Description Interleukin-5 (IL-5) is a hematopoietic growth factor expressed in Th2, mast cells and eosinophils. IL-5 acts through its receptor, the IL-5 receptor (IL-5R) and is involved in B-cell growth and eosinophil activation. IL-5 has been shown to be and is regulated by GATA-3, in addition to other transcription factors. Human and mouse IL-5 are cross-reactive. Recombinant mouse IL-5 is a non-glycosylated, disulfide-linked homodimer. It is comprised of two 113 amino acid chains with a total molecular weight of 26.2 kDa.
