The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Biological activityThe ED50 as determined by the induction of IFN-γ production from murine splenocytes co-stimulated with IL-12 is <0.1 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 1 x 107 units/mg.
Additional notesThe lyophilized human IL-12 is best-stored desiccated below 0oC. Reconstituted IL-12 should be stored at working aliquots at -20oC.
This solution can then be diluted into other aqueous buffers and stored at 4oC for 1 week or –20oC for future use.

This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.
ReconstitutionCentrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in 1X PBS (pH 7.2-7.4) to a concentration of 0.2 mg/ml.
FunctionCytokine that can act as a growth factor for activated T and NK cells, enhance the lytic activity of NK/lymphokine-activated Killer cells, and stimulate the production of IFN-gamma by resting PBMC.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the IL-6 superfamily.
