ICOS,CD278,AILIM,Inducible T-cell costimulator
Human ICOS (C136S, C137S), His Tag (ICS-H52H6) is expressed from human 293 cells (HEK293). It contains AA Glu 21 - Phe 141 (Accession # Q9Y6W8-1 (C136S, C137S)).
Predicted N-terminus: Glu 21
This protein carries a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
The protein has a calculated MW of 15.2 kDa. The protein migrates as 23-30 kDa under reducing (R) condition (SDS-PAGE) due to glycosylation.
Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.
>85% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in PBS, pH7.4. Normally trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.

Inducible T-cell costimulator (ICOS) is also known as Activation-inducible lymphocyte immunomediatory molecule (AILIM), CD278, which belongs to the CD28 family of immune costimulatory receptors consisting of CD28, CTLA-4 and PD-1. ICOS enhances all basic T-cell responses to a foreign antigen, namely proliferation, secretion of lymphokines, up-regulation of molecules that mediate cell-cell interaction, and effective help for antibody secretion by B-cells. CD278 / ICOS prevents the apoptosis of pre-activated T-cells and also plays a critical role in CD40-mediated class switching of immunoglobin isotypes.
