Detection of Mouse IL‑27/IL‑35 EBI3 Subunit by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of CHO Chinese hamster ovary cell line either mock transfected or transfected with mouse EBI3. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Rat Anti-Mouse IL‑27/IL‑35 EBI3 Subunit Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB18341) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF005). A specific band was detected for IL‑27/IL‑35 EBI3 Subunit at approximately 30 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: IL-27/IL-35 EBI3 Subunit
IL-27 is a heterodimeric cytokine comprised of the IL-12 p35-related protein, p28, and the IL-12 p40-related protein, EBI3 (Epstein-Barr virus-induced gene 3). IL-27 is expressed by monocytes, endothelial cells and dendritic cells. It binds TCCR/WSX-1 on naive CD4+ T cells and induces the expression of a functional IL-12 receptor, making these cells sensitive to IL-12-mediated Th1 cell development. Human EBI3 also associates with the p35 subunit of IL-12 to form IL-35 which is important for immunosuppressive Treg cell induction. EBI3 is 61% amino acid (aa) identical to mouse EBI3 and includes an 20 aa signal peptide anda 209 aa mature protein with two fibronectin type III domains.
