Epstein-Barr Virus Induced Gene-3 (EBI-3) is a secreted glycoprotein belonging to the hematopoietin receptor family and related to the p40 subunit of IL-12. It was identified by its induced expression in B-lymphocytes in response to Epstein-Barr virus infection. EBI-3 forms heterodimers with p28 to form IL-27 and with p35 to form IL-35. Both IL-27 and IL-35 have anti-inflammatory and regulatory activity. Recombinant Human EBI-3 is a non-glycosylated polypeptide chain.
Peptides & proteins
Produced using animal free raw components and processes, in a non-mammalian system. Ideal for researchers concerned about the risks and effects of contaminating viruses, prions and trace growth factors from FBS and animal-derived ingredients used in standard recombinant protein production techniques. Endotoxin levels are less than 1.0 EU per ug protein via LAL. Bioactivity is comparable to recombinant protein produced in traditional techniques.
