Cell Signaling Technology Human Interleukin-2 (hIL-2) 10 ug
Manufacturer: Cell Signaling Technology 8907SF
8907SF , IL-2 is a T cell stimulatory cytokine best known for inducing T cell proliferation and NK cell proliferation and activation (1,2). IL-2 also promotes peripheral development of Treg cells (4, 5). Conversely, IL-2 is involved in activation induced cell death (AICD) that is observed post T cell expansion by increasing levels of Fas on CD4+ T cells (3). The effects of IL-2 are mediated through a trimeric receptor complex consisting of IL-2Rα, IL-2Rβ and the common gamma chain, γc (1,2). IL-2 Rα binds exclusively to IL-2 with low affinity and increases binding affinity of the whole receptor complex including IL-2Rβ and γc subunits. IL-2Rβ is also used by IL-15 (1,2). The common γc is used by other cytokines including IL-4, IL-7, IL-9, IL-15, and IL-21 (1,2). Binding of IL-2 initiates signaling cascades involving Jak1, Jak3, Stat5 and the PI3K/Akt pathways (1,2).
