Mouse keratinocyte-derived cytokine (KC) is the homolog of human chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand 1 (CXCL1) protein, a small cytokine belonging to the CXC chemokine subfamily. It was previously known as GRO1 oncogene, GRO-alpha, and melanoma growth stimulating activity (MSGA); it is also called growth-regulated alpha protein, secretory protein N51, and platelet-derived growth factor-inducible protein KC. Mouse KC is also homologous to rat CINC-1. KC was originally identified after induction by platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF). Expression of KC is also induced by mitogens in vascular smooth cells, endothelial cells, and macrophages. In mouse, KC activity is mediated by the interleukin-8 (IL-8) receptor, which also binds mouse MIP-2. These two chemokines have been suggested to be mouse homologs of human IL-8.

This kit is a solid-phase sandwich ELISA using two antibodies that are highly specific to mouse KC protein; one is precoated on the ELISA plate and the other is HRP-conjugated. This assay kit can be used to measure soluble mouse KC protein in serum, EDTA plasma, or cell culture supernatants.
