Lyophilized Standard Mix-Human Group 2 Panel A, 10-Plex. PN: HG2009A. One vial containing lyophilized recombinant human G-CSF, GM-CSF, IFNα2, IL-1α, IL-3, IL-5, IL-7, IL-11, IL-12p40, and IL-13. Note: If multiple analyte kits on the above target list are ordered as a panel, only one vial of standard mix is supplied for those analyte kits. 

STORAGE:  2-8 C in the dark.

IMPORTANT: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

Interferon-alpha (IFN-alpha), also known as leukocyte interferon, IFNA2, IFNA2b, alpha-2a interferon, IFNA, and IFN-alpha-2, represents a group of related but distinct proteins that share over 95% amino acid sequence homology. They are members of the type I interferon family which share a common cell surface receptor composed of two subunits, a 100 kDa ligand-binding subunit (IFN-alpha R2) and a 125 kDa ligand binding and signal transduction subunit (IFN-alpha R1) that is involved both in ligand binding and signal transduction. IFN-alpha has both anti-viral and immunomodulatory activities on target cells.
