Source: Recombinant human IL-10 (hIL-10) Ser19 Asn178 (Accession # NP_000563) was expressed in human
293 cells at Cell Signaling Technology.
Molecular Characterization: Recombinant hIL-10
contains no “tags” and has a calculated MW of 18,647.
DTT-reduced protein migrates as an 18 kDa polypeptide and
non-reduced protein migrates as a 16 kDa polypeptide due
to intramolecular cystines. The expected amino-terminal
SPGQG of recombinant hIL-10 was verified by amino acid
Endotoxin: Less than 0.01 ng endotoxin/1μg hIL-10.
Purity: >98% as determined by SDS-PAGE of 6 μg
reduced (+) and non-reduced (-) recombinant hIL-10. All
lots are greater than 98% pure.
Maintain sterility. Storage at -20ºC should be in a manual defrost
hIL-10 (ng/ml)
Western blot analysis of extracts from RPMI 8226 cells,
untreated or treated with hIL-10 for 10 minutes, using PhosphoStat3 (Tyr705) (D3A7) Rabbit mAb #9145 (upper) or Stat3
Antibody #9132 (lower).
The purity of recombinant hIL-10 was determined by SDS-PAGE
of 6 µg reduced (+) and non-reduced (-) recombinant hIL-10
and staining overnight with Coomassie Blue.
Bioactivity: The bioactivity of recombinant hIL-10 was
determined in a MC/9 cell proliferation assay. The ED50 of
each lot is between 0.3-1.4 ng/ml.

Applications: Optimal concentration for the desired application
should be determined by the user.
Background: IL-10 is an anti-inflammatory cytokine that is produced by T cells, NK cells and macrophages (1,2). IL-10 initiates
signal transduction by binding to a cell surface receptor complex
consisting of IL-10 RI and IL-10 RII (1). Binding of IL-10 leads
to the activation of Jak1 and Tyk2, which phosphorylates Stat3
(1,3). The anti-inflammatory activity of IL-10 is due to its ability
to block signaling through other cytokine receptors, notably
IFNγ receptor, by upregulating expression of SOCS1 (1,3). In
addition, IL-10 promotes T cell tolerance by inhibiting tyrosine
phosphorylation of CD28 (4,5). IL-10 is an important negative
regulator of the immune response, which allows for maintenance
of pregnancy (1). In contrast, increased IL-10 levels contribute to
persistent Leishmania major infections (6).

The proliferation of MC/9 cells treated with increasing
concentrations of hIL-10 in the presence of 1 pg/ml mouse IL-4
#5208 was assessed. After 72 hours treatment with hIL-10, cells
were incubated with a tetrazolium salt and the OD450-OD650 was
Carrier free: Add sterile PBS, or PBS containing protein to minimize absorption of hIL-10 to surfaces. Solubilize for 30 minutes
at room temperature with occasional gentle vortexing. Stock
hIL-10 should be greater than 50 μg/ml.
Storage: Stable in lyophilized state at 4ºC for 1 year after
receipt. Sterile stock solutions reconstituted with carrier protein
are stable at 4ºC for 2 months and at -20ºC for 6 months. Avoid
repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Carrier free: Lyophilized from a 0.22 μm filtered solution of PBS,
pH 7.2.
With carrier: Add sterile PBS, or PBS containing 1% bovine or
human serum albumin or 5-10% FBS to a final hIL-10 concentration of greater than 50 μg/ml. Solubilize for 30 minutes at
room temperature with occasional gentle vortexing.
Formulation: With carrier: Lyophilized from a 0.22 μm filtered
solution of PBS, pH 7.2 containing 20 μg BSA per 1 μg hIL-10.
