View High-quality Cytokines Brochure
Cytokines are secreted immunomodulatory molecules that play an essential role in cell communication and immune reactions. Cytokines are produced throughout the body by cells of diverse embryological origins. Cytokines are defined based on their presumed function, cell of secretion, or target of action. For example, interleukins (ILs) are secreted by leukocytes and can affect the cellular responses of leukocytes.
Some cytokines, such as GM-CSF, IFN gamma (IFNγ), and IL-21, have been considered ideal targets for antitumor therapies and are being evaluated clinically. In addition to single-agent treatment, cytokines may be used with other immunomodulatory drugs, such as adoptive cell therapy, cancer vaccines, checkpoint inhibitors (anti-CTLA-4 or anti-PD-1/PD-L1), and cancer-directed monoclonal antibodies.
Sino Biological has launched a comprehensive collection of high-quality bioreagents to support the study and application of cytokines.
