Rat IL-1 Beta ELISA Kit

Interleukins are cytokines that were originally identified in leukocytes. They are now known to be expressed in a wide variety of cells, and are involved in a variety of cell signaling pathways. Interleukin 1 (IL-1) alpha and beta participate in the regulation of immune responses, inflammatory reactions, and hematopoiesis. IL-1 beta also plays a role in memory functions and regulation of the central nervous system (CNS), as well as cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. IL-1 beta is produced primarily in activated macrophages as an inactive precursor that is cleaved by caspase 1 to yield the active cytokine. It acts through two main receptors that also bind IL-1 alpha. IL-1 beta is also known as catabolin, IL1B, and IL1F2.

This kit is a solid-phase sandwich ELISA using two antibodies that are highly specific to rat IL-1 beta protein; one is precoated on the ELISA plate and the other is HRP-conjugated. This assay kit can be used to measure soluble rat IL-1 beta protein in serum, EDTA plasma, or cell culture supernatants.
