Human Interleukin-11 Recombinant



SKU: RKP20809 Tags: , , , , ,


Optimized DNA sequence encoding Human Interleukin-11 mature chain was expressed in Escherichia Coli.
Molecular weight
Native human IL-11, generated by the proteolytic removal of the signal peptide and propeptide, the molecule has a calculated molecular mass of approximately 19 kDa. Recombinant IL-11 is a monomer protein consisting of 179 amino acid residue subunits, and migrates as an approximately 19 kDa protein under nreducing conditions in SDS-PAGE.
>97%, as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC
Biological Activity
The ED(50) was determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of the proliferation ofmurine T11 cells is ≤.0 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of ≥1 xunits/mg.
Protein Sequence
Endotoxin content was assayed using a LAL gel clot method. Endotoxin level was found to be less than 0.1 ng/µg(1EU/µg).
Recombinant Interleukin-11 was lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered PB solution in.5% glycine, pH.5.
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.
The lyophilized protein is stable for at least years from date of receipt at -20° C. Upon reconstitution, this cytokine can be stored in working aliquots at2° -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.

Cell culture

  • To elucidate the effect of exogenous IL-11 on the regulation of versican isoforms, we performed treatment assays with different concentrations of rhIL-11.
  • The gastric carcinoma cells were seeded at an equal density in cell culture flasks containing growth medium as described above.
  • After 24 h, triplicate samples of subconfluent cells were treated with four different concentrations (0, 20, 50, 100 and 200 ng/ml) of activated rhIL-11 protein and incubated for 24 h. The cells were harvested to prepare mNA and protein as described below.
  • In the time-point assays, the cells were treated with 100 ng/ml of rhIL-11 and harvested at three different time points: hours 24, 48 and 72.

Myeloid Immortalization Assay

  • We essentially followed the protocol developed by Modlich et al for the myeloid immortalization assay -) BM cells were isolated from 5 female C57BL6/J mice (6–8 weeks old ) using Lineage Cell Depletion Kit .
  • Lin BM cells were prestimulated for 2 days in’s Modified Dulbecco’s Medium containing 50 ng/ml recombinant murine stem cell factor, 100 ng/ml recombinant human Flt-3 ligand, 100 ng/ml recombinant human IL-11, 10 ng/ml recombinant murine IL-3 , 10% fetal calf serum, 1% penicillin/streptomycin, and 2 mmol/l glutamine (here after refer as I10-S3F11 medium) at a density of 5×105 cells/ml.
  • The cells were transduced on days 3, 4, 5, and 6 using 105 cells and an MOI of 10–30 per transduction.
  • For each vector or vector dose, three replicate transductions were performed in three different wells of a 24 well tissue culture plate and vector copy number for each…
