Preparation and Storage

  • Stability and Storage

    Shipped at 4°C. After reconstitution store at -20ºC. Avoid freeze / thaw cycles.

    Note: Buffer prior to lyophilisation is water with trace amounts of 0.1% TCA

    This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.

  • Reconstitution
    Reconstitute with 50ul distilled water Care should be taken during reconstitution as the protein may appear as a film at the bottom of the vial. It is recommended that the vial is gently mixed after reconstitution.

  • Function
    Participates in at least several B-cell activation processes as well as of other cell types. It is a costimulator of DNA-synthesis. It induces the expression of class II MHC molecules on resting B-cells. It enhances both secretion and cell surface expression of IgE and IgG1. It also regulates the expression of the low affinity Fc receptor for IgE (CD23) on both lymphocytes and monocytes.
  • Involvement in disease
    Genetic variations in IL4 may be a cause of susceptibility to ischemic stroke (ISCHSTR) [MIM:601367]; also known as cerebrovascular accident or cerebral infarction. A stroke is an acute neurologic event leading to death of neural tissue of the brain and resulting in loss of motor, sensory and/or cognitive function. Ischemic strokes, resulting from vascular occlusion, is considered to be a highly complex disease consisting of a group of heterogeneous disorders with multiple genetic and environmental risk factors.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the IL-4/IL-13 family.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted.
  • Information by UniProt
