Mouse IL-27 HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Product Information
This Mouse IL-27 overexpression lysate was created in HEK293 Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of IL-27 protein (Cat: 51107-M08H) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the mouse IL27 complex composed of EBI3 (O35228) (Met1-Pro228) and IL27A (Q8K3I6) (Phe29-Ser234) linked by an polypeptide linker was fused with the polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
The recombinant mouse IL27 comprises 442 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 49.5 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the protein is approximately 60 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions due to glycosylation.
Cell lysate was prepared by homogenization of the over-expressed cells in ice-cold modified RIPA Lysis Buffer with cocktail of protease inhibitors (Sigma). Cell debris was removed by centrifugation. Protein concentration was determined by Bradford assay (Bio-Rad protein assay, Microplate Standard assay). The cell lysate was boiled for 5 min in 1 x SDS loading buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl pH 6.8, 12.5% glycerol, 1% sodium dodecylsulfate, 0.01% bromophenol blue) containing 5% b-mercaptoethanol, and lyophilized.
IL-27 protein is a member of the IL-6 superfamily, which is expressed on monocytes, endothelial cells and dendritic cells. IL-27 protein is also referred as the IL-12 p35-related protein, p28, is one subunit of a heterodimeric cytokine complex, and associates with another subunit EBI3 (EBV-induced gene 3), an IL-12 p4-related protein (IL-27B). IL-27 protein is an early product of activated antigen-presenting cells and drives rapid clonal expansion of naive CD4(+) T cells and plays a role in the early regulation of Th1 cells initiation which drives efficient adaptive immune response. IL-27 protein has an antiproliferative activity on melanomas through WSX-1/STAT1 signaling. Thus, IL-27 protein may be an attractive candidate as an antitumor agent applicable to cancer immunotherapy.
