Interleukin-12 (IL-12) is an important mediator of cellular-immunity produced by dendritic cells, macrophages and B cells when stimulated with antigen. IL-12 is involved in differentiating precursor helper T cells to Th1 and/or Th2 subtypes and promotes the production of IFN gamma and TNF alpha. Mouse IL-12 is active on human and mouse cells.

Source:
Recombinant protein corresponding to 506aa mouse IL-12 expressed in HEK 293 cells.

Molecular Weight:
~70kD

Endotoxin:
1EU/ug (LAL)

Biological Activity:
The activity is determined by the induced expression of CD25 on CD8+ mouse T cells and is typically detectable starting at 0.1ng/ml.
