Description IL-2. also known as T cell growth factor (TCGF). is an immunoregulatory lymphokine produced by T-cells in response to antigenic or mitogenic stimulation. IL-2/IL-2R signaling is required for T-cell proliferation and other fundamental functions which are essential for the immune response. IL-2 stimulates growth and differentiation of B-cells. NK cells. lymphokine activated killer cells. monocytes. macrophages and oligodendrocytes. This recombinant human IL-2 is a 15.4 kDa protein. containing 133 amino acid residues including one intra chain disulfide bond. Recombinant human IL-2 was overexpressed in E. coli and purified by conventional chromatography. after refolding of the isolated inclusion bodies in a renaturation buffer.Function: Produced by T-cells in response to antigenic or mitogenic stimulation. this protein is required for T-cell proliferation and other activities crucial to regulation of the immune response. Can stimulate B-cells. monocytes. lymphokine-activated killer cells. natural killer cells. and glioma cells.Subcellular Location: Secreted protein.Disease: A chromosomal aberration involving IL2 is found in a form of T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL). Translocation t(4;16)(q26;p13) with involves TNFRSF17.Pharmaceutical: Available under the name Proleukin (Chiron). Used in patients with renal cell carcinoma or metastatic melanoma.Similarity: Belongs to the IL-2 family. Sequence Length (aa): 153 MW: 17628 OMIM: 147680; gene.
