|Immunogen||Purified recombinant human IL-16|
|Full Name||interleukin 16|
|Alternate Names||prIL-16; Lymphocyte chemoattractant factor; PRIL16; IL-16; NIL16; LCF; Pro-interleukin-16|
|Application Note||ELISA: This antibody can be used as a capture antibody in sandwich ELISA applications for human IL-16 detection in combination with a monoclonal tracer/detection antibody (HRP-conjugated, Cat. No.: ARG10203). Suggested Capture Coating Dose: 0.3μg/well; Substrate: TMB.
If the above suggested conditions are followed, approximately 20pg/mL of IL-16 in serum/plasma or 15 pg/mL of IL-16 in cell medium/urine can be detected with an assay range of 0-1000 pg/mL.
* The dilutions indicate recommended starting dilutions and the optimal dilutions or concentrations should be determined by the scientist.
|Purification||Protein G affinity purified|
|Buffer||0.01M PBS (pH 7.2)|
|Storage instruction||For continuous use, store undiluted antibody at 2-8°C for up to a week. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20°C or below. Storage in frost free freezers is not recommended. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles. Suggest spin the vial prior to opening. The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|

|Background||Interleukin 16 (IL-16) is a pleiotropic cytokine, possessing immunomodulation function to allergic inflammatory diseases such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. IL-16 utilizes CD4 as its primary receptor. IL-16 is a chemo-attractant to CD4+ T helper 1 cells. To CD4+ T helper 2 cells, IL-16 has an inhibitory effect on the antigen-mediated CD3/T cell receptor activation. IL16 has been shown to suppress HIV infection in lymphocytes and monocytes.|
|Function||Interleukin-16 stimulates a migratory response in CD4+ lymphocytes, monocytes, and eosinophils. Primes CD4+ T-cells for IL-2 and IL-15 responsiveness. Also induces T-lymphocyte expression of interleukin 2 receptor. Ligand for CD4.
Isoform 1 may act as a scaffolding protein that anchors ion channels in the membrane.
Isoform 3 is involved in cell cycle progression in T-cells. Appears to be involved in transcriptional regulation of SKP2 and is probably part of a transcriptional repression complex on the core promoter of the SKP2 gene. May act as a scaffold for GABPB1 (the DNA-binding subunit the GABP transcription factor complex) and HDAC3 thus maintaining transcriptional repression and blocking cell cycle progression in resting T-cells.

|PTM||Isoform 3 is synthesized as a chemo-attractant inactive precursor in hemopoietic tissues and is proteolytically cleaved by caspase-3 to yield IL-16.|
