Recombinant Murine IL-10

Product Details

Catalog Number: 210-10
Description:

IL-10 is an immunosuppressive cytokine produced by a variety of mammalian cell types including macrophages, monocytes, T cells, B cells and keratinocytes.  IL-10 inhibits the expression of proinflammatory cytokines such as IL-1 and TNF-α.  Like IL-4, IL-10 enhances humoral immune responses and attenuates cell-mediated immune reactions.  Human IL-10 is active on murine cells, but murine IL-10 is inactive on human cells.  Recombinant Murine IL-10 is an 18.7 kDa protein of 161 amino acid residues.
