Recombinant Rat Interleukin 5
Colony-Stimulating Factor, eosinophil
Eosinophil Differentiation Factor, EDF
T-cell replacing factor, TRF
The IL5 gene is located on chromosome 11 in rats, in close proximity to the genes encoding IL3, IL4, and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (CSF2), which are often co-expressed in TH2 cells. Through binding to the IL5 receptor, IL5 stimulates B cell growth and increases immunoglobulin secretion and is also a key mediator in eosinophil activation. Interleukin 5 has long been associated with the cause of several allergic diseases including allergic rhinitis and asthma. Rat IL5 is a TH2 cytokine that is part of the hematopoietic family. Unlike other members of this cytokine family (namely IL3 and CSF2), this glycoprotein is a homodimer in its active form.
