Recombinant Murine IL-5

Product Details

Catalog Number: 215-15
Description:

IL-5 is a hematopoietic growth factor that stimulates the proliferation and activation of eosinophils. Produced by mast cells, T cells, and eosinophils, IL-5 plays an important role in inducing cell-mediated immunity against parasitic infections and certain tumors. Elevated levels of IL-5 lead to Eosinophilia, which may result in the induction of asthma and other allergic diseases. Human and murine IL-5 is cross-species reactive. Recombinant Murine IL-5 is a 26.2 kDa disulfide-linked homodimeric protein containing two 113 amino acid chains.
