ReconstitutionReconstitute with sterile phosphate-buffered saline containing at least 0.1% carrier protein.
Reconstituted protein is stable for at least 3 months when stored in working aliquots with a carrier protein at -20°C. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

JKA3 induced upon T cell activation
FunctionAssociates with IL12B to form the IL-23 interleukin, an heterodimeric cytokine which functions in innate and adaptive immunity. IL-23 may constitute with IL-17 an acute response to infection in peripheral tissues. IL-23 binds to an heterodimeric receptor complex composed of IL12RB1 and IL23R, activates the Jak-Stat signaling cascade, stimulates memory rather than naive T-cells and promotes production of proinflammatory cytokines. IL-23 induces autoimmune inflammation and thus may be responsible for autoimmune inflammatory diseases and may be important for tumorigenesis.
Tissue specificitySecreted by activated dendritic and phagocytic cells and keratinocytes. Also expressed by dermal Langerhans cells (at protein level).
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the IL-6 superfamily.
Developmental stageExpressed by newborns dendritic cells.
Cellular localizationSecreted. Secreted upon association with IL12B.
