Human Interleukin-15 (IL-15)
Interleukin 15 (IL-15) is a widely expressed pro-inflammatory cytokine related to IL-2. IL-15 promotes activation of T cells, neutrophils and macrophages and is critical to dendritic cell function in several model systems. IL-15 has been shown to play a role in several inflammatory disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and pulmonary inflammatory diseases. Emerging data suggests that IL-15 may serve as a good therapeutic target, as there appears to be a beneficial effect of IL-15 neutralization in models of psoriasis and diabetes. Human IL-15 shows activity on mouse cells.Recombinant human IL-15 is a non-glycosylated protein, containing 114 amino acids, with a molecular weight of 12.8 kDa.
