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-10 (IL-10), also known as human cytokine synthesis inhibitory factor (CSIF), is an anti-inflammatory cytokine.  IL-10 is a cytokine with multiple, pleiotropic, effects in immuno-regulation and inflammation. IL-10 downregulates the expression of Th1 cytokines, MHC class II antigens and co-stimulatory molecules on macrophages.  It also enhances B cell survival, proliferation, and antibody production. Knockout studies in mice suggested the function of this cytokine as an essential immuno-regulator in the intestinal tract and, indeed, patients with Crohn's disease react favorably towards treatment with recombinant interleukin-10-producing bacteria, demonstrating the importance of IL-10 for counteracting the hyperactive immune response in the human body.
