Recombinant Human IL-3 R alpha/CD123 Protein, CF

(2 citations)   
  • Purity
    >97%, by SDS-PAGE visualized with Silver Staining and quantitative densitometry by Coomassie® Blue Staining.
  • Endotoxin Level
    <0.10 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.
  • Activity
    Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. When Recombinant Human IL‑3 R alpha /CD123 is present at 1 μg/mL, the concentration of Recombinant Human IL‑3 (Catalog # 203-IL) that produces 50% of the optimal binding response is found to be approximately 8‑40 ng/mL.

Carrier Free
What does CF mean?
CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our recombinant proteins. Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration. The carrier free version does not contain BSA.
What formulation is right for me?
In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or as an ELISA standard. In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA could interfere.

Binding Activity
Recombinant Human IL-3 R alpha (Catalog # 301-R3/CF) binds Recombinant Human IL-3 in a functional ELISA. When Recombinant Human IL-3 R alpha  is present at 1 µg/mL, the concentration of Recombinant Human IL‑3 (Catalog # 203-IL) that produces 50% of the optimal binding response is approximately 8‑40 ng/mL.
1 μg/lane of Recombinant Human IL-3 R alpha /
CD123 was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) conditions and visualized by silver staining, showing bands 55 kDa and 58 kDa.
Background: IL-3 R alpha/CD123
Interleukin 3 is a pleiotropic cytokine produced primarily by activated T cells or mast cells. IL‑3 stimulates the proliferation and differentiation of hemopoietic cells including the pluripotent hematopoietic stem cells as well as various lineage‑committed cells. The biological effects of IL‑3 on the various cell types are mediated by the binding of IL‑3 to specific cell surface receptor complexes. The functional high‑affinity human IL‑3 receptor is a heterodimer consisting of a ligand binding alpha subunit and the beta subunit. The alpha subunit alone binds IL‑3 with low affinity. The beta  subunit does not bind IL‑3 by itself but is required for the high‑affinity binding of IL‑3 to the heterodimeric receptor complex. The beta  subunit has also been found to be a component of the high‑affinity receptor complex for IL‑5 and GM‑CSF. Both the alpha and the beta  subunits are members of the cytokine receptor superfamily.
