Name : IL-5, Rat

Product Concentration :

Background :
Interleukin-5 (IL-5), produced by mast cells, T cells and eosinophils, mediates the activities of eosinophil differentiating factor, B cell growth factor II and T cell-replacing factor (TRF). It can increase production and mobilization of eosinophils and CD34+ progenitors from the bone marrow. IL-5 plays an important role in inducing cell-mediated immunity against parasitic infections and certain tumors. IL-5 also promotes differentiation of basophils and primes them for histamine and leukotriene release.
