IL-10 (human) (rec.) (His)
|Synonyms||Interleukin-10; Cytokine Synthesis Inhibitory Factor; CSIF|
|Source/Host||HEK 293 cells|
|Sequence||Human IL-10 (aa 19-178) is fused at the C-terminus to a His-tag.|

|Product Specification Sheet|
Interleukin-10 (IL-10) is a cytokine produced by activated Th2 cells, B cells, keratinocytes and monocytes/macrophages. In vitro murine and human IL-10 inhibits cytokine synthesis by Th1 cells, natural killer cells and monocytes/macrophages. Several studies have suggested the potential application of IL-10 as an anti-inflammatory agent in the treatment of septic shock and as an immunosuppressive agent in certain T cell mediated autoimmune diseases.
