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.

Interleukin 3 (Accession P01586) is a member of the interleukin family. It is produced by activated T Cells, macrophages, and mast cells. IL-3 is integral in the proliferation of hematopoietic cells and plays a role in the differentiation of other cells of myeloid lineage with conjunction of EPO, GM-CSF, and IL-6. IL-3 expression bridges innate and adaptive immunity pathways. IL-3 may induce IL-2 and provides similar functions as to those of IL-5 and GM-CSF. It shows It has been shown to participate in stress responses and schizophrenia.
