Interleukin-10 (IL-10), originally known as Cytokine Synthesis Inhibitory Factor (CSIF), is an 18.7kD protein that shares over 80% sequence homology with the Epstein-Barr Virus protein BCRFI. The reported biological activities of IL-10, which may be inter-related, include inhibition of macrophage mediated cytokine synthesis, suppression of the delayed type hyper-sensitivity response and stimulation of the Th2 cell response which results in elevated antibody production.
Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
