Overview

Interleukin 12 (IL-12p70) is a heterodimeric cytokine composed of p35 and p40 subunits. IL-12 is produced by monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, neutrophils and B cells in response to bacterial products and cytokines such as IFN-γ. The IL-12 receptor is expressed on T, NK, and dendritic cells. Upon binding, IL-12 initiates signaling via the JAK/STAT signaling pathway and stimulates NK, B, and T cells to produce IFN-γ (Watford et al.). It also regulates cytokine synthesis, proliferation of T and NK cells, and stimulates differentiation of CD4+ and CD8+ T cells (Germann & Rüde). Mice that are deficient in IL-12 are susceptible to many intracellular pathogens and have impaired IFN-γ secretion, Th1 differentiation and NK cytolytic activity; however, Th2 development and IL-4 production are enhanced (Watford et al.).

Data and Publications

Data

(A) The biological activity of Mouse Recombinant IL-12 was tested by its ability to induce CD25 expression on mouse spleen CD8+ T cells. Expression of CD25 on CD8+ T cells was measured after 72 hours of culture using a fluorometric assay method. The EC50 is defined as the effective concentration of the growth factor at which expression of CD25 is at 50% of maximum. The EC50 in the above example is 1 - 1.8 ng/mL.
(B) 1 ug of Mouse Recombinant IL-12 was resolved with SDS-Page under reducing (+) non-reducing (-) conditions and visualized by Coomassie Blue staining. Mouse Recombinant IL-12 is a heterodimer comprised of one p40 subunit and one p35 subunit. The total predicted molecular mass is 57.5 kDa but migrates to an apparent molecular mass of 70 kDa.
