background

Interleukin 15 (IL-15) is a widely expressed 14 kDa cytokine that is structurally and functionally related to IL-2 and plays an important role in many immunological diseases. IL-15 is a cytokine that stimulates the proliferation of T-lymphocytes. Stimulation by IL15 requires interaction of IL15 with components of the IL2 receptor, including IL2RB and probably IL2RG but not IL2RA.

molecular weight

The protein has a predicted MW of 12.8 kDa same as Tris-Bis PAGE result.

available size

Function
FUNCTION: Cytokine that plays a major role in the development of inflammatory and protective immune responses to microbial invaders and parasites by modulating immune cells of both the innate and adaptive immune systems (PubMed:15123770). Stimulates the proliferation of natural killer cells, T-cells and B-cells and promotes the secretion of several cytokines (PubMed:8178155, PubMed:9326248). In monocytes, induces the production of IL8 and monocyte chemotactic protein 1/CCL2, two chemokines that attract neutrophils and monocytes respectively to sites of infection (PubMed:9326248). Unlike most cytokines, which are secreted in soluble form, IL15 is expressed in association with its high affinity IL15RA on the surface of IL15-producing cells and delivers signals to target cells that express IL2RB and IL2RG receptor subunits (PubMed:10233906, PubMed:23104097, PubMed:8026467). Binding to its receptor triggers the phosphorylation of JAK1 and JAK3 and the recruitment and subsequent phosphorylation of signal transducer and activator of transcription-3/STAT3 and STAT5 (PubMed:7568001). In mast cells, induces the rapid tyrosine phosphorylation of STAT6 and thereby controls mast cell survival and release of cytokines such as IL4 (By similarity). {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P48346, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10233906, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15123770, ECO:0000269|PubMed:23104097, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7568001, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8026467, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8178155, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9326248}.
Subellular location
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: [Isoform IL15-S48AA]: Secreted.; SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: [Isoform IL15-S21AA]: Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=IL15-S21AA is not secreted, but rather is stored intracellularly, appearing in the nucleus and cytoplasmic components.
Tissues
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Most abundant in placenta and skeletal muscle. It is also detected in the heart, lung, liver and kidney. IL15-S21AA is preferentially expressed in tissues such as testis and thymus.

Data

SPR with Human IL-15 Protein
Human IL-2 R beta, His Tag captured on CM5 Chip via Anti-His Antibody can bind Human IL-15, No Tag with an affinity constant of 5.9 nM as determined in SPR assay (Biacore T200).
ELISA with Human IL-15 Protein
Immobilized Human IL-15, No Tag at 2µg/ml (100µl/Well) on the plate. Dose response curve for Human IL-15RA, His Tag with the EC50 of 15.4ng/ml determined by ELISA.
