Description

IL-15 Protein, Human is a pleiotropic cytokine, including T, B and NK cell-stimulatory activities.

Background

Interleukin 15 is a cytokine that shares many biological properties with IL-2, including T, B and NK cell-stimulatory activities. Interleukin-15 has significant potential in cancer immunotherapy as an activator of antitumor CD8 T and natural killer (NK) cells[1]. Interleukin-15 (IL-15) is a pleiotropic cytokine and a member of the four α-helix bundle family of cytokines which include IL-2, IL-4, IL-7, IL-9, IL-15 and IL-21. IL-15 exhibits a broad biological activity and induces the differentiation and proliferation of T, B and natural killer (NK) cells. As a potent pro-inflammatory cytokine, IL-15 plays an important and complex role in autoimmune disease and inflammation. IL-15 plays a pivotal role in some hematological malignancies and presents anti-tumor effects. The direct administration of IL-15 has shown anti-tumor effects in several preclinical mouse tumor models[2].

  • Reconstitution Calculator

  • Dilution Calculator

  • Specific Active Calculator

The reconstitution calculator equation

Volume (to add to vial) = Mass (in vial) ÷ Desired Reconstitution Concentration

Volume (to add to vial) = Mass (in vial) ÷ Desired Reconstitution Concentration
= ÷

The dilution calculator equation

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)

This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)
× = ×
C1   V1   C2   V2

The specific active calculator equation

Specific Active (Unit/mg) = 106 ÷ Biological Activity (ED50)

Specific Active (Unit/mg) = 106 ÷ Biological Activity (ED50)
Unit/mg = 106 ÷ ng/mL
