In Western blot applications, this antibody detects a band at ~18kDa. A suggested positive control is HL60 cell lysate.
PA5-19981 can be used with blocking peptide PEP-0105.
A novel cytokine was recently identified in human and mouse and designated IL-21 , which has significant homology to IL-2, IL-4, and IL-15. The receptor for IL-21 (IL-21R, also termed NILR for novel Interleukin receptor) is a new member of the class I cytokine receptor family. IL-21R forms a complex with the common cytokine receptor -gamma chain, -gammac, and mediates IL-21 signaling. IL-21 and its receptor activate JAK-STAT signaling pathway. IL-21 is expressed in activated T cells, and HL-60 and THP-1 cell lines. IL-21 plays a role in the proliferation and maturation of NK, B and T cell populations.
