Human IL-31 protein, His Tag
Amino acid sequence derived from human IL31 (NP_001014358.1) (Met1-Thr164) was expressed with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
Measured by its ability to induce STAT3 activation in U‑87 cells. The ED50 for this effect is 11-45 ng/mL. The ED50 for this effect is 11-45 ng/mL.
- Protein length
The recombinant human IL31 consists of 152 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 17.3 KDa. It migrates as an approximately 31.8 KDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
- Preparation method
> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4.

- Usage notes
Always centrifuge tubes before opening. It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Human IL31 protein, His Tag in sterile ddH2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
- Storage instructions
Lyophilized Human IL31 protein, His Tag 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.

IL-31 produced by activated Th2-type T cells, cooperates with a heterodimeric receptor consisting of IL-31 Receptor Anatagonist and Onconstatin-M Receptor that is continuesly expressed on epithelial cells and keratinocytes. IL-31 plays a role in the promotion of allergic skin disorders and in regulating other allergic diseases, such as asthma. IL-31 is involved in the itching sensation and endorses the scratching behavior in NC/Nga mice with atopic dermatitis. IL-31 expression is connectd with CLA(+) T cells and contributes to the development of atopic dermatitis-induced skin inflammation and pruritus. IL-31 is a powerful inducer of proinflammatory mediators in human colonic SEMFs. IL-31 takes part as a proinflammatory cytokine derived from Th2 cells. Serum IL-31 level is higher in patients with atopic dermatitis. IL-31 is involved in a broad range of immune- & non-immune cells & possesses potential pleiotropic physiological functions, including regulating hematopoiesis & immune response, causing inflammatory bowel disease, airway hypersensitivity & dermatitis.
