Mouse IL-6 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 6 (IL-6) is a cytokine that mediates a range of biological functions, including the inflammatory response and the maturation of B cells. IL-6 acts on B cells, T cells, hepatocytes, hematopoietic progenitor cells, and cells of the central nervous system (CNS). It is expressed at sites of acute and chronic inflammation, where it is secreted into the serum and binds the IL-6 receptor alpha. The IL-6 gene, in humans, is linked to many inflammation-associated disease states, including diabetes mellitus and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. IL-6 is also known as interferon beta-2 (IFNB2), B-cell stimulatory factor-2 (BSF-2), CTL differentiation factor (CDF), B-cell stimulatory factor 2 (BSF2), B-cell differentiation factor, and hybridoma growth factor (HGF).

This kit is a solid-phase sandwich ELISA using two antibodies that are highly specific to mouse IL-6; one is precoated on the ELISA plate and the other is HRP-conjugated. This assay kit can be used to measure soluble mouse IL-6 protein in serum, EDTA plasma, or cell culture supernatants.
