IL-5 (AF)

Interleukin-5 (IL-5) is a hematopoietic growth factor expressed in Th2, mast cells and eosinophils. IL-5 acts through its receptor, the IL-5 receptor (IL-5R) and is involved in B cell growth and eosinophil activation. Human and mouse IL-5 are cross-reactive. Recombinant human IL-5 is a non-glycosilated homodimer containing two 116 amino acid chains and with a molecular weight of 26.6 kDa.

Product Type:
Peptides & proteins
Alternative Names:
B-cell differentiation factor I, Eosinophil differentiation factor, TFR
Storage Temp:
Limit of Detection:
26.6 kDa
PURITY (MIN.): ≥95
Additional Information:
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.
