Recombinant Mouse IL‑10 R alpha (Catalog # 474-MR)
Measured by its ability to neutralize IL‑10-induced proliferation in the MC/9‑2 mouse mast cell line [Thompson-Snipes, L. et al. (1991) J. Exp. Med. 173:507]. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 1-3 µg/mL in the presence of 1 ng/mL Recombinant Mouse IL‑10.
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
Cell Proliferation Induced by IL‑10 and Neutralization by Mouse IL‑10 R alpha Antibody. Recombinant Mouse IL‑10 (Catalog # 417-ML) stimulates proliferation in the MC/9‑2 mouse mast cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Proliferation elicited by Recombinant Mouse IL‑10 (1 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Mouse IL‑10 R alpha Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF-474-NA). The ND50 is typically 1-3 µg/mL.

Background: IL-10 R alpha
IL-10, initially designated cytokine synthesis inhibitory factor (CSIF), is a potent immunosuppressant of macrophage functions. IL-10 is also a pleiotropic cytokine with multiple immunostimulatory as well as immunosuppressive effects on a variety of other cell types. IL-10 binds specifically and with high affinity to cell-surface receptors. Mouse and human cDNA clones encoding the ligand-binding IL-10 receptor (IL-10 R) have been isolated. The IL-10 R mRNA has been detected in all cell types that are known to respond to IL-10.
Human and mouse IL-10 receptors are structurally related to the IFN-gamma receptor. These receptors are members of the class II subgroup of the cytokine receptor superfamily. The deduced amino acid sequence of human IL-10 R is approximately 60% identical to mouse IL-10 R. Although human IL-10 has cross-species activities and is active on mouse cells, mouse IL-10 is species-specific in its actions and does not bind to the human IL-10 receptor. The human IL-10 R gene has been mapped to chromosome 11q23.3. Recombinant IL-10 soluble receptor, consisting of the extracellular domain of IL-10 R, binds IL-10 with high affinity in solution and is a potent IL-10 antagonist.
