19, IL-20, IL-22, IL-24 and IL-26. Members of this family share partial homology in their amino acid sequences, but they are dissimilar in their biological functions. IL-20 is a hematopoietic growth factor capable of stimulating colony formation by CD34+ multipotential progenitors, but not by other progenitor cells. IL-20 signals through a receptor system composed of type I IL-20Rα and type II IL-20Rβ. Over-expression of IL-20 in keratinocytes expressing both receptor subunits has been implicated in the induction of inflammatory skin disease. Recombinant Human IL-20 is a 35.2 kDa homodimeric protein consisting of two 153 amino acid polypeptide chains.
