Development and Shelf-Life Determination of Recombinant Interleukin-2 (Proleukin)
Human interleukin-2 (IL-2), formerly known as T cell growth factor (TCGF), is a growth and/or differentiation factor for a variety of immunologically active cells including T cells, B cells, natural killer (NK) cells, lympho-kine-activated killer cells, and macrophages (Doyle et al., 1985; Ralph et al., 1987).
