IL-21 enhances the proliferation/differentiation of stimulated B-cells, the proliferation of bone marrow progenitor cells, and increases the activity of NK cells and disease-specific CD8+ T-cells. IL-21 signals through binding to the specific type I cytokine receptor IL-21R, coupled with the common cytokine receptor g chain (gc), initiating the activation of the JAK/STAT signalling pathway.
Goat anti Human Interleukin-21 antibody is suitable for use in immunocytochemistry on human spleen or tonsil cells.
