Human IFN-beta protein

Product Information

  • Product name

    Human IFN-beta protein

  • Sequence

    Amino acid sequence derived from human IFNβ (P01574) (Met1-Asn187) was expressed.

  • Activity

    Measured in antiviral assays using WISH human amnion cells infected with vesicular stomatitisvirus (VSV). The EC50 for this effect is 2-20 pg/mL.

  • Protein length

    The recombinant human IFNβ consists of 166 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 20 KDa. It migrates as an approximately 20-23 KDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.

  • Preparation method

    CHO Stable Cells

  • Purity

    > 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE

Product Properties

  • Formulation

    Lyophilized from sterile 10mM NaAC, 40mM Arg, 0.12mg/ml Met, 146mg/ml Sucrose, 0.1% PF-68, pH 4.5

  • Molecular weight

    20 kDa

  • Usage notes

    Always centrifuge tubes before opening. It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Human IFN-beta protein in 30mM Acetic acid not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

  • Storage instructions

    Lyophilized Human IFN-beta protein product should be stored desiccated below -20°C. Upon reconstitution, the protein should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -20°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

  • Shipping

    The product is shipped at ambient temperature.

Additional Information

  • Background

    Interferons (IFNs) are natural glycoproteins belonging to the cytokine superfamily, and are produced by the cells of the immune system of most vertebrates in response to challenges by foreign agents such as viruses, parasites and tumor cells. Interferon-beta (IFN beta) is an extra-cellular protein mediator of host defense and homeostasis. IFN beta has well-established direct antiviral, antiproliferative and immunomodulatory properties. Recombinant IFN beta is approved for the treatment of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. The recombinant IFN beta protein has the theoretical potential to either treat or cause autoimmune neuromuscular disorders by altering the complicated and delicate balances within the immune system networks. It is the most widely prescribed disease-modifying therapy for multiple sclerosis (MS). Large-scale clinical trials have established the clinical efficacy of IFN beta in reducing relapses and slowing disease progression in relapsing-remitting MS. IFN beta therapy was shown to be comparably beneficial for opticospinal MS (OSMS) and conventional MS in Japanese. IFN beta is effective in reducing relapses in secondary progressive MS and may have a modest effect in slowing disability progression. In addition to the common antiviral activity, IFN beta also induces increased production of the p53 gene product which promotes apoptosis, and thus has therapeutic effect against certain cancers. The role of IFN-beta in bone metabolism could warrant its systematic evaluation as a potential adjunct to therapeutic regimens of osteolytic diseases. Furthermore, IFN beta might play a beneficial role in the development of a chronic progressive CNS inflammation.
