Recombinant Human IL-4R alpha Fc Chimera Avi-tag Protein, CF Summary

Purity
>95%, 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
The biotin to protein ratio is greater than 0.7 as determined by the HABA assay. Measured by its ability to inhibit IL-4-dependent proliferation of TF‑1 human erythroleukemic cells. Kitamura, T. et al. (1989) J. Cell Physiol. 140:323. The ED50 for this effect is 5-30 ng/mL in the presence 0.2 ng/mL of Recombinant Human IL‑4 (Catalog # 204-IL). Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. When Biotinylated Recombinant Human IL-4R alpha Fc Chimera Avi-tag (Catalog # AVI7700) is captured on EvenCoat Streptavidin Coated Plates (Catalog # CP004), the concentration of Recombinant Human IL-4 (Catalog # 204-IL) that produces 50% of the optimal binding response is approximately 3-20 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.

Background: IL-4R alpha

Interleukin 4 Receptor alpha (IL-4R alpha ), also known as CD124 and BSF receptor, is a widely expressed 140 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein in the class I cytokine receptor family. IL-4R alpha plays an important role in Th2-biased immune responses, alternative macrophage activation, mucosal immunity, allergic inflammation, tumor progression, and atherogenesis (1-5). Mature human IL-4R alpha consists of a 207 amino acid (aa) extracellular domain (ECD) that contains a cytokine binding region and one fibronectin type III domain, a 24 aa transmembrane segment, and a 569 aa cytoplasmic domain that contains one Box 1 motif and one ITIM motif (6, 7). Within the ECD, human IL-4R alpha shares 51% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat IL-4R alpha. Soluble forms of IL-4R alpha, generated by alternate splicing or proteolysis, retain ligand binding properties and inhibit IL-4 bioactivity (8-11). IL-4R alpha is a component of two distinct receptor complexes and shows species selectivity between human and mouse (6). It can associate with the common gamma chain ( gamma c) to form the IL-4 responsive type I receptor in which gamma c increases the affinity for IL-4 and enables signaling (12, 13). It can alternatively associate with IL-13R alpha 1 to form the type II receptor which is responsive to both IL-4 and IL-13 (14, 15). The use of shared receptor components contributes to the overlapping biological effects of IL-4 and IL-13 as well as other cytokines that utilize gamma c (i.e. IL-2, IL-7, IL-9, IL-15, and IL-21) (16, 17).
